    Default Best way to find an EVH Music Man

    I apologize if there is another thread on this, I searched quickly and did not find anything.
    The time has finally come where I have the approval of the "home finance committee" to begin the search for an EVH Music Man. Over the years of dreaming for the day I would get one, I have sporadically seen them on Ebay, Reverb, and Guitar Center. Currently however it seems like the well has run mostly dry, except for a handful in Japan for some reason unknown to me. Or I am just not looking in the right places and not using the right search criteria. So my question to those who have had success with their search is, where in the heck do you find one of these? I don't want a case queen, one with an autograph, or a beater. A couple of days ago there was 1 on Ebay in the natural color but the conditional seemed a little rough for what I am looking for. Just a nice players guitar with no mods in any of the colors other than pink. I really don't want to go global with my search and would like to stay in the US. Also I am not in a huge hurry to get one. The home finance approval does not currently have an expiration date.
    Thank you in advance for any tips or tricks that you are willing to share.

    There has been an influx of those guitars, and the lower budget models, from Japanese sellers lately!

    I've seen a few on eBay, without doing a "typical" search.
    Meaning, I didn't simply type in "EBMM" for example. Try "Van Halen Guitar" or EVH Guitar".

    Be prepared to do some downward scrolling...

    Thanks for looking!

    I saw a rough red one at the GC in Hollywood last summer, I think for $1895. I saw a nice blue one at my local GC about a year ago and it had sold minutes earlier for $1000. They are not hard to find. Do a national CL search, watch eBay, Reverb and the GC's site. EBMM also has a chat board where they pop up once in a while. I think most people who have them have more than one, so you should always ask if they have any besides the one you see for sale. I have two now, but have had three others. And if you really hate money, check out Gila Guitars. If you come across a pink one for a good deal, I'd grab it and then flip or trade it for the color you want. Pink ones are pretty desirable.

    I have a black quilt top that is in really good condition. It hasn't faded to the green hue that most transparent black ones do.I would consider selling it. I play a purple flame top that is beat to crap. P.M. me if you are interested. Good luck!
