Product description

We are incredibly excited to offer the newest model in the EVH Striped Series lineup: the '78 Eruption! An official and affordable replica of the famous black-and-white striped single-pickup guitar featured on the cover of Van Halens 1978 debut album. Eddie played this guitar on his unprecedented and mind-blowing “Eruption” guitar solo, thus its nickname, and almost immediately, this monumental instrument became a timeless icon, symbolic of a paradigm shift in guitar-driven rock and roll.

Back when this trailblazing album first appeared, nobody had ever seen or heard a guitar like that because no such guitar ever existed. What was this? You couldn’t buy one. That’s because he made it himself. The 22-year-old Eddie Van Halen had the mind of not only a great musician, but also of an innovative inventor—a constant tinkerer who was always messing with his gear. Eddie would say it was out of necessity as no off-the-shelf guitar had the features he needed to really do his job and realize his full potential. So, he took matters into his own capable hands — refretting the neck, installing a humbucking pickup which he potted in paraffin wax, as well a single master volume knob (famously labeled as “Tone”), brass nut and tailpiece from a ’58 Strat, cutting out and mounting his own homemade black and of course, coming up with iconic striped motif.

This new Striped Series '78 Eruption features a 12-16" compound fretboard radius with 22 jumbo frets, a single EVH Wolfgang humbucker pickup, and brass nut and six-saddle vintage Fender® Stratocaster synchronized tremolo bridge that has a 43mm brass block!
