    Man, jealous.

    I'm excited because I have a new bass pedal coming.

    Ok, I bought the guitar from Sweetwater and Iíve had it about a week. Of course itís amazing! It is very lightweight, the neck is unfinished and smooth, but could benefit from a rub of oil. The matte finish is very nice. The pickup sounds great and cleans up pretty good when you roll off the volume. The trem is nice and smooth, not stiff and the D-Tuna works great. It was set up right put out of the box. It only need minor tuning adjustment. Sweetwater did a good job with their inspection. No fret issues or anything being loose. It's taking me some adjustment getting used to the squared off neck joints on the body. All of my other guitars have the rounded neck joints for smooth access to the upper frets. I havenít decided if Iím going to add eye bolts or not. Overall a very nice guitar that is fun to play!

    Oh man, that looks gorgeous! Excellent work.
    Just curious as to what four pickups you went with?

    Outstanding looking purple quilt!

    Yaminub, that looks fantastic. Been looking forward to seeing the final thing ever since you posted pics of the raw body several months ago. You need to make a special thread for it whenever it arrives.

    Those of you who have played, or own, both the EVH 5150 and the earlier round of EVH Striped Series (B/W, R/B/W, B/Y, Circles) Guitars, how would you rate the 5150 against those earlier models? Thanks!

    This is nothing short of outstanding!!! So very cool! I look forward to seeing more pics and hopefully hearing it.

    Now, please pardon my ignorance, I realize this guitar was used for Spanked, and Eddie played the top half for the song, and bottom guitar for leads. What IS the top guitar? Baritone? What's it tuned to? I always thought the top was a bass, and thought Eddie played the main bass lines for the song (and never really knew what part Mike played) but I can clearly see those are not bass strings on the top.

    Anyway, this is f'n awesome!!

    I could be wrong, but always thought it was a six string baritone. Look at the differences in the placements of the two bridges, with obviously different scale lengthes between the two necks.

    Good to see you around here again!

    Here it is. Just a few tweaks after shipping and it's great. I'm just learning how to tame it now...


    To be more accurate, it's pretty much a Bass VI on the top, not exactly a baritone. It's a bass with six strings. I probably will go to thicker Bass VI strings soon though (currently has baritone strings), I'm thinking about it.
