The EVH Striped Series Guitar will give you that iconic EVH flair. This basswood guitar has a 1-piece maple neck and a Floyd Rose tremolo. The EVH Striped Series provides a timeless style that spans Van Halen’s musical career. The powerful and articulated guitar tones you’d expect from an EVH guitar are delivered by a single direct-to-body mounted EVH pickup. The dive-bomb-only D-Tuna-equipped Floyd Rose, designed to his exact specifications and purposely positioned against the body, allows you to easily emulate Eddie’s characteristic trem work while also providing immediate access to Drop D tuning. The EVH_Striped Series has incredible tone, practical playability and comfort, and the kind of breathtaking appearance you’d expect from a world-class guitar.
The EVH Striped Series electric guitars are made in Mexico to a very high standard indeed, the finish is flawless and the neck feels sublime. The neck on the EVH Striped Series is made from quartersawn Maple which is graphite-reinforced and features a thumbwheel truss rod adjuster at the base of the neck. The hand-rubbed oil finish feels great in the hand and the compound radius fretboard allows you to get away with a low action yet still make huge bends all over the neck. The EVH Striped_Series is a simple enough guitar with a mean single direct-mount Wolfgang humbucker wired straight to a volume control which is labelled “tone” just to confuse you!
Based on Eddie’s famous striped guitar, the EVH Striped Series Black with Yellow guitar has no scratchplate with just the direct mount humbucker. The double locking trem consists of a Floyd Rose locking nut and an EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo with the handy EVH D-Tuna installed on the low E string. The EVH D-Tuna allows you to drop the low E to a D without the hassle of undoing the locking nuts and retuning the whole guitar, drop D in an instant!
We think the EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar offers superb value for money for such a quality instrument with quality parts. Whether you’re an Eddie Van Halen fan or not, this axe is sure to appeal to rockers old and young!
