    Are you talking about his first really good electric guitar the 1969 Les Paul goldtop that has the clear bobbin P-90 in the neck and the humbucker installed in the bridge that he used from 1969-1975? Or are you talking about the ‘Burst from the ‘Women and Children First’ session photos as MF5150 is saying?

    There is a little confusion from Greg Renoff’s post about the 1969 Les Paul because for some reason he posted a picture of him playing the ‘Burst (an “Un-Burst”) with the neck pickup missing as if it was the same guitar:

    You’re be able to tell the guitars apart by the selector switch poker chip on The Burst.

    The Goldtop will not have a tanline (unfaded aniline dye) underneath.

    Did anyone else catch this video of Ed noodling around with the riff for Amsterdam back in 1985?



    Pretty cool to see him working the song into a form we recognize.

    Good to know. I was going off of what was listed on the YT video description. I’d edit my original post to reflect your info, but that doesn’t seem to be an option.

    Edit: And… I just realized that VHND had it earlier in the month. Sigh. Here, I thought I had breaking news.

    No biggie…the second video that was recorded at the same time and was released just after this video has Eddie specifically saying that it was April of 1987. Eddie also had the rat-tail pony tail between the last date of the 5150 tour on November 3, 1986 through the Saturday Night Live appearance which was February of 1987 and at least through the April 1987 date given in the second “head shaving” home video.

    Didn't know where on the internet i could get this answered so figured i would ask here...

    Who was the first guitar player (especially rock) who took an extended solo during concerts?

    When did Ed start to do it?

    Great article on the “Origins of the Frankenstein” in the new November Guitar World with Hammett and Hetfield on the cover. It’s an excerpt from the Tolinski-Gill “Eruption” book. Has pics of the Frankenstein when it was natural and then just black before EVH taped it up and painted it white. Cool read.

    The neck on the Frankie is a little different. The Frankie neck is superior, it feels like an old comfortable familiar neck.

    Here is the specs from EVHGear.com:

    Striped series: Neck Thickness
    .790" at 3rd Fret & .810" at 12th Fret

    Frankie: Neck Thickness
    .790" at 3rd fret & .825" at 12th fret

    This is the only difference I can find in the specs. But to me, the necks seem different when playing.
