Engineered for speed and precision, that is the EVH 5150 Series Deluxe in an Aqua Burst finish over a Poplar Burl top! Like its predecessor, the 5150 Standard includes a modified Strat-style basswood body with a deeper upper body curve. The graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck includes a comfortable modified “C” profile, hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and color matched “hockey stick” headstock with EVH logo decal. Built for smooth and speedy playability, the 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and cream dot inlays. The guitar includes a om designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking bridge pickup delivers the very best amount of punch and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. The EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucker neck pickup serves up no-nonsense, balls to the wall overdrive and endless sustain without skimping on articulate cleans when the volume is rolled down. A custom designed low friction volume knob creates even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, at the same time as the high friction tone knob will stay in place even though by accident bumped. An added new feature is available in the way in which of a lower bout kill switch, allowing you to mute your guitar for those stutter, rhythmic effects — think “You In point of fact Got Me.” A high-octane, high performance axe, the 5150 Standard boasts spotlight-able style in an all-new Ice Blue Metallic or Stealth Black finish with all-black hardware, including the EVH-branded Gotoh tuning machines.
