EVH Wolfgang Special Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A complete and total shred machine
  • Quartersawn neck for stability and playability
  • Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and huge dive-bombs
A complete and total shred machine

From its basswood body to its maple neck and fingerboard, this EVH Wolfgang Special just screams quality - and that's just the tonewoods! This gorgeous guitar is made for serious playing, with a compound-radius fingerboard, an EVH Floyd Rose bridge and locking nut, and direct-mounted EVH humbuckers. The controls are top-notch, too: you get a handy 3-way pickup selector switch and low-friction volume and tone pots for total control over your tone and volume. All the components come together to make a guitar that looks absolutely stunning and plays even better.

Quartersawn neck for stability and playability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this EVH Wolfgang Special features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is significantly more stable than plain-sawn necks and less likely to warp, twist, or shrink. You'll also love the playability and feel of the compound-radius fretboard on this Wolfgang Special. The fretboard radius goes from 12" at the nut to a comfortable and flat 16" radius on the upper frets.

Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and huge dive-bombs

First gaining popularity in the 1980s, the Floyd Rose tremolo's locking design keeps your guitar in tune, even if you like to perform extreme pitch pyrotechnics. You can force the whammy bar all the way down to the guitar's body for psychotic dive-bombing. You can pull the whammy bar up to the stratosphere, raising your tone by as much as a seventh. No matter how hard you're shredding, you'll maintain your tuning stability, thanks to the Floyd Rose tremolo's locking design. On top of that, you can easily switch to drop D tuning, courtesy of the Wolfgang Special's D-Tuna tremolo device!

EVH Wolfgang Special Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen for ultimate shredability
  • Basswood body and dual EVH pickups deliver resonant tone, sustain, and crunch
  • Compound-radius allows for exceptional speed and comfort
  • EVH-branded Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and dive-bombing
  • D-Tuna tremolo device gives you instant drop-D tuning
  • Belly cut allows the guitar to fit comfortably against your torso
The EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody electric guitar puts the tonal tool of a legendary guitarist in your hands!

Absolutely Stunning!

If you want a very versatile guitar with stunning looks and a great price to match, look no further than the Wolfgang Special! When you compare this guitar with its USA counterpart it's really hard to tell a difference play and sound wise. The neck has a really great feel to it and the body is really comfortable. For the money you really can't beat this guitar. Thank you EVH and Sweetwater for the great jobs y'all do! Keep it up!

...After months of research on buying a new guitar, I chose the EVH Wolfgang Special (Stealth) Sweetwater had the best deal and 4 of them in stock. When I finally made my final decision and ordered, my sales person Chris Nunley called me immediately... and I was completely (once again!) blown away by the lighting fast service. I had the guitar at my home within 24 hours (next day delivery) I had a rehearsal with my band scheduled for that evening... I tuned it up, inspected it, plugged it into my Boss ME80, then into my Marshall JCM900 and this guitar was everything I thought it would be! The neck is amazing, frets- perfect to every last detail. Sound, sustain, clarity and punch were amazing. Now to mention a few things about other reviews I've read on this guitar: The pickups are excellent, they do not sound the same (as one reviewer had said) they both give you maximum benefits of each position. Pickup selector switch was not installed in the reverse manor that some said it was- the up position is the neck pickup, the down position is the bridge pickup. Now here is an added bonus! with the switch in the middle position, it sounds like a coil tap, more jangle, but with a more full lows. Beautiful! The Whammy bar: After stretching the strings enough, it works excellent! the D-tuna was something new for me and after figuring out how to engage it, it worked perfectly (there was a bit more string stretching before it was "right on" though. The weight of the guitar and the design of the body are wonderful. I played it no less than 5 hours the first night, and then for 2 more 3 hour rehearsals this week... it simply plays great and sounds amazing! I'm so thrilled! Thank you!

Simply the best we've ever played

The neck is perfect, it's lightweight and sounds amazing.

Amazing Guitar!

Solid all around guitar! I’ve been playing for 20+ years with all makes. I’m a Gibson and Ibanez player myself. This is most comfortable neck I’ve ever played with! Even better than the previous Peavey and EVH models. The Mexican models have a certain smoothness to them that is very hard to explain unless you play with them. Only think that comes close in terms of feel and tone is probably Music Man Guitars. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone seeking that solid rock-oriented guitar with a great, comfortable neck and star pedigree. Skip if...you need a subtler, more subdued tone. But, the most enjoyable experience I must say was dealing with the guys at sweetwater. My rep, Anthony was amazing. He was in constant communication with me. I was even sent pictures of it before it left their facility. These guys know what they are doing and they take care of you like if your were EVH himself. Kuddos guys \m/

Wolfgang Special Stealth

Awesome guitar. I was a little nervous about getting a made in Mexico but this is a prescision made instrument. The jumbo frets are great. The pickups are HOT. It's every bit a hot rod guitar, but it cleans up really nice too. Using the middle position on the pickup gives an out of phase sound. Love this guitar.
