What EVH has to say:
The One That Started It All
Since its launch in 2007, the EVH brand has had one mission—to take the tools Eddie Van Halen uses to create his groundbreaking guitar work and place them in your hands.
Over 35 years of innovation and experience were injected into the creation of the original Wolfgang USA, which continues to unleash pure unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll power, titanic sound, speedy playability and stunning spotlight-ready style.
“Everything that I’ve built, destroyed, stumbled onto, learned and experienced is in this guitar,” Eddie Van Halen said. “Every aspect and component of this guitar 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, new low-friction pots, and the list keeps going. We left no stone unturned.”
The EVH Wolfgang USA features a basswood body with arched maple top, bolt-on quartersawn maple neck, 12” – 16”-inch compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage stainless steel frets, direct mounted EVH Wolfgang Zebra Humbucking pickups, EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Tremolo with EVH D-Tuna®, EVH Branded Gotho® High Ratio die-cast tuners with white pearloid buttons, and mother-of-pearl block inlays (dot inlays on Stealth finish).
