    Eddie Van Halen Rare Custom Made and Stage Played Charvel Guitar Serial #229 (2007). Offered here is an incredible custom-built guitar made for the Van Halen 2007-2008 tour. It was this tour that reunited the band with original vocalist, David Lee Roth, and the band's first with Wolfgang Van Halen on bass and backing vocals. As an evolution of the famed Frankenstrat, this unique version was designed by Eddie himself and manufactured via Charvel's EVH Series.

    Per the signed COA from Eddie, this guitar was crafted by Eddie and played during Van Halen's performance in Seattle on December 3rd, 2007 at KeyArena. The same version of the guitar on other dates of the tour was manufactured solely by Charvel, and not touched by Eddie during their construction and assemblage. These guitars were only made for this tour. It is the only truly unique variation of the previously only-slightly modified versions of the guitar designed over the years. It was never replicated or sold by Charvel vendors, unlike previous versions.

    After the Seattle show, Eddie signed and inscribed the venue and date with a thick silver felt tip on the body. A protective clear strip was added on top to protect the signature and inscription.

    With this immensely successful tour with Roth (noted for being the most profitable tour they ever did), 2007 was also the year the seminal Hard Rock giants were inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    In Near Mint Minus condition with light handling wear on the body (front and back).

    Included with the guitar is a beautiful EVH custom case made by G&G, the Eddie Van Halen-sign certificate of authenticity and a great color photo of Eddie playing the guitar on stage. This piece of Rock N' Roll history was purchased by the consigner directly from Eddie. COAs from Heritage Auctions and Eddie Van Halen.
