EVH Striped Series Star


Oh yes. I’m bloody loving the EVH Striped Series, especially how it’s now branching out into other EVH designs beyond the original trio of striped patterns. First they added the ‘Unchained’ design to the line and now this: the EVH Star based on the guitar Eddie used on the 1980 Invasion tour. I wonder if this increases the likelihood that some day we’ll see a guitar based on the Shark, Eddie’s chopped-up Ibanez Destroyer. Here’s the press release about the Star.

PRESS RELEASE: With its distinctive body shape and black and white gloss “1980 Invasion” graphic finish, the EVH Star model is without question one of the most eye-catching guitars in the Stripe Series lineup. First seen during the “1980 Invasion” tour, there’s nothing alien about the rest of this high-performance tone machine, either, with its sleek Star basswood body, rock-solid quartersawn maple neck with a hand-rubbed urethane finish, fast and smooth compoundradius rosewood fingerboard (12”-16”) with comfortably rolled edges and 22 jumbo frets, single ferocious EVH direct-mount pickup with single black plastic control knob (master volume), EVH Floyd Rose® bridge and locking nut, and EVH tuners.
