It’s just a wild-ass guess on my part, but I get a feeling that he (Eddie, and probably Wolf) wanted to do something this year, but for whatever reason they couldn’t make it happen, and as a consolation prize, this is what we get instead.

I ain’t hating it, but I’m also not buying it. I’m not a guitar player, but still would rather have the Frankie replica than one of these, even though these numbers are much lower, and have actually been played by Eddie.

I have a feeling, as long as he’s alive, we’re going to get these replicas every year for each album’s anniversary. We’ll get the black and yellow next year. The Shark the year after that. Maybe a Rasta or RUDE guitar after that. Would be cool to get a replica of his Kramer double necks from the DD tour and then for 1984, we’ll get the reliced 1984 Kramer replica. $$$$$$ Cha Ching! Just a thought. I’m really not holding my breath for new music any more.

Honestly, I don’t like the new 78 eruption relic… an EVH without a floyd.. and a double locking tremolo.. doesn’t look like an EVH guitar..

Eddie kows how to make money… no doubt.. but this relic.. has no sense to me, especially without a supporting tour…

well, wait…a supporting tour..

Yeah, a supporting tour…to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band first album..would be much appreciated…

This guitar with this price tag is aimed at collectors more than average players. It’s focus is “authenticity”. If you want the black and white with a Floyd, you can get one for under a grand and it’s nicely playable and you don’t have to worry about damaging your investment. I like the IDEA of these packages, but the fact that they’re aimed at the people with big checkbooks kinda sucks the life out of it for me. The Gene Simmons/KISS marketing plan is kinda douchey no matter who does it, but it works for all involved. At least KISS isn’t afraid to release demos and unreleased recordings as part of their packages which, let’s face it, is the only reason we even know who these people are. The MUSIC.

BY GUITAR WORLD STAFF, JUL 6, 2018


EVH 5150 Chorus Pedal

EVH has debuted its new 5150 Chorus pedal.

The new pedal is based on a legendary chorus unit that Eddie Van Halen used on Van Halen tracks like “Pretty Woman,” “Cathedral” and more.

The 5150 Chorus has a three-knob setup–Volume, Tone, and Intensity–with Input and Output Level pad switches, mono and stereo outputs and an internal True/Buffered Bypass switch for modern rig flexibility.

The price of the 5150 Chorus has yet to be determined.

EVH® STRIPED SERIES SHARK
Model: 5107922505 Series: Striped Series

Eddie Van Halen is known for infusing his iconic guitars with their own identity. With his visionary hands-on approach to personally modifying his style and tone, Eddie has created some of the most memorable guitars in rock ‘n’ roll history.

One of those guitars became as iconic to Van Halen’s sound as tapping was to Eddie’s playing. Aptly named the “Shark,” Eddie took his angular offset axe and sawed a chunk out of the body, leaving jagged edges in the wood that resembled teeth. After applying a coat of silver paint, Eddie added tape in his famed striped pattern and then grabbed a rattle can of burgundy Schwinn bicycle paint to finish the job. The final striped creation was initially seen live during the first Van Halen World Tour in 1978, but became more widely known and adored by fans after appearing on the back cover of Van Halen’s 1980 album, Women and Children First.

After years of receiving requests for this famed instrument, EVH® is proud to release the new Striped Series Shark model. This high-performance axe features an angular ash body that is paired with a rock-solid set maple neck, carved to a comfortable modified “C” profile. The neck also features a “hockey stick” headstock and the same striped paint job on the back, while the fast-playing 12”-16” compound radius Pau Ferro fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and white dot inlays.

The Shark is also fitted with custom designed EVH Wolfgang® alnico 2 Humbucker bridge and neck pickups, delivering the ideal amount of power and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. Adding to the unique style of this instrument, the bridge pickup features parchment bobbins with metal braid wire, while the neck pickup features black bobbins with metal braid wire. A low-friction volume knob with treble bleed provides for unmatched performance and even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, while a chrome-plated solid-brass harmonica bridge provides massive attack, presence and sustain.

In addition to its instantly recognizable Burgundy with Silver Stripes paint job, the Shark boasts other eye-catching features including black numbered speed knobs, three-way toggle switch housed on a brass mounting plate, brass nut, gold and chrome custom EVH-stamped Gotoh® tuners and chrome eye hooks with turnbuckles.

I built a Shark a few years ago and it turned out pretty good (I guess) but I’m definitely grabbing one of the new ones… I’m digging the grey primer one too. “)
