    Default Meanstreet Guitars

    MeanStreet Guitars no longer doing EVH guitars. Says there is no lawyers involved, but he has not one picture of a Van Halen product on his site. Kind of strange huh?

    Ok, site came up. No idea what you're talking about. The Unchained, Evolution, Exile, Intruder, etc., all seem to still be listed.

    He just won't stripe them, he's still selling all his models. Can't say I blame him for burning out on striping guitars. Yeah not sure what you mean.

    That I don't blame him for at all. I'm surprised nobody ever said anything to him about that. But it is a lot of work and people are very demanding...

    I almost ordered a 5150 from him during last year, but the waiting time was too long for me. But I can say he was very pleasant, answered my questions, and there was no pressure to buy anything. 'Amazed at the quality!

    Now again at the end of the year he will be done building striped guitars. I have had 2 5150's They are nice but I think for 1895.00 for the top of the line model it would actually look more like Ed's. Just saying, I mean the guitar is smooth all around, and not really reliced like the ones that get built on here for a lot less money. It's like 3500.00 for a fully loaded Franky. To me way to high for what you get.

    I know what you mean Meanstreet..... thats a ton of cash for something we can all do ourselvels for less cash..... I remember back in 96 when I started painting EVH guitars, I bought my first one and was like..... hey I can do this for so much less and have as much fun doing it as Ed did back in the day.... never looked back.

    glad to see him up and running again though

    Yeah it is nice. But I am in the process of starting my own now. Chris Locke 5150 body, Musikraft 1 piece Banana neck. Gonna have EVH NYC paint the body, and then gonna assemble it all myself. Don't know how to intonate a Floyd Rose though. But hey we gotta learn somehow

    I bought a Wolfgang (exile) body from him a few years ago.
    It's the black quilt top- VERY nice- but he must of tried putting a yellow dye on before the top clear coat to make it looked aged and the end result is that it's developed humidity blisters and with time the quilt has stood out less and less.
    I also bought some of his pickups for it and was amazed how good they sounded!
    I'm actually considering repainting it gloss black due to the paint problem though.
    I've got a look-a-like wolf neck on it at the moment but want to get a better fitting one- does anyone make wolf necks?
    I've found some real ones on ebay but for what they're worth, I may as well save a bit more and buy a complete guitar!
    I used to be 'sean112' but lost all my details!
