    Wow

    I get people will pay more for a guitar with some sort of history, and it's a very nice example, but wow. It's gonna need a little more historic significance than that for me. I'd be curious to know if there's some rabid EVH fan out there who will pay this.

    IIRC that exact guitar was for sale here in Manchester CT at the big national chain around 15-20 years ago. It was high up on the wall and sticker priced around $15k - I remember wishing it were more affordable.
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    Wow, it's nice an all and the history is cool, but is it really worth all that?

    Really Pete, what would you have paid at that time?

    I've seen a number of examples like that where someone is asking waaayyyy too much for a 'special' guitar...
    Guess it doesn't hurt to try, but I don't recall ever seeing any of them actually sell...
    I think that one takes the cake though...

    The decimal would have needed to move over 1 position in my favor.

    Yeah, I get that it's a special guitar and was sold at auction, but it's nothing special apart from that.

    Pete - same here - I asked one of the sales guys there if they misprinted the price, and got the spiel....

    Recent auctions have indicated an EVH from that era is going around $5K in good condition. So, the seller is doing a $20K markup for the provenance.

    It says Ed bought it, they also say he sold it in the same year for a charity. The protective film is still on the plates. He usually replaced the strap buttons with eye-bolts. If Ed played it, he didn't play it very much.

    There was a 1982 Charvel that sold for $67K. There is a video of him playing it on Entertainment Tonight.

    At first, I was going to say it's really high. But after seeing that 1982 Charvel, maybe not. I added it to my watch list to see what it does.

    I would think the guitar was purchased specifically for the charity. Doesn't have nearly the street cred of the Charvel, though EVH stuff is apparently somewhat desirable.

    One problem though is that he's a notorious tinkerer, so a lot of his gear from the early years, which would be the REALLY valuable stuff, no longer exists in the form from back then, if it exists in any form at all.
