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”.

Cool video its interesting that the tremolo set is not his normal way on 99% of them I have seen there is the old style floyd rose with the big brass block and only two springs in the cavity instead of the 3 shown in the video

Very cool… that bridge pickup looks a little too new to my eye to be 30 years old.. sure is in great shape.

“Included with the guitar were some photos taken backstage at Madison Square Garden in ’83 including one showing Rudy Leiren (Eddie’s guitar tech, on the left), Eddie, and Vitas posing for the camera with Eddie’s guitars. Vitas is proudly holding the guitar that Eddie gave him.”

Minor detail, they didn’t play MSG or anywhere in the states in 83..

1984 ?


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

I’m thinking 82.. simple mistake for a writer who isn’t a superfan..

Looks like Ed from 1982. The headstock looks more 1984.

yeah that guitar went on tour with Ed during the Diver down tour for sure. To my knowledge he never played the guitar live on stage though. He played the Franky and the Kramer ad franky during the south american leg of the tour.

it is an awesome peice of history though. I’d love to own it.
