    Default The Guitar Man - Japanese EVH Book/Magazine

    Anybody else seen this? Looks like theyve got fantastic pictures of EVHs gear from the past through the most recent Japan tour. It even looks like he had a full-on original black/white Frankie replica, sans Floyd! I saw a few pics on Instagram and tracked down the eBay listing where this guy bought it. It's probably related to the Young Guitar publication? Anyways, I'd love to see more of the book, if anybody has it.

    I really like the red stealth. Wish they would add that to the current Wolfgang lineup!

    Yeah , I've wanted to get this for ages. Notice that pic from 1977 with the black " Unknown V " it was taken by Jenny Lens. I've only seen the one other one that's been online for ages.

    Here's the other original one from 2003 that they revised and expanded with the alternate cover that you posted above.






    The pictures in these magazines from Japan are amazing. Can't say I've ever seen one of EVH with two guitars strapped on at the same time like this one.

    That is the first issue Heisenberg and the one Jedi posted is the third. I have the second one. Its a great mag but damn it, it would be helpful if I could read Japanese... I was going to grab the 3rd one, but I dont know how much more it would have in it to justify the price of it. There are not cheap..

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    I have both the second and third editions shown here and they are different. The second one is much more comprehensive and overall better quality in my opinion. They are expensive, but every Van Halen guitar fan should have one.
