Another guitar used onstage by Eddie Van Halen is up for sale in a lot including hundreds more rock and roll artifacts.

An autographed black and yellow Charvel EVH Art Series guitar that was played by Eddie during a Van Halen concert in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2012 is up for sale as part of RR Auction's 'Marvels of Modern Music' series auction.

The guitar comes with photos of Eddie playing it onstage and four gray 'Van Halen, 2012' guitar picks. It is signed, dated and it includes a certificate of authenticity from Eddie himself.

The Charvel model is based on Eddie's iconic FrankenStrat guitar — his attempt to combine the humbucking capabilities of a Gibson with the playability and tremolo bar function of a Fender.

Bidding began on June 19 and concludes later this evening, June 24. Go here to take a closer look.

As of this writing, the current bid was $30,747.

In December, three guitars formerly owned by Eddie sold at auction for $422,000, $231,250 and $140,800, respectively.

Earlier this month, Alex Van Halen sold his 'Invasion' tour drum kit from 1981 at auction for $230,000, pledging all the proceeds to charity via the Frangioni Foundation and Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation.
