Tone and Playability Worthy of Its Name

Eddie Van Halen’s 35 years of experience and knowledge are brilliantly reflected in the EVH Wolfgang Special. 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. Intentionally positioned against the body, the dive-bomb-only D-Tuna-equipped Floyd Rose lets you mimic Eddie’s signature trem work with ease, along with giving you instant access to Drop D tuning. The EVH Wolfgang Special reflects a commitment to quality worthy of the extraordinary guitarist it’s named after.

A rock machine that’s built for serious fretwork

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 and low-friction volume pot for speedy access to tones and swells. Not to worry — a high-friction tone pot prevents unwanted slippage when you’ve got your pinky in there. All these components come together to make a guitar that looks absolutely stunning and plays even better.

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. 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.

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.
