A Charvel EVH Art Series electric guitar, which was played on stage and signed by late guitar legend Eddie Van Halen, has gone up for auction at Iconic Auctions.

The axe itself made an appearance during a Van Halen concert at Tacoma Dome, WA, on May 5 2012 as part of the A Different Kind Of Truth tour, and was promptly signed by EVH after the completion of the show – two scrawls penned in silver read, “Tacoma WA 5-5-2012” and “Eddie Van Halen, VH 2012”.
