The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
Just in on trade!
The EVH 5150 Striped Series Electric Guitar continues the legacy of one of the hottest guitars of the '80s with the same wild look and searing tone that Eddie made famous with the Striped Series 5150 model based on his original instrument, featuring his distinctively striped 5150 motif and single humbucker setup. 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.
This 2020 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 12”-16” radius Maple fretboard 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 and a patented EVH D-Tuna for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant.
Add in the quintessential red 5150 hologram numbers and star decals, and this Striped Series 5150 is a high-powered, high-performance machine that’s as good to look at as it is to play.
This is a used guitar and does show some signs of slight use, but has been fully tested and functions as expected. Please take a moment to review our pictures, as they accurately portray the true condition of this guitar.
