EVH Guitars Brand Info

Eddie’s forays into the world of hard rock began in 1978 when he partnered with his brother to create the iconic band Van Halen. His passion for pushing the boundaries of guitar music as the world knows it didn’t stop there, though. A few facts:

 

  • In the 1980s, Eddie began partnering with quality guitar brands like Peavey and Fender to produce cutting-edge electric guitars to keep up with the evolving world of electric guitar.
  • From 1980 to 2000, his signature style drove the development of Superstrat guitars with humbuckers and modified amps to reproduce his unique sound. 
  • He began working with Charvel, a subsidiary of Fender, to create guitars that matched his specs and famous color designs.
  • This produced the EVH/Fender Frankenstein Replica, an exact copy of his iconic black, red, and white-striped Frankenstein electric guitar. 
  • It was an immediate hit, and gave rise to the EVH brand, established in 2006.
  • EVH has been popular with players at every skill level since hitting the market over a decade ago. 
  • It offers a host of top-quality guitars, from the approachable Wolfgang Standard to the affordable replica version of Eddie’s famous Frankenstein Guitar. 

A guitarist is only as good as their gear, and EVH supplements its selection of guitars with a range of high-gain amplifiers and the 5150 Stealth Head to help you replicate the sound of the legend himself. Available in numerous head variations and wattages, these amplifiers are great for everything from small practice rooms to all-out gigs.
