Frankenstein or Frankenstrat?

Every Guitar Has A Story. It seems like Eddie Van Halen’s guitar might have a few stories.

His son just cleared up an unanswered question.

Is Eddie’s guitar named Frankenstein or Frankenstrat?

Wolfgang says, “Officially, on the case, it says Frankenstein.” Eddie built it out of odd-lot parts and spray painted it. He wanted the best of both Gibson and Fender.

The iconic guitar has been modified many times. The last modification was the bridge that is now a Floyd Rose.

Wolfgang says the last time the strings were changed was 2015.
