Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones

Engineered for speed, comfort and full-throttle attitude, the reimagined EVH Edward Van Halen 5150 Electric Guitar is an iconic blast from the past that blends both throwback and modernized features.

Like its predecessor, the 5150 features a modified Strat-style basswood body with a deeper upper body curve. The graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck features a comfortable modified "C" profile, hand-rubbed urethane back finish, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and matching "hockey stick" headstock with EVH logo decal. Built for smooth and speedy playability, the 12"-16" compound radius maple or ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays.

While the famed striped original had a single humbucking bridge pickup only, the all-new 5150 is outfitted with an HH pickup configuration controlled by a quick access three-way toggle on the lower bout. The custom designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 Humbucker bridge pickup delivers the perfect amount of punch and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. The EVH Wolfgang humbucker neck pickup serves up no-nonsense, balls to the wall overdrive and endless sustain without skimping on articulate cleans when the volume is rolled down. A high-friction tone knob provides unmatched tonal performance, while the custom designed EVH-branded low-friction volume knob creates even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells.

Decked out with a "dive-bomb" certified EVH-branded read more top-mount 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. read less

A serious guitarist should be able to set up their gear. It's not that tough and the manual ingeniously steps you through the process. A tuner, a screwdriver, and an Allen wrench are all you need.The neck is the best I've ever played. It's unfinished and so fast. The guitar comes with the action set a little high but even with raised strings, it's still incredibly easy to play.The pickups are great. From screaming distortion to super clean you can get any tone you want.My other guitar is a Gibson Les Paul Studio and i gotta say i now prefer the EVH.
