    Keep the faith guys and gals keep the faith. Here is another update as of 4/7/01 from our buddy Andrew McNiece.

    VAN HALEN - BIGGER UPDATE!:
    A few days ago I mentioned there was positive Van Halen news relating to Eddie Van Halen's quest for the perfect guitar sound to be put in place for the upcoming, but as yet unconfirmed David Lee Roth re-union.
    Hopefully this might be the precursor to further good news, or even a statement from the band themselves.

    A long time trademark of Van Halen was Eddie's striped Frankenstein guitar.
    It was so called the Frankenstein because Eddie built it himself. He took an old Fender Strat body and added a bolted neck and other non-traditional stuff to it. It was later painted red with white stripes added and became a Van Halen trademark.
    Eddie first used the guitar on the band's first 1977 demo's and only used it during the DLR era.
    In 1984, after David Lee Roth left the band, Eddie Van Halen retired his treasured Frankenstein guitar and created a new sound with Kramer guitars for new singer Sammy Hagar. Eddie went on to sell the instrument to an English guitarist.

    I have been informed that Eddie Van Halen has contacted the buyer of his guitar and has made him an offer he couldn't refuse to buy it back for the upcoming tour. It is part of Ed's quest to bring back the trademark sound of the band pre-1984.
    My source is well know to the site and has previously always been reliable, so for me, this news seems both accurate and very positive.
    More news hopefully when available.

    Only problem with this is that Eddie never sold the guitar in the first place.

    More controversy then.... Let's all try to get to the bottom of this. Did he sell it or not? I have no idea.

    According to an Inside article a couple years back, Frankenstrat is safely resting, retired, in a case in Ed's guitar room...I'm pretty sure he still has it...

    This is a trip. I remember hearing about this and seem to recollect that guitar they are talking about. I think it was from way back but not the original franky. Read about it somewhere. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    Hate to break it to ya'll...
    but the guitar that is being refered to in the article was sold ! Eddie considered the guitar to be a "piece of junk", although the unique brownsound was captured with this guitar. There are plenty of articles on this... [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]
