High-performance EVH Electric Guitar
Designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen, the EVH 5150 QM is a high-performance electric guitar. Its basswood body yields a growling, mid-forward tone, while its stunning quilted maple top lends additional bite to your playing. EVH Wolfgang humbuckers complement this guitar's tonewoods well and offer plenty of amp-punishing output. Enjoy rock-solid stability, thanks to a graphite-reinforced, quartersawn maple neck, while a compound-radius fingerboard enables exceptional speed and comfort. An EVH-branded Floyd Rose tremolo allows for reckless twisting, bending, and dive-bombing, while a D-Tuna gives you instant Drop D tuning. The EVH 5150 QM boasts a convenient neck-heel truss rod adjustment thumbwheel and an eye-catching transparent gloss finish.
Quartersawn neck for stability and playability:
The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why the 5150 QM features a graphite-reinforced, quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is significantly more stable than plain-sawn necks and less likely to warp, twist, or shrink. Beyond that, this guitar’s compound-radius fretboard goes from 12" at the nut to a comfortable and flat 16" radius on the upper frets, ensuring easy chording down low and lightning-fast playability up high. The guitarists here at Sweetwater are impressed by the incredible, unfettered playability supplied by the 5150 QM.
Wolfgang humbuckers yield classic EVH tone:
The 5150 QM comes outfitted with EVH Wolfgang humbuckers. Superhuman chops aside, Eddie forged his unmistakable sound through incessant tinkering with guitar parts and pickups. To achieve his signature tone, Eddie paid particular attention to different pickup windings. The 5150 QM’s pickups are the culmination of his experimentation. They nail Eddie's classic lead tone with muscular lows, singing highs, and snarling mids — all the essential elements of EVH’s elusive brown sound.
Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and huge dive-bombs:
The 5150 QM boasts an EVH-branded Floyd Rose tremolo. First gaining popularity in the 1980s, the Floyd Rose’s locking design keeps your guitar in tune, even if you like to perform extreme pitch pyrotechnics. You can force the whammy bar all the way down to the guitar's body for psychotic dive-bombing. No matter how hard you're shredding, you'll maintain your tuning stability, thanks to the Floyd Rose tremolo's locking design. On top of that, you can easily switch to Drop D tuning, courtesy of the 5150 QM’s D-Tuna.
