The Women and Children First Guitar!
With its uniquely shaped Ash body, along with fitted turnstyles, and familiar Burgundy with Silver Stripes finish, the EVH Striped Series Shark is guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd on looks alone.
Featuring the kind of high-performance levels of playability you've come to expect from an EVH axe, along with some custom designed EVH Wolfgang alnico 2 humbuckers, this guitar not only looks the part, it also delivers the goods in style.
Super Sleek Neck
Attached to that famous angular body you'll find a rock-solid set maple neck, with a comfortable modified "C" profile. The back of this neck and its familiar Hockey Stick style headstock are both adorned with the same Burgundy and Silver Stripes finish as the body - which is an accurate recreation of the pattern on the original.
Sitting atop this neck you'll find a compound-radius Pau Ferro fingerboard, designed to accommodate the fastest of playing styles with ease, allowing you to pull-off those outrageous Van Halen-esque tapping sections that you just know you'll attempt as soon as you pick this guitar up.
Custom Voiced Pickups
Made especially for the EVH Striped Series guitars, these custom designed EVH Wolfgang alnico 2 Humbuckers deliver the perfect amount of power and articulation.
Featuring the kind of sweet sustain and thick, chunky rhythms that you'd expect from an EVH guitar, but with a perfectly balanced EQ curve, they're the ideal pickup choice for this particular axe.
