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.

Built for the southpaws, the Wolfgang Special LH 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 finish. Primed for 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 are mounted directly to the body, providing dynamic yet articulate voicing, as well as endless sustain for powerful 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.

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreOshawa, Ontario
I bought this guitar in October. I had a kill switch installed right away. I have been playing Rock / Metal guitar for 40 years. I currently own several guitars including an Ibanez Prestige, Hagstrom, Jackson Soloist Pro, American Strat, Gibson etc. How do they compare to this guitar? It doesn't, it simply rules every guitar I have ever played. Wicked doesn't even begin to describe this guitar. The great EVH designed and tested this, and quite simply it is the BEST guitar on the market. Perfect weight distribution, unbelievable neck, high output pickups and absolutely gorgeous finish. Simply put, if you want an amazing guitar that plays like a dream and actually makes you play / sound better, this is your guitar. I will be adding more to my collection as they become available again.
