EVH Eddie Van Halen Frankenstein Replica Electric Guitar Black/White/Red

EVH Eddie Van Halen Frankenstein Replica Electric Guitar Black/White/Red

Eddie Van Halen and Fender have joined forces to bring you EVH® brand guitars, amps and musical products, beginning with a most eagerly awaited musical event: the unveiling of a 300-instrument limited edition run of the Eddie Van Halen Frankenstein™replica electric guitar. This red, black and white ash-body guitar has been put through an astounding aging process to replicate the original down to every last scratch, ding and cigarette burn. Fender craftsmen even scoured the land for 1971 quarters—just like the original Eddie stuck under the original tremolo bridge near the Floyd Rose® Original tremolo bridge. The guitar features a Seymour Duncan® Custom Shop EVH® humbucking pickup, a single master volume knob (that's labeled "Tone") mounted on a partial black pickguard identical to the original. Replicating the original, there's a non-functional three-way switch and single-coil pickup that occupy two of the three pickup cavities. It's a phenomenally crafted piece of rock history—of guitar history, period—and it could only come from Eddie Van Halen and the talented resources of Fender. It simply must be seen, heard and felt to be believed, and it will re-evoke the awestruck wonder and sheer thrill you experienced the first time you saw, heard and felt the incredible musical power of Eddie Van Halen.

Eddie's Marshall that he played during the DLR era was a custom, hot-rodded amp that was never for sale with the specs he had in it. This new Vintage Modern Head is the closest thing to it, and I would suspect that it is more versatile than Eddie's old amp. Older Marshall's are not known for brilliant clean channels, and this new JVM is.

Dunlop EVH95 Eddie Van Halen Signature Wah Guitar Effects Pedal

Dunlop EVH95 Eddie Van Halen Signature Wah Guitar Effects Pedal

The EVH95 Signature Crybaby Wah Pedal is a member of the celebrated EVH Signature Series that was developed after intensive design collaboration with the legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen. Early on in the process, Eddie handed over his "Holy Grail" Crybaby-a standard Crybaby customized in the early Nineties with a more vocal-like, High Q inductor and a wider frequency sweep. Amazingly, Dunlop found that over the years Eddie's unique wah style, which uses mostly the middle range of the effect pedal's action, had carved his own curve into the pot's resistive element, making the middle range even more defined and increased the low end sweep. Dunlop's clones of the worn-in pot and hand-selected inductor give the EVH-95 the same "Holy Grail" feel and tone, and it's true hardwire bypass, dual bright blue bypass LEDs, and graphics based on the black and yellow-striped guitar featured on Van Halen II round out this EVH-approved Crybaby Wah Pedal with a voice and look all its own.
