Funky, shreddable, and wild. A vintage Strat from circa 1973 with all of the appropriate EVH approved mods such as a tape paint job and a humbucker added to the bridge position. The original Floyd Rose and deluxe size headstock add to the endless amount of mojo this awesome and absurd instrument already weilds. If you’re the kind of player who’s been feeling unchained to the stereotypical Strat, snag this guitar to Dance the Night Away.
