    Default Ed's color scheme and band logo

    My apologies if this has been discussed to death in times past - I am not familiar with all the details of things over the years with the band.

    The original Frankenstrat and colors that made Ed famous - see below. It appears that somewhere along the way he completely stopped using the guitar with the colours. I might be way off but when I seen them in Toronto and other clips from shows, etc. all he uses is either a straight black, creme, or plain white color.

    Any reason why the Franstrat color scheme was ditched?

    Also, what is up with the logo. It appears there is like 38 different variants of the band logo - is this just another of the many dysfunction with the band or is there a reason behind it?

    He stopped using the Frankenstrat by 1984 when he started endorsing Kramer. When he stopped endorsing Kramer, he just didnít want to play striped guitars anymore I guess, although he had striped versions of his EBMM and Wolfgang from time to time. People just change.

    Not really sure what you mean about the band logo. The band has only had two different style logos. The wings version with Dave, and the rings version with Sam.

    The logo was flat, then curved, then wrapped around, then flat again.

    Yeah you replied before I could edit my post. The wings (flat) version is with Dave, and the rounded rings version was with Sam. When Dave came back they obviously went back to the original version of the logo.

    Heh. Oh, just to clarify... because I bet some have forgot about this, but they did use the same "Sammy era" swirl logo with Gary. So technically that logo was used during the Sammy era AND the one album and tour with Gary.

    And as Brett keeps saying, there really were only 2 logos. Sure, they use slight variances, like different color schemes, chrome-looking or solid color, etc. But all bands do that stuff with their logo(s). They like to make changes so they that don't use the exact same logo on all their albums and merch.

    Also, some of the logos in those google search results were made by fans, which account for some of those different-looking ones.
