EVH Wolfgang Special 6-String Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard (Right-Hand, Satin Surf Green)

Road-tested in arenas around the world, the EVH Wolfgang Special 6-String Electric Guitar in the shade Satin Surf Green is a purebred music-making machine, designed with stunning style, giant sound, and high-speed playability. The Wolfgang Special features a basswood body with an arched top and a robust graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck. The neck is carved and rolled to Eddie Van Halen’s exacting specifications and features a hand-rubbed urethane back finish. Primed for high performance, energetic riffing, and blazing leads, the 12-16 inch compound radius maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays. Truss rod adjustments have also never been easier thanks to a spoke wheel conveniently located at the base of the neck.

Outstanding Features

A pair of flagship custom-designed black EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the body, providing dynamic yet articulate voicing, as well as 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 precise tuning even with extreme changes in pitch, while the EVH D-Tuna retunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger. The volume knob with treble bleed circuit has a 500K EVH Bourns low friction pot for smooth swells and a tone control knob with a 250K Bourns high friction tone pot that prevents accidental tone shifting.

12-16 Inch Compound Radius Maple Fingerboard with 22 Jumbo Frets

The innovative 12-16 inch compound radius maple fingerboard design gradually flattens toward the heel from its smaller and more rounded profile at the nut for unparalleled comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and seamless bending near the heel. Maple is a dense wood that produces bright, snappy tones, articulate notes with bite, and a tight low end. Versus a 24-fret neck, a 22-fret layout shifts the neck pickup farther away from the bridge, centering it at the ‘sweet spot’ and resulting in an overall warmer tone. The jumbo fret wire slightly increases the distance between the string and fingerboard for seamless and comfortable bends.

Direct Mount EVH Wolfgang Humbucking Pickups

Not all humbuckers are created equal. Direct mount EVH Wolfgang humbuckers with Alnico 2 magnets are hotter and harness Eddie’s scorching signature lead tone that captivated the world of rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘70s and ‘80s. These pickups deliver rich harmonics, cutting highs and snarling mids in spades.

EVH-Branded Floyd Rose Locking Trem, R2 Locking Nut, and EVH D-Tuna

Eddie Van Halen was the first player to popularize the innovative Floyd Rose locking tremolo, even advising Floyd Rose on his early designs to integrate round disc finger-type tuners that you would see on a cello or violin. Now universally embraced, the EVH-branded Floyd Rose bridge features an EVH logo stamped on the bridge plate, steel saddles, and a solid brass block. The Floyd Rose bridge and R2 (41.8 mm) locking nut is a professional-grade double-locking design that secures the strings in the saddle and nut, providing ultimate tuning stability and dynamic tremolo action. Standard equipment on Eddie’s personal guitars since the early ‘90s, the EVH D-Tuna is a unique patented device that enables players to drop the E to D and back, in an instant.

Heel-Mount Truss Rod Adjustment Spoke Wheel

Humidity and temperature fluctuations wreak havoc on a guitar’s neck. With the truss rod adjustment wheel placed at the heel of the neck, you (or your guitar tech) can quickly insert a 1.5 mm Allen wrench between the strings for seamless neck relief tweaks on the fly.

Attractive Binding and Color Matched Wolfgang Headstock

This Wolfgang Special kicks style up a notch with attractive body binding and a Wolfgang headstock color matched to the body.
