Shred Like Ed on this D-Tuna Equipped Axe

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.

Upgrades Add Tonal Range

The EVH Eddie Van Halen Striped Series guitars build upon the legend's original homemade guitar with modern 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 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.

Check out the Striped Series in action as we run through our top 5 Van Halen solos:


Features:

- Basswood body
- Hand-rubbed oil finish
- Quartersawn maple neck with compound radius maple fretboard

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.

Overall: I approached this guitar with the same expectations I would have had for any Mexican made Fender. MAN, was I wrong! I ordered it as a second to my Gibson SG Standard. I wanted something a bit more Shreddy and I figured it would be a guitar I played sparingly when I had the urge to rip an 80's hard rock solo. Beyond that, it would make a pretty accent piece. HOLY **** this thing blew me away.The finish is excellent, definitely a poly coat but it doesn't have that inch-thick clear coat that most Fender Strats seems to have. It feels thinner for sure.My neck was perfect, I see a fair amount of complaints towards the fret ends sticking out, but I got lucky I guess. It feels better than any American special or standard strat that I've played. It's more like a 60's slim profile Gibson but MUCH smoother thanks to the lack of finish. The fretboard is perfect for chording and flattens out nicely around the 12th fret.I didn't have any issues with intonation or the Floyd Rose positioning out of the box, however it came with 9 gauge strings which are too flimsy for me, especially tuned down a half step as it arrived. Swapping for 10's and intonation for standard tuning was a breeze. D-Tuna works perfectly. you just have to make sure the bridge rests on the body when not in use.Lastly, the pickup. I'm not even sure how to describe it. It's extremely hot but also perfectly articulate. Every note rings, harmonics jump off of the strings, there is no muddiness regardless of volume, and yet it isn't shrill or biting like a Dimarzio. The low friction volume pot feels very well built and I have no concerns about it wearing out. I don't know what magic they are using but this pick up cleans up without adding unwanted low end when rolled back.I was really expecting a sub-$1k import guitar to feel and sound like a sub-$1k import guitar. What I got was something far more versatile and of a higher quality than a lot of American Fender's I've played. It's not just a gimmick to sell that EVH paint job, this thing delivers in every way that counts.

Overall: This guitar is built by Fender in Mexico. The craftsmanship and component quality is much better than any of the Mexican Strats I have seen. I have 3 US Strats and this EVH ranks close in my opinion. I love the neck, it is quite different than a strat neck, less radius on the fretboard and the profile is more of a U shape. It is unfinished which I like better than even the satin finished ones. I saw some complaints with the fretwork, mine is no different than any of my US strats. The EVH humbucker is awesome, great sustain yet articulate. If you are looking for versatility buy a strat. If you want a hard rock distortion machine this is a great choice.
