Overview

The EVH Wolfgang electric guitar represents 2 years of intense research and development, and a year of brutal testing on the road. With every aspect examined and upgraded to the highest standards, the EVH Wolfgang has been produced to Eddie's exact specifications and has features identical to the Wolfgang guitars he records and performs with. The EVH Wolfgang includes a distinctive double-cutaway body with an arched AA maple top on a lightweight basswood back, a quartersawn single-piece AA bird's-eye maple neck fitted with stainless steel frets, double-potted custom-wound guitar pickups, five-piece binding on the matching body and headstock, custom-made signature tuning machines, Floyd Rose double-locking trem with the patented EVH D-Tuna drop-D tuning system, and Bourns low-friction pots.

Another distinctive Eddie-mod is the 3-way pickup toggle wired in reverse: the up position (normally the neck pickup) is the bridge pickup, down (normally the bridge) is the neck pickup.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

The EVH Tone/Harmonic Monster

By David Senk

from Clearfield Utah

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

I saved and saved for a very long time to get one of these. I have been playing for a long time and THIS ONE is it !!! Every word in the company description of this guitar and the specs are 100% true. The most powerful expression of tone and harmonics I have ever experienced in my life. Incredible quality and precision in every part of the guitar. I've owned this guitar for about 6 months now and I will never sell it or let it go for ANY PRICE ! This thing is a Dream Machine for any guitar enthusiast - It sounds soo good on almost any amp you plug in to but sounds best on a tube amp. I currently have it on a Peavy XXX 212 tube amp - JUST MIND BLOWING !!! Worth every penny and then some ! It would be very hard to be disappointed with this guitar. Just try one out and see for yourself.

SO FAR, THE BEST GUITAR FOR ROCK AND BLUES

By edward e

from Youngstown Ohio

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

If you like a consistent, solid, and technically superior electric guitar, the Wolfgang, IS THE RIGHT GUITAR. It's the quality, the maple neck, the body with directly mounted custom EVH pick ups... The EVH-floyd rose, with the EVH d-tuner... ...and what about the indestructible stainless steel frets ?? If you've never tried one of these exclusive guitars, well, you don't know what you're missing. The color of the tone, is so sweet and warm, and at the same time you can turn it into a hard rock monster, where harmonics, and crystal clear overdrive...literally kick butt.

Awesome

By Crzybnch

from Woodridge, IL

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

I read reviews of this and decided to buy one and felt comfortable with Guitar Center's return policy. The finish is flawless, action is very low, no buzz anywhere on the neck. Someone said the fretwork was rough...compared to what I don't know. My fret wires are jewel smooth with no sign of dressing tool marks or leveling. They shine like chrome. The pots are smooth and turn effortlessly. The pickups are perfect for this guitar. I always find myself turning up the volume knob on other guitars when playing but not with this one! I've been playing for 30+ years and own some high end instruments to compare it to. My only complaint is the quilted top. I wish it was an AAAA top instead of AA. This however does not affect they playability of this instrument. I can't explain the satisfaction I had when I plugged this in and wailed on it. It's kind of like manipulating a lion to do whatever you want.

EVH Wolgang is one NICE guitar!

By Mootie

from Fenton, MO.

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

I have the Tobacco Burst, beautiful guitar, plays great, no issues whatsoever. Stays in tune very well, not a huge deal but other guitars I have owned (PRS Custom 24, a Strat or two) were always out of tune, lots of humidity changes in MO.- but the EVH Wolfgang stays in tune for weeks-- must be indicative of something. Excellent fit and finish to the instrument, even nicer than my PRS. Love the non-oversized SS frets and compound radius neck with unfinished back-perfect for me anyhow! Yes, they are not cheap but I am very satisfied, sold my other 2 electrics and just 'rockin with the Wolfgang now- would highly recomend. Happy New Year to all!

EVH Wolfgang SHREDS!!!

By Robert C.

from Sacramento, CA

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

The latest and greates from rock n roll icon Eddie Van Halen is a Heavy Metal shredding machine!!! This guitars' construction is second to none with top flight quality parts and craftmanship throughout. If you are looking for a guitar that is easy to play and beautiful to look at, this is it. The tone is somewhat limited but if you're looking for the classic VH brown sound, here it is. You can get a wide range of tones with this guitar with some tweaking of the tone & volume knobs but this guitars is best when turned up to ten. High gain is where this baby screams and sings!!! In my opinion the neck pickup was not to my taste. I would have liked something a little brighter but that is the only complaint I have with this axe. It is truly an amazing guitar and very easy to play!!!

EVH Wolfgang

By Chuck

from Rockwall, Texas

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

After playing most of the quality guitars I could get my hands on, I stumbled across the Wolfgang. I didnt care if it was Eds, Zacks, or Erics signature models, it just felt right in my hands. The guitar has unbelievable sustain and a neck that almost plays itself. Very impressed with the sound and especially ease of playability. The price is high, but you get alot for your money. Play one and see for yourself. 5 Stars for sure.

True to the LEGEND!

By B King

from Detroit Michigan

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

Exceptional features, outstanding playablity and versatility! I have been searching for an additon to my 78 modified strat and the new EVH exceeded every possible expectation. This guitar plays effortlessly, very fast neck with no sacrifice to tone. Cleans up extremly well transitioning from nasty overdirve via volume control. Set up is spot on - excellent harmonics, warm tones, sparkling highs and killer low end. The floyd is a fixed trem which takes a bit of getting use to, assuming you have a floating trem, and the D-tuna is absolutley brilliant! You can really abuse the trem and use the D-Tuna and sstill stay perfectly tunned, however I'll keep trying. The finish is world-class, purchased vinatge white, the binding, tunning pegs, hardware and attention to detail scream botique quality not mass produced. The SKD case is exceptional. In my search for a new guitar, my sense is that there are many players that put their name on equipment the difference here is that Ed's heart and soul are in this guitar and that fact is evident in all the physical details but most important when you close your eyes and play! Thanks Ed, you have inspired me since 78 and again with your recent design of the Wolfgang! Thanks Guitar Center great service on this one!

5 stars are not enough

By Shawn

from oakdale, ct

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

This guitar is exactly as advertised. My tobacco sunburst Wolfgang came out of the box set up with perfect action and ready to go. The inherent quality of the guitar shows. When played through my Marshall 50 Watt non-tube amp the guitar sounds great clean or dirty. Plugged into my friends Vox AC-30 tube amp with Celestion Greens, the pickups really come alive and beg me to crank the amp to 10. The SKB case is truly beautiful and of similar quality to the guitar. Regrets: None, except that I now have to save up to buy the matching EVH amp.

AWESOME GUITAR

By Ray Campbell

from Las Vegas

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar:

I have them all Peavey, Charvel, and Ernie Ball. This Guitar beats them all. It plays like a dream right out of the case. The set up on this was right on. I have had this guitar for only 10 days and can not put it down. I have done all my studio work with it since I got it. Thanks to Eddie and Fender for this Guitar.
