We accept most Payment methods & offer Financing
For the Van Halen superfans out there, we're just as excited as you are about this EVH Striped Series Shark. If you're not as obsessed with the late guitar god as we are, the Shark was yet another of Eddie's iconic guitar creations, first seen live during the '78 World Tour and later immortalized on the back cover of Women and Children First. If any of Eddie's axes exuded raw style...the Shark was it, and this Striped Series recreation is totally on point, down to the "teeth" on the lower half of the body and the chrome eye hooks with the turnbuckles. Other features include two custom designed EVH Wolfgang® Alnico 2 Humbuckers with a treble bleed, a "hockey stick" headstock, and a compound radius 12"-16" fingerboard that will have you absolutely ripping. This is how you pay homage to one of the greatest guitar players of our generation!
After years of receiving requests for this famed instrument, EVH® is proud to release the new Striped Series Shark model. This high-performance axe features an angular ash body that is paired with a rock-solid set maple neck, carved to a comfortable modified “C” profile. The neck also features a “hockey stick” headstock and the same striped paint job on the back, while the fast-playing 12”-16” compound radius Pau Ferro fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and white dot inlays.
The Shark is also fitted with custom designed EVH Wolfgang® alnico 2 Humbucker bridge and neck pickups, delivering the ideal amount of power and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms in a perfectly balanced EQ curve. Adding to the unique style of this instrument, the bridge pickup features parchment bobbins with metal braid wire, while the neck pickup features black bobbins with metal braid wire. A low-friction volume knob with treble bleed provides for unmatched performance and even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, while a chrome-plated solid-brass harmonica bridge provides massive attack, presence and sustain.
In addition to its instantly recognizable Burgundy with Silver Stripes paint job, the Shark boasts other eye-catching features including black numbered speed knobs, three-way toggle switch housed on a brass mounting plate, brass nut, gold and chrome custom EVH-stamped Gotoh® tuners and chrome eye hooks with turnbuckles.
