Eddie Van Halen and His guitars
Edward Van Halen's 5150 Guitar is one of the most widely known guitar in Rock history. Eddie personally built this particular instrument in Kramer's plant, and brushed it with Krylon "rattle-can". The instrument contains a simple Floyd Rose Tremolo, a dual-coil pickups, a single volume. It is a really simple instrument, very simple tone but truly wonderful.
Frankenstein Eddie Van Halen Myth
The myth behind this guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom crafted indeed inside the Neptune the NJ Kramer factory. And another reality is that the body isn't a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. In reality, the control cavity of this electric guitar is very distinctive from the 80s Kramers.

The neck also has a quite exciting feature, the back shape style is asymmetric, and Kramer has never given this style to other instruments. Ernie Ball MusicMan EVH model and EVH Wolfgang also adopted this design. This back shape is really exclusive, and incredibly comfortable and appropriate for playing.
Frankenstein Eddie Van Halen Pickups
Moreover, the pickup is Edward made. Rumors said that Seymour Duncan would launch an Eddie style pickup, and after which it'll be a customized in custom. The headstock of this instrument is also fully original. Kramer never made a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is an additional customized content.
We spent a great deal of time to study the data and tests of the initial guitar, and made great efforts to replicate it. The body, neck and fingerboard utilized exactly the same wood as the authentic guitar, but the default pickups that compose the price are Wilkinson pickups, which is far more cost-effective, quality reliable and may reduce much funds.
