A complete and total shred machine

From its basswood body and quilted maple top to its maple neck and fingerboard, this EVH Wolfgang Standard 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:
  • Designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen for ultimate shredability
  • Basswood body, quilted maple top, and dual EVH pickups deliver resonant tone with bite
  • Compound-radius fingerboard allows for exceptional speed and comfort
  • EVH-branded Floyd Rose tremolo allows for dive-bombing
  • Comfort cut forearm contour for maximum playing ease

Enjoying this one more than expected.

I must say that I really like this more than expected - ergonomically it feels and plays great and very decent tone. This is a really great value - I have been playing this more than several of my pricier guitars - and for this price if you ding it you don't feel (as) bad... definitely a player.


I own a Wolfgang Stealth, this Wolfgang standard feels and plays as well as the Stealth. The forearm cut on the body just allows your arm to lay in such a comfortable way. The neck just has tons of feel to it, it just feels so right in your hand. This guitar sounds just as good as my Stealth. I find myself playing it way more than the Stealth. I have had this guitar over a month now and still haven't had to tune it once. I have never had a guitar stay in tune this long. 5 stars all the way !!!


First I have to say a very great Thank You to Joe James. Very Professional and Outstanding Service. Now for the guitar; FROM THE MASTER PLAYER COMES THE MASTER SOUND/TONE. This guitar is well worth every penny. If I didn't know better I would say that it equals my other four EVH gems Incredible ease of playability, close action and the tone like no other, clean, crunch or high distortion. As with any brand new guitar and the preferences of each individual player a few MINOR adjustments here and there are really no issue. The Floyd Rose was set to floating position. All I had to do was to increase the spring tension a bit so that it locks against the body when not in use. This adjustment really made a difference, enhancing the way that harmonics, power chords, high end bending and arpeggios ring out. A MUST HAVE for beginner or pro. Outstanding for a beginner because it's so easy to play - the neck is one of the very best I've ever played on over the course of my 50 years of playing guitar. Thank you Eddie for all your many years of hard work to produce these masterpieces. Owners will be entering TONE HEAVEN every time they play !

Better than expected

Very impressed, overall quality is very good. The pups are very hot and responsive. The neck is smooth and very easy to play. My first Floyd Rose, impressed. Fit and finish is top notch. The only complaint is a low E buzz but got rid of it with some fine tuning. This guitar is a great value.


First time buying a guitar via the interwebs. It arrived in great condition. Well setup and even still in tune when I took it out of the box. Been playing on it for a few weeks now with no signs of slowing down.Really impressive to say the least. Worst part are the junky pickups. Not happy with them at all. Will be changing ASAP.Thanks to everyone at Sweetwater for making all my purchases as hassle free and enjoyable as possible each and every time. Customer for life!
