It has been a pretty busy couple days in the music news world as the NAMM Convention is now in full swing with plenty of awesome announcement and gear unveils by the hour – so much so that you might even miss a legend or two walking right by!

Eddie Van Halen for one made his way to the Anaheim Convention Center on Wednesday to promote the EVH Stripe Series guitar which features a basswood Stratocaster-style body decked out in Van Halen's famed striped graphics, in red with black stripes, black with yellow stripes and white with black stripes.

Eddie's health issue forced the cancellation of a full series of North American concerts last summer, as well as the need to reschedule some Japanese dates originally set for last fall, so it’s assuring to see the guy in good spirits.
