1992 Ernie Ball Music Man EVH | Edward Van Halen Signature - Translucent PURPLE !!

Translucent Purple EBMM's are always a gem in any EVH guitar/art collection, no matter how vivid or naturally faded the original color may be.  These guitars are beautifully built with the utmost quality and feature fantastic quilt maple tops, but also have a notorious "flaw" since so many have drastically faded over the years.

This guitar is typically a dark violet color in normal lighting, but also has the ability to brighten immensely like a 1971 Plum Crazy Purple Hemi Cuda!  I included photos with different lighting and backgrounds to showcase some of its color variance.  One of which is located in a special place my house where my Sunburst EVH normally hangs because when the morning sun rises it perfectly illuminates the guitar's brilliance for about 30 minutes to start the day.
