At last EVH have launched the EVH Stripe Series Circles Guitar and it was certainly worth the wait!!
If you, like me, are an Eddie Van Halen fan then you will have been pleased to hear that the great man has announced the latest addition to the Stripes series is the EVH Stripe Series Circles Guitar. Now Eddie Van Halen has been through a lot of guitars in his time but this is probably the guitar, played by Eddie Van Halen in his early years, which has been most requested by guitarists to be copied. The circles guitar was used by Eddie in the early 80s and can be seen on the 1981 Unchained music video. Never quite as famous as the Frankenstrat it is not to say that the Circles guitar has got quite a cult following hence the reason that it has been released.
So what can you expect from the EVH Stripe Series Circles Guitar.
First up there is the absolutely unmistakable strat style body with the distinctive paint finish. With what EVH describe as an “otherworldly” black and white “crop circles” graphic gloss finish the guitar is certainly eye catching. The EVH stripe series circles guitar is cut from basswood and has a maple neck with slick oiled finish. The neck has 22 jumbo frets and a modern fast and smooth compound radius, this is, as you would expect from an Eddie Van Halen guitar, an amazing neck to play.
The electronics are simple but don’t worry there is enough tone and power to satisfy anyone. The guitar has a single EVH designed Wolfgang Humbucker and there is a single master volume dial.
In terms of hardware the EVH Circles guitar fairly minimalist as it is armed with a EVH branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo with an EVH D-Tuna. This is a great system on the tremolo which allows the player to drop tune the low E to a D and back again in an instant.
So if you have loved this guitar since the early 80s and want to get your hands on one then check out the details of the guitar on the EVH website .
