    Soon, they will stuff EVH and reunite him with his guitar...

    It would be cooler if it was the original or one from the early days.

    I went to the Smithsonian years ago when they had a guitar exhibit. It was pretty cool.

    He should give them his liver, that's the real warhorse.

    C'mon... c'mon! What's this? It's not even on view, that's how exciting it is for the Smithsonian.
    Frank 2? Supposedly legit because it was used for a reunion tour, with the original singer?
    If it doesn't have a floating bridge, it's not what he was endorsing.
    Not the original, not on view, not all there. Who cares, except publicity oriented people?

    Jimi's Woodstock guitar last sold for $340,000. That's selling. For American money. Not donating for taxes.

    The black and yellow one was buried with Dime. That one was way cooler. :weebz:

    No, it was a stand-by model (or something like that), not THE model. The black-and-white from the first album ended up as the red mongrel, so there IS no b/w one anymore.

    This is correct.

    According to Vinnie, Rita, and EVH themselves it is the REAL black and yellow.

    Yeah, the black and yellow one is not the same guitar as the black and white one (which eventually became the red, black and white Franky 1).

    I've always heard that the VH2 black and yellow one was buried with Dime. The real one. Not a $25,000 copy like the Smithsonian has. :weebz:
