What’s Larry’s Lab?  Fender’s CEO Larry Thomas is a guitar guy.  It’s obvious when you talk to him the passion that he has for the history of the brand.  The visions he has for the future of the products are on display in Larry’s Lab, a very special room we were ushered into at NAMM 2012.  The guitars in this room have been commsioned by Larry to push the envelope.  They run the gamut from wild design studies to familiar Fender shapes with new manufacturing techniques under the hood.  These are all one-off prototypes; we got authorization from Larry himself to show them to you here.  

We can’t divulge too many details about this one, but it’s clearly a new EVH Wolfgang.  What we can tell you is that the body is thinner, and therefore the whole package is lighter.  There are other tweaks that builder Chip Ellis (pictured below) wasn’t ready to let out of the bag just yet, but as with everything EVH, they are subtle improvements that have come directly from the experience of Eddie Van Halen.  Anyway, who’s ready for a more svelte EVH axe?  Yes, please.
