EVH release brand new Wolfgang Special Striped model. This Wolfgang Special has some upgrade mods and, for the first time on a production model, comes in the famous Red, Black and White Striped colours that pays homage to Eddie Van Halen’s original “Frankenstein” guitar…

Over 35 years of Eddie Van Halen’s experience, knowledge and experimentation have been distilled into the Wolfgang Special. Tested, tweaked, and refined on the road, this pure-bred music-making machine places the same highly responsive performance and sound in your hands. With classic red, black and white striped style that pays homage to Van Halen’s original guitar, giant sound and high-speed playability along with player-oriented features, this latest take on the Wolfgang Special is ready to crank out some serious rock.

Features an arched top Basswood body with a robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn Maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications. The speedy 12”-16” compound radius Ebony fingerboard facilitates energetic riffing and blazing leads, and is the only Wolfgang Special finish to feature an Ebony fingerboard besides the Stealth model. Also new for a Wolfgang Special model is its chrome hardware and non-matching black headstock, while other familiar traits include 22 jumbo frets and heel-mounted spoke wheel for easy truss rod adjustment. The crystal clear Custom Designed EVH Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are direct mounted, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. Every component of the guitar has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing.

The low-friction volume knob lets you perform speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts as your picking hand flies furiously across the strings. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Locking Trem combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane your whammy-bar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna® retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger, making this the only guitar you’ll need onstage.
