EVH (Eddie Van Halen) Signature Model Music Man Guitar 1993

The Guitar’s History:

I am the original owner of this beautiful red, flamed maple guitar, which I purchased in Edmonton in 1993 while visiting the city on a jazz band trip; I still have the original receipt. The EVH was my main guitar for about 6-7 years––I also owned a Music Man Silhouette. In my early twenties my musical style changed and an Albert Lee Music Man replaced the EVH as my main instrument. The EVH was packed away and the Albert Lee was seconded by a Fender Strat.

For approximately 20 years the EVH has been stored in its case at my parent’s house in a room that is maintained at a constant temperature through Winter and Summer. Every few years I pull the guitar out, play it, show it to my kids, and then put it away. I recently brought it home and plugged it in to my amp––it sounded great. The bridge pickup is big and full of harmonics, and the neck pickup gives a rich warm sound. The guitar is effortless to play––nobody makes a neck like Music Man.

The Guitar

Everything is original and works perfectly. No work has been done on the guitar, except that I oiled the high E machine head as it stiffened over time. The guitar is in excellent condition; it looks beautiful but it does have some marks on it as it is a played instrument:

  • The back is scratched from my belt buckle (see picture).
  • There are three small dings on the front: 1. A very small surface ding behind the bridge. 2. A small surface ding near the volume knob. 3. A small surface ding a little bit farther down from the aforementioned ding (see pictures).
  • By the plug-in jack there is a ding.
  • On the top black edge, where the guitar player's arm drapes over the guitar, there is a ding. (This ding and the one by the plug-in I was unable to capture on camera as the black is so shiny that the dings do not show up).

Beyond wiping off the dust with the Ernie Ball cloth (the original cloth that came with the guitar) I have not done any other cleaning, including the neck.

The Case

The guitar case, which is the original, was regularly used. It is scratched and has wear marks. It is missing one of the metal ‘feet’ on the bottom. The leather tab that opens the little compartment is no longer attached but I still have the tab and it can be easily reattached. I also have the original checklist paper from Music Man (see picture).

This is a beautiful guitar in aesthetics, tone, and functionality! If you have any questions please let me know.

I will pay up to $250.00 for shipping. The buyer will cover any shipping costs beyond this, including customs fees etc. The costs listed under the shipping heading are just a guess of shipping costs. The actual shipping costs will be calculated exactly upon sale and discussed with the buyer.
