I bet it was Jim Irsay...

"THE ICONIC “FRANKENSTRAT” guitar that Eddie Van Halen played both onstage and in the classic video for Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” sold at auction this week for a whopping $3.9 million.

The Sotheby’s auction also included other ephemera from the famed 1984 video — including the straitjacket and white gloves worn by EVH in the visual — but the main draw was the custom-made Strat with its Van Halen’s trademark De Stilj-inspired paint job. The guitar blew past the pre-auction estimate of between $2 and 3 million."
 
I’d be cool with Irsay buying it, he at least ensures those guitars still get played and seen!
 
Frankie is one guitar. F#% useless journalist.

He gave it away over 35years ago because he didn’t like it.
