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.

EVH Debuts New 5150 Chorus Pedal
The 5150 Chorus is based on a legendary chorus unit that Eddie Van Halen used on “Cathedral,” “Pretty Woman” and other Van Halen hits.
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.

For more on the pedal, head on over to jimdunlop.com.
