In the quest to design an especially sleek all-black addition to the Wolfgang series, Eddie Van Halen decided to try something he previously wasn't known to prefer-an ebony fingerboard.

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.
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.
