EVH® UNCHAINS LONG-AWAITED STRIPE SERIES “CIRCLES” GUITAR

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.  (August 5, 2014) – EVH is proud to announce 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.

With an otherworldly black-and-white “circles” graphic gloss finish, the EVH Circles model is without question one of the most distinctively eye-catching guitars in the Stripe Series lineup. There’s nothing alien about the rest of this high performance tone machine, though, 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® with D-Tuna® bridge and locking nut, and EVH tuners.
