    Eddie Van Halen Commemorative 5150 "Frankenstein" Guitar. Eddie Van Halen literally re-invented the guitar when he pieced together his iconic "Frankenstein" electric from about $200 worth of spare parts at the Kramer factory in Neptune, NJ. In doing so, he inspired millions of guitar players to customize their axes and spurred a trend for custom guitars and modified amps. This Kramer reproduction commemorates the impact of Eddie's creation, featuring a "5150" logo over a white-and-black-striped on red paint job. In Excellent condition, accompanied by a nylon hardshell case.
