EVH Frankie (SOLD)

Our price:

The EVH Frankie: the ultimate Eddie Van Halen guitar with the go-faster stripes and the go-faster neck

This EVH Frankie is not an exact replica or a tribute (because the Frankie is a production model built by a specialized team), but you will still be completely floored by its staggering attention to detail, worn-in feel, fast playability and out-of-the-box EVH tone. Eddie might not have been the first, but no one before Eddie monopolized the fretboard better in ringing out harmonics and tapping, diving a tremolo and playing as fast and as furiously as he did.

IMHO no other guitar I’ve come across can exploit and enhance those techniques more fluently than the EVH Frankie. For starters, the oiled finish neck is spectacular, and you may never return to a glossy or satin-finished neck after playing the Frankie. Its natural wood-feel encourages endless wanderlust as you glide across the neck and fretboard, and the comfortably slim neck carve emboldens wide interval finger stretches (in order to nail the Ice Cream Man solo).
