Eddie Van Halen Striped Circle Series guitars Posted on Friday, August 8th, 2014 at 2:01 pm. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple I’d love to have one of the EVH guitars. Not a bad price. richardmac The neck is interesting – it’s Strat length, but has a radius more similar to a Les Paul than a Strat. Compound radius is a great design, making it easy to play chords on the low frets and play fast runs on the high frets. It’s a one trick pony though, isn’t it? A Strat or a Les Paul can get a multitude of tones this guitar can’t. But I guess if you only play one style you only need one sound. Unless you can afford multiple guitars, which is the best of both worlds. I wouldn’t buy one of these but I’d enjoy owning one.
