NEW 5150, STRIPED & WOLFGANG GUITAR MODELS FROM EVH

Two of the most important and recognizable names in rock ‘n’ roll joined forces in 2005 to develop the EVH® brand of guitars, amplifiers and musical products. Guitar icon and virtuoso Eddie Van Halen combined his unparalleled instinct and innovation in instrument and amp design with the expertise of the craftsmen and engineers at Fender® to create a line of high quality, durable instruments that epitomize the sound of rock ‘n’ roll. Fender recently announced its Fall 2022 product launches from across its portfolio including new product from EVH®.

5150™ SERIES Limited Edition 5150 TM Deluxe Ash ($2,899.00 AUD)

Engineered for speed, comfort and full-throttle attitude, the reimagined 5150™ Series Deluxe Ash is an iconic blast from the past that blends both throwback and modernized features. The Limited Edition 5150™ Deluxe Ash features a modified Strat®-style body with a deeper upper body curve. The ash body is paired with a graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck that has a comfortable modified “C” profile, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and “hockey stick” headstock with EVH® logo decal. The 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and cream dot inlays. While the famed striped original had a single humbucking bridge pickup only, the 5150 Deluxe is outfitted with a dual humbucking configuration featuring EVH® Wolfgang® Alnico 2 humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching on the upper bout. A custom designed low friction volume knob creates even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, while the high friction tone knob will stay in place even if accidentally bumped. An added new feature comes in the way of a lower bout kill switch, allowing players to mute your guitar for those stutter, rhythmic effects — think “You Really Got Me.” Decked out with a “dive-bomb” certified EVH-branded top-mount Floyd Rose bridge, the locking tailpiece features fine tuners for each string and a patented EVH D-Tuna® for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant. Available in Natural with chrome hardware.

 

STRIPED SERIES EVH® Striped Series ’78 Eruption ($3,699.00 AUD)

The all-new EVH® Striped Series ’78 Eruption guitar combines many of Eddie Van Halen’s famed mods along with modernized features and a relic treatment e. The Stratocaster®-style body sports Eddie’s famed white-and-black-striped paint job and has been paired to a quartersawn maple neck with a hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish. The 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets was designed for fast and furious playing styles with maximum comfort, while a heel-mount truss rod wheel makes for time-saving neck adjustments. A single EVH Wolfgang® humbucking bridge pickup provides classic Eddie Van Halen guitar tone – from crystal cleans to fat and rich mids and lows, while the brass nut and six-saddle vintage Fender® Stratocaster® synchronized tremolo bridge with a 43mm brass block allow for authentic EVH tone. Available in White with Black Stripes Relic.
