EVH Striped Series 6-String Electric Guitar (Red, Black and White Striped, Left-Handed)

Built for the southpaw, the left-handed EVH Striped Series 6-String Electric Guitar features a basswood Stratocaster-style body decked out in Eddie's famed red with black and white striped graphics. Its bolt-on quartersawn maple neck is sturdy and robust with graphite-reinforcement rods to fortify it against the extremes of nature, buttressing it against warping, while a hand-rubbed satin urethane finish makes for a fluid and high-speed playing feel. Hosting 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays, the speed 12 to 16 inches compound radius maple fingerboard is curved for smooth chord playing near the nut, flattening out for fast and furious leads without fear of fretting out during bends. A single ferocious direct-mount EVH Wolfgang humbucking bridge pickup is well-balanced and able to deliver balls-out overdrive and sustain without sacrificing the ability to clean up magnificently and articulate the cleanest passages when the volume is rolled down.

Other Features

Other features include a truss rod adjust spoke wheel at the base of the neck, a single black volume control knob (labeled tone), EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo with EVH D-Tuna, bar string retainer and Floyd Rose locking nut, EVH die-cast tuners, vintage-style strap buttons, and chrome hardware.

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 a 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-inch thickness at the 3rd fret and .825-inch at the 12th fret.

12 to 16 Inches Compound Radius Maple Fingerboard with 22 Jumbo Frets

The innovative 12 to 16 Inches 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 the 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 and harnesses Eddie’s scorching signature lead tone that captivated the world of rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘70s and ‘80s. These 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, even advising Floyd Rose on his early designs to integrate round disc finger-type tuners that you would see on a cello or violin. Now universally embraced, the EVH-branded Floyd Rose bridge features the 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 secures the strings in the saddle and nut, providing ultimate tuning stability and dynamic tremolo action. Standard equipment on Eddie’s personal guitars since the early ‘90s, the EVH D-Tuna is a unique patented device that enables players to drop the E to D and back, in an instant.

Unique Appointments

Other killer appointments of this axe include Eddie’s famed striped paint job, a licensed Fender Stratocaster headstock, and single volume Strat-style skirt knob that reads Tone. The volume knobs house a 500K EVH Bourns low friction pot with a treble bleed circuit for seamless swells.
