The 5150 Standard is now available in a standout Slime Green finish, while the 5150 Deluxe offers a new quilt maple top wrapped in a mesmerising Purple Daze finish.

Like their predecessor, both models feature a modified Strat-style basswood body with a deeper upper body curve for enhanced ergonomic comfort. 

The graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck features a comfortable modified “C” profile, hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and colour matched “hockey stick” headstock with EVH logo decal. Built for smooth, speedy playability, the 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and dot inlays.

While the famed striped original had a single humbucking bridge pickup only, the current 5150 is outfitted with a dual humbucking configuration controlled by a three-way toggle switch on the upper bout. 

The custom designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking bridge pickup delivers the perfect 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, while the high friction tone knob will stay in place even if accidentally bumped. An added new feature comes in the way of a lower bout kill switch, allowing players to mute the guitar for those stuttering, rhythmic effects.

Decked out with a “dive-bomb” certified EVH-branded top-mount Floyd Rose bridge, the locking tailpiece features fine tuners for each string and a patented EVH D-Tuna for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant.

“Engineered for speed, comfort and full-throttle attitude, the reimagined 5150 Series Standard and Deluxe models are an iconic blast from the past that blends both throwback and modernised features,” EVH said.
