    Default EVH Gear latest stripe series accuracy question

    With the amazing attention to detail of all your replicas, has anyone done an analysis on the all of the “replicas” striped series released by EVH Gear? The paint jobs are fairly easy to compare, but what about the body shapes and neck profiles? I know the 5150 head is a little off (I guess because of copy write issues?) But what about the Circles and Stripes? Is the body just an earlier model Fender used or is it fairly true to the source? The same about the new Frankensteins? Those look pretty close (to me, anyway). Just curious if anyone has delved into the accuracies.

    All of the standard S-types produced by EVH Gear have the same body shape outside of pickup and/or control route variations. The original guitars were all slightly different. The horns and forearm contour of the Frankenstein are different, Circles had a thicker body, etc.

    I think of the EVH Gear striped models as tributes rather than replicas. They’re cool guitars that so a good job approximating they looks, but they’re not true replicas. The differences in specs (body wood, pickups, neck specs) striping technique and finish separate them from replicas.

    In many ways the originals are totally different...these EVH guitars are basically the same guitar w different paint jobs

    The Evh striped series guitars are tributes to the originals.....they are not exact copies! They are made this way in purpose.
