OVERVIEW

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 amazing. A nice upgrade on the previous USA Wolfgangs. I think the new Alnico pickup really brings a noticeable tonal improvement, and the addition of the kill switch is just too cool. My guitar arrived with a perfect setup. Low action, smooth neck, tremolo set just right. Love the ebony fretboard and SS frets. Sounds great clean, but it really shines when you crank up the gain and volume. Crazy harmonics and very articulate. I'm playing through an EVH 15 W lunchbox head and 1 x 12 EVH cab. Wouldn't hesitate to buy this one again.

    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.
