EVH Wolfgang Special - Matte Army Drab
Available Soon Notify me

Tone and Playability Worthy of Its Name

Eddie Van Halen's 35 years of experience and knowledge are brilliantly reflected in the EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody electric guitar. Direct-mounted EVH Wolfgang humbuckers yield tremendous girth and bite, in addition to incredible resonance and sustain. This guitar's graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck was carved and rolled to Eddie's exacting standards, creating insane levels of playability. You'll be amazed at how quickly this guitar's D-Tuna shifts it to Drop D tuning and back. The EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody electric guitar reflects a commitment to quality worthy of the extraordinary guitarist it's named after.

EVH Wolfgang Special Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A rock machine that's built for serious fretwork
  • Quartersawn neck for stability and playability
  • Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and huge dive-bombs
A rock machine that's built for serious fretwork

At Sweetwater, we've been consistently impressed by EVH guitars, and the Wolfgang Special is no exception. From its basswood body to its maple neck and fingerboard, this guitar 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:
  • Solidbody electric guitar designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen
  • 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 a legendary tonal tool in your hands!

Waited a long time deciding which model to purchase.Finally went with the Wolfgang Special and I'm very happy with my choice.This guitar is more than I'd hoped for and then some.The quality of everything from the pickups to the detuna to the unique Army Drab color is just great.I highly recommend the Wolfgang Special if you want an awesome guitar that looks as good as it plays.

Awesome and more awesome

I waited a long time for me to get this baby in my hands. I wanted the Matte Army drab because the color is unique. It is more that I hoped for. The fit and finish is flawless. The neck is like butter. And the tone plugged into my Marshall JVM? Killer! Highly recommended. And Sweetwater sent me pictures of my exact guitar when they shipped it. Who does that? And of course Nathan Parker kept me informed the whole time I was waiting for it. Around 5 months. He's the best.
