As a self-described "tone chaser," Eddie Van Halen is notorious for modifying and customizing his guitars -- often beyond all recognition. The results of EVH's ongoing pursuit have always found a home in the Wolfgang series of guitars, but there's never been a Wolfgang quite like the USA Custom. This remarkable model is Eddie Van Halen's personal tribute to the short-scale set-neck guitars of the late 1950s. While the original Wolfgang has a 25.5" scale length, the Custom has a shorter 24.5" scale length: a time-tested short-scale design that allows for longer reaches. Eddie also chose specific tonewoods for the Wolfgang USA Custom model: a mahogany set neck, solid mahogany body, and 1/2" flame maple top. It all adds up to a guitar that looks and feels like a vintage classic -- but with hot-rodded EVH pickups that are born to rock.

The Wolfgang: Eddie's Signature Series

Eddie Van Halen has always fielded requests from fans that want to play the same gear he uses. Rest assured: the Wolfgang is it. Named after EVH's son, Wolfgang, Eddie's line of signature guitars is the result of a long collaboration with Fender and intense road-testing on Van Halen's 2007-2008 concert tour. "Every aspect and component of this guitar has been examined and upgraded to the highest standards possible...We left no stone unturned," said Eddie. Whether you're new to the Wolfgang, or a longtime collector of EVH signature guitars, the beautiful vintage-style Wolfgang USA Custom is a whole new way to display your EVH love.

EVH's Take on a Vintage Classic

As a distinctive take on the original Wolfgang, the made-in-the-USA Custom model has a TonePros "tune-o-matic-style" bridge with fine tuners on the tailpiece for extreme tuning stability. Vintage enthusiasts and anyone looking for a warm, bluesy tone will love the individual tone and volume knobs for each of two Wolfgang Custom nickel-covered humbucking pickups -- a feature not found on any other Wolfgang. A Wolfgang that truly stands out from the pack, the USA Custom also features an elegant ebony fretboard with stainless steel frets and trapezoidal mother-of-pearl inlays.

Features:

- Mahogany body with 1/2" flame maple arched top
- Mahogany 24.75" scale length set neck
- Compound radius (12"-16") ebony fretboard
- Mother-of-pearl inlays on fretboard and headstock
- 22 vintage stainless steel frets
- Seven-ply binding on body and headstock
- Stop-tail TonePros bridge with fine tuners
- Dual Wolfgang Custom nickel-covered humbucking pickups
- Two EVH custom low-friction 500k volume pots
- Two EVH custom high-friction 250k tone pots

If you love vintage instruments, but appreciate the style and uncompromising quality of Eddie Van Halen's signature axe, the Wolfgang Custom USA is your dream guitar. zZounds is an authorized dealer of EVH products.
