    Finally!

    Thanks man! We can put it to bed now. Many color options, not just a single Red version. That's what I was hoping someone would find, since I couldn't find that out for myself.

    The quilt top ebony board 5150s are gorgeous. The flat color ones are not.

    They're also releasing one of the Ash bodied Wolfgangs from pre Winter NAMM

    I love the red 5150 series. Those guitars look so much cooler than Wolfgangs.

    The quilt top 5150s look very much like Charvels, minus the headstock. Very curious how these sell compared to the other lines. The first non-strictly EVH offerings for EVH gear.

    Looking at the 5150s again - no contoured heel is a bummer.

    I just noticed that too. That is a bummer. I'm guessing they will sell for $899 or $999 on Sweetwater.

    Bingo. List price for the 5150 Deluxe is the same as the Wolfgang Specials that retail for $999. I'd guess the 5150 Standard will be $899.

    1st reaction. I don't know if I like them as much as I thought I would. Something about the matching headstock colors, and maybe the shape. I think they would look better natural, Idk. I have no need for any more guitars, but good to see EVH branching out beyond Wolfs, and Stripes...

    Thanks for digging up the pics!

    Yeah, the information I had was fairly incomplete, as I tried to make very clear in my post. I spoke to my friend recently and asked him if there was going to be multiple colors or just Red, and he stated just Red. Now, I don't know if that means that's all he's seen, or if that's all they're making.

    I get it. There are so many people on the board who have started rumors about reunions over the years that it's easy to make sport of my speculation. That's ok. I understand it. However, I've tried to be careful not to make outrageous claims or pretend I know things that I really don't know. I've tried to qualify everything I've said with disclaimers so as not to mislead anyone. I was hoping that there was another dealer or someone with access to inside information that would have more detailed facts than I do that would spill the beans on what's going on.

    Also, it's important to remember the context of my original post. What I knew at the time was that Sammy had announced that he was no longer going to tour after this year. There was buzz about a Mikey/VH reunion on tour this year. Dave had been talking about something coming up with the band, and the word was that it was going to involve a Stadium tour. Considering all of those rumors, when I had a pretty solid source telling me that there was going to be a solid red Kramer style guitar released under the EVH banner that is most identifiable with Sammy, it led me to speculate that it could mean something.

    My line of logic was simply: They are all getting older. Van Halen tours very rarely. They were talking about a Stadium tour, which seemed ambitious considering how their last tour went. Mikey was being discussed. Sammy is done touring after this year. When I put all those things together with the information I came across, a reunion tour with both singers seemed like one possible explanation.

    I would be the first to tell you, don't believe anything you hear about Van Halen until it happens. I would also say that you can't really believe anything couldn't happen with them. There was a time when nobody ever thought it was possible for Dave and Eddie to work together, or Sammy and Dave to coexist on a tour together, and those things happened.

    I'm not saying, or even holding out hope that a reunion of this type will happen. I'm simply saying that given the information available at the time, it seemed like it could be possible.
    With all due respect, here is your post:

    Warning. This is pure speculation based on something Iíve become aware of, and I have no inside information to back this up. Unfortunately, I canít say specifically what that is until after July first, but Iíll try to beat around the edges of it as much as I can.

    I became aware that Eddie is going to pay tribute to Sammy Hagar in a very public and official way, without saying it.. Those who see it will know it when they do. Thatís all I can really say until Iím cleared to say more.

    That led me to speculate just why he would do that. The only thing that made any sense was that Sammy would be joining them for a final tour, and that we could possibly get a Sam/Dave reunion tour that included Michael Anthony.

    I know there has already been speculation on this happening, but when I found out about what EVH is going to do this summer, there would be no other reason to do it unless Sammy was a part of something.

    Sorry this is so cryptic. I know it sounds like all the other bullshit posts speculating about the band, but when you actually see what Iím talking about, and the amount of money, and time it would take for Eddie to do it, there has to be some kind of commitment to Sammy.

    The information Iím talking about is available to other people, but they are not supposed to officially talk about it until July, and even then, they would have to actually look at it and put it together.


    It turns out that none of this was remotely true. The guitars aren't just red, they have a pickup in the neck position, and there is no "paying tribute" to Sammy in any way. They're trying to sell guitars that they couldn't offload as striped 5150 Kramers so they put in another pickup and added some additional colors.

    From my POV your OP comes off a lot more than just mild speculation. Maybe it wasn't intended that way but wording matters.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Ok, that's fair. I may have been overly excited about some information that I had been given that wasn't complete. Yes, if you read that one post, it is a poor representation. However, if you were to continue to read all the other posts that I made to clarify that one, I was a little more measured.

    Please keep in mind that I couldn't come out and say, "Hey guys, my music dealer friend told me that EVH is coming out with a Solid Red Kramer type guitar" at that time. I wish I could have. At that time, I was only told that much, and was asked not to say anything about specifics. In my defense, based on the bad information I was given regarding what was coming out, and my inability to mention specifics, it was the best I could come up with'
