EVH has revealed the all-new Striped Series Frankie, refreshed Wolfgang WG Standard models including the all-new Wolfgang WG Standard Exotic Spalted Maple and new colors for the Wolfgang Special.
Widely regarded as the most recognizable electric guitar ever, Eddie Van Halen‘s iconic and revered Frankenstein guitar has arrived with a price tag the everyday musician can afford in the form of the Striped Series Frankie. (Manufacturer’s suggested retail price: $2,344.81)
Sporting Eddie‘s famed red with white-and-black-striped paint job and a worn-in reliced look, the all-new Frankie features a basswood Stratocaster-style body paired to a graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck. An oiled finish on the back of the neck allows for hours of playing comfort, while the 12″-16″ compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets was designed for fast and furious playing styles.
Routed for an HSS pickup configuration just like Eddie‘s original instrument, the Frankie features an EVH Wolfgang humbucking bridge pickup with a dummy Strat neck pickup and a dummy five-way blade housed in the middle position.
