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 and arched, flame maple top 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, arched maple top, and dual EVH pickups deliver resonant tone with bite
  • 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!

EVH Wolfgang Special

Just got this guitar and it is everything I had hoped it would be. The intonation, fret board and work is as good as I've seen, craftsmanship and finish is flawless, no nicks/dings/bubbles in the finish whatsoever (looks just like the pictures they had on line) and it was spot on in tune after being shipped from Indiana to NC. I actually picked the guitar up by the middle neck and held it at a 45 degree angle and shook it just a bit and there were no pops or cracks or creaks .. this guitar is solid and .Sweetwater did a great job with their 55 point guitar inspection and I am 100% satisfied with both the product and the customer service provided by Anthony regarding questions about the guitar and the split shipment ... plugged this thing in my Fender 5150III 2x12 combo amp and guess what ... you can actually get the VH sound without running effects.

Superior Guitar

What a guitar! The one piece top is amazing. The neck is amazing. The sound is amazing. I could go on!I do want to mention that the EVH Tremolo is set to dive-only. It rests against the top of the guitar. The Sweetwater description seems to indicate the trem is floating - that you can bend up. Can't. Dive only seems weird at first if you are used to a floating trem. However there are benefits: easier to tune the guitar, the D-tuna works accurately, double stop bends are easier.I am very impressed with this guitar. Ed VH knows what he's doing, design-wise!
