    I know this topic has probably been brought up before but...... has anyone here ever striped there 5150 halfstacks like Eddies were on the F.U.C.K. tour? I saw the rows of 5150 IIs on Peaveys website, but I have never seen anyone else attempt at striping! I kind of figured someone like Rols has done it?

    Anyone have some cool pics to post of there striped 5150 Amps?

    I am thinking about stripping my 5150 head. If it looks awesome then I will stripe my 5150 II!

    Don't strip it!!!!

    Develop your own identity...the one thing everybody should learn about Eddie is not to religiously follow another Musician.

    Be yourself, believe it yourself, develop yourself, the sooner you stop whorshipped EVH, the sooner you can become the best musician you can

    Man, that is an awesome pic!

    Does anyone have any addvice on how to paint it correctly? I want the paint to stay and not get rubbed off easily!

    As far as creating my own identity, I really don't care! I have a bunch of other gear that is my own sound! I have finally found time to work on my EVH rig. It has always been a passion of mine to recreate Eddies tone larger that than life! I do a little each year on the side!

    I'm not positive, but I think Rol did this. He would be able to give you some tips. As I recall though he now regrets doing this to his amp.

    I did it soley for having a striped amp as a backdrop for my guitar collection and what little advertizing I did, I wouldn't do it again I have the one head and 2 cabs done and that's it, just recently the head took a dump and I felt stupid taking it to the shop to have it serviced I would recommend not doing it.
    also the ones Ed has are just as sloppy as his guitars and the ones in the picture if you get close enough you can see the lines are on the fuzzy side and there is a little overrun here and there no where near sloppy but not as crisp as the picture shows either.
    BTW those arn't done professionally they are like Eds guitars but

    Looks cool though! LOL I was just curious. The reason why I got the idea was because a dude over at the Plexi Palace boards showed a pic of a Marshall cab that he had painted dark blue. Looked almost pro done!!!! Of course, the color looked like crap! LOL

    No hassle man, just recalled Rol being a little disgruntled(lack of better term), about it. He says it was just for his background pic, but I think secretly it completed his Eddie VH, obsession...
    I think he's also getting at that it is really hard to make it look really good too. The rough texture would be hard to get good, clean color breaks on.

    I think it would look really awesome if I found someone here where I live that could paint a 5150 4x12! Just to see what it looked like striped. If it looked killer I would have the other cab painted and then both of my 5150 heads! That would complete part of my obsession! LOL Of course, I would have to buy a Greg Rogers Kramer kit and then have it painted up!

    A lot better than the Red/White/Black IMO.

    I did my little 30 Watt Marshall Black/White and it looks pretty cool.

    There's no way in hell I'd ever do it to my stage amp, though. 1) I no longer play 5150's and it would make a Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier look like shit and 2) I'm not EVH.

    Just my opinion.

    Default

    I did the EVH red/white/black stripes on my 9V powered Mini-Marshall, ditched the Marshall badge and put on a small 5150 badge that I had laying around. Turned out pretty nicely!

    I think about doing EVH paint on my Peavey Classic Chorus 212 every once in awhile, but I keep it out in the living room and frankly it would clash with the vintage 40's furniture I've got that room decked out in. With its stock paint it hides nicely under the bar counter overhang without standing out.


    Mentioned this in another thread, but I've been thinking of painting my next race car in EVH stripes. I figure, the outside of the car gets nearly covered in stickers anyway, so why not have a busy background to begin with.
