Next month California auction house Profiles In History will include a rare Eddie Van Halen guitar.  The battle ax is Eddie's 1982 Kramer Frankenstrat.  There were only eight of the handmade guitars built.  The guitar is not unique only because of the limited number in existent but due to its use on the "1984" album and during the Van Halen tour 1982-1984.

Cool rare 1982 footage of Van Halen:

The guitar is estimated to bring at least $150,000.  A portion of the proceeds benefit guitarist Jason Becker's battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease.  There will be other cool rock and roll memorabilia in the auction.  You can check them out here: Profiles In History
