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 has made a career of being copied in every which way imaginable. EVH® Gear proudly introduces a new Striped Series 5150 model based on his original instrument, featuring his distinctively striped 5150 motif and single humbucker setup.
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 back finish and “hockey stick” headstock. The fast-playing compound-radius (12”-16”) maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets, black dot inlays and a convenient heel-mounted truss rod adjustment wheel.
The 5150 is also fitted with a custom designed EVH® Wolfgang® alnico 2 Humbucker bridge pickup, delivering the perfect amount of power and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. A custom designed EVH-branded low-friction volume knob provides for unmatched performance and even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells.
Decked out with a rock solid “dive bomb” certified EVH-branded 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.
With its quintessential red 5150 hologram numbers and star decals, the Striped Series 5150 is a high-powered, high-performance machine that’s as kickass to look at as it is to play.
With classic red, black and white striped style that pays homage to Van Halen’s original guitar, giant sound and high-speed playability along with player-oriented features, this latest take on the Wolfgang Special is ready to crank out some serious rock.
Features an arched top basswood body with a robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications. The speedy 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard facilitates energetic riffing and blazing leads, and is the only Wolfgang Special finish to feature an ebony fingerboard besides the Stealth model. Also new for a Wolfgang Special model is its chrome hardware and non-matching black headstock, while other familiar traits include 22 jumbo frets and heel-mounted spoke wheel for easy truss rod adjustment. The crystal clear Custom Designed EVH Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are direct mounted, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. Every component of the guitar has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing.
The low-friction volume knob lets you perform speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts as your picking hand flies furiously across the strings. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Locking Trem combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane your whammy-bar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna® retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger, making this the only guitar you’ll need onstage.
Road-tested in arenas around the world, the EVH Wolfgang Special offers giant sound, ultra-high-speed playability and spotlight-ready style.

The SC-2 features humbucking pickups, alnico loaded for warmth, punch and presence, harmonically positioned and frequency calibrated. The SC-2 is an elegant two-pickup guitar. All Single Cut guitars feature treble-compensated volume controls that enhance pickup clarity at low volume levels. The SC-2 is crafted from basswood with an integral center body section, carved top and a deep lower cutaway with scoop for extended access to the upper register. The SC-2 features an "Extended Tail Section" meaning that the neck pocket is extended all the way to the pickup cavity, vastly increasing the amount of contact area of the neck to the integral center body section of the body. This has the effect of increasing the sustain of the guitar and is a feature not seen on guitars costing many times as much as the SC-2. The SC-2 features a hard rock maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. The SC-2 boasts gloss black, cherry burst and vintage tobacco burst finishes, with chrome hardware and standard dot inlays. All three models use die-cast tuners with a 15:1 gear ratio.
