EVH Guitar Pickups
If you play guitar, then you probably don't need any introduction to know what the letters "EVH" stand for. But just in case, here's a heads-up: that's Eddie Van Halen, and the only thing more impressive than his guitar work is how he's somehow managed to barely age since the '70s. Throughout his career, Eddie's had a reputation for hacking together all kinds of improvised guitar mods and accessories, and now those have culminated in a line of signature EVH gear including the EVH guitar pickups you'll find here. Like everything else he's authorized to bear his initials, these pickups are designed to do one thing: to deliver the kind of sound he takes onstage himself.
Choosing your EVH guitar pickups is really about as easy as deciding which of Eddie's guitars was your favorite, and which one has the sound you want to end up closest to. If you've always been a fan of the Wolfgang axes, then that probably means the EVH Wolfgang Bridge Humbucker Pickup or the EVH Wolfgang Neck Humbucker Pickup - or both, to get the full effect in both positions. On the other hand, maybe you're more of a Frankenstrat kind of guy (or girl). In that case, there's the EVH Frankenstein Humbucker and, for those who like a little extra shine on their instrument, the EVH Frankenstein Humbucker Guitar Pickup in Chrome.
No matter which one of these EVH guitar pickups fires you up, there's no doubting the performance it can deliver in the right hands - hands which could easily be yours. Just take a look at some of the reviews on these things if you want a little more confirmation; virtually every guitarist who takes them out for a spin has nothing but good things to say and there's a reason for that. And besides, you just know Eddie Van Halen wouldn't give the go-ahead to stamp his initials on a set of pickups unless they seriously deserved it.
