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++++

I've been writing and recording music since the 1990s. I started playing because of Eddie. Back then I watched Live Without a Net three million times, haha. Loved it! I had all the same gear Eddie has played and used since the 90's. I am so used to the toggle switch being reversed from the les paul style that its awkward to play a guitar with the toggle switch set like a les paul. So when I received my new EVH Wolfgang Special I was surprised that the toggle was set up like a paul. I traded emails for about a week with EVH. The representative told me that the switch is supposed to be just like the les paul on this model. The owners manual states the opposite. Also I sent a link to EVH from the demo guy on youtube playing the model I just bought and using the toggle the same way Eddie does. So the quality is bad down there in Mexico. The toggle was a problem, the back cavity is not supposed to be painted but is heavily painted, there is on little place around the back without paint but someone colored it with a black sharpie, the volume knob that the EVH Japan model used is not on my guitar. Instead of a low friction pot that moves very fast, this is as slow as they come. After I took out the parts from an old Peavey Wolfgang Special, put them in the EVH Mexican model, the guitar plays great! So, if you buy this and your are used to everything working the way the correct way, the way the owners manual claims, you will be upset. I do love the new fret wire.

Worst fret job i have ever seen

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

      I tested this guitar out a few hours ago, 12-27-2016. at GC, and have to say this fret job had to be the worst i ever seen on a guitar at that price, I have seen better fret jobs on Chinese guitars. The fret over hang was so extreme, you could seriously hurt / cut your hand while playing. I bet you could have sawed through a piece of wood with this neck, i'm not kidding , it was that bad.

        Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

        Best pickups I've ever heard - this sounds amazing through my 15W Line6 solid state and my 50W Friedman Small Box + 4-way cab. Plays clean, quiet, fluid. Tone settings are sleek, and the volume knob brings you through the whole range of sounds in "Hot for Teacher" without fiddling with the amp at all.

        Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

        Thought this guitar was going to be the one. I was wrong. It just seemed to have several things that annoyed me as soon as I took it out of the box. The only thing I liked about the guitar was the color.

        Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

        I've owned my Wolfgang for almost a year now, and I can say without a doubt that it is one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) guitars I've ever played. Incredible tone, nice action, easy to play, you name it, it's got it. The only problems I've run into have been the D-Tuna has been a bit tough to pull out, and sometimes it sounds a bit out of tune, and there's a very small bit of fret buzz on the low E string. That might just be my guitar personally, but it's nothing to get worked up over. This guitar is for anyone who wants to play anything from metal, rock, jazz, blues, you name it.

          Great Guitar. After much research, decided to go with the Wolfgang Special Stealth. Simply a fantastic guitar - fast and stays in tune. I've tried the striped series and Wolfgang standard - I would definitely go with the Special Stealth. Excellent tone for Van Halen via the Helix and Glenn Deluane early Van Halen and 5150 patch. Sounded great through a standard amp as well. Really like the maple fretboard - fast to play and great for finger-tapping. Also sounded excellent for ACDC and very good for Def Leppard. Pickups are hot.

          Nice guitar, plays smoothly, hot pickups for certain.
          My only issue is with where I bought it from, the GC in Ft. Worth, had to remind salesman to give me the accessories that go with it, truss bar, tremolo arm and allen wrench. I could not get the D-Tuna to function at all so I went back to the salesman and asked for the booklet that should accompany the guitar, he tells me there isn`t one and I should go to look it up on Youtube! Really??? Never again GC, never again!

            This is probably the most comfortable guitar I have ever owned. I especially love the neck. The guitar has overall great weight, great balance, great tone. Once I pick it up, I don't want to put it down. Very fun to play. The D-Tuna is especially cool. You can go back and forth between an E and a drop D on the low E string and the guitar stays in tune! In my opinion, it's the best guitar you can get for the price. Highly recommended!

              overall very pleased with the guitar. Has a good sound that I was looking for and plays excellent. Build quality seems very good. Set up out of the box was pretty good. Fine tuning low E string has limitations though. Set fine adjustment about middle way and the D-tuna hits the guitar body. There is a cut out for it to clear but cut out is not deep enough. Only disappointment was guitar was shipped from a store and was not in original package, no warranty info, tools or manual. Other thing I notice is my strumming hand keeps hitting the volume knob and turns it down. Had to make some adjustments as I was used to super strat style and didn't have this trouble This was easily over-come.

                The Stealth guitar has excellent feel and sustain, and plays very well with minimal effort. Also stays in tune and sounds well rounded. Together with the EVH 5150-50 watt head, anyone can now sound like Van Halen:) This is my first guitar with a trem bar and I love it!
