EVH® Guitars are designed by and built for Eddie Van Halen, one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time, but also one of the most meticulous and demanding of his equipment.  So when Eddie announces a lower-priced version of his flagship Wolfgang guitars, you know he’s crossed the “t”s and dotted the “i”s.  We can’t publish everything we know about the new Wolfgang Special here, just yet, but you can call us for more information.  The Wolfgang Special is a flat-top version of the USA Wolfgang, made in Japan using high-quality US parts and pickups.  It will be available in the three traditional Wolfgang colors, Black, Vintage White, and Tobacco burst, and comes in a EVH-striped SKB case.  It’s got low-friction pots, a Floyd Rose tremolo with the D-Tuna® system, and a quartersawn maple neck with a birdseye maple fingerboard.  There looks to be a lot of bang for the buck here.  Specs and more pics after the jump.  Get in touch with us for more info.
