If you've been with us for a while, you may have seen - or if you're lucky, had the chance to play - the very expensive 2007 Frankenstein replica we have in the gallery. The typical reaction to the instrument is one of shock, awe, and a hesitancy to even go near the guitar...which is why we're excited to tell you that there's no need to be afraid anymore! EVH's new Striped Series Frankenstein "Frankie" brings the dream of playing Eddie's legendary guitar to life, and at a price that won't force you to decide between your kid's college fund and your six-string fantasies. This Frankenstein employs all the features that made Eddie's so incredible: a basswood Stratocaster-style body, oiled maple neck, HSS configuration with a dummy neck pickup and one "tone" knob, and most importantly - an EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem and nut for precise, reliable tuning even in the most face-melting dive bombs.
Widely regarded as the most recognizable electric guitar ever, Eddie Van Halen’s iconic and revered Frankenstein™ guitar now comes your way with a price tag the everyday musician can afford in the form of the EVH® Striped Series Frankenstein™ "Frankie."
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, 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.
A sturdy and dependable EVH-branded Floyd Rose® locking trem and Floyd Rose locking nut work in tandem for precise tuning even with extreme changes in pitch, while the EVH D-Tuna® retunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger.
Other unique features include a white skirted Strat-style single volume control knob (labeled “tone”), custom black pickguard, reliced chrome hardware, standard strap buttons and EVH neck plate.
