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!

I like the Wolfgang guitars, the way they feel and play. This product got four stars from me because of the switch to the pickups are wired backwards. My USA Wolfgang model is wired the neck pickup the switch Is up an the bridge pickup the switch is down.

The Wolfgang Special is a rock n roll workhorse!

Product Review

I've owned several Wolfgangs through the years, including a USA model. But I keep coming back to the Wolfgang Special Stealth because it rocks hardest of all! I prefer ebony fingerboards for the bite they give when fretting single notes or chords. The playing dynamics are great, and the tone of the EVH humbuckers are right in the sweet spot to my ears. Whether you're trying to imitate EVH himself, or just appreciate a satisfying and enjoyable rock tone, the Wolfgang Special Stealth is the real deal.

Great guitar

Product Review

I love this guitar. I have owned many strats, a les Paul, a custom Carvin, and an EVH standard. This guitar can compete with the best of them. The guitar is solid and cosmetically flawless. The neck is smooth and fast. The frets are rounded with no sharp edges. The guitar is light, with the basswood body, but well balanced. The sustain is good. The pickups sound good, however I will likely upgrade them soon. The guitar did require setting up on arrival, but any new guitar does. The floyd rose bridge works great once setup. I had to buy extra springs to hold the bridge down while playing, the guitar only comes with 2 (not enough tension even after tightening the spring claw). I love this guitar, it does everything I want and looks good doing it.

If you don't have one of these, well get on it IT'S AMAZING

Product Review

This thing is a monster. Some things they don't tell you in the description is that when you buy this guitar you automatically play better. IT'S LIKE MAGIC... not kidding... The volume pot is so sensitive makes doing tricks so freaking easy. EVH has out done everyone, he has thought of everything. From the D-TUNA to the super hot pickups, take it out of the box and start tapping. The neck is supper slick and you can almost push the wammy through the pickups when it comes back, its perfectly in tune.. This is a must for all guitar players...

I love the guitar. I have several other one and this one just adds more badass to my collection. I’m glad I got the special version of this, as I am very happy with the way it plays, sounds, and looks.

Terrible.

Product Review

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.
