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!

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.

Awesome fiddle worth the $$$$ !!
What is your opinion of this product?
First off I love this guitar ! As a Les Paul/ Marshall straight up guitarist for most of the 22 yr. and change I've been playing I can say it's a welcome change of pace. The finish on the Wolfgang Special Stealth I have is stellar. The guitar has so much sustain and resonance it's unbelievable, and the tone is monsterous ! The pickups are hot and articulate your pick attack and notes extremely well. It's very easy to play and to took some adjusting going from that ball bat neck I have on my Les Paul Classic to the Wolfgang. Overall I'm a happy customer, I still have My LP and My Marshalls. Just ordered the 5150iii 50 watt head to compliment both guitars so let's see what kinda sonic greatness I can wring outta these things !

EVH Wolfgang Special
What is your opinion of this product?
Ok so AMS awesome experience with purchase and shipping. Actually double boxed and sent not like the reviews of EVH guitars being send in original box! Now guitar is the stealth special, I have seen reviews say it is a flat top and I can tell you my made in Mexico stealth is not a flat top guitar, but don't know if it is flamed or what due to finish. Frets and case! This is my only complaint of this guitar. It should have SS frets for a $1000 guitar but I knew it didn't when I ordered it. Secondly, no gig bag or case? Really I think this $1000 price point is the difference between musician and student and it should have some type of case, but again my own feelings. The guitar is spot on, finish is awesome! Pick ups are amazing!!! Floyd and D Tuna, again are amazing and this guitar just feels like a high end guitar! I'm a happy customer even with my issues of frets and case. I would but another without any hesitation.
