EVH Striped Series 5150 Electric Guitar

When Eddie Van Halen introduced his famous red, white and black striped 5150™ guitar in 1984, he never would have fathomed the thousands of copies it would inspire. But then again, Eddie made a career of being copied in every which way imaginable. EVH proudly introduces a new Striped Series 5150 model based on his original instrument. Featuring his distinctively striped 5150 motif and single humbucker setup, it’s the real deal!.

The Striped Series 5150 has a basswood body identical to the original, with a bolt-on quartersawn maple neck. Featuring a comfortable modified “C” profile, hand-rubbed satin urethane finish and unique “hockey stick” headstock, its pure Eddie. The fast-playing 12″-16″ compound radius maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets, plus black dot inlays. Easily accessible, there’s also a convenient heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.

The 5150 is also fitted with a custom-designed EVH® Wolfgang® alnico 2 humbucking bridge pickup. So, it delivers the perfect amount of power and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. You’ll also find a custom designed EVH-branded low-friction volume knob. Providing for unmatched performance and even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, it feels great.

Decked out with a rock solid “dive bomb” certified EVH-branded Floyd Rose® bridge, the locking tailpiece features fine tuners for each string. And don’t forget the patented EVH D-Tuna® for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant!

With its quintessential red 5150 hologram numbers and star decals, the EVH Striped Series 5150 is a high-powered, high-performance machine that’s as kickass to look at as it is to play. And – as you’d expect at PIPERS – we’ve done our killer setup service so she’s ready to rock.

Compound radius neck on the EVH Striped Series 5150 electric guitarFEATURES:
BOLT-ON QUARTERSAWN MAPLE NECK WITH EDDIE VAN HALEN’S MODIFIED “C” BACKSHAPE

Bolt-on is a type of neck construction that joins the maple neck to the body of the guitar with screws or bolts, resulting in bright tone with more control. The quartersawn grain runs the length of the neck and as well as being visually appealing, is less susceptible to shrinking, warping or splitting. Graphite-reinforcement rods flank the truss rod for even more increased neck stability, while your fretting hand will feel right at home on the modified “C”-shape neck, which has a .790” thickness at the 3rd fret and .825” at the 12th fret.

12″-16″ COMPOUND RADIUS MAPLE FINGERBOARD WITH 22 JUMBO FRETS

The innovative 12″-16″ Compound Radius Maple Fingerboard design gradually flattens toward the heel from its smaller and more rounded profile at the nut for unparalleled comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and seamless bending near the heel. Maple is a dense wood that produces bright, snappy tones, articulate notes with bite and a tight low end. Versus a 24-fret neck, a 22-fret layout shifts the neck pickup farther away from the bridge, centering it at the “sweet spot” and resulting in an overall warmer tone. The jumbo fret wire slightly increases the distance between string and fingerboard for seamless and comfortable bends.

DIRECT MOUNT EVH WOLFGANG HUMBUCKING PICKUP

Not all humbuckers are created equal. The direct mount EVH Wolfgang humbucker with Alnico 2 magnets is hotter! Harnessing Eddie’s scorching signature lead tone that captivated the world of rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘70s and ‘80s, it rocks! This humbucking bridge pickups deliver rich harmonics, cutting highs and snarling mids in spades.

EVH-BRANDED FLOYD ROSE LOCKING TREM, R3 LOCKING NUT AND EVH D-TUNA

Eddie Van Halen was the first player to popularize the innovative Floyd Rose locking tremolo. He even advised Floyd on his early designs to integrate finger-type fine tuners like you’d see on a violin. Now universally embraced, our EVH-branded Floyd Rose bridge features our EVH logo stamped on the bridge plate, steel saddles and a solid brass block. The Floyd Rose bridge and R3 (43 mm) locking nut is a professional-grade double-locking design. That means it secures the strings in the saddle and nut, which provides ultimate tuning stability and dynamic tremolo action. The patented EVH D-Tuna enables players to easily change to Drop D tuning instantly! It was standard on Eddie’s personal guitars since the early ‘90s, so you know it performs!

UNIQUE APPOINTMENTS

Other standout appointments of this axe include a red with black-and-white striped paint job and “5150” hologram decal. Then there’s the EVH hockey stick headstock with matching striped paint job and star logo too. And, a custom-designed EVH-branded low-friction volume knob provides for unmatched performance and even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells.
