Eddie Van Halen’s famous guitar is the newest instrument to be placed in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History has recently acquired the Van Halen “Frank 2″ guitar, played and made famous by Eddie Van Halen, through a partnership donation with Fender Musical Instruments.

The guitar was made in 2006 as part of a joint venture between the artist and Fender to produce a limited edition number of guitars for the EVH brand. Known as the “Frankenstein Replica,” or “Frank 2,” it will be part of the museum’s Division of Culture and the Arts, which preserves a large and diverse collection of instruments.
