Engineered for speed, comfort and full-throttle attitude, the reimagined 5150™ Series Deluxe is an iconic blast from the past that blends both throwback and modernized features.
Like its predecessor, the Limited Edition 5150 Deluxe Ash features a modified Strat-style body with a deeper upper body curve. The ash body is paired with a graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck that has a comfortable modified “C” profile, hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and “hockey stick” headstock with EVH logo decal. Built for smooth and speedy playability, the 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and cream dot inlays.
While the famed striped original had a single humbucking bridge pickup only, the all-new 5150 Deluxe is outfitted with a dual humbucking configuration controlled by a three-way toggle on the upper bout. The custom designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking bridge pickup delivers the perfect amount of punch and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. The EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking neck pickup serves up no-nonsense, balls to the wall overdrive and endless sustain without skimping on articulate cleans when the volume is rolled down. A custom designed low friction volume knob creates even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, while the high friction tone knob will stay in place even if accidentally bumped. An added new feature comes in the way of a lower bout kill switch, allowing you to mute your guitar for those stutter, rhythmic effects — think “You Really Got Me.”
Decked out with a “dive-bomb” certified EVH-branded top-mount 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.
A modern spin on a fan favorite, the Limited Edition 5150 Deluxe Ash is elegance personified with a Natural stain finish and all-chrome hardware, including the EVH-branded Gotoh tuning machines.
