Post EVH's "Frankenstein" = American History
The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History recently acquired the VAN HALEN "Frank 2" guitar played and made famous by Eddie Van Halen through a partnership donation with Fender Musical Instruments.

The guitar was made in 2006 as part of a joint venture between the artist and Fender to produce a limited edition number of guitars for the EVH brand. Known as the "Frankenstein Replica," or "Frank 2," it will be part of the museum's Division of Culture and the Arts, which preserves a large and diverse collection of instruments.

"The museum collects objects that are multidimensional, and this guitar reflects innovation, talent and influence," said Brent D. Glass, director of the museum. "The guitar moves the museum's instrument collections into more contemporary history."

Just wanna pick it up and play Eruption! :twisted:
It's soo cool it belongs in a museum...one of my favourite guitars of all time!
I think the Frankenstein is one of the most important Axes in guitar history, it made that step from a Standard Start to a Super Start we know today.
