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® GEAR 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 back finish and “hockey stick” headstock. The fast-playing compound-radius (12”-16”) maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets, black dot inlays and a convenient heel-mounted truss rod adjustment wheel.
The 5150 is also fitted with a custom designed EVH® Wolfgang® alnico 2 Humbucker 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, each locking nut tailpiece features fine tuners 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.
