EVH Wolfgang Guitar with Case

From Eddie Van Halen comes a guitar representing over 35 years of cumulative EVH experience and expertise in guitar design, the EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar. Built to Eddie Van Halen's exact specs and using every single feature of the Wolfgang guitars he himself plays onstage and in the studio, the EVH Wolfgang is a bulletproof and beautiful tonal giant of a guitar that takes whatever you can dish out and then asks for more.

"Everything that I've built, destroyed, stumbled onto, learned and experienced is in this guitar," Eddie Van Halen said. Every aspect and component of the EVH Wolfgang has been examined and upgraded to the highest standards possible--stainless steel frets, double-potted custom-wound pickups, five-piece binding on the matching body and headstock, custom-made signature tuning machines and Floyd Rose bridge, low-friction pots, and the list keeps going. EVH left no stone unturned.

Road-Tested By the Man

The process undertaken to develop the EVH Wolfgang took over two years of intense trial-and-error research. The formidable task yielded a series of prototypes that endured a full year of brutal in-concert road testing by Eddie on Van Halen's triumphant 2007-2008 world tour. To prove that the Wolfgang was battle-worthy and could survive the road, performance data was collected from every gig for months and months to establish and confirm consistency and durability.

Features:

- EVH chrome Gotoh tuners with pearl buttons built exclusively for the Wolfgang
- AA birdseye maple fingerboard (ebony fingerboard on Stealth Black model)
- Quartersawn maple neck reinforced with 2 graphite rods
- Stainless steel vintage size frets that are practically indestructible and super-resistant to wear spots, nicks and dings
- Hard-mounted custom-designed EVH humbucking pickups
- Arched AA maple top with 5-piece binding
- EVH Floyd Rose tremolo unit with EVH D-Tuna designed exclusively for the Wolfgang
- Bourns low-friction pots: Custom-designed EVH volume and tone controls that are available only on the Wolfgang

This guitar is great Mr. Van Halen did a very good job on the design of this instrument from the double graphite rod and a truss rod in the neck to the fully voiced humbuckers. The thing has ultimate sustain
