Eddie Van Halen and His guitars


Edward Van Halen's 5150 Guitar is probably the most renowned instrument in Rock history. Eddie individually built this instrument in Kramer's facility, and brushed it choosing Krylon "rattle-can". The instrument consists of a primitive Floyd Rose Tremolo, a dual-coil pickups, a sole volume. It truly is an incredibly simple guitar, simple sound but truly amazing.


Evh Kramer 5150 Myth


The myth behind the electric guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom made indeed within the Neptune the NJ Kramer factory. And another truth is that the body isn't a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. The truth is, the control cavity of this instrument is fairly different from the 80s Kramers.

The neck also has a really exciting feature, the back shape design is asymmetric, and Kramer has never provided this style to other instruments. Ernie Ball MusicMan EVH model and EVH Wolfgang also adopted this style. This back shape is actually special, and extremely comfortable and appropriate for playing.

Furthermore, the pickup is Edward produced. Rumors pointed out that Seymour Duncan would create an Eddie style pickup, and after which it will be a custom in custom. The headstock of this guitar is also entirely original. Kramer never manufactured a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is an additional personalized content.


We used up plenty of time to analyze the data and tests of the authentic guitar, and made great efforts to duplicate it. The body, neck and fingerboard employed the identical wood as the original guitar, but the default pickups that compose the price are Wilkinson pickups, which is much more cost-effective, quality reliable and may conserve much money.
