    Comments about EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar:

    Out of the box was ok. was able to setup 1mm action on 12th fret with very minimal buzz.
    I would have given it a 5, but the floyd was bottomed out against the tail end.
    Pulling the d tuna out can scratch the guitar.
    Proper floyd is setup parallel to the body. this setup cannot be set up to pull sharp and have the d tuna work properly.
    I put a back brace inside the guitar against the sustain block.
    Easy job, although some people who don't work on guitars allot will have an issue.
    It was like it is shipped incomplete. If you set it up like a regular floating floyd, the second you pull the d tuna out, your tuning is all out of wack.
    For a Fender made product, this mexican made guitar is priced to give EVH probably and additional $300 in royalties. , and will say that there is extra care put into it than other mexican made guitars i own such as the fender made jacksons.

      I will keep this short..........If you want to shred and have a ball and dig EVH, you will get a winner ! Easy setup and you are on your way . Great neck and the fret work was very well done.

          Comments about EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar:

          This is something I have wanted since I was maybe 15 and now I have one.I bought the red,white,and black because of course it's the most popular paint job. When I first played it, it wasn't exactly set up right. The floyd rose was at a slight angle so I adjusted it to where it was flat with the body.After a few adjustments tuning it,then it was time to test it. This thing has sustain and harmonics for DAYS!! This is the type of guitar that just makes you WANT to play more and more. The tapping is just effortless and the unfinished neck is very smooth along with the jumbo frets. Even though it has only one pickup,it cleans up very nicely when you roll the volume back on it,and when you crank it,depending on your amp settings,it's like trying to tame a wild bucking horse.."whoa trigger"..... I would give it a 4.5 but I can't so I give it a 4 but for those that read the review,I do give it a solid 4.5.I didn't give it a 5 because it wasn't set up right and out of tune but other than that,this is just a flat out shredding machine!!

            Comments about EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar:

            This is a great sounding and playing instrument. I own 30+ brands of guitars and this is one of my favorites. Using the volume/tone knob it cleans up great. Very easy to the touch to get a great sound for someone is does not have the hands for sound. I own all the striped series and every once in a while you will run into one that the frets are sharp on the ends but that is easily fixed. And like all guitars it might need a setup after shipping. If you can get over it being a signature guitar, it is a must own. If you can't, buy one and get it painted, that is what I am doing with this one. Don't ever pass on any guitar that sounds good because it is not a certain brand or it is so & so's guitar. All your doing is being a gearsnob.

            EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar

            By AL

            from Apex, NC

            Comments about EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar:

            First hands on.....really light! Basswood body. Never had one before in basswood....noticeably lighter than my other strats (have three strats and a les paul)! Besides that I honestly don't know what to say. I could probably never tell the difference between basswood, alder and ash as far as sound goes. I'll leave that up to the tonal experts. Speaking of sound, one trick pony.....one powerful, screaming, one trick pony that does that one trick really well !To be expected with a single powerful humbucker and a single volume knob labelled "tone" - we know that story! False harmonics are hard to miss. Feedback galore. Just what I wanted in this guitar ! Nice neck ! Strange.....seems to have no finish at all ike it is sanded smooth. I do like it though! I have no problem shredding on it whatsoever ! Negatives on the neck...ok, I get it, there is no finish....but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have filed the ends of the frets ! What the heck.....I could use this thing as a weapon ! Little bits of sharp metal protruding from the sides up and down the neck. An easy fix with a file, but c'mon guys...what, four screws and you are done messing around with the neck ! EVH labelled Floyd Rose ! When I was asking about getting a Floyd Rose fitted to one of my strats, a very good Raleigh area luthier, who has been doing outsourcing working for Fender for 30 years, told me .."if you want a Floyd Rose, buy a guitar that already has one. Otherwise you are asking for a lot of work (money) and potential problems". Alrighty then.....bummer actually....bought a Mexi HSS just for that purpose....hacking it up.....so off it went in a trade and I welcomed a Black American HSS strat to the family. So there went my quest for a Floyd Rose fitted Strat for the time being. Anyway, I am getting off track here. Drop D-Tuner (D-Tuna they call it) - the little thingy on the EVH Floyd Rose that drops the E string down to D and back with a push/pull of the knob works great... tiny bit off pure D, not even noticeable when you are playing, but of course I had to check it with a tuner...Easily corrected with the micro-adjustment knob. I like it ! Drop D tuning takes seconds! Disappointments: Non-floating Floyd Rose - dive bombs only....no err..up bombs...actually, that would be a rocket....if it were going up I mean.....right? Bombs come down, Rockets go up..... Onward.....I like it ! A lot actually ! Wasn't crazy about the Wolfgang. I guess it wasn't Strat enough for me but I thought they sounded nice (again, for a one trick pony) and besides that it looked strange. So when this thing came out , it definitely interested me. Glad I took the plunge ! Wish I could give it 4.5 stars but it looks like its 4 or 5. No in betweens but for those that actually read this review, I do give it a solid 4.5 !

            Great guitar for little money!

            By Ryan Holgerson

            from Austin Tx

            Comments about EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar:

            I was excited to open the box and check this thing out for myself. Upon opening i was pleasantly surprised at how good it felt and how comfortable it was. The basswood body is a nice touch and just feels right. The action was perfect and neck was straight and played nicely right out of the box. The trem however was not set up. The bridge was angled back resting against the body and was not level, as a floyd rose should be causing some tuning issues. As i went to adjust the tremelo i noticed after removing the back cover that there were only two springs coming from opposite sides and meeting in the middle. Someone dropped the ball here but i added a spring to the middle, separated the other two accordingly and after a few minutes of adjustments the trem floats and plays/responds great. When the trem is adjusted properly this allows for the "flutter" effect that is more Vai than Eddie but a nice added feature. The pickup responds nice to volume knob adjustments and is not nearly as hot and gainy as i thought it would be..and brighter than i expected as well. Overall i am blown away by the quality of this instrument and is the perfect compiment to my 5150iii mini stack and TC Electronics G System.

            I can't believe how good this guitar actually is. I can't afford a Wolfgang. I would love to have a Wolfgang but after playing this guitar, I forgot all about the Wolfgang. This guitar is awesome it's worth every penny it sounds great stays, it has the dynamics you want from the guitar and all the harmonics you could ever want... it's awesome! Eddie has outdone himself!
