A powerful and stylish electric guitar built to Eddie's specifications.

Designed with input from the legendary guitarist himself, the EVH Wolfgang Special QM electric guitar melds Eddie Van Halen's uncompromising vision with playability innovations. Powerful EVH Wolfgang humbucking pickups yield articulate tone with endless sustain, while the slim maple neck is carved and rolled precisely to Eddie's favored shape. The 12"–16" compound radius fingerboard allows effortless riffing and soloing anywhere on the neck. With a Floyd Rose locking tremolo bridge, the guitar stays in tune even after wild whammy acrobatics. The lightweight basswood body with arched quilt maple top resonates freely, unleashing full-bodied tone. Grab the Special QM and harness the spirit of EVH.

Versatile and Articulate EVH Wolfgang Humbucking Pickups

The Special QM gets its core tone from a pair of custom-voiced EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking pickups, providing focused mids, tight lows and singing highs. From rich rhythms to singing leads, these pickups impress with their dynamic response and clarity. The bridge pickup has plenty of cut and growl for aggressive riffing, while the neck pickup delivers smooth, vocal-like tones. With the three-way toggle switch, blend both pickups and uncover a wealth of usable in-between tones. This versatile tonal palette lets you craft your signature sound, evoking vintage Van Halen or your own modern twist.

Smooth Maple Neck Carved to Eddie's Exact Shape Preferences

For fast, comfortable playing, the Special QM has a quartersawn maple neck with Eddie's preferred slim, rounded profile. Meticulously shaped by hand, the back of the neck has a smooth satin finish that maximizes playing ease. jumbo frets allow effortless bending anywhere on the fingerboard, while the graphite reinforcement provides stability under the rigors of touring. The heel-mount truss rod spoke wheel offers easy access for tweaks and adjustments. With its natural feel and ergonomic contours, this maple neck invites inspiration.

Compound Radius Fingerboard for Fast, Comfortable Playing

Shredding up and down the neck is a breeze thanks to the compound radius fingerboard. With a 12" radius at the nut, it flattens out to 16" at the body end. This provides excellent note articulation when soloing up high, along with comfortable chording down low. The smooth maple surface allows super-fast runs with the polished feel of a well-worn favorite. Combined with the slim neck shape and jumbo frets, the compound radius fingerboard makes this Wolfgang a speed demon.

Reliable Floyd Rose Tremolo Stays in Tune

Dive bombs, squeals and extreme whammy tricks are no match for the Floyd Rose locking tremolo bridge. Made under license by Floyd Rose, this rugged trem system uses a locking nut and string clamps to maintain tuning stability, even with heavy use. The EVH D-Tuna allows dropping to D tuning and back at the flick of a lever. Whether you utilize subtle shimmers or radical pitch effects, this tremolo system won't let you down. Unleash your creativity, knowing the Special QM will stay rock-solid in tune.

Lightweight Basswood Body with Arched Quilt Maple Top

The basswood body keeps the Special QM lightweight on your shoulder and lively with resonance. Combined with the arched quilt maple top, you get excellent tonal projection balanced with comfortable ergonomics. The deep double cutaway allows easy upper fret access while adding style. Available in eye-catching finishes like Chlorine Burst, the sculpted body turns heads on stage. Designed for hours of inspired playing, the Special QM has the sonic chops and playing comfort that today's gigging guitarists demand.
