EVH Wolfgang Special 6-String Electric Guitar with Maple Neck (Right-Handed, Deep Purple Metallic)

Road-tested in arenas around the world, the EVH Wolfgang Special 6-String Electric Guitar in Deep Purple Metallic color 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 satin urethane finish on the back. Primed for high performance, energetic riffing, and blazing leads, the 12-16 inch compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays. Truss rod adjustments have also never been easier thanks to a spoke wheel conveniently located at the base of the neck.

Custom-Designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 Humbucking Pickups

A pair of flagship custom-designed 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.

Attractive Finish

Spotlight-ready, the Wolfgang Special is available in a Deep Purple Metallic finish with a matching headstock. It features a cream body binding and chrome hardware.

12-16 Compound Radius Ebony Fingerboard

The innovative 12-16 inch compound radius design features a fingerboard that gradually flattens toward the heel from its smaller and more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for unparalleled comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and precise shred articulation and bending near the heel. A premium wood, ebony has very tight wood grains and creates a slick and fast-playing surface. Ebony fingerboards are known for their clear and crisp attack and are favored by guitarists looking for a sharp top end, pleasing brightness, and articulate mid-range.

22 Jumbo Frets

Versus a 24-fret neck, the design of a 22-fret axe shifts the neck pickup slightly 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.

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.

Versatile Switching and Controls

This model comes complete with a versatile control layout. Explore the tonal landscape with the three-way toggle switch, which in position one engages the bridge pickup for robust rhythm riffing. Position two engages both pickups, while position three’s neck pickup is ideal for all your blistering solo needs. The volume knobs house a 500K EVH Bourns low friction pot with a treble bleed circuit for seamless swells, while the tone control with 250K EVH Bourns high friction pot keeps the knobs acutely dialed in.
