    Eddie Van Halen ‘Frankenstrat’ Guitars Hit the Auction Block

    Rocker gifted instrument to one of his guitar heroes, Mountain’s Leslie West, in the late-Eighties

    DANIEL KREPS
    APRIL 10, 2021

    One of Eddie Van Halen’s iconic “Frankenstrat” guitar — which the rocker gifted to late Mountain guitarist Leslie West — is set to hit the auction block Sunday.

    The “Kramer Striker/Ripley Rosewood Fingerboard Frankenstrat Solid Body Electric Guitar” — one of an arsenal of custom-made guitars that Eddie Van Halen designed and “spray-painted and striped by hand, presumably by hand,” Heritage Auctions said — was made for the guitarist in 1984, and was believed to be Van Halen’s backup guitar on both the tours in support of 1984 and 5150.

    In the late-Eighties, Van Halen gave the instrument to one of his guitar heroes, Mountain’s Leslie West, who in turn gifted in 1990 to his bodyguard, who on Sunday will sell the guitar to the highest bidder.

    The guitar — which has a Rosewood neck, as opposed to Van Halen’s usual maple necks —comes with a notarized letter of authenticity as well as “various nicks and metal coating wear are known to be from Eddie Van Halen,” Heritage Auctions adds.

    Other notable instruments at Heritage Auctions’ guitar-filled sale Sunday include another of Van Halen’s Frankenstrats (this one from 2017), the ESP 400 that Kirk Hammett played in Metallica’s “One” video, one of Prince’s white “Cloud” guitars and Michael Jackson’s Flying V guitar from his “Scream” video.

    In December 2020, just two months after Eddie Van Halen’s death, three of the guitarist’s Frankenstrats sold at auction for $422,000 combined.

    A random thought about those reaction vids, specifically the ones where they watch Ed's LWAN solo, and another reason why I don't buy into them as much as others:

    I'm assuming that they've never seen someone play guitar with the style and all the tricks that Ed did. So when they don't react to him doing things like the palm slide, or making weird noises from the back of the guitar, or any one of the different tapping techniques (especially the Mean Street intro), I have to wonder how genuine their reactions really are. No, they're more impressed that his guitar holds his cigarette for him.

    Those were things that made me react the first time I saw LWAN--then again, I was kind of in awe the entire time.

    This 1000%. "Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bar and Grill" came up on my Spotify over the weekend and I was thinking the same thing. Great tune!

    I got out of the boonies today. I went to a city with a large mall and a Barnes & Noble. I went to see if they had Van Halen Rising, at first I didn't see it, but I kept looking and I found it! Today was my lucky day. I can't wait to get started. Not much makes me happier than getting new Van Halen stuff.

    They also have another book "Running with the Devil" I'll probably get that next time.

    That was fucking fantastic.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
