Overview

EVH brings you the Wolfgang USA Edward Van Halen Signature model, loaded with Eddie Van Halen’s most up-to-date specs along with the classic looks and behemoth sound you’ve come to expect.

The basswood body features a big-leaf maple top and five-ply binding, while the bolt-on quartersawn maple neck is sculpted to Eddie's precise specs, with graphite reinforcement and a hand-rubbed back finish for smooth, fast playability. The compound-radius (12-16 in.) ebony fingerboard has 22 vintage stainless steel frets, pearloid (Ivory finish) or dot (Stealth finish) inlays, and a convenient heel-mounted truss rod adjustment wheel.

Experience scorching and well-balanced tone with a custom-wound alnico 2 EVH Wolfgang Humbucker in the bridge and a newly added alnico 3 custom-wound EVH Wolfgang Humbucker in the neck, both controlled by a special reverse oriented three-way toggle switch. Stutter-stop à la "You Really Got Me" with the red-button kill switch and play “Cathedral” without any crackle or pop, courtesy of the EVH Custom High Friction (Tone) Pot and an EVH "HPU" or High Performance Upgrade, custom-made Low Friction (Volume) Pot.

Sturdy and steadfast, the EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo provides endless sustain and precise tuning regardless of how many dive bombs you rip or how drastically you attack your whammy-bar. The EVH D-Tunaretunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger, with a low-friction volume control for smooth swells and a high-friction tone control that prevents accidental tone shifting.

Boasts elegant and classic style in Ivory or Stealth with chrome hardware, black speed knobs and dog leash strap/eye-bolt clasps. Hardshell EVH Striped SKB case and EVH leather strap included.

Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Edward Van Halen Signature:

Awesome guitar! I thought the previous standard EVH USA with the ebony fretboard was great, but this new model is high octane. The new Alnico 3 pickup sounds amazingly tight and clear, and the guitar plays effortlessly. Crazy harmonics and a very articulate tone, either clean or with lots of gain. Ivory finish and inlays look very good. Mine was ready to shred right out of the case. Floyd Rose set just right. No adjustments necessary. I'm completely impressed, and would highly recommend this new model.

Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Edward Van Halen Signature:

I spent over a year researching this guitar before finally I bought it. I am a huge EVH fan and love the 80s rock genre, so I was excited to give it a try. I've played an Ibanez RG for years, and most recently an ESP KH-202; for sure, the Wolfe is a substantially different instrument, but I've found it to be far superior, at least for me.

Guitar love is definitely subjective so let me tell you what I love. The instrument feels solid...it's a very high quality build. The neck is an absolute dream. It's not as thin as my RG or ESP but I think that's a good thing because for some reason the slightly thicker neck feels more comfortable to me. It's extremely easy to play, and the ebony fretboard is incredible. I did worry about the vintage frets and they took a little getting used to (I have always played jumbo) but now I love them. I have no trouble bending or playing whatsoever, although it's still taking me some time to adjust when tapping harmonics. I do love the stainless steel as these frets should never wear.

The other thing I have to mention is the bridge, which is a Floyd, but anchored so that you can't pull it up. Since I never pulled up on the trem Vai-style anyway it doesn't really bother me, and I do think it improves sustain and tone. I will say that you couldn't get this guitar to go out of tune if you tried. It's the best trem setup I've experienced. The pickups are also hard mounted which I like if for nothing else than it looks great.

There are lots of little specialities with the guitar which I could go on and on about but the bottom line is that you really need to try one to see if it is for you. I suspect that this may not be the instrument for everyone, but if you are an EVH guy/gal and/or love rock/metal, this is an exceptional way to make it happen.
