EVH 5150 Series Standard in Rocket Red

Revamped Super S-Type Design with Dual Wolfgang Humbuckers

Written by

Sam Beattie

The 5150 reborn. Like its classic predecessor, the new 5150 from EVH has been engineered for speed, precision and full-throttle attitude. Combining classic ‘80s specs with cutting-edge playability, this instrument simply isn’t for the faint-hearted. Approach with caution!

Body & Neck

The Basswood body employs a modified S-style shape with a deeper upper body curve for extra comfort. The bolt-on quartersawn Maple neck features a familiar modified C profile, and a graphite-reinforced bolt-on construction.

A compound radius with Maple fingerboard ensures a comfortable, agile playability, while providing plenty of top-end emphasis. This guitar will simply sound crystal-clear, whether you’re pumping out stadium-sized riffs or two-hand tapping.

Hardware & Electronics

Unlike the 5150 of old, this one comes with dual humbuckers. In both the bridge and neck positions, you get a custom-designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucker. Expect punch and articulation with sweet sustain. In the neck, you’ll have access to more dynamics than you might expect. It cleans up perfectly with a bit of volume tweaking!

Finally, a divebomb-certified EVH top-mount Floyd Rose bridge offers full vibrato carnage. Fine tuners and a patented EVH D-Tuna allow instant switching from standard to drop D. Gnarly!
