Cool new Ed video…Love the 5150 guitar.

EDDIE’S fingers aren’t fingers they are muscle-powered pistons that hammer guitar strings to the fretboard with the force of a rivet gun”.

Refreshed amp and combos lead 2018 line-up

NAMM 2018: Eddie Van Halen’s guitar and amp-making elves have been busy in the workshop and have unveiled an update to the 5150 III 6L6 amp line, the Wolfgang Special Striped Black and White guitar and two leftie options in the Wolfgang Special LH and EVH Striped Series LH R/B/W.

EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 amp head and combos

The 6L6-equipped version of the classic 5150 design has been given a reduction in size and control foot-print thanks to the introduction of a new compact casing. There are also new space-saving dual-concentric volume and gain controls, which also allow for more convenient level matching between channels one and two.

Available in Black or Ivory textured vinyl as a head, 1×12 combo and 2×12 combo.
EVH Wolfgang Special Striped Black and White

A new guitar for 2018, the Special Striped Black and White features a quartersawn bolt-on maple neck, EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking pickups and other EVH hardware innovations such as the D-Tuna, low-friction volume control and high-friction tone control, alongside a Floyd Rose vibrato.

While we’re on Wolfgangs, the firm has unveiled the EVH Wolfgang Special LH, which as you may expect, offers a leftie-friendly iteration of the Wolfgang Special (pictured below).
EVH Striped Series LH R/B/W

A second left-hander for 2018, the LH R/B/W has a basswood body, the iconic EVH red, white and black artwork, plus a quartersawn maple neck, EVH Wolfgang humbucker, Floyd Rose vibrato and EVH D-Tuna.

Eddie Van Halen Preps Three Signature ‘Eruption’ Model Guitars

“As close to my original in sound and feel as humanly possible,” guitarist says of ’78 tribute, timed around 40th anniversary of Van Halen’s debut LP

Eddie Van Halen is marking the 40th anniversary of Van Halen’s self-titled debut LP with a trio of tribute guitars — the Super ’78, ’78 Eruption Relic and ’78 Eruption — modeled after the signature black-and-white-striped instrument he used to record that iconic album.

“Of all the guitars I’ve ever built, the white and black guitar will always be my favorite because it did all the things I needed a guitar to do, which prior to that guitar did not exist,” Van Halen said in a statement. “So much changed because of it. I recorded the first album with it and did the first world tour with it. The ’78 Eruption tribute is as close to my original in sound and feel as humanly possible. I’m incredibly proud of it.”

EVH Gear recreated the guitar, named after the musician’s instrumental showcase “Eruption,” along with the accompanying period-correct case and case candy items.

The Super ’78 model, limited to only eight guitars, includes all of the original “Eruption” guitar’s technical and design specs — including an ash Fender Stratocaster body, vintage Stratocaster bridge and black-and-white-striped paint job designed to recreate the wear and tear of Van Halen’s first world tour. The company also recreated Van Halen’s original G&G case and accessories, including Seventies-era Fender Super Bullet strings, Van Halen Seventies tortoiseshell picks and a ’78 chain strap.

The package also includes an exclusive collector’s booklet, a backstage pass vinyl cloth sticker and multiple autographed pieces, including a certificate of authenticity, 8×10 1978 concert photo of the guitarist, a vinyl copy of Van Halen and a rare original red vinyl of Van Halen’s Looney Tunes Merrie Melodies. The guitarist played “Eruption” on each guitar and signed the back of every headstock, and a video recording of the performance will be included on an EVH thumb drive.

The ’78 Eruption Relic, limited to 30 guitars, included all the specs of the Super ’78, along with the G&G case and accessories. This model also features a collector’s booklet, backstage pass sticker, concert photo, signed certificate of authenticity and autographed copy of Van Halen.

The ’78 Eruption, limited to 40 pieces, is designed to appear in its original pristine condition, prior to the band’s world tour. In addition to the G&G case and accessories, it includes the booklet, sticker, concert photo, signed certificate of authenticity and autography vinyl copy of Van Halen.

As cool as this package is, it’s a bummer that he’s “marking” the 40th anniversary with another $$$ reliced guitar and swag as opposed to releasing some unreleased stuff from that album or even something live from ’78. I like the package, though and the video of him playing and signing each guitar is a cool little addition, too. Even throwing in the 3 in 1 oil and chain strap is a nice touch. I’m know I’m going to cringe when the price tag is revealed.
