EVH WOLFGANG SPECIAL ADDS THREE NEW FINISHES
The EVH Wolfgang Special, also road-tested in arenas around the world by Eddie Van Halen, is a purebred music-making machine that will be available in 2016 in three new eye-popping finishes: Matte Army Drab, Satin Red and Gold.
The robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications—supports a speedy 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard, facilitating energetic riffing and blazing leads. Twenty-two jumbo frets take every bend with ease without affecting the instrument’s natural tone, allowing every note to ring true.
The crystal clear Custom Designed EVH Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the basswood body, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Trem combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, while the EVH D-Tuna retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger.

EVH WOLFGANG WG STANDARD ADDS SIX NEW FINISHES
Unchained performance and priced for the gigging musician, the Wolfgang Standard is ideal for aspiring shredders and is available in six additional finishes including Transparent Blue Burst, Transparent Purple Burst, Ferrari Red, Silverburst, Snow White and Mystic Blue Metallic.
This model contains many of the same blazing features as its more expensive brethren—a one-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods holds strong against the ravages of temperature and humidity and a speedy 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard with comfortably rolled edges and 22 jumbo frets. Dual EVH Wolfgang humbucking pickups mounted directly to the body increase vibration transfer, resulting in sustain for days on end.
Two domed control knobs have been dialed-in to Van Halen’s exacting specifications—the smooth-feeling 500k pots make it easy to find a unique sound while retaining the crisp high-end sparkle of the EVH Wolfgang pickups. The EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Special bridge and R2® locking nut consistently stay in tune through the deepest whammy dives and horse whinnies.
