Eddie Van Halen and His guitars
Edward Van Halen's 5150 Guitar is probably the most widely known guitar in Rock history. Eddie personally assembled this instrument in Kramer's factory, and brushed it by using Krylon "rattle-can". The guitar features a simple Floyd Rose Tremolo, a dual-coil pickups, a single volume. It is an extremely simple guitar, very simple sound but actually incredible.
Evh Gear Myth
The myth behind this guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom manufactured indeed inside the Neptune the NJ Kramer factory. And another truth is that the body is just not a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. The truth is, the control cavity of this guitar is very distinctive from the 80s Kramers.
Evh Gear Features
The neck also possesses a really intriguing feature, the back shape design is asymmetric, and Kramer has never given this style to other electric guitars. Ernie Ball MusicMan EVH model and EVH Wolfgang also used this style. This back shape is really exclusive, and extremely comfortable and appropriate for playing.
Evh Gear Pickups
In addition, the pickup is Edward created. Rumors said that Seymour Duncan would create an Eddie style pickup, and after which it'll be a custom in custom. The headstock of this electric guitar is also entirely original. Kramer never created a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is an additional customized content.
We spent lots of time to analyze the data and tests of the original guitar, and made great efforts to copy it. The body, neck and fingerboard employed the identical wood as the original guitar, but the default pickups that compose the cost are Wilkinson pickups, which is much more cost-effective, quality trustworthy and can save you much cash.
