EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.

The goldtop is nice, but the price tag on those is absolutely ridiculous..

I agree, have you ever played one? I haven’t but it’s hard to believe that it would compare to either of my Suhrs (about $3K each) or my Regius 7-string (about $4,500). Those guitars are practically handmade – the Regius especially.
I’d like to play one but I guess I just haven’t had the opportunity.

Fans rub elbows with rock stars at convention

Bruce Newberg waited an hour and a half to meet Michael Anthony.

He’s been to a Van Halen concert every year since 1983.

He has a Van Halen tattoo on his left arm. He was wearing a Van Halen necklace and a Van Halen T-shirt.

But he had never met Anthony, the former bassist for the rock band, until Saturday at the National Association of Music Merchants show, or NAMM.

“He’s my inspiration for bass and guitar,” said Newberg, an Orange resident. “I’ve been a Van Halen fan since 1978.”

Newberg was one of roughly 100,000 people expected at this weekend’s NAMM Show, held at the Anaheim Convention Center. The show, only open to industry folks, rakes in $91.5 million for the local economy, according to Register reports.

It’s a place to find out the latest technology and innovation in the music industry.

It’s also a place to see some rock stars.

Fred Ryan and Brian Hodshire weathered a long drive from Phoenix — including a middle-of-the-night flat tire, having to drive 47 miles at 17 miles per hour at one point.

“We fought really hard to get here,” Hodshire said.

The two, who are both in bands, said they enjoy learning about new gadgets, But it’s also “great to meet your rock n’ roll legends,” Hodshire said. Like Anthony.

I haven’t had the opportunity.. I never see them down here. I have the MMEB EVH model and 2 Peavey Wolfs and they’re great, but were each about $1,300. I consider that a fair price-point. The EVH US Wolfs sell for about 3k which, to me, is at the very hi-end for that guitar, and these new ‘custom’ LP-style ones go for 5k-8k which I find to be completely insane. With that said, I do plan on buying a Stealth this year. I’m hoping it will be my Christmas gift to myself… we’ll see.
