Play the Same Guitar Used by a Fretboard Legend!

The EVH Wolfgang solidbody electric guitar is built to deliver the goods on any stage; that should come as no surprise, given that the man behind this impressive axe not only designed it - he put it through its paces every night during Van Halen's last world tour! Built to Eddie Van Halen's exact specifications, the Wolfgang gives you absolutely awesome tone, practical playability and comfort, and the kind of stunning looks you'd expect from a world-class guitar. From its high-quality pickups, hardware, and controls to its gorgeous, top-notch tonewoods, the Wolfgang is made to rock in style!

EVH Wolfgang Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Road tested by EVH himself
  • Built to Eddie's exacting specifications
  • Quality throughout
Road tested by EVH himself

To say this guitar is "road tested" would definitely be an understatement! Wolfgang prototypes were put through a full year of brutal in-concert road testing by Eddie on Van Halen's triumphant 2007-2008 world tour. The result is a bulletproof and beautiful guitar that takes whatever you can dish out and then asks for more. As the VH tour roared along, Eddie changed and adjusted components and specs until he was satisfied with the Wolfgang's sound, feel and looks. To prove that it was battle-worthy and could survive the road, performance data was collected from every gig for months and months to establish and confirm consistency and durability.

Built to Eddie's exacting specifications

From its basswood body and 1/2"-thick AAAAA flame maple top to its quartersawn maple neck and beautiful ebony fingerboard, the EVH Wolfgang just screams quality - and that's just the tonewoods! This gorgeous guitar is made for serious playing, with dual graphite reinforcement rods in the neck, a Floyd Rose #2 locking nut and EVH Floyd Rose trem (complete with D-Tuna), and hard-mounted EVH humbuckers. The controls are top-notch, too: you get a handy 3-way pickup selector switch and Bourns 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 the EVH Wolfgang features a quartersawn maple neck. Besides looking good, the straight grain of quartersawn necks is about 50% 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 the Wolfgang. The fretboard radius goes from 12" at the nut to a comfortable and flat 16" radius on the upper frets.

EVH Wolfgang Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A shred machine designed by rock legend Eddie Van Halen
  • Gorgeous AAAAA flame maple top and ebony fingerboard
  • High-end tonewoods and hardware
  • D-Tuna tremolo device gives you instant drop-D tuning
  • Custom humbuckers built to EVH's specs
The EVH Wolfgang puts the tonal tool of a legendary guitarist in your hands!

Simply Amazing

This was my first purchase through Sweetwater and the experience was outstanding start to finish. I felt at ease from the initial order through delivery. The customer service puts Sweetwater over the top in my book. My rep checked in with me each step of the way from initial order to Post delivery. (Thanks James....truly something a lot of other retailers could learn from.)As for my new baby... It's like playing a pure work of art! The setup is spot on and neck is the smoothest / fastest I've ever played. I still can't believe the tone and some of the harmonics I can get out of it...though that shouldn't be a complete surprise. I absolutely love it and would recommend to anyone thinking about taking the plunge.... You won't regret it!Thanks EVH for making this beauty.
