Exclusively from EVH’s team of talented craftsmen in Japan, EVH brings you the MIJ EVH Signature Wolfgang model, which comes loaded with Eddie Van Halen’s preferred touring specs and the behemoth and versatile sound expected from an instrument bearing his name.
The basswood body features a big leaf maple arched top and five-ply binding, while the bolt-on quartersawn maple neck is sculpted to Eddie’s precise specs, with graphite reinforcement for the ultimate protection against climate-induced warping, hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish for smooth, fast playability and a heel-mount truss rod spoke wheel for quicker neck adjustments when needed.
Designed to enhance playing comfort from chords to leads to bends, the 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 vintage stainless-steel jumbo frets.
Experience monstrous, perfectly-balanced tone with dynamic pick attack via a custom-wound alnico 2 EVH Wolfgang humbucker in the bridge and an alnico 3 custom-wound EVH Wolfgang humbucker in the neck, both controlled by a special reverse oriented three-way toggle switch. The bridge pickup delivers the perfect amount of punch and articulation with sweet sustain and thick chunky rhythms, while the neck pickup serves up quintessential creamy neck tones and endless sustain along with articulate cleans when the volume is rolled down.
A custom-designed EVH BI Tech HPU low friction volume knob creates even-volume tapering for the smoothest volume swells, while the EVH Bourns high friction tone knob will stay in place even if accidentally bumped. A lower bout kill switch mutes the guitar for those popular stutter, rhythmic effects.
Equipped with a “dive-bomb” certified EVH-branded top-mount Floyd Rose bridge, the locking tailpiece features fine tuners for each string and a patented EVH D-Tuna for switching back and forth from drop-D to standard tuning in an instant.
The all-new MIJ Series EVH Signature Wolfgang is offered in Ivory or Stealth Black finishes, each with cream body binding, black knurled control knobs, chrome eye hook strap buttons and black headstocks. The Ivory finish features pearloid block inlays and chrome nut, retainer bar and tuners, while the Stealth finish features pearloid dot inlays, chrome nut, black retainer bar and black tuners.
An EVH Wolfgang hardshell case, EVH leather strap and dog leash strap/eye-bolt brass clasps are included.
