EVH Wolfgang Special in Satin Primer Gray w/ Ebony Fingerboard
Tone and Playability Worthy of Its Name
Eddie Van Halen's 35 years of experience and knowledge are brilliantly reflected in the EVH Wolfgang Special. Direct-mounted EVH Wolfgang humbuckers yield tremendous girth and bite, in addition to incredible resonance and sustain. This guitar's graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck was carved and rolled to Eddie's exacting standards, creating insane levels of playability. You'll be amazed at how quickly this guitar's D-Tuna shifts it to Drop D tuning and back. The EVH Wolfgang Special reflects a commitment to quality worthy of the extraordinary guitarist it's named after.

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 ebony 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 Floyd Rose bridge and locking nut, and direct-mounted EVH humbuckers. The controls are top-notch, too: you get a handy 3-way pickup selector switch and 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 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 shredding, 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.
