Anyone familiar with Eddie Van Halen will instantly recognise the finish to this guitar, as it's based on the guitar Eddie was photographed with on the back of the 1979 album Van Halen II, the iconic "Bumblebee". This EVH Wolfgang Special has far more going for it than just the nostalgic finish though.
Everything about this guitar just screams "Speed!" at you. From the arched top body, constructed from basswood, to the ultra-smooth graphite reinforced maple neck and the 12"-16" compound radius maple fretboard. The neck is finished with a urethane gel, for that extra slick feeling. Playing at speed on this guitar feels so natural it's almost frightening.
Top Notch Electronics
The beautifully constructed and ultra-fast body/neck of the guitar are wonderfully complimented by a pair of customer designed EVH Wolfgang humbuckers, mounted directly to the body to provide a range of dynamic and clear tones, not to mention the kind of near-endless sustain that would make Nigel Tufnel (of Spinal Tap fame) weep tears of joy. Whether you want to rock out some meaty chords or ethereal melody lines, the electronics on the EVH Wolfgang Special will certainly help you get there.
Sturdy & Dependable
The EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo bridge and Floyd Rose locking nut combine perfectly to add the finishing touches to this excellent guitar. Working in tandem to increase your sustain posibilities and help you retain accurate tuning, you can feel free to dive bomb to your hearts content with this guitar without having to stop every few songs to re-tune, regardless of how agressive you get with the whammy. Additionally, the bridge comes (as standard) with the now-famous EVH D-Tuna switch, giving you the option of instant drop-D tuning at the flick of a switch, without having to mess around with unlocking the nut or putting the guitar out of tune.
Whether you're a long-time fan of Eddie Van Halen, or you're just looking for a versatile axe with a fun and unique looking finish that you can shred on to your heart's content, then this guitar might well be for you.
