Eddie Van Halen and His guitars
Edward Van Halen's 5150 Guitar is among the most renowned instrument in Rock and roll history. Eddie personally assembled this specific electric guitar in Kramer's factory, and painted it utilizing Krylon "rattle-can". The electric guitar features a simple Floyd Rose Tremolo, a dual-coil pickups, a sole volume. It really is an incredibly simple guitar, simple tone but truly awesome.
Eddie Van Halen Custom Guitar Myth
The myth behind the guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom made indeed inside the Neptune the NJ Kramer manufacturing plant. And another fact is that the body is not a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. Actually, the control cavity of this instrument is really distinctive from the 80s Kramers.

The neck also carries a very fascinating feature, the back shape design is asymmetric, and Kramer has never given this design to other instruments. Ernie Ball MusicMan EVH model and EVH Wolfgang also used this design. This back shape is truly exclusive, and incredibly comfortable and appropriate for playing.
Eddie Van Halen Custom Guitar Pickups
In addition, the pickup is Edward manufactured. Rumors mentioned that Seymour Duncan would introduce an Eddie style pickup, and after which it will be a tailor made in custom. The headstock of this instrument is also fully original. Kramer by no means created a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is one more custom-made content.
We put in plenty of time to study the data and tests of the genuine guitar, and made great efforts to duplicate it. The body, neck and fingerboard used the exact same wood as the initial guitar, but the default pickups that compose the cost are Wilkinson pickups, which is far more cost-effective, quality reliable and can help you save much money.
