Road-tested in arenas around the world, the EVH Wolfgang Special offers giant sound, ultra-high-speed playability and spotlight-ready style.
The EVH Wolfgang Special features an arched top basswood body with a robust graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck, carved and rolled to Eddie’s exacting specifications. Primed for energetic riffing and blazing leads, its 12”-16” compound radius maple (ebony on Stealth finish only) fingerboard has a hand-rubbed back finish with 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays.
A pair of flagship custom designed EVH® Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the body, providing dynamic yet articulate voicing, as well as near-endless sustain for powerful chords and melody lines.
A sturdy and dependable EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem and Floyd Rose® locking nut work in tandem for endless sustain and precise tuning, while truss rod adjustments have never been easier with a convenient spoke wheel at the base of the neck.
This purebred music-making machine is offered in a variety of eye-catching finishes with matching headstocks and black hardware. Unique from the other finishes, the elegant Wolfgang Special El Natural is also richly accented by tobacco-stained back and sides.
