It won't bite. But its sound has plenty of bite. The EVH Stripe Series guitar is modelled on a piece of rock history, having become a huge part of the legendary Eddie Van Halen's iconic image. Legend has it that Eddie took a saw and cut out a chunk of his angular offset guitar, then painted his famous stripes onto the surface. The result was the Shark, which this guitar is modelled after. Loaded with a single EVH Wolfgang pickup, it is an instrument of immense sonic power, capable of firing out electric tone and handling the most technical of guitar riffs.
Ferocious yet refined. Underneath the spectacular visuals of this guitar, there is a wealth of guitar crafting expertise which helps to bring it to the status of a professional's guitar. A maple neck offers bright resonance and smooth manoeuvrability. On top of this, the maple fretboard has a beautiful tone and fast playability, which allows you to fly around the frets unhindered. More than a sight to behold, this guitar will revolutionise your riffs.
