EVH Striped Series Frankie Relic

Widely regarded as the most recognizable electric guitar ever, Eddie Van Halen's iconic and revered Frankenstein guitar now comes your way with a price tag the everyday musician can afford in the form of the EVH Striped Series Frankie.

Sporting Eddie's famed red with white-and-black-striped paint job and a worn-in reliced look, the all-new Frankie features a basswood Stratocaster-style body paired to a graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck. An oiled finish on the back of the neck allows for hours of playing comfort, while the 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets was designed for fast and furious playing styles. Routed for an HSS pickup configuration just like Eddie's original, Frankie features an EVH Wolfgang humbucking bridge pickup with a dummy Strat neck pickup and a dummy five-way blade housed in the middle position.

A sturdy and dependable EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem and Floyd Rose locking nut work in tandem for precise tuning even with extreme changes in pitch, while the EVH D-Tuna retunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger.

Other unique features include a white skirted Strat-style single volume control knob (labeled "tone"), custom black pickguard, reliced chrome hardware, standard strap buttons and EVH neck plate.

Features:

- 25.5" scale length
- Basswood Strat-style body
- Graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck with an oiled finish on the back and licensed Fender Strat natural headstock
- 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays
- Direct mount EVH Wolfgang humbucking bridge pickup, dummy Strat neck pickup and a dummy five-way blade housed in the middle pickup position
- EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem and locking nut
- EVH D-Tuna
- Skirted Strat-style volume knob that reads "tone"
- EVH-branded neck plate and standard strap buttons
- Black custom Frankie pickguard
- Available in a reliced Red with Black and White Stripes finish with reliced chrome hardware.

Overall: Pre ordered mid February just hit the door last night..was the only review here I promised I would review again when received and played.. It was great out of the box although I will adjust the string height down.. Still good action very playable and the intonation it's fantastic.. Tremolo mounted straight to the body per Eddie Van Halen's specs and it plays very well and stays at tune even with the strings that it was shipped with... Played thru Marshall DSL 100EVH DistortionEVH PhaseBrown sound coming thru So very easy to get IT to squeal..Frankie's distress looks and feels very authentic.. Much more realistic than I expected.. Bottom line this icon of a look is now in my hands couldn't be happier ..convinced it will cause me to be more motivated to enjoy and play..

Overall: I cannot comment on the authenticity of the guitar in my hand or the playability since I have not received it.not sure if they'll even post my review but I wanted to be the first to review the concept and I have pre-ordered it and can't wait..I almost purchased the striped series guitars since I do love the look but they weren't close enough and I didn't want to attempt to mod.I recently became fascinated again with the concept that a guitar would come out that was affordable and lo and behold it's been released as a pre-order and I didn't know it until yesterday.From what I see in the demonstrations and then NAMN videos and the likeness of the reproduction that's been done I'm just excited once I get my hands on it will tell you about the playability..

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
