Gibson guitars. Oh yes.
Eddie Van Halen acquired a mint condition 1958 Gibson Flying V from famed vintage guitar collector Dan Martin. Eddie went on to buy many guitars from Martin, who passed way in 2008. Dan Martin bougt the guitar in a dubious way from a unsuspecting guitarist who wasn't aware of its worth, and turned around and sold it to EVH. Eddie used the guitar on “Hot For Teacher,” “Drop Dead Legs,” and “Girl Gone Bad,” and “Top of the World.”
