      EVH

      Wound to Eddie Van Halen's original specs, it installs in any humbucker-equipped guitar.

      Think of this pickup as a brand-new version of the original Frankenstein's battle-worn guitar pickup, wound to the exact original specs and built to fit in any humbucking-pickup-equipped guitar. One of the most famous humbuckers of all time is now available at a competitive price and serves as a great upgrade and alternative to the popular crop of cliché replacement humbuckers.

              EVH Frankenstine pickup sounds awsome great pickup. I played the pickup last night and woke up and had little frankenstine barbs coming out of my neck this morning.

              Loud yet with no feeback

                  Comments about EVH Frankenstein Humbucker:

                  This pick up sounds incredible. The fact that it goes from clean at low volume to high gain sound with a twist of the volume is mind blowing...

                  It has virtually no unwanted feeback at all when it's cranked. This is very surprising when you hear how loud it sounds.

                  I tried this pick up using my Wampler Pinnacle fully expecting the EVH tone. I was surprised that this pick up didn't sound as good as the stock 490 in my Gibson using that pedal. The gain from the pedal and the gain from the pick up was to thin sounding.... EVH pick up sounded better without the Wampler.

                  Surprising though my very affordable Boss SD-1 sounds much better using the EVH Frankenstein pick-up verse the Wampler Pinnacle. The Boss is low gain clipping and works better giving this just enough of a boost.

                  Maybe Wampler pedals don't work well using a high out put expensive pick-ups like the EVH Frankenstein.

                  I found out tonight after trying it the Pinnacle actually sounds better using a medium gain pick up in my Gibson. Pinnacle pedal has tons of gain maybe not suited for this kind of pick up.

                  The EVH pick up sounds incredible all by itself but with a little push from a SD-1 overdrive pedal nothing boutique needed and the tone in this thing is amazing, it sounds great.

                  If your looking for something that will sound hot yet with very controllable volume when it comes to no feedback, this is the one. You won't need a bunch of over priced pedals to help it out either because in this case less is more.

                  I own and used the Wolfgang pick-ups. To me they sound the same as the 490 pick ups in my Gibson.
                  Kind of medium gain tone perfect for using the Pinnacle pedal.

                    I put this in my SG Classic in the bridge. So I went from a P-90 to the EVH. Wow. I love this pickup. Cleans up nice and it really screams. I've had the Pearly Gates, Screaming Deamon, EMG's, JB, and a bunch more I cant ever remember. This is the one. Now for the neck PU... What to do....??

                    This pup is amazing. Plain and simple. I upgraded a Charvel San Dimas Pro mod from a JB-4 to this and there is simply no comparison. Although the JB is a high quality pickup, it doesnt have the "IT" factor that this does. This and a 5150, you'll have the brown sound. Dont question yourself, just buy it.

                          I just installed this in a custom Les paul jr I built, and man does this pickup put the rest to shame. On heavy distortion you can still hear some clearnity in the notes. And on clean its not to bright but also has some balls to it. The volume controle is like just ideal, smooth and gradual. the installation was easy too. I look forward to putting this in every guitar. However I do wonder how well it would function being coil split with other pickups.

                          This is easily one of the best pickups ever conceived...it perfectly nails the elusive brown sound that several generations have been chasing. My guitar tech was completely stunned at how well this pickup actually sounded, despite him initially knocking it due to the price. Now that he realizes how wrong he was, he has ordered 3 to replace the pickups in some of his guitars. I highly recommend this pickup to anyone who wants not only the evh sound, but also an all-around amazing pickup that can be used for near anything.

                          Stop looking for that brown sound and buy this one already. I plugged in, left all the amp settings on 5 (exept gain), played the opening chords of "everybody wants some" and "unchained" and it sounded perfect. No matter what amp I plug into, the perfect brown sound punches right through with no effort. For years I've been looking for the brown sound and this emulates it exactly as I always wanted. However, it can also deliver a great metal sound (jake e lee or zakk) Also, when on a clean channel, it sounds bright and clear with good harmonic response, but most importantly, well balanced. I am exceptionally happy with this pickup.

                          This Is the Pickup You Have been looking for. I've have been playing for 30+ and I have tried every pickup out there and like I said this is the one. I was skeptical when I ordered it but Edwards got some secret knowledge that no one else has. You won't be disappointed. If the sound is what you've been chasing than you have found it. I will be ordering more for sure.
