Eddie Van Halen Auctioning Iconic Guitar For Charity
Eddie Van Halen's 1982 Kramer Frankenstrat is one of eight handmade, red-and-white guitars ever produced; it was used during Van Halen's 1982-1983 Diver Down Tour and recording of its most successful album, "1984."
Van Halen's signature is inscribed on the guitar's neck. Its presale estimate is $100,000 to $150,000, with part of the proceeds going to benefit guitarist Jason Becker and the Jason Becker Special Needs Trust to assist him and his family in his battle against ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). more on this story
