Eddie Van Halen’s Unknown Acoustic Guitar (Josephina, 1998)
Eddie used this acoustic guitar during a live performance of the song Josephina, from Van Halen’s 1998 album, Van Halen III.
Unfortunately, at this time, the exact model of the guitar is unknown. At that time Eddie played Peave guitars, so it could be that this was an acoustic guitar that Peavey built for him. But the fact that the guitar doesn’t match any of the Peavey designs, and the fact that Eddie covered the headstock logo with a tape, suggests that this was likely something else.
The headstock shape suggests that it could be a Taylor, but once again, it’s hard to match it exactly to any of the models that the company produced in the 90s.
