    hey guys. my buddy who knows the Long Island Guitar Center's manager just told me about this.
    apparently, these guitars have $100,000 price tags cause they are really not for sale...
    Guitar Center has them in their museum in the LA store i believe.

    Can any of the Los Angeles VHLinkers confirm this with a pic, perhaps??

    This does seem odd.

    Is this the 5150 Kramer? The one he uses in Live Without A Net?

    Hopefully someone can follow up on this.

    BTW, did anyone see the Steven Weber Show last night? One of the cast members was playing a guitar that had a very similar paint job as the yellow/black guitar from VH II. It was a bit hard to tell because it had a pick guard on it, but the paint job was similar.

    Well there you have it. This is why there has been no new album. Ed has decided to sell all of his guitars and quit making music. He's gonna be like John Mellencamp a few years ago. He claimed to quit the music scene and took up painting. Look for the Wolfgang collection in a gallery near you very soon.

    as far as i know, the striped one is a kramer that he built and played on tour as a backup to the 5150.
    the yellow music man is the same one he used non-stop from 1991-1995 when the Wolfie prototypes were built.

    i guess he figured he didn't need them around collecting dust, and i think guitar center paid 10 Gs for the musicman and under $1000 for the striped guitar. not bad...

    anyway, i think guitar center has $100,000 price tags on them just to scare people away from even asking about buying them. I think GC purchased them for the sole purpose of keeping them in the museum, but it's a bit hard to tell all the way over here on the east coast!

    Holy shit, 1000 bucks????? Quick, show of hands; who would have shelled out $1000 for that bad boy. EVERYBODY better have at least one hand in the air on this poll.

    Didn't Eddie have a whole shit load of back-up geetars on those tours.
    I remember a photo in Guitar World when they did a story on the 5150 tour that shows a rack of at 15/20 axes.
    I wouldn't be surprised if these filtered into the general population at some point....

    Don't know about the yellow and black one, but as far as the striped kramers, he had loads of them, and probably still does in his guitar room.
    If you see different videos of his early tours, and following tours right up until he started using the EBMM you can see he played more than one. Which one does the store have?

    I remember years ago that MTV did a special or a countdown show from that Guitar Center. It was before "Van Halen 3" came out, I think. If memory serves me correctly, Eddie's yellow Music Man was there. It was the one that had the black 5150 stickers near the bridge. They also had one of Alex's drum sets there too. Some platinum albums were hanging on the wall.
