Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

What an awesome product! This is my second USA EVH Wolfgang. I love the Ebony fret board. It's comfortable and super fast. Great build quality and fantastic tone. This is the nicest guitar I've ever owned and I've had them all. I'll definitely be buying another?

Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

Just got it last night and I couldn't be happier with this guitar. I currently own one US model and 3 Japanese models. The Japanese models are high quality for the money but it's difficult to compare them to the build quality of the US models. Every EVH Wolfgang I own has a maple neck so I was hesitate when it came to Ebony fret board. I understand now why almost 90% of the Wolfgangs have ebony fret boards. The fret board and neck have a more comfortable feel and it's faster than the maple fret board. The build quality, tone and overall superiority of this guitar is really something to behold. I've owned Les Pauls, Strats and Charvels and none of them compare to the superiority of this guitar. Great job Eddie! Best guitar on the market. I can't wait to get my next one!

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

      High quality guitar with great tone. I play it in church (contemporary!)and in a small garage band. The only thing not so great is that sometimes I will accidentally turn down the volume a bit since the volume pot is low friction but that doesn't happen a lot.

      Good sound

      By Dave

      from Massachusetts

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

      Good sound. The upper body cutout is adjacent to the 15th / 16th fret which obstructed my thumb when reaching for the upper frets. When resting the guitar on my right leg, the contour of the lower body positioned the guitar further to my right (compared to a Strat body style). I needed to hold the guitar like a nylon string classical guitar to get a comfortable playing position when sitting down. The Floyd Rose bridge rests against the body of the guitar. If the tremolo bar is released quickly, the bridge will snap back against the body and make a loud knock. This is something to be aware of for anyone used to playing a guitar with a floating Floyd Rose bridge design. I give a 5 star rate rating for the sound of the Wolfgang. Unfortunately, I didn't love the other features.

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

      I love the EVH Wolfgang USA. It took a little getting used to, as I had been playing a Strat, but after some adjustment the guitar feels natural. Its weight was surprising. It seems closer to a Les Paul than a Strat, but I got used to that also. The stock PUPs are great, nice harmonics and sustain. At this price point, I wish it came with German made Floyd Rose, but the Korean one is OK.

      Stealth wealth

      By Paul Berman

      from Oakland, NJ

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

      This guitar has it all. US made, nice look, top-end EVH hardware, D-Tuna, Wolfgang pickups. It plays like a dream. Ebony fingerboard looks great, but does give a bit more of a twang. Not sure why they didn't go with jumbo frets, but it is still easy to play. The Floyd rose only dives. Doesn't "float." Not a problem for me. I don't love the shape of the guitar, but you get used to it. Much lighter in weight than my Gibson. If you like Eddie's sound, this is your best bet. The look of the Stealth is the best in the EVH lineup in my opinion. Price is high, but not unreasonable for a guitar made at Fender's Coranodo, CA Custom Shop.

          Amazing

          By Eric Guerena

          from Sacramento

          Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Electric Guitar:

          The guitar is loaded with features, sleek frosty black look, and amazing tone. The quality and reliability seem to be great... but I have owned the guitar for less than a month. It was the most expensive instrument I have ever purchased so I was nervous but after the first play (I did try it out in the store but ended up ordering one online months later when I made my mind up) I was blown away. I really enjoy this instrutment and plan to have it forever.
