Limited-edition Ash 5150 Deluxe

Hunting for the shred-worthy guitar of your dreams? Well, with the EVH limited-edition 5150 Deluxe Ash, you can stop dreaming and start rocking. Designed by Edward Van Halen himself, this solidbody electric guitar boasts a solid, natural ash body, which pairs perfectly with its muscular Wolfgang humbuckers. Thanks to a graphite-reinforced, quartersawn maple neck, you’ll enjoy rock-solid stability, while a compound-radius ebony fingerboard enables exceptional speed and comfort. Built to King Edward’s exact specifications and intentionally positioned against the guitar’s body, the 5150 Deluxe Ash’s dive-bomb-only D-Tuna-equipped Floyd Rose lets you mimic Ed’s signature trem work with ease, along with giving you instant access to Drop D tuning. This axe also has a killswitch for mind-blowing stutter effects and a low-friction volume pot for super-smooth swells. From Main Street to Mean Street, if you strap a 5150 Deluxe Ash across your shoulder, the cradle will truly rock.

Rock-hard, hard-rock construction

Right from your first rapid-fire lick, you’ll know that the 5150 Deluxe Ash is “the one.” Its contoured ash body — the same tonewood as Edward’s original Frankenstrat — sustains with a terrific balance of brightness and warmth, along with enough midrange “pop” to cut through a mix. This solidbody electric guitar boasts a graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck and a fast-playing compound-radius ebony fingerboard, ensuring easy chording down low and lightning-fast playability up high. The guitarists here are awed by the incredible, unfettered playability supplied by the 5150 Deluxe Ash.

Formidable Wolfgang humbuckers

The EVH 5150 Deluxe Ash comes outfitted with direct-mount EVH Wolfgang humbuckers. Superhuman chops aside, Eddie forged his unmistakable sound through incessant tinkering with guitar parts and pickups. To achieve his signature tone, Eddie paid particular attention to different pickup windings. The 5150 Deluxe Ash’s pickups are the culmination of his experimentation. They nail Eddie’s classic tone with muscular lows, singing highs, and snarling mids — all the essential elements of EVH’s elusive brown sound. This solidbody electric guitar also includes a low-friction volume knob, a high-friction tone knob, and a momentary killswitch for scorching-hot stutter action.

Dive-ready Floyd Rose tremolo

The 5150 Deluxe Ash boasts a top-loaded EVH-branded Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo. First gaining popularity in the 1980s, the Floyd Rose’s locking design keeps your guitar in tune, even if you like to perform extreme pitch pyrotechnics. When push comes to shove, you can force the whammy bar all the way down to the guitar’s body for psychotic dive-bombing. No matter how much you abuse it, you’ll maintain your tuning stability, thanks to the Floyd Rose tremolo’s locking design. On top of that, you can easily switch to Drop D tuning, courtesy of the 5150 Deluxe Ash’s D-Tuna.
