EVH Striped Series 5150 Maple Fingerboard Red with Black and White Stripes
When Eddie Van Halen introduced his famous red, white and black striped 5150™ guitar in 1984, he never would have fathomed the thousands of copies it would inspire. But then again, Eddie has made a career of being copied in every which way imaginable. EVH proudly introduces a new Striped Series 5150 model based on his original instrument, featuring his distinctively striped 5150 motif and single humbucker setup.
The Striped Series 5150 has a basswood body identical to the original, with a bolt-on quartersawn maple neck featuring a comfortable modified “C” profile, hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back and unique “hockey stick” headstock. The fast-playing 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets, black dot inlays and a convenient heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.
The 5150 is also fitted with a custom-designed EVH® Wolfgang® alnico 2 humbucking bridge pickup, delivering the perfect amount of power and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. A custom designed EVH-branded low-friction volume knob provides for unmatched performance and even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells.
Decked out with a rock solid “dive bomb” certified EVH-branded Floyd Rose® bridge, the locking tailpiece features fine tuners for each string and a patented EVH D-Tuna® for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant.
With its quintessential red 5150 hologram numbers and star decals, the Striped Series 5150 is a high-powered, high-performance machine that’s as kickass to look at as it is to play.
