Eddie Van Halen's 35 years of experience and knowledge are brilliantly reflected in the EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody electric guitar. Direct-mounted EVH Wolfgang humbuckers yield tremendous girth and bite, in addition to incredible resonance and sustain. This guitar's graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck was carved and rolled to Eddie's exacting standards, creating insane levels of playability. You'll be amazed at how quickly this guitar's D-Tuna shifts it to Drop D tuning and back. The EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody electric guitar reflects a commitment to quality worthy of the extraordinary guitarist it's named after.

    A rock machine that's built for serious fretwork

    At Music Experience, we've been consistently impressed by EVH guitars, and the Wolfgang Special is no exception. From its basswood body to its maple neck and ebony fingerboard, this guitar just screams quality - and that's just the tonewoods! This gorgeous guitar is made for serious playing, with a compound-radius fingerboard, an EVH Floyd Rose bridge and locking nut, and direct-mounted EVH humbuckers. The controls are top-notch too: you get a handy 3-way pickup selector switch and low-friction volume and tone pots for total control over your tone and volume. All the components come together to make a guitar that looks absolutely stunning and plays even better.

    Quartersawn neck for stability and playability

    The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this EVH Wolfgang Special features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is significantly more stable than plain-sawn necks and less likely to warp, twist, or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the compound-radius fretboard on this Wolfgang Special. The fretboard radius goes from 12" at the nut to a comfortable and flat 16" radius on the upper frets.

    Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and huge dive-bombs

    First gaining popularity in the 1980s, the Floyd Rose tremolo's locking design keeps your guitar in tune, even if you like to perform extreme pitch pyrotechnics. You can force the whammy bar all the way down to the guitar's body for psychotic dive-bombing. Best of all, no matter how hard you're shredding, you'll maintain your tuning stability, thanks to the Floyd Rose tremolo's locking design. On top of that, you can easily switch to Drop D tuning, courtesy of the Wolfgang Special's D-Tuna tremolo device!

    What EVH Says...

    With classic red, black and white striped style that pays homage to Van Halen’s original guitar, giant sound and high-speed playability along with player-oriented features, this latest take on the Wolfgang Special is ready to crank out some serious rock.

    Features an arched top basswood body with a robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications. The speedy 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard facilitates energetic riffing and blazing leads, and is the only Wolfgang Special finish to feature an ebony fingerboard besides the Stealth model. Also new for a Wolfgang Special model is its chrome hardware and non-matching black headstock, while other familiar traits include 22 jumbo frets and heel-mounted spoke wheel for easy truss rod adjustment. The crystal clear Custom Designed EVH Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are direct mounted, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. Every component of the guitar has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing.

    The low-friction volume knob lets you perform speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts as your picking hand flies furiously across the strings. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Locking Trem combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane your whammy-bar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna® retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger, making this the only guitar you’ll need onstage.
