Eddie Van Halen Poses with Giant 'Frankenstrat' -

Eddie Van Halen stopped off at the Universal CityWalk this past weekend to check out the giant replica of his iconic Frankenstein, or Frankenstrat, guitar which is housed at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood.

Eddie's son Wolfgang, who replaced longtime bassist Michael Anthony in Van Halen, tweeted the photo of EVH posing next to the guitar.

The tweet read:


"Today was his first time actually seeing it in person! @eddievanhalen #finally #citywalk"

The Hard Rock updated the guitar display in November of 2011 as a salute to Van Halen's iconic homemade instrument.

In related news Van Halen's rescheduled Japanese shows were announced recently: the band will play the Tokyo Dome on June 21 and Osaka's City Central Gymnasium on June 24 and 26.
