Black and White - aka: VH1
EVH Mini Guitars * Original "Franky" (or Frankie) Guitar.
* This is the guitar that started it all. Appeared on the cover of the first Van Halen album.
* Iconic white with black stripes design which went on to become the famous main Frankenstein guitar after red paint was added.
* Striped with Schwinn bicycle paint (the thin lines are actually car striping tape and not paint). Painted black originally, then taped off and painted white.
* VH1 was originally a factory second Boogie Bodies ash body and birdseye maple neck with plain maple fingerboard, rosewood top dots and brass side dots.
* Handcut pickguard. Probably the first Strat to be modified to have a single humbucker. Had a single white (now famous) "Tone" knob for volume.
