Eddie Van Halen’s Music Man EVH Doubleneck

Eddie used this guitar when performing “Spanked” live in 1991/92, or during the time he used Music Man guitars.


The top portion of the guitar served as a 6-string bass, while the bottom was a regular 6-string guitar. The bass side had what appeared to be Danelectro-style “lipstick” pickups, while the bottom had the regular “Zebra” humbuckers from the 5150 model.

This is one of a kind. It’s a hollow-body 6-string bass, and one of these (points towards the regular 5150 guitar) hooked onto it.
