"EVH Striped Series - Great Guitar"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This guitar came setup almost perfect. I had to shave down a screw for the locking nut, because it stuck up just a little too far to lock down the G & B string so the whammy would throw them out of tune. Once this slight adjustment was made, you can whammy the shit out of this thing and it stays perfectly in tune.This is the best guitar I have ever had so far, I mean the intonation is perfect. I can play anywhere on the neck pushing down on the strings and I am perfectly in tune. I have heavy fingers too and it sounds great no matter where I'm at. The pickup sounds great, and on my tube amp after backing down, it cleans up really nice. It cleans up even better than my Les Paul does. You then put the volume back on 10 and it screams to high heaven.If you like using a Floyd Rose and have always had problems with guitars not staying in tune, especially when you want to go drop D, this is your guitar. I can use the D-Tuna to go to Drop D quickly where it is still perfectly in tune, and then back to E without being out of tune at all as well as whammy the shit out of it and it is still perfectly in tune. The tone is great, very smooth and versitile backing down on the volume to clean it up or give it a nice slight crunch, this guitar is amazing for sure.
I have been playing for over 30 years, mostly playing for just myself now, but will be getting into a band sometime soon.
I play mostly hard rock, but like to do a little rockabilly here and there as well.
