Features: What it does for you:

Quartersawn neck Strong straight grain; sweet tone
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones
If Eddie Van Halen could have ordered his dream guitar in the late '70s, what would it have looked like? EVH has answered this with the Eddie Van Halen Striped Series of guitars -- delivering an unblemished modern take on the guitar hero's most iconic axes.

Striped and Set Up Like Eddie's

Countless aspiring shredders took to their axes with paint cans after Van Halen erupted on the scene. While it might have been a fun DIY project, it's now much easier for EVH luthiers to do the work for you when you order a brand-new, professionally made version of Eddie's "Frankenstein." EVH has also fitted this version with a quartersawn maple neck for the same look as his iconic guitar. One of the most subtle touches is the single volume knob -- it's labeled as a tone knob, just like on the original.

New Upgrades Add Tonal Range

The EVH Eddie Van Halen Striped Series guitars build upon the legend's original homemade guitar -- with several new features. EVH has issued his own branded locking tremolo system for players embarking on warbling whammy dive bombs. The bridge comes equipped with the D-Tuna system -- a new best friend for players who instantly want to drop their low E string down a whole step for heavier chugging. The sole pickup is an EVH Wolfgang humbucker in the bridge position. Naturally, these guitars were developed with help from Eddie Van Halen himself, who oversaw 80 pickup prototypes before approving the type featured in Striped Series guitars.

Straightforward, Unchained Sound

Wolfgang pickups are known for their bright, aggressive sounds and ability to clean up the sound when the volume is decreased. The pickup on the Eddie Van Halen Series guitar is directly mounted into the body, making for more resonant tones and less tonal interference.

Features:

- Basswood body
- Hand-rubbed oil finish
- Quartersawn maple neck with compound radius maple fretboard
- Thumbwheel adjustment on truss rod
- EVH Wolfgang pickup is directly mounted to body in bridge position
- EVH locking tremolo
- D-Tuna system in bridge for easy switch to drop-D tuning
- Single volume knob
- EVH die-cast tuners

Van Halen enthusiasts: you no longer have to inhale paint fumes or piece together parts to get the sound and look that launched millions of record sales.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "THE BROWN SOUND"
Overall: simply put this guitar has one purpose to rock period it plays and sounds exactly like it should many reviews have mentioned frets sticking out and poor fretwork when i received mine the frets did protrude a little but after about a week the wood expanded and it is as smooth as can be very playable almost as if the wood expansion was accounted for during the build
Style of Music: rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Bumble Bee"
Overall: Got the guitar today. I had to make a couple changes to the action. A few tweaks here and there she was ready to go. I will note the fret work stinks and the ends of the frets are a bit sharp and the Floyd was stiff and clunky feeling. My tech will take care of that. Also I am not a fan of the D Tuna. Prolly never use it much. After some basic tweaks I plugged it into my Plexi Clone and was blown away! The tone from the pickup is very responsive and clean sounding. All notes ring out with out muddiness. The neck took an hour or so to get used to. The neck is a little chunky on top them thins out to the 22 fret. If you like Ibanez or Jackson necks it will take some time to get used to this one. Now for the single volume knob. This pot is very fast and smooth feeling. Roll back the volume and you get a tone close to a neck pickup. Nice and warm no ice pick tones here. Things I do not like about the guitar. Fret work stinks and at this price point the setup should have been better. The tuners are no better than what you get on a standard mexi strat. The fine tuner for the low e sting adjustment is limited due to the D tuna. I wish the guitar was not done in Poly. The rattle can replicas look more real. The price is a bit high for what your getting. Hate to say it but this guitar has that cheap chinese knock off guitar feel. What I like about the guitar. The raw wood feel of the neck. The pickup is killer The volume pot is the best I have owned and used The over all tone of this guitar clean and dirty is killer.
Style of Music: 80's Hair Metal and 80's Alt.
