I seriously doubt Ed had anything to do with this guitar. Look at it. i just cant see Ed building something like this. Also, even though its not easy to see, check out the "so called" signed document that comes with it... It was nice of Ed to draw the old VH logo on the top of the letter...

Sad thing is, some poor guy or gal will buy this thinking its the real deal...

This is why ELVH has those lawyers working for him...

It doesn't look like Ed's signature. But, who knows. The VH logo on the head is cheese. I just don't see Ed taking the time to add the logo for some rich guy's kid. I've never seen that on any of his own. Also, too many pickups.

Seeing how he never got document authenticity ( ie. PDA ) which would most likely quadruple the value of the guitar, it is most likely hogwash.

Has anyone inquired what they are asking? You never know, but I don't think it is real.

Looks bogus to me as well. But, who knows.....with a drunken Ed, the sky is the limit. :mrgreen: :lol:

I agree with you, dr.smoke~~most definitely not Ed's sig, nor could I picture him bothering to add the cheesy, hand drawn logo on the paperwork or the headstock. Interesting what people will try to pass off as legit. :wink:

It looks like something some amateur fan made that was sitting in a garage or closet somewhere. If Ed really made it in 1986, it would most likely be one of the kramer backups.

And it's missing a wing as well.
