    well gang the fun has ended, EVH is going after anyone who makes replicas and also anyone who uses the striped Frankenstein artwork, Ed Roman GMW and anyone else doing theses will be asked to stop, I knew it had been coming for a long time, they are fun to make and I'll continue making them for me.
    Now this is the really silly part, anyone using a VH logo or the striped pattern will be asked to stop, so that little peghead next to the vhforums.com logo will eventually asked to be removed, along with the picture of the 5150 amp
    and all my guitars (well most all my guitars) to the left of it, that is silly folks just plain silly Ed has lost it, I can see shutting commercial stuff down but going after fans websites is a direct kick in the balls, anyone wanting proof he diesn't care about the fans this is one more bit of evidence.

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    What a huge slap in the face to all the fans out here on the net that have done nothing but keep that Van Halen name alive for the last two years. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] Sorry to hear that Rol.

    rols,

    That totally sucks!!!

    Like Tim and others have said, it's a total kick in the teeth to ALL of us who've kept the name and spirit of VH alive.

    This makes me wonder though, if Ed has completely lost it and is becoming some paranoid, schizophrenic guitar wizard or if he's just wanting to protect himself and his investments for something "coming"...

    Something good OR bad.

    Anyway, sorry about that rols.

    Wonder if we should keep this kinda thing here in the "Guitar Forum" or if we ought to move it out to "Main" for everyone to see. It might cause a lot of negative vibes, though.

    Hey Rol, I'm sorry to hear about this. You are truly providing a great product for an even better price. Maybe this is your oppurtunity to get started on your own line of guitars?

    Rol, I totally appreciate you bringing this to our attention. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I'm sending this to the Main so everyone can see what a nutcase Eddie has turned into.

    he's a nutcase because he's protecting his trademark, or business interests?

    It sounds like Eddie has fallen under the influence of some very bad advice. Why bite the hand that feeds you unless... you're not planning on eating anymore and feel bitter?

    Could this conceivably effect a tribute band where they mimic the look and sound of Van Halen?
