    Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

    This is probably the most comfortable guitar I have ever owned. I especially love the neck. The guitar has overall great weight, great balance, great tone. Once I pick it up, I don't want to put it down. Very fun to play. The D-Tuna is especially cool. You can go back and forth between an E and a drop D on the low E string and the guitar stays in tune! In my opinion, it's the best guitar you can get for the price. Highly recommended!

      Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

      I've been writing and recording music since the 1990s. I started playing because of Eddie. Back then I watched Live Without a Net three million times, haha. Loved it! I had all the same gear Eddie has played and used since the 90's. I am so used to the toggle switch being reversed from the les paul style that its awkward to play a guitar with the toggle switch set like a les paul. So when I received my new EVH Wolfgang Special I was surprised that the toggle was set up like a paul. I traded emails for about a week with EVH. The representative told me that the switch is supposed to be just like the les paul on this model. The owners manual states the opposite. Also I sent a link to EVH from the demo guy on youtube playing the model I just bought and using the toggle the same way Eddie does. So the quality is bad down there in Mexico. The toggle was a problem, the back cavity is not supposed to be painted but is heavily painted, there is on little place around the back without paint but someone colored it with a black sharpie, the volume knob that the EVH Japan model used is not on my guitar. Instead of a low friction pot that moves very fast, this is as slow as they come. After I took out the parts from an old Peavey Wolfgang Special, put them in the EVH Mexican model, the guitar plays great! So, if you buy this and your are used to everything working the way the correct way, the way the owners manual claims, you will be upset. I do love the new fret wire.

      Cant imagine how the us model can be better than the lower priced speacial model to justify spending another $1000+ on it.Love the feel of the guitar and way the neck goes into body.Has great harmonics easy to play.

          Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

          I really like this guitar. Bought a blemished model, but seems totally fine. My setup was right on, didn't need to tweak at all. Extremely comfortable to play the entire neck. Very responsive and articulate. Wide range of tones. I've played a Wolfgang USA model and there is little difference between the two in terms of tone or playability (equally good). I like the jumbo frets on this new model. Interesting to see this one actually has a maple top also. Playing side by side with a Les Paul trad pro, the EVH guitar sounds clearer and packs the same punch.

            Setup out of the box was awful. This is common though, you always need to set it up the way you like it. Once I tweaked it and setup the D-tuna properly and brought the action back down to factory specs it simply was fantastic! Has a good mixture of growl vs scream! pickups clean up nicely when dialing back the tone. Jumbo Frets are fantastic! (not stainless like the previous Wolfangs, but much bigger than vintage style frets) Love this guitar!

              Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

              I have been watching for this model for a long time. Currently they are hard to find new. I took a chance on a blemished model from Musician's Friend. It essentially was mint. The bridge pickup through a Marshall JVM 410h is amazing. The neck pickup is a bit cold/sterile. Both pickups together actually sound better than the neck position. The build quality is amazing. The out of the box setup was not the best, but it is not a hard guitar to set up. The neck is nice..

              This is a very fine instrument, better made than its Japanese model. Wood, materials, over all feel, everything except the paint job in the head stock is far better.

              Definitely a keeper an to use as main guitar. I bought the vintage white model and its beautiful.

              I am a rosewood guy, if EVH decided to make them with this option, I bet they will sell a lot more.

                Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar:

                Had this about a week and really like it. Floyd Rose is not floating, so it only dives. Prevents intonation issues when double bending, etc.

                The D-Tuna is great. I play a lot of drop D and the thing works perfectly.

                The action was a little high for my taste and the manual states that 1.5 mm from 12th fret is "as designed". I've lowered it to my liking by using the included allen wrench and no fret buzz.

                Great looking maple top and finish. No flaws that I have found yet with the construction.

                One weird note is that the docs say the switch is wired "backwards" like EVH likes it. Up is bridge and down is neck pickup. I found the switch to be wired the other way. Don't know if they changed this on purpose or if this was a mistake.

                It doesn't come with a case, and unfortunately the odd shape didn't fit into any of my other guitar cases. I had to use a soft case.

                The Floyd rose is double locking, so string changes are going to be a pain, but the thing DOES NOT come out of tune after slacking the strings completely multiple times.

                I haven't spent enormous time dialing in the tone, but I was able to get all of the sounds I wanted out of it on the fly while jamming.
