SO AWESOME! Eddie Van Halen is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Van Halen's debut album w/ 3 Tribute Signature Guitars! He said they are "As close to my original in sound and feel as humanly possible"!
Eddie Van Halen is marking the 40th anniversary of Van Halen's self-titled debut LP with a trio of tribute guitars – the Super '78, '78 Eruption Relic and '78 Eruption – modeled after the signature black-and-white-striped instrument he used to record that iconic album.
"Of all the guitars I've ever built, the white and black guitar will always be my favorite because it did all the things I needed a guitar to do, which prior to that guitar did not exist," Van Halen said in a statement.
"So much changed because of it. I recorded the first album with it and did the first world tour with it. The '78 Eruption tribute is as close to my original in sound and feel as humanly possible. I'm incredibly proud of it."
