Though a half stack is sometimes necessary, it's overkill for the venues where most guitarists play ninety percent or more of their gigs. Most combos are too expensive or powerful, but with the new EVH 5150III 1x12 50-watt combo, EVH has designed a compact, portable combo that doesn't sacrifice the sound and versatility of the 5150III heads that Eddie Van Halen uses on stage and in the studio.
The EVH Wolfgang USA guitar designed and played by Eddie Van Halen is one hell of a fine instrument, but not everyone can afford its $4,000-plus sticker price. Fortunately, EVH recently introduced its most affordable version of the Wolfgang guitar yet—the EVH Wolfgang WG Standard.

After nearly three years in development, EVH is pleased to announce the launch of the 5150III 1x12 50-watt combo amplifier. This is not your average 1x12 combo by any stretch. In line with Eddie Van Halen’s legacy, this 1x12 is a true game changer, making players swear they’re standing in front of a half-stack.
Luckily, musicians in search of quality signature gear — from guitars to amps to effects to pickups — don't have to worry about that nonsense. Generally, gear manufacturers work closely with their signature artists, in some cases, right down to the tiniest of details (Some artists repeatedly send back the prototypes until they're perfect).
EVH has announced the release of one of the most requested guitars Eddie Van Halen has played over the years, the EVH Stripe Series “Circles” guitar made famous by Van Halen’s 1981 “Unchained” music video.
The EVH Wolfgang guitar is the only way to go if you want what Eddie Van Halen plays today.
Based on Van Halen’s legendary Frankenstein guitar, the EVH Striped Series is a stripped-down speed machine with a single humbucker and volume control, plus Van Halen’s trademark striped finish in three different motifs—black and white, yellow and black, and red, black and white.
