The EVH Wolfgang Special is a purebred music-making machine that is now available in four new eye-popping finishes for 2016: EL Natural, Matte Army Drab, Satin Red and Gold.
The robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications—supports a speedy 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard, facilitating energetic riffing and blazing leads. Twenty-two jumbo frets take every bend with ease without affecting the instrument’s natural tone, allowing every note to ring true. The crystal clear Custom Designed EVH® Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the basswood body, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Trem combines with the Floyd Rose Locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane the whammy-bar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger, while the low-friction volume knob allows for speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts during fast and furious playing.
