Now available in a distinctive sans-tremolo version with TonePros hard-tail bridge.
The incredible EVH Wolfgang Special is now available in a distinctive sans-tremolo version—the Wolfgang Special Hardtail. This is the high-performance flat-top version of the original EVH USA Wolfgang guitar; this time with the addition of a TonePros hard-tail bridge with stop tailpiece and fine tuners for the ultimate in stable intonation and precise tuning.
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. 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.
