The EVH Wolfgang Special electric guitar represents 35 years of Eddie Van Halen’s experience, knowledge and experimentation, distilled into a purebred music-making machine with highly responsive performance and tone. With sleek style, powerhouse sound and high-speed playability, it’s ready to crank out some serious rock.

The EVH Wolfgang Special features a robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications—with a speedy 12”–16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets for energetic riffing and blazing leads. The crystal-clear Custom Designed EVH Wolfgang humbucking pickups are direct-mounted to the basswood body for near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo combines with the Floyd Rose locking nut to maintain precise tuning, plus the EVH D-Tuna retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger.

Every component of the Wolfgang Special has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing. The low-friction volume knob lets you perform speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts as your picking hand flies furiously across the strings. The EVH DNA injected into this monster of a guitar makes the Wolfgang Special is a hard-rocking machine that begs to be unchained so you can tear it up.
