    Very cool, but also kinda ugly. Looks like the Star shape needs to go on a diet.

    Interesting that Eddie wanted to revive that shape as far back as the Peavey days.

    Scotty, I was thinking that too. Maybe it is but it still looks too good to be true. These days guitars are bootlegged even more than films!

    Jedi, it would have been nice if EVH had done that at the time! It could have had potential. The only thing I never liked from his original Star was the headstock. Remember this?

    After reading the letters, it sounds to me like Peavey was trying to pitch a Star version WG to Edward,
    but he didn't bite, and walked away with the red one. I think it reminded him of Grover's old sleazy move, or didn't want to deal with further Grover aftermath.
    VH lore has it that Grover gave Edward a bunch of star bodies, as sort of an apology for copping the Black/Yellow Charvel strat for production.

    The first time I saw VH was in April 1980, and Edward played an all white Star, with a Floyd, and a Dano neck,
    the entire show...except for ATCWR, when he used a LP, while MA played the keyboards.

    10K is just the starting bid, and I'm fairly certain it's gonna sell way higher than that.

    It's waaaaaay too much for me to even consider bidding, but.... I kinda love it?

    I think it looks cool with the Wolfgang headstock
    I'm just here.

    There's nothing special about this other than it being a Peavey prototype. You could build your own, with Peavey-accurate parts (real Wolfgang neck, pickups, bridge) and a custom-made body (I cannot imagine Locke would turn it down for the right price) for under $2k I'd bet.

    Interesting piece of history though.

    Semi-related, but they should totally make a Wolfgang version with the Star paintjob. I love mine!

    KNE Guitars built this basic concept a few years ago too, btw. Wolfgang headstock on the Star body looks nice when the Star body is apropriately proportioned.

    Derrick Cook ran a couple of those bodies when he was going through the old Peavey plant 2 stuff a few years back. Seems like he sold them for a few hundred a piece. $10k is nuts.
