A fantastic player's guitar engineered by one of rock's greatest innovators.
Years in the making from Eddie Van Halen guitars, the EVH Wolfgang Special features a flat AA maple top with 5-piece binding, a basswood core, and a quartersawn maple neck that is reinforced with two graphite rods. The AA bird's-eye maple fingerboard has a 12" to 16" compound radius and is dressed with stainless steel vintage-size frets that are practically indestructible. The frets on the EVH Wolfgang Special electric guitar are super resistant to wear spots, nicks and dings, and provide for smooth feel and bending action that doesn't wear out.
Custom-designed EVH humbucking pickups are hard-mounted to the body and are wired to Bourns low-friction pots. These custom designed volume and tone controls are available only on the EVH Wolfgang guitars.
The EVH Floyd Rose tremolo unit is the first ever signature Floyd Rose tremolo bridge. It was exclusively designed for the EVH Wolfgang Special guitar and comes with the EVH D-Tuna that lets you instantly go to a drop-D tuning. EVH chrome Gotoh tuners with pearl buttons are built exclusively for the Wolfgang guitar.
The Eddie Van Halen guitar has a thin skin finish that allows for the inherent tone and resonance of the wood to dominate the overall sound of the guitar. Unpainted body cavities allow for the wood to naturally breath and age, further adding to the character and quality of tone in this magnificent electric guitar.
Exclusively to the EVH Wolfgang guitar is its custom-made molded SKB case. It is durable, lightweight and compact. With plush lining, TSA-approved latches and Eddie's trademark stripes in 3D, your Wolfgang electric guitar will be well protected on the road and in the air for decades to come.
The EVH Wolfgang guitar is built to Eddie Van Halen's exact specs and has every single feature of the Wolfgang guitars he himself plays onstage and in the studio. It's exactly what he uses.

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:
First of all let me start out by saying that I was very skeptical about this guitar, after all how could it be of any quality if it's $2k less than the orginal...Well let me say this guitar is AMAZING. I currently own about 26 guitars including 4 Peavey Wolfgangs. This guitar stands tall amongst all of them. The quality is top shelf. The guitar plays like a dream. The stainless steel frets are like playing on glass, I've never played a guitar where articlulation is so accurate. The finish is stunning and the case is gorgeous is looks so good I often leave the case open just to look at it. The guitar's hardware is topshelf the Floyd is tight and focused no LOOSE bar, the knobs and volume pots are sooooo smooth. The pickups are less gainy and distorted than the Peavey, Which I actually like, you can hear the guitars natural tone.
This guitar plays and sounds so good it makes me play ALL THE TIME ! ! ! I think about it first thing when I get up in the morning it is inspirational. If you can I highly recommend it. It was moved up to the front of the stable A++++
