Eddie Van Halen’s Parker Fly Deluxe

Eddie used this guitar to play Spanish Fly live in 1993, on at least one occasion (see photo below). If you happen to know the exact day of the concert, please post it in the comments.

Not much is known about this guitar, apart from what can be deducted from the footage. The guitar was finished in black, it had two full-sized humbuckers, and a non-locking tremolo.

Eddie & Sammy perform at Neil Young’s “Bridge School Benefit” concert, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, CA on 6 November 1993. This is the show and date that Eddie played the Parker.
