Eddie Van Halen: new Stealth, Wolfgang guitars unveiled at NAMM

The Eddie Van Halen EVH Stealth and Wolfgang guitars, along with the 5150 III 50W amp, were unveiled this week at the 2011 NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show in Anaheim.

The 2011 NAMM show is the largest music trade show in America, with more than 80,000 attendees and more than 1,500 exhibitors traveling from more than 100 countries. The convention, which runs through Sunday, features the music industry's newest musical instruments and state-of-the-art technologies.

Take a walk through the EVH booth with Chris Cannella — considered to be Eddie Van Halen's "right hand man" when it comes to EVH gear.
