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!

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.

Wow, where has this been all my life?
What is your opinion of this product?
I've owned a lot of guitars before, I got it yesterday, it was love at first sight! I fell asleep with in in my hands last night. The action, the neck, the sound, and it's lighter than my S Series Ibanez. My playing actual improved a major leap. I have had Les Pauls, Custom Strats, and dozens of guitars through my life, but in five minutes I knew I will never sell this one. I bought it used to save it from the pawn shop for a friend, and planned on selling it. This is a keeper!

Amazing Guitar Right Out-of-the-Box!
What is your opinion of this product?
It's true that this item ships without the tremolo bar, I contacted support and they said they will ship one out, a month later I still haven't received, but I messaged again and they said it's coming from EVH Support. The fretboard is really smooth and the action is perfect, so it plays effortlessly, the pickups are beyond amazing and you can get so many different tones from this EVH, and the Drop-Tuna is so great, I absolutely love this guitar!

Awesome when set up.
What is your opinion of this product?
Had to get it to the shop. Needed set up. Definitely not up to Eddie's standards. Now totally awesome since my tech is a EVH guy. Strings, brass block, springs, soaked that dry neck and took down a couple of sharp frets. Read your manual and make sure your tech knows or familiarises himself with the EVH way.
