EVH-Guitars.com is now offering something the fans have clamored for since the moment Edward changed everything about the way the guitar is played. No more need for masking tape and Schwinn bicycle paint in the garage, the master himself will paint one for you. It is not clear how this new relationship with Charvel/Fender affects his contract to endorse the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special but rumors suggest that this may be a transition to a new endorsement arrangement if the Peavey contract is due to expire this fall.
THE EVH ART SERIES GUITARS
The Ultimate One-Of-A-Kind Collectable Art Guitar
Edward Van Halen is proud to introduce a very limited edition line of the EVH Art Series Guitars, each one of which will have unique artwork personally created by Eddie.
Each of these EVH Art Series Guitars will be hand striped and autographed by Eddie, and verified by a Certificate of Authenticity. And to showcase and protect these one-of-a-kind guitars, each one comes with a specially designed and distinctive guitar case.
These EVH Art Series Guitars will be based on his
famous three original artworks:
1. White with black stripes
2. Black with yellow stripes
3. Red with black and white stripes
And no more than 30 guitars in each model will
be made available in 2004.
Many of these EVH Art Series Guitars will be
offered through the EVH-guitars Online Auction
Store on eBay. Availability depends upon Eddie's
schedule, so check the EVH-guitars Online Auction
Store often to make sure you don't miss out on
owning a one-of-a-kind Eddie creation.
The highest winning bidder during 2004 will not only own a one of a kind guitar, but will also be the proud owner of Eddieís personal customized Harley.
