What Haworth Guitars say:
The EVH Wolfgang Special Electric Guitar is an awesome Wolfgang model by EVH.
At Haworth Guitars we love this EVH Wolfgang Special Guitar's arched basswood body, compound-radius ebony fingerboard, 22 jumbo frets, fast-feeling quartersawn maple neck and powerful Direct Mount Wolfgang Humbucker pickups.
What EVH has to say:
Road-tested in arenas around the world, the Wolfgang® Special is a purebred music-making machine, designed with stunning style, giant sound and high-speed playability.
The Wolfgang Special features a basswood body with an arched top and a robust graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck, carved and rolled to Eddie Van Halen’s exacting specifications and with a hand-rubbed urethane back finish.
Primed for high performance, energetic riffing and blazing leads, its 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays. Truss rod adjustments have also never been easier thanks to a spoke wheel conveniently located at the base of the neck.
A pair of flagship custom designed EVH® Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking pickups is mounted directly to the body, providing dynamic yet articulate voicing, as well as endless sustain for power chords and melody lines.
A sturdy and dependable EVH-branded Floyd Rose® locking trem and Floyd Rose locking nut work in tandem for precise tuning even with extreme changes in pitch, while the EVH D-Tuna® retunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger, with a low-friction volume control for smooth swells and a high-friction tone control that prevents accidental tone shifting.
Spotlight-ready, the Wolfgang Special is offered in a handful of eye-catching finishes with matching headstocks, attractive single-ply body binding and black or chrome hardware.
