Welcome to the Mean Street
Guitars Custom Shop
~Specializing in EVH style
My goal: To build you the best
custom guitar I possibly can. When it's said and done, I want the
guitar you bought from me to increase in value over the
Most custom order guitar builds
include bodies and necks from Musikraft & South East Guitars
I also use Warmoth, Mighty Mite
and other quality parts from various other companies located in the
(The wait time as of today is
around 4 to 6 months, this is only an
(Deposits for custom ordered
guitars are non-refundable)
I use only professional high-quality urethane
paints such as House of Kolor & PPG for all custom painting,
clear coating & airbrushing. All finishes are clear coated &
buffed to a high gloss & matte (non-gloss) clears are also
available. Custom graphics are signed & dated under the
"Sand-Out" Clear Coat
This is a non-reflective clear coat that is the same
as the gloss coat as far as protection but there is no reflection,
no worries about fingerprints and even scratches can be removed in

Intruder & Exile models
Here's the deal with the Exile and Intruder models...I had these
made by a company in California...approximately 25 of each color.
Some of them need final clearing but the tops are already dyed.
Some of the colors I'm out of and don't offer anymore. Once these
are sold out, I don't plan on stocking these models anymore
because of the "Made in Japan" EVH Wolfgang models and
other models out in the market. I can have custom orders made of
the same models by one of my builders, but the time it takes
to build, add the quilt top, then dye and clear them, it becomes
cheaper to buy the MIJ EVH Wolfgang, etc.. I also use these same
models if any customer wants a non-quilted paint job. It's cost
effective this way for me and especially the customer. So for
instance, if you want an Exile or Intruder model, and say you want
to change the position of the switch, volume knob, etc. this is
available as a fully "custom order" and is more
expensive than the stock models that I offer.
Unchained & 78 models
I do not offer the Unchained or 78 models in a
I did offer this when I first started selling this
style of guitar back in 1999-2002.
Want a custom paint job that will blow your mind? Holoflash!
Holoflash is one of the most brilliant finishes ever! Light reflecting from its surface covers every possible color in the rainbow. To really appreciate the brilliance and visual effect of the Holoflash finish, you must see it in person. I have included several pictures of
guitars that I've painted with the Holoflash finish in the Mean
Gallery so you can begin to understand the color change that occurs with just the slightest movement or change in lighting...it is amazing! It was first made famous by "THE" Kramer Guitar company back in the day. Now it's available again here at Mean Street Guitars...As you can see from the pictures
in the Gallery, I have taken it to another level. These are just a few examples of what I can do for your guitar. You can come up with your own design and I'll duplicate it for you. Also
available in Chrome, Gold, Copper, Blue & Red just to name a few and you can also order just about any color you
want as I can usually mix in some wild stuff...like the Black Fusion
shown on the Unchained page.
Pearls effect is another option and each color is totally
different. Artwork is signed & dated.
Remember, no two finishes are alike.
