A yellow-with-black-stripes Charvel EVH Art Series guitar that was signed and played by Eddie Van Halen is headed to the auction block.
Put up for sale by Iconic Auctions, the custom model was based off of Eddie's legendary "Bumblebee" guitar, and was used by him during a Van Halen show at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington on May 5, 2012. Eddie inscribed the guitar with his name and “Tacoma WA 5-5-2012” and “Eddie Van Halen, VH 2012" after the performance.
The guitar features a single humbucker pickup, a master volume control with the label "Tone," and a strip of duct tape with a handful of picks from Van Halen's A Different Kind Of Truth tour.
Bidding for the guitar – which currently sits at $13,310 – ends this Saturday, May 15. It comes with an Eddie Van Halen-signed certificate of authenticity, and video footage from concert, which you can check out below.
This particular guitar is merely the latest of a series of Eddie Van Halen-played Charvels that have gone under the hammer in the months since his death last October, with some ultimately selling for over $100,000.
