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!

This Wolfgang Special is freaking Awesome!

I researched a lot of guitars before deciding an EVH Wolfgang Special would be the next one for me to add to my collection.I'm a single-cutaway, double humbucker kinda guy, but I wanted my next guitar to be something a little different.My PRS, Gibson LP, and Epiphone LP all have Rosewood for the fingerboards so I wanted to try Maple. Also, I wanted to try something with a Floyd Rose.During my research I found I kept going back to the EVH brand. I liked what I read, liked what I saw, and hey ... Its Eddie Van Halen!! I had to give it a try!Still, before purchasing, I read all the reviews I could find on all the past models. All the pros and cons I could find between all the various versions made by the different companies as well as different countries.Was the MIM going to address the negatives I had read about on previous versions?I had read complaints about the finish, fretting, neck problems, etc. on earlier non MIM versions. Well, the Wolfgang Special intrigued me enough that I wanted to give it a try.Now the hard part. Finding one!The local GC's never have them in stock so I couldn't even try out one. Enter Sweetwater.Of course like any musician, I'm scanning all the usual suspects for deals all of the time.MF, SA, GC, AMS and of course Sweetwater!One day while looking at the Wolfgang Special on their site, I finally clicked the little box that says "Notify me when in stock".The next day I received a call from Sweetwater Sales Engineer Anthony Jenkins. We had an awesome conversation.Its nice to talk with an actual musician about gear that you are looking at purchasing. My first concern I asked about was on buying a guitar online. I've always purchased smaller items online (pedals, cables, strings, effects, etc.) but never a guitar. He assured me of the process and the quality control that Sweetwater instills on its gear. I felt very comfortable about buying this guitar site unseen after speaking with him.We spoke several more times over the next month as we both were waiting for the MIM shipment to arrive.When it finally did, he called to tell me that it is now being setup and going through their 55 point evaluation. I asked if he would go play it to see how it feels. He liked that because he had been wanting to try one out himself. He called back later that day to tell me how great it felt and he sent me some photos of it. So Awesome!!!Ok! I've been playing this guitar for about a month now.Now for my Official 2015 MIM EVH Wolfgang Special review:I love it!I chose the Vintage White since my other 3 guitars are all flame tops, and the finish is absolutely gorgeous!Finish is flawless through-out! So glad they switched to arched top also!The neck feels amazing and is so fast! No sharp frets like on older reviews of older models.And love the jumbo frets (especially since all my guitars have jumbos).The Floyd Rose and D-Tuna are wicked! I can't believe this thing stays in tune like it does with all the dive bombs and drop D tuning. Amazing!Tones are sweet too! I play through a Marshall tube amp with awesome cleans and great heavy gain tones!Electronics are well soldered, pups are awesome, but I am having to be careful on bumping the Vol knob (low friction so bumps easily).Tuning keys are great, very smooth.It has been my go to axe for the past month! I love my Paul but this thing really rocks and I just can't put it down.Some have complained about the pricing but I compare this $1000 Wolfgang closer to my $3000 Gibson LP, than to my $1000 PRS.Since we usually have to spend at least $1000 to get a really decent playing guitar, I think they got it right.At least they did with this one! Thanks Eddie! Rock On!Thank you Sweetwater for the spot on setup! Excellent job guys!!And thank you Anthony! I appreciate all that you did to make this such an amazing purchase! \m/
