EVH's Iconic Bumblebee Electric Guitar

This EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody evokes Eddie Van Halen's iconic Bumblebee electric guitar. Its archtop basswood body fits like a glove. Its graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck is stable and comfortable and the hand-rubbed urethane gel back finish only adds to its playability. Ultra-high-speed techniques seem effortless on this guitar's compound-radius fingerboard. Experience the dynamic, articulate voicing and near-endless sustain of direct-mounted EVH Wolfgang humbuckers. Dive-bomb to your heart's content with an EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem. The EVH Wolfgang Special solidbody electric guitar is tailor-made for high-performance playing.

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-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo, and direct-mounted EVH humbuckers. The controls are top-notch too: you get a handy 3-way pickup selector switch, low-friction volume pot, and high-friction tone pot for total control over your tone and volume.

Quartersawn neck for stability and playability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any guitar, 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. No matter how hard you're playing, 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!

EVH Wolfgang Special Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen
  • Basswood body and dual EVH pickups deliver resonant tone, sustain, and crunch
  • Compound-radius fingerboard allows for exceptional speed and comfort
  • EVH-branded Floyd Rose tremolo allows for twisting, bending, and dive-bombing
