    No offense but I consider the "early days" to be pre-VH 1. These all seem to be around 1984 which is not "early" when it comes to VH.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    It's actually more accurate to say these photos are from the last days of the original Van Halen lineup.

    So does the one vs. two stars on the headstock denote primary and backup?

    Interesting catch. The volume knobs look different as well.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    Wouldn't the '5150' and '1984' space tape be enough of a clue ? LOL

    Kidding .
    I think they were just separate designs and 'adornments' for those guitars .
