EVH Striped Series '78 Eruption MN White with Black Stripes Relic

On the cover of Van Halen’s 1978 eponymous debut album, Eddie Van Halen thrusts his black-and-white striped Strat-style guitar towards the camera as if he’s showing you the future. He played this guitar on his unprecedented and mind-blowing “Eruption” guitar solo, thus its nickname, and almost immediately, this monumental instrument became a timeless icon, symbolic of a paradigm shift in guitar-driven rock and roll.

22-year-old Van Halen actually made the original Eruption himself - not only was he an incredible musician, but also an innovative inventor/tinkerer. Always messing with his gear, in order to allow it to reach its full potential, the Eruption started as an off-the-shelf guitar, but was heavily modified - the neck was refretted, a humbucker was installed and potted in paraffin wax, the controls were changed to a a single master volume knob (famously labelled as “Tone”), a brass nut and tailpiece from a ’58 Strat was added, a homemade black pickguard was cut out and mounted, and of course, the iconic striped motif was applied. The EVH Striped Series '78 Eruption Relic MN, finished in White with Black Stripes, combines many of those famed mods along with modernized features and a relic treatment.

The Stratocaster-style body sports Eddie’s famed white-and-black-striped paint job and has been paired to a quartersawn maple neck with a hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish. The 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets was designed for fast and furious playing styles with maximum comfort, while a heel-mount truss rod wheel makes for time-saving neck adjustments. A single EVH Wolfgang humbucking bridge pickup provides classic Eddie Van Halen guitar tone – from crystal cleans to fat and rich mids and lows, while the brass nut and six-saddle vintage Fender Stratocaster synchronized tremolo bridge with a 43mm brass block allow for authentic EVH tone. Other features include a skirted white Strat-style volume control knob (labelled “tone”) with 500K EVH Bourns low friction pot and treble bleed circuit, black pickguard, chrome hardware, oversized strap buttons, EVH neck plate and larger, ‘70s-style licensed Fender Strat headstock with gold EVH logo.

At Riffs & Licks Music, we think the EVH Striped Series '78 Eruption Relic MN, in White with Black Stripes, is perfect for Van Halen fans, as well as anyone who loves hot-rodded Strats.
