Check out this video posted on Johnny Beane TV and see some awesome closeups of Edward Van Halen’s 2012 Nashville Tattoo Guitar, which currently resides where his Kramer Neptune typically does at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood, California!!

You will see that the strip of duct tape with Ed’s guitar picks had apparently been relocated at one time from the body to the headstock and then unfortunately it must have partially peeled the logo off when it was removed again.  Nonetheless, the guitar is still another absolutely stunning Edward Van Halen masterpiece.

Thank you to Johnny Beane for posting and continuing to do what you do for us all to enjoy!!  =\//-/=
