Here’s a 2012 Charvel EVH Art Series instrument. This was a run of guitars personally striped by Eddie and then played at a specific show on tour with Van Halen! This guitar was played at the Ottawa tour date on March 21st, 2012. This guitar is built of a basswood body, bolt-on quartersawn Eastern hard rock maple neck with an oil finish, 22 jumbo frets, and a 25.5″ scale length. It comes with a custom wound single EVH humbucker, original Floyd Rose tremolo and the D-Tuna, which lets you drop your low E string a whole step at a moments notice. The necks on these instruments really stand out, the oil finish is incredibly smooth and tonally gives a very snappy and bright sound due to the hard rock maple. The original case, signed COA, trem arm, and photo of Ed with the guitar are included. How cool is it for an appreciator of Van Halen to own a guitar that he actually striped and played live? The Coolest!

Includes: Original Hardshell Case, Trem Arm, Certificate of Authenticity Signed by EVH and Photo of EVH with Guitar
