Eddie Van Halen Creates Super Guitar

Maybe it's the punk rawk in me, but I like to see a guitar get a good smashing every now and again. There's just something iconic about that kind of destruction--like the London Burning cover, or Hendrix's burning axe, or Cobain's onstage freakouts. Eddie Van Halen seems to disagree, however. The fingertappin' phenom recently designed a guitar with the help of a medical tool company that, apparently, is indestructable. It's called the Wolfgang, after his son, and it retails for $3,000. And you can be assured of its quality, because Eddie himself tried to break one on Van Halen's last tour to no avail. I really hope that footage ends up on Youtube sometime soon--something tells me that a guitar getting the best of Van Halen would be worth seeing. [Contactmusic]

I tottaly agree with you, Matthew.
Watching muscians destroy their instruments, no matter how many times its happened, no matter how much of a cliche it is; total rawk!

Booo to you, Mr. Van Halen.
And booo to Wolfgang.

Worse yet - Artist forgets that guitar is unbreakable, tries to football spike it into the stage and gets hit in the face by the rebound.

If Eddie really wants to kill his guitar he should simply talk to it, that could kill anyhting.

Medical Tool Company? Could you please elaborate? Last time I checked (about 5 minutes ago), FMIC stood for Fender Musical Instrument Company. You know... Fender. They make guitars and now are the parent company to EVH products. Duh...


parts for the guitar were made by a company that also makes medical tools. i am aware that fender makes guitars. thnx 4 teh attitude tho mang

I smashed a guitar once. It felt good, but then I was sad since I no longer had a guitar.
