With the 5150, a model was created under Fender's patronage that is reminiscent of the early so-called "Superstrats" of the late seventies. The Floyd Rose tremolo is not yet undercut and can even be adjusted lying down, just as the master himself liked to play it. Of course, the D-Tuna should not be missing, with which the low E-string can be tuned down a whole tone in the twinkling of an eye. The body is Strat-like with generous shapings, especially on the top, belly-friendly, so to speak.
The pickups are the same tried and tested humbuckers that have been used on other EVH guitars. And of course, the "Kill Switch" is not to be missed, an interrupter button with which an effect can be achieved that was already heard in "You really got me" on the masterpiece "Van Halen I" from 1978.
The guitar is perfectly balanced and, thanks to the slim neck, can be played excellently in all positions. The quality standard can be rated as high and is comparable to other Mexicans of the mother company.
