What Haworth Guitars say:
The EVH Wolfgang Custom Relic USA Electric Guitar is an awesome USA Custom Wolfgang model by EVH.
At Haworth Guitars we love this EVH Custom Wolfgang Relic Guitar's compound-radius ebony fingerboard, fast-feeling mahogany set-neck, heavy relic finishing and powerful Direct Mount Wolfgang Humbucker pickups.
What EVH has to say:
EVH presents the Wolfgang Custom Relic® U.S.A.—a perfect combination of vintage-style, modern design elements and heavy-relic simulated wear and tear destined to become a “future classic” instrument.
In a first for a Wolfgang guitar model, its mahogany set neck is crafted with a vintage-style ’50s-era neck profile that imparts a classically comfortable playing feel.
The neck also features a hand-oiled heavy-relic finish that evokes countless battle-hardened hours of play.
The distinctive Wolfgang body has a 1.5”-thick mahogany core with a half-inch-thick arched maple top (AAA maple on Vintage Burst model) and aged black-and-white binding.
The compound-radius ebony fingerboard (12”-16”) has 22 vintage-style stainless steel frets, elegant mother-of-pearl block inlays and aged white binding.
Other features include two direct-mount Wolfgang Zebra humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching, two Bourns 500k low-friction volume potentiometers, two Bourns 250k high-friction tone potentiometers, dual graphite neck reinforcement rods, Floyd Rose® R2 locking nut, truss rod adjustment wheel at the butt end of the neck, TonePros® adjustable Tune-o-Matic-style bridge and Schaller® fine-tuning tailpiece, Schaller® chrome string retainer bar on headstock, and more.
Available in Black and Gold gloss relic finishes.
