Over the weekend, Eddie Van Halen made an appearance at a music-equipment trade-show in Anaheim, during which he showed off the new $25,000 Fender “Frankenstein” guitar. The good news: When Eddie actually plays, he can tap that axe like it’s 1984. The bad news: When he speaks, he sounds like Jeff Spicoli giving a report on humbuckers. His entire appearance is broken down into a series of YouTube clips, the best of which are here and here; as Eddie would say, they play like nutbutter, and it’s just the tip of the ice cube.
