A fantastic player's guitar engineered by one of the Rock's greatest innovators.
Years in the making from Eddie Van Halen guitars, the EVH Wolfgang Special features a flat AA maple top with 5-piece binding, a basswood core, and a quartersawn maple neck that is reinforced with two graphite rods. The AA bird's-eye maple fingerboard has a 12" to 16" compound radius and is dressed with stainless steel vintage-size frets that are practically indestructible. The frets on the EVH Wolfgang Special electric guitar are super resistant to wear spots, nicks and dings, and provide for smooth feel and bending action that doesn't wear out.
Custom-designed EVH humbucking pickups are hard-mounted to the body and are wired to Bourns low-friction pots. These custom designed volume and tone controls are available only on the EVH Wolfgang guitars.
The EVH Floyd Rose tremolo unit is the first ever signature Floyd Rose tremolo bridge. It was exclusively designed for the EVH Wolfgang Special guitar and comes with the EVH D-Tuna that lets you instantly go to a drop-D tuning. EVH chrome Gotoh tuners with pearl buttons are built exclusively for the Wolfgang guitar.
The Eddie Van Halen guitar has a thin skin finish that allows for the inherent tone and resonance of the wood to dominate the overall sound of the guitar. Unpainted body cavities allow for the wood to naturally breath and age, further adding to the character and quality of tone in this magnificent electric guitar.
Exclusively to the EVH Wolfgang guitar is its custom-made molded SKB case. It is durable, lightweight and compact. With plush lining, TSA-approved latches and Eddie's trademark stripes in 3D, your Wolfgang electric guitar will be well protected on the road and in the air for decades to come.
The EVH Wolfgang guitar is built to Eddie Van Halen's exact specs and has every single feature of the Wolfgang guitars he himself plays onstage and in the studio. It's exactly what he uses.

Comments about EVH Wolfgang Special Left-Handed Electric Guitar:
Overall, a VERY nice guitar. Craftsmanship shows and the action on the fretboard is outstanding. A bit more attention to quality control on the fret edges, and it would be a TEN, for sure!
As a guitar, the build is very solid, the action is great, the overall quality of the guitar is very nice, so it is ridiculous to double the cost to get the American-made one, when this Japanese-made one is almost identical. The only problem I have, and this is probably not the fault of the actual manufacturer, is that the fret edges are so sharp I could cut myself every time I play. I assume that, because this guitar was made in a moist environment, like mainland Japan, that the trip to Las Vegas, in the desert, seriously dries out the wood, and it contracts, causing the frets to stick out on the edges. Hopefully, when I call Fender, they understand and tell me where I can go and get this rectified. It makes playing the guitar difficult, worrying about whether or not I am going to cut myself...
I can't give it a 10, because the sharp-edged ferts, but otherwise it is very well built and a solid axe!
I think $899-$999 maybe, but $1500 is a bit high, especially considering, again, the frets....
