Almost 20 years after first EVH signature model and they are finally affordable!

By Jeremy

from Houston, TX

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

The pros: All the expensive features that have a direct impact on tone are present in the new "EVH Wolfgang Standard line. That is, you get the exact same pickups, pots and wiring found in the high-end models (confirmed by evhgear.com). The neck is also cut to the same dimensions as on the high-end wolfgang. Same scale, nut width and radius. The neck is also reinforced like the high-end models. The feel of the neck on the EVH guitars is a huge part of the experience. The maple top models have A REAL QUILTED MAPLE TOP not a veneer/fake maple top like Music Man is putting on their AX series (the AX series are high quality important versions of the guitar EVH designed in the 90s with Ernie Ball Music Man, production has continued under a new model name after the relationship ended). I plugged in an EVH Wolfgang Standard not expecting much and I left home with the guitar in hand. I'm not the kind of consumer that usually does that. Having been disappointed in the Korean made Peavey Wolfgang's years back I was imagining Fender's EVH brand was making the same mistake, but I'm happy to report the EVH Standard is much better. Cons: There aren't many but there are a few. 1.) the pickup selector switch on mine broke. 2.) EVH makes a very nice foam gig bag design for the EVH Standard series and the EVH stripped guitars. The EVH Standard should come with this case. 3.) The high-end EVH models have stainless steel vintage style frets. The Standard features less expensive jumbo frets. No carved to, no d-tuna, no brand name tuners. Bottom line: With the new Standard series, EVH has delivered his first sub $600 signature model opening the door for many would-be buyers to finally pull the trigger.

Very good guitar.

By Tim

from Lebanon Ohio

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

It plays very well. You can really whale hard on the bar and it wont come out of tune. The comfort of the guitar and left hand picking comfort is amazing. I knew when I first picked up I was gonna buy it. I played on it in the store about 1 hr and 10 hrs at the house. I still am a big Les Paul fan but I might consider buying a top model one now after owning and playing the low end model. Amazing ability for a guitar.

    Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

    In my opinion, this instrument falls into a small class of guitars which are not American made, yet provide comparable quality to some American products. I've observed no mechanical shortcomings, nor blemishes on the finish of my instrument. What is most important is that, among my other 8 guitars, this one immediately sliced a unique niche for itself. Also, it's refreshing that my setup required little more than stringing with my preferred strings. Frets were nice, neck well adjusted, intonation correct, and so on. It's just a treat to get an instrument and not a project. Well done!

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

      Hard for me to say because I'm a huge Eddie fan so I have quite a few EVH guitars. Have four EVH's at work right now and try to interchange to give them equal playing time. I know that doesn't help anybody interested in buy one. It's a beautiful guitar and has a great feel.

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

      Had a peavey wolfgang import for a few years it was just ok. this is still an import but man does it play great. love the neck and frets on this wolfgang the best. overall best guitar for the price. the arm contour is exactly what i wanted on other wolfgangs glad they added that to this one. i got the trans blue but has a purple tint to it, looks good though.

          This is a great guitar. It sounds fantastic, and it just feels really good to play. I've always been kind of lazy about practicing, but I've made more time for it ever since getting this guitar, it just sounds that good.

          The floyd rose works great. You can do divebombs with the whammy bar and it won't go out of tune. I TRIED to make it go out of tune and at best I only needed to make a minor adjustment. Great price for the quality of the instrument.

            Good guitar good sound. The Allan wrench that came with it was not the size needed. Strings broke on first use cause of the metal braces were too tight.

              Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

              I must admit, I was a little bit worried when I found out that this guitar was built in Indonesia. I didn't know what to expect. Well my worries were all for naught, this guitar rocks! Fit and finish are outstanding for a guitar in this price range, and I've played guitars that cost twice as much that weren't half as much fun to play. Forget your worries, buy this thing already!
