An electrifying tribute guitar honoring the Van Halen legacy with contemporary edge.

The EVH SA-126 Special semi-hollow electric guitar delivers a tone that breaks new ground. Designed by Wolfgang Van Halen himself, this signature model combines the warmth and resonance of a semi-hollowbody with the high-performance playability EVH is known for. Inspired by Eddie Van Halen's legendary "Bumblebee" guitar, the shred-ready neck lets you blaze up and down the fingerboard. The basswood center block and mahogany body resonate fully to produce rich, complex tones. Visually stunning with a figured maple top, this innovative guitar gives you a versatile voice to forge your own sound.

A Neck Built for Speed

The SA-126's neck profile emulates the iconic "Bumblebee" guitar, offering a thin yet wide shredder neck ideal for fast playing. Made of smooth maple, the neck glides under your fingers for liquid legato runs and tapping passages. The ebony fingerboard adds warmth while providing a slick surface. With 22 jumbo frets, you have ample room to explore the upper registers. The SA-126 delivers high performance in a striking semi-hollow package.

Resonant Tonewood Body

At the heart of the SA-126's expansive voice is its tonewood body. The basswood center block, hand-selected by Eddie Van Halen himself, resonates fully to produce rich lows and a throaty midrange. Maple top, mahogany sides and back adds balanced warmth and articulation. Together, these woods create an acoustic-like resonance in a guitar built for aggression and attitude. The SA-126 gives you huge semi-hollow tone that cuts through loud and clear.

Modern Hardware and Pickups

The SA-126 comes equipped with high-output pickups and a Wilkinson WV6SB bridge for sustain and tuning stability. Coil-tapping the bridge pickup lets you switch from hot humbucker tones to a crisp single-coil voice at the flip of a switch. An independent tone control for each pickup provides extensive tonal shaping. The SA-126 delivers a range of tones, from vintage warmth to contemporary crunch. A master volume, three-way toggle and single volume/tone control for the neck pickup complete the modern control layout.

Honor the legacy of Eddie Van Halen with the EVH SA-126 Special semi-hollow. Built for tone and playability, this signature model lets you forge your own sound with an instrument as innovative as the man who inspired it.
