Product Description

Over 35 years of Eddie Van Halen’s experience, knowledge and experimentation have been distilled into the Wolfgang Special. Tested, tweaked, and refined on the road, this purebred music-making machine places the same highly responsive performance and sound in your hands. With stunning style, giant sound and high-speed playability along with player-oriented features, this electric guitar is ready to crank out some serious rock.
 
EVH Wolfgang Special Electrical Guitar with Floyd Rose and D-Tuna Features

  • Basswood body
  • Direct Mount Wolfgang Zebra Humbucking pickups
  • Maple neck and fingerboard
  • EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo
  • EVH D-Tuna system – can quickly retune to Drop-D and back
  • Low-friction volume knobs
The robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications—supports a speedy 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard, facilitating energetic riffing and blazing leads. Twenty-two jumbo frets take every bend with ease without affecting the guitar’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. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane your whammy-bar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger, making this the only electric guitar you’ll need onstage (your tech will thank you, trust us).
 
Every component of the guitar has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing. 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. The EVH DNA injected into this monster of a guitar makes the Wolfgang Special a hard-rocking machine that begs to be unchained so you can tear it up!

Terrible.
What is your opinion of this product?
Went through (2). Returned the first with issues, it's replacement was just as bad. Finish flaws, terrible setup, and cheap, cheap, cheap Licensed Floyd Rose. Very poor quality, tuning stability was worst I've experienced in quite some time. I'll go with Schecter or ESP, thank you. Their top-shelf instruments from World Music in South Korea put Mexican Fender products to shame. Far superior quality.

Not as good as I hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
Did not work out of the box, poor quality control. Not worth the price. Cheap hardware. Saddles had to be shimmed, neck had to be shimmed, frets had to be leveled. So yeah, get the standard version. The speacial is essentially the same except you get a carved top and the deluna. Not really worth the extra $400

Fantastic Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Was really shocked by the quality of this guitar. Absolutely love the neck. It feels so good. Was fully expecting to have to replace the pickups on this but they are really very good. Better than the JB's on a couple of my other guitars. If you're hesitant about pulling the trigger on this piece, don't be. It really is a great little guitar. After some experimentation, I've even got the D-Tuna set up perfectly. This is a workhorse of a guitar.

Something Unique and Fresh
What is your opinion of this product?
After researching online at several different stores and youtube reviews, I decided to purchase an EVH Wolfgang from AMS. Why? Because they have top customer service reviews and many options for you to be able to purchase the gear you want. Not to mention they give you an extra year warranty on the product you purchase. The EVH Wolfgang Special is very light in compariosn to others in it’s class, the neck is fast and form fitting to your hand. The sound from the Hot Pickups are exactly what you expect and amazing. The EVH tremolo and D-Tuna work flawlessly and stay in tune like it’s meant too. Totally recommend this product if your looking for a Rock machine and this company for any of your gear needs.
