What we say:

At A Glance:

The EVH Striped Series '78 Eruption Maple Fingerboard White With Black Stripes Relic is a stunning tribute to one of the most famous and exemplary guitars ever created. The '78 Eruption is an accurate recreation of a guitar that, at that time, had no equal. Eddie Van Halen's famous "Eruption" guitar was the result of Eddie's meticulous tweaking, experimentation and personal playing preferences, and when it was first unveiled it took the guitar world by storm.

The original '78 Eruption was truly one a kind, however this EVH Striped Series is as close to perfect as it can get.

Features We Love:

Attention to Detail

The EVH Striped Series '78 Eruption features careful attention to detail, marking it as a very authentic tribute. The tasteful relic finish to the body, neck and fingerboard make it easy to imagine that this guitar travelled on tour with Eddie himself. The guitar also features a single volume knob that is marked as "Tone", exactly the way it appeared on Eddie's signature axe.

Iconic Paintjob

We would be remiss to talk about an EVH '78 Eruption guitar without talking about it's killer paintjob. Arguably one of the most recognisable looks ever put on a guitar, and it's recreated here with incredible accuracy.

Immense Sound

While well known for its unique, iconic look, the '78 Eruption wouldn't have made anywhere near as much of an impact if it didn't have an incredible sound to back it up. This amazing recreation features a single EVH Wolfgang Humbucker, which really helps to dial in that searing hot sound that rocketed Eddie to stardom.

Who Is It For?

For die-hard fans of Eddie Van Halen, or even for players just looking for a great, ergonomic Strat style guitar that has a red-hot tone.
