Eddie Van Halen launches new EVH Stripe Series Circles guitar

Eddie Van Halen has launched a new edition to his EVH Stripe Series line of guitars.

The new "Circles" guitar features a black-and-white “crop circles” graphic gloss finish with its sleek Strat-like basswood body, rock-solid quartersawn maple neck with oiled finish, fast and smooth compound-radius maple fingerboard (12”-16”) with comfortably rolled edges and 22 jumbo frets, a single ferocious EVH direct-mount pickup with single black plastic control knob (master volume), EVH Floyd Rose bridge and locking nut, and EVH tuners.

Many fans will recognize the look of the Circles guitar from the live video for “Unchained”, filmed in Oakland, California in 1981 on the Fair Warning tour.

The EVH Stripe Series Circles guitar has a MSRP of $1,199.
