Over the past two years, there have been a number of Eddie Van Halen-signed electric guitars sold at auction, and now Heritage Auctions has thrown four more into the mix: three Van Halen-signed and stage-played Charvel EVH Art Series guitars, and a Masterbuilt Bumblebee replica.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen the Charvel Art Series represented at auction, after Julien’s Auctions sold five signed pieces in May last year and Iconic Auctions sold a stage-played version that same month.
