Signature performance made in the USA.
EVH brings you the Wolfgang USA Edward Van Halen Signature model, loaded with Eddie Van Halen’s most up-to-date specs along with the classic looks and behemoth sound you’ve come to expect.
The basswood body features a big-leaf maple top and five-ply binding, while the bolt-on quartersawn maple neck is sculpted to Eddie’s precise specs, with graphite reinforcement and a hand-rubbed back finish for smooth, fast playability. The compound-radius (12-16 in.) ebony fingerboard has 22 vintage stainless steel frets, pearloid (Ivory finish) or dot (Stealth finish) inlays, and a convenient heel-mounted truss rod adjustment wheel.
Experience scorching and well-balanced tone with a custom-wound alnico 2 EVH Wolfgang Humbucker in the bridge and a newly added alnico 3 custom-wound EVH Wolfgang Humbucker in the neck, both controlled by a special reverse oriented three-way toggle switch. Stutter-stop à la “You Really Got Me” with the red-button kill switch and play “Cathedral” without any crackle or pop, courtesy of the EVH Custom High Friction (Tone) Pot and an EVH “HPU” or High Performance Upgrade, custom-made Low Friction (Volume) Pot.
Sturdy and steadfast, the EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo provides endless sustain and precise tuning regardless of how many dive bombs you rip or how drastically you attack your whammy-bar. The EVH D-Tunaretunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger, with a low-friction volume control for smooth swells and a high-friction tone control that prevents accidental tone shifting.
Boasts elegant and classic style in Ivory or Stealth with chrome hardware, black speed knobs and dog leash strap/eye-bolt clasps. Hard-shell EVH Striped SKB case and EVH leather strap included.

Comments about EVH Wolfgang USA Edward Van Halen Signature:
This guitar is just out of this world. Definitely a premium buy for experienced guitar players. The new Alnico 3 pickup for the neck has improved the tone quite a bit, making the sound clearer in the low frequencies. Great for clean, rhythm, and lead guitar. Works very well with my JVM 410HJS. The only issue I have had is with the action. I like really low action, but the guitar won´t let you take it below 1 mm without having the bridge tilted towards the neck. But, it is still pretty easy to play fast runs, because the neck is quite comfortable, has a clear hand rubbed oil finish, and the frets are pretty soft. It makes bending very comfortable as well.
So far, loving my new Wolfgang. I have a 2001 Peavey Wolfgang and a 2015 EVH Wolfgang Special MIM, and I can say the USA signature model, with the ebony fretboard, new EVH humbuckers, new chrome Floyd Rose and vintage stainless steel frets has the best tone by far.
