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!
