EVH STRIPED SERIES YELLOW
A Special Guitar With a Special Story
This yellow striped series guitar is based on the original 1979 Charvel Hybrid 'VH2' as seen held by Eddie Van Halen on the back cover of the now iconic Van Halen II album. A huge fan of this iconic guitar was legendary guitarist Dimebag Darrell of Pantera, whom always admired it and once asked Eddie after a show if he could have a copy of one made for him. Unfortunately Eddie never got a chance to give Dimebag his Yellow 'bumblebee' guitar before he was tragically shot on stage in 2004. The original 1979 Van Halen guitar was buried with Dimebag Darrell and serves as its final resting palce.
The EVH Striped Series guitar features a basswood Stratocaster-style body decked out in Eddie Van Halen’s famed striped graphics, in red with black stripes, black with yellow stripes and white with black stripes.
The guitar also has a graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck with a hand-rubbed oil finish and thumbwheel truss rod adjustment, compound-radius maple fingerboard (12”-16”) with 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays, and a single ferocious direct-mount Wolfgang® humbucking pickup.
Other premium features include a single white volume control knob (labeled
“tone”), single-ply black pickguard (white with black stripes model only), bar string retainer and Floyd Rose locking nut, EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo with EVH D-Tuna, EVH die-cast tuners, chrome hardware, vintage-style strap buttons and EVH neck plate.
