Eddie Van Halen and His guitars
Edward Van Halen's 5150 Guitar is one of the most renowned instrument in Rock and roll history. Eddie personally built this particular instrument in Kramer's factory, and brushed it using Krylon "rattle-can". The instrument features a primitive Floyd Rose Tremolo, a dual-coil pickups, a single volume. It is a really simple electric guitar, very simple sound but actually wonderful.
Van Halen Signature Guitar Myth
The myth behind the electric guitar is Kramer Baretta, which was custom built indeed in the Neptune the NJ Kramer manufacturing plant. And another truth is that the body just isn't a Baretta but a Kramer Pacer Special. In reality, the control cavity of this instrument is very distinctive from the 1980's Kramers.
Van Halen Signature Guitar Features
The neck also carries a really fascinating feature, the back shape style is asymmetric, and Kramer has never supplied this style to other electric guitars. Ernie Ball MusicMan EVH model and EVH Wolfgang also used this design. This back shape is truly special, and incredibly comfortable and suitable for playing.
Van Halen Signature Guitar Pickups
Furthermore, the pickup is Edward produced. Rumors pointed out that Seymour Duncan would create an Eddie style pickup, and after which it is going to be a custom in custom. The headstock of this guitar is also fully original. Kramer never ever made a headstock like Ed's 5150, which is an additional personalized content.
We used up plenty of time to study the data and tests of the genuine guitar, and made great efforts to replicate it. The body, neck and fingerboard used the exact same wood as the original guitar, however the default pickups that compose the cost are Wilkinson pickups, which is a lot more cost-effective, quality trustworthy and may conserve much money.
