Hi first of all; it's Adrian Vandenberg :wink:
A friend of mine has one. I don't think that they still make it.
I did a google search and found this:
Years Made: 1988-1992

Hey thanks, afaruler159, for coming up with this thread. If it wouldn't have been of you I would never have known that Adrian/Adje will be having an art exhibition in my country :D By looking for information about this guitar, I came across Adrian's site and there I found this:

2007:

Exhibition Antwerp, Belgium.

"30 years stuck between Rock and an Artplace".

An overview exibition of works from Vandenberg from the period 1977 until 2007 will be held at the municipal exibitionhall "Luchtbal" from the 24th of november until the 21st of december.
The exhibitionhall will be open all day, admission is free.
Cultuurcentrum Luchtbal - Columbiastraat 110, 2030 Antwerpen.

since guitar already looks kinda strange why not spice it up with strange placement for pick ups! :mrgreen:

Joke on a side,its probably because of the sound

Well... prolly cuz Adrian wanted 'em that way? I think Van Halen started the whole diagonal pick up placement thing -- lining poles to strings... dunno.

well the bridge single coil in strats is sideways

and when people did the entire super strat thing (EVH's included), they just left it sideways instead of drilling new mounting holes

Heyas Patricia!

No... that's not my guitar. Saw the thread and realized I'd never seen one... googled it and found that very nice representation.

I tell you... I sure wouldn't mind having an axe like that in my collection though! Looks pretty sweet.
