Joe Bonamassa has posted an Instagram video of himself shredding on an EVH Frankenstein model.

The minute-long clip captures the bluesman turning the mean-looking axe into a riff machine with his lightning-fast chops. Although Bonamassa’s best known for his stunning array of Les Pauls, Strats and Flying Vs, he hasn’t shied away from Van Halen-style gear. Back in 2014, the guitarist posted a Facebook video of him ripping away on a 1978 black-and-yellow Charvel model.

The Grammy-nominated artist, who is currently touring in support of Redemption, also recently confirmed to The Gazette that he has begun writing for his next project.
