Tone, Playability, and Gorgeous Quilt Maple Top

The EVH Wolfgang Standard was built to Eddie Van Halen's exacting standards, resulting in a highly playable solidbody electric guitar with ferocious crunch. Direct-mounted EVH Wolfgang humbuckers interact with this guitar's basswood body and quilt maple top to produce a phenomenal combination of resonance and bite. The Wolfgang's one-piece bolt-on maple neck is reinforced with graphite rods, ensuring maximum stability and resistance to temperature and humidity. An EVH-branded Floyd Rose Special tremolo and locking nut maintain intonation - even after extreme dive-bombing. The EVH Wolfgang Standard solidbody electric guitar reflects a commitment to quality worthy of the extraordinary guitarist it's named after.

  • A rock machine that's built for serious fretwork
  • Graphite-reinforced 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 Standard is no exception. From its basswood body to its maple neck and fingerboard, this guitar just screams quality. This amazing guitar is made for serious playing, with a compound-radius fingerboard, an EVH Floyd Rose bridge and locking nut, and direct-mounted EVH humbuckers. You also get two domed black knobs for total control over your tone and volume and ultra-stable EVH tuners. All the components come together to make a high-performance electric guitar.

Graphite-reinforced neck for stability and playability

The neck is one of the most important aspects of any instrument, which is why this EVH Wolfgang Standard's bolt-on neck is reinforced with graphite, offering amazing stability. You'll also love the playability and feel of the compound-radius fretboard on this Wolfgang Standard. 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 shredding, you'll maintain your tuning stability, thanks to the Floyd Rose tremolo's locking design.

EVH Wolfgang Standard Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Solidbody electric guitar designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen
  • Basswood body, quilt 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
  • Comfort cut forearm contour for maximum playing ease
  • Belly cut allows the guitar to fit comfortably against your torso
The EVH Wolfgang Standard solidbody electric guitar puts a legendary tonal tool in your hands!

Nearly the perfect guitar...

This guitar is a forever guitar for me. I can think of very little that would make me part ways with it. It's beautiful. It's light. It has FANTASTIC pickups in it. The neck is super comfortable. The floyd rose special works perfectly and is remarkably stable with tremolo bar use. The neck itself is (so far) very stable. I live in New England, so the weather changes a lot and this neck has not moved at all yet. The knobs and 3 way switch are in great spots. Nothing gets in the way of anything else. Some guitars have the 3 way toggle in between the volume and tone knobs and I find this configuration to be obtrusive when switching pickups. This guitar is great in that respect. My title says "Nearly" perfect. The only thing that this guitar lacks, is the D-Tuna. Buy this guitar, buy the D-Tuna install it properly and BOOM, perfection. I have used this guitar for recording and live playing and it fits the bill. My other guitars are gonna get a LOT less play time from me now... ;) Having said all of that, I must say that this guitar did NOT show up to my house in a playable condition. I had to adjust almost every adjustable thing the guitar has that is adjustable. The neck, tuners and strap buttons were all loose and needed tightening. The shipping from Indonesia probably has a lot to do with that. Changing climates and all... The Floyd rose needed a complete set-up. If you don't know how to set-up a floyd rose bridge, you might not be pleased with this guitar right out of the box. Thankfully, I know how to deal with these things and was able to quickly get it playing in top form. A kid or parent buying for someone else should know, this will need a set-up before it plays properly. That might mean spending some extra money to have a pro do it. If you can do it yourself, you can get almost nothing that shines as bright as this guitar does. I love it.

Evh Wolfgang standard

After pretty ordering in January the guitar arrived a few days ago. I pretty much play musicman guitars mostly because I have never found a better neck. This guitar comes very very close. For the price is figured it had nothing to lose, and I am so happy. Plays great and looks beautiful. Pick one else up you won't be disappointed!
