EVH Wolfgang WG Standard Silverburst
Unchained performance, priced for the gigging musician! Designed and road-tested by Eddie Van Halen himself, the Wolfgang Standard is ideal for aspiring shredders. Refined by adjusting components and specs until he's satisfied, no piece—large or small—is produced until he personally signs off on it, reflecting his commitment to quality and his connection to the gear that bears his name.
The Wolfgang WG Standard contains many of the same blazing features as its more expensive brethren—a blazing one-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods holds strong against the ravages of temperature and humidity and a speedy 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard with comfortably rolled edges and 22 jumbo frets won't drag your fretting hand down. Dual EVH Wolfgang humbucking pickups mounted directly to the body increase vibration transfer, resulting in sustain for days on end. Two domed control knobs have been dialed-in to Van Halen's exacting specifications—the smooth-feeling 500k pots make it easy to find your sound while retaining the crisp high end sparkle of the EVH Wolfgang pickups. The EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Special bridge and R2® locking nut consistently stay in tune through the deepest whammy dives and horse whinnies.
The uniquely styled Wolfgang body features an ergonomic forearm carve and "belly" cut that bears oversized strap buttons to keep your instrument where it belongs throughout any onstage acrobatics you may indulge in. Full of raw rocking tone—whether played clean or crunchy—with the Wolfgang Standard in your arsenal you won’t be afraid to plug in, turn up and rock out with your pedal to the metal. Six new finishes for 2016—Ferrari Red, Transparent Blue Burst, and Transparent Purple Burst available now. Snow White, Mystic Blue Metallic, and Silverburst coming soon!
