Easy Music offers Van Halen Fender fix -- for $25,000
Eddie Van Halen's Frankenstein replica guitar sells for $25,000 -- out of the range of the average strummer, but if you'd just like to gaze upon it, the Fender guitar can be visited at Easy Music Center.
It's black, white and red all over, with all the details replicated, even scratches, a cigarette burn and a 1971 quarter stuck under the tremolo bridge.
The guitar has been issued in a limited edition, with 300 produced worldwide and just 150 distributed in the domestic market.
The price includes an aged Anvil flight case with combination lock, Van Halen picks and a photo and certificate, both signed by the musician.
Easy Music is at 1314 S. King St.
