OVERVIEW

A purebred music-making machine.

Road-tested in arenas around the world, the Wolfgang Special is a purebred music-making machine, and new for 2016, comes in an elegant El Natural finish richly accented by tobacco-stained back and sides with a matching natural headstock.

This EVH Wolfgang Special has an arched-top basswood body with a robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications. The speedy 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard facilitates energetic riffing and blazing leads, while its 22 jumbo frets take every bend with ease without affecting the instrument’s natural tone, allowing every note to ring true. The crystal clear Custom Designed EVH Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the basswood body, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. 

Every component of the guitar has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing. For instance, the rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Trem combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane your whammybar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna retunes to Drop- D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger. The low-friction volume knob lets you perform speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts as your picking hand flies furiously across the strings. 

With elegant style, giant sound and player-oriented features, the EVH Wolfgang Special El Natural is ready for some serious rock. Case sold separately.
