Ready for anything. The Wolfgang Special is pure hard-rock heritage. But thanks to its Wolfgang alnico 2 humbuckers, it's no one-trick pony. Mounted directly to the Special's basswood body, the Wolfgang pickups pack just the right amount of punch for hard-hitting heavy metal chuggers and fleet-fingered virtuosos alike. However, there's a subtlety to their high output performance that lets twinkling cleans sing with classic EVH character. Exquisite, versatile Humbuckers.
Live the legend. From Eruption to Jump to Hot for Teacher, Eddie Van Halen's signature soloing was his trademark. Follow in his footsteps with a guitar designed to never hold you back. Enjoy refined response all along the ebony fretboard, thanks to its compound 12"-16" radius, which flattens towards the heel for lightening-fast finger placement. On top of that, chunky jumbo frets ensure your big solo sings true every time. Carved and rolled to EVH's personal profile, the quartersawn maple neck features a hand-rubbed satin urethane finish, ideal for fretboard acrobats with a need for speed.
The complete crowd-pleaser. EVH's shows were a non-stop party from start to finish. Nothing kills the vibe like having to stop to down-tune, especially with a locking trem and nut. Enter the EVH D-Tuna. Attaching to the Wolfgang's Floyd Rose locking tremolo, the ingenious D-Tuna system pushes down on the lowest string's locking screw to instantly raise the pitch by one whole step. Adjust the small set screw to fine tune the pitch change, and you're all set for on-the-fly drop tunings that'll be ready before the drummer gets to "TWO", let alone four!
