The EVH Striped Series 5150 evokes the vibe and performance of Eddie Van Halen's famous red, white, and black striped solidbody electric guitar. This axe's growling tone starts with a basswood body. A custom-designed bridge humbucker delivers full lows, crisp highs, and hot-rodded mids that exhibit truckloads of crunch and singing sustain. Experience extreme playability by way of a quartersawn modified C-shaped maple neck with hand-rubbed back finish. And perform extreme dive-bombs with an EVH Floyd Rose tremolo. The EVH Striped Series 5150 solidbody electric guitar is a fitting tribute, right down to its "hockey stick" headstock.
Quality-built for high-speed performance
From its basswood body and eye-catching striped finish to its quartersawn maple neck, the EVH Striped Series just screams quality. This gorgeous guitar is made for serious playing, with a compound-radius fingerboard (12"-16") for chording to soloing comfort, an EVH Floyd Rose locking tremolo system (complete with D-Tuna), and a hard-mounted EVH Wolfgang Alnico II humbucker. And an EVH low-friction volume pot creates swells without clicks or pops. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love how this axe's components come together. It plays like a dream.
