EVH

Description

Engineered for speed, comfort and full-throttle attitude, the EVH 5150 Deluxe Poplar Burl electric guitar is a blast from the past that blends throwback and modernized features. Like its predecessor, the 5150 Deluxe features a modified Strat-style basswood body with a deeper upper body curve. The graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck features a comfortable modified "C"-shaped profile, hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and color matched “hockey stick” headstock with EVH logo decal.

Built for smooth and speedy playability, the 12”–16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and cream dot inlays. While the famed striped original had a single humbucking bridge pickup only, the all-new EVH 5150 Deluxe is outfitted with an HH pickup configuration controlled by a 3-way toggle on the upper bout. The custom designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking bridge pickup delivers the perfect amount of punch and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. The EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking neck pickup serves up no-nonsense overdrive and endless sustain without skimping on articulate cleans when the volume is rolled down. A custom designed low friction volume knob creates even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, while the high friction tone knob will stay in place even if accidentally bumped.

An added new feature comes in the way of a lower bout kill switch, allowing you to mute your guitar for those stutter, rhythmic effects—think “You Really Got Me.” Decked out with a “dive-bomb” certified EVH-branded top-mount Floyd Rose bridge, the locking tailpiece features fine tuners for each string and a patented EVH D-Tuna for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant. A stylized modern spin on a fan favorite, the EVH 5150 Deluxe is sure to stun with a unique poplar burl top and all-chrome hardware, including the EVH-branded Gotoh tuning machines.
