EVH Striped Series Electric Guitar with Graphite-Reinforced Quartersawn Maple Neck, Eddie Van Halen-Inspired Custom Pickup Modifications, EVH-Branded Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo Bridge and Maple Fingerboard in Red with Black Stripes Relic Finish

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 EVH Striped Series Frankenstein 'Frankie.'

Sporting Eddie's famed red with white-and-black-striped paint job and a worn-in reliced look, 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.

Bolt-on quartersawn maple neck with Eddie Van Halen's modified 'C' backshape
Bolt-on is a type of neck construction that joins the maple neck to the body of the guitar with screws or bolts, resulting in bright tone with more control. The quartersawn grain runs the length of the neck and as well as being visually appealing, is less susceptible to shrinking, warping or splitting. Graphite-reinforcement rods flank the truss rod for even more increased neck stability, while your fretting hand will feel right at home on the modified 'C'-shape neck, which has a .790" thickness at the 3rd fret and .825" at the 12th fret.

12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard
The innovative 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard design gradually flattens toward the heel from its smaller and more rounded profile at the nut for unparalleled comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and seamless bending near the heel. Maple is a dense wood that produces bright, snappy tones, articulate notes with bite and a tight low end.

Eddie's famed Frankenstein pickup mods
To throw imitators off his scent, Eddie faked people out by hacking into his original Frankenstein guitar and screwing a three-way switch sideways into the middle position and housing a non-functional single coil pickup in the neck position. The Frankie guitar follows suit, featuring an EVH Wolfgang humbucking bridge pickup with a dummy Strat neck pickup and a dummy five-way blade housed in the middle position. The direct mount EVH Wolfgang bridge humbucker with Alnico 2 magnets is hotter and delivers rich harmonics, cutting highs and snarling mids.

Unique cosmetics and appointments
Other standout appointments of this fan favorite include a reliced red with white-and-black-striped paint job, reliced hardware, custom black pickguard, top-mount Strat-style output jack and white skirted Strat-style single volume control knob labeled 'tone.'

EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem, R3 locking nut and EVH D-Tuna
Eddie Van Halen was the first player to popularize the innovative Floyd Rose locking tremolo, even advising Floyd Rose on his early designs to integrate round disc finger-type tuners that you would see on a cello or violin. Now universally embraced, the EVH-branded Floyd Rose bridge features the EVH logo stamped on the bridge plate, steel saddles and a solid brass block. The Floyd Rose bridge and R3 (43 mm) locking nut is a professional-grade double-locking design that secures the strings in the saddle and nut, providing ultimate tuning stability and dynamic tremolo action. Standard equipment on Eddie's personal guitars since the early 90s, the EVH D-Tuna is a unique patented device that enables players to drop the E to D and back in an instant.

EVH ELECTRIC GUITARS AND BASSES 2-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY

Fender warrants this EVH brand electric guitar or bass to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for two (2) years from the date of original purchase, subject to the limitations set forth herein ("Limited Warranty"). This Limited Warranty applies only to the original retail purchaser when this instrument is purchased from an Authorized EVH Dealer and is subject to the limitations set forth herein. IMPORTANT: PLEASE RETAIN YOUR ORIGINAL SALES RECEIPT, AS IT IS YOUR PROOF OF PURCHASE VALIDATING THIS LIMITED WARRANTY.

FMIC has established a network of independent Authorized EVH Service Centers for warranty service. The EVH Dealer from whom you purchased your electric guitar or bass may also be authorized for warranty service and should be the first point of contact when service of any kind is required for your EVH electric guitar or bass. To receive warranty service, return the complete instrument to an Authorized EVH Service Center, with your sales receipt as proof of purchase, during the applicable Limited Warranty period. To the extent feasible, defective components that qualify for coverage under this Limited Warranty will be repaired or replaced (at Fender's discretion) without charge. If the qualified component is not repaired, Fender may, at its sole discretion, either replace with a comparable product or refund the purchase price. Remedies beyond normal service repair of any EVH instrument require both an evaluation and confirmation of the defect and a direct recommendation to Fender from an Authorized EVH Service Center for alternative considerations.

All transportation, insurance and freight charges associated with warranty service and repairs on EVH electric guitars or basses are the responsibility of the purchaser, as is any service initiated for the purpose of customizing setups or adjustments beyond factory specifications.

  1. Fret wear, saddle wear, nut wear, strings and batteries.
  2. Checking, shrinking, sinking, discoloration and wear of lacquer finishes.

  5. Damage, corrosion or rusting of any hardware components caused by humidity, salty air, or exposure to the moisture, body salts and acids of perspiration.
  6. Any damage to an instrument resulting from customization or modification.
  7. Normal wear and tear on any part of the instrument, case or gig bag including jacks, controls, switches, plated surfaces, tuning machines, pickguards, zippers, clasps, handles, latches, case hardware etc.
  8. All other damage and deterioration due to normal usage, wear and tear, aging, accidents, neglect, abuse, or Acts of Nature.
  9. Any instrument, whose serial number is missing, altered or tampered with in any fashion.
