Eddie Van Halen and His guitars
Edward Van Halen's 5150 Guitar is among the most widely known electric guitar in Rock and roll history. Eddie personally built this guitar in Kramer's factory, and brushed it with Krylon "rattle-can". The instrument consists of a primitive Floyd Rose Tremolo, a dual-coil pickups, a single volume. It truly is a very simple instrument, very simple tone but really amazing.
5150 Evh Myth
The myth behind the guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom manufactured indeed within the Neptune the NJ Kramer manufacturing plant. And another truth is that the body isn't a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. In reality, the control cavity of this instrument is fairly distinctive from the 80s Kramers.
5150 Evh Features
The neck also has a very interesting feature, the back shape design is asymmetric, and Kramer has never offered this style to other guitars. Ernie Ball MusicMan EVH model and EVH Wolfgang also adopted this style. This back shape is really exclusive, and extremely comfortable and suitable for playing.
5150 Evh Pickups
Furthermore, the pickup is Edward produced. Rumors pointed out that Seymour Duncan would launch an Eddie style pickup, and after which it is going to be a tailor made in custom. The headstock of this guitar is also totally original. Kramer never ever manufactured a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is another custom-made content.
We used up a great deal of time to examine the data and tests of the initial guitar, and made great efforts to copy it. The body, neck and fingerboard used the same wood as the authentic guitar, but the default pickups that compose the cost are Wilkinson pickups, which is much more cost-effective, quality trustworthy and may save you much money.
