NAMM 2013  What could be cooler than meeting Eddie Van Halen?  Meeting Eddie Van Halen then getting to play his guitar!   That’s exactly what happened last night in a little behind the scenes moment at NAMM 2013.  This is the EVH Wolfgang LT.  The “LT” stands for Larry Thomas, (parent company) Fender’s CEO and genuine guitar guy.  Larry worked with Ed and lead EVH builder Chip Ellis to create this new model that is perhaps the finest in EVH history.  Watch the video for Chip’s explanation on what makes this new model so awesome.

So what’s new?  You’ll notice right away the fixed bridge with fine tuners.  It’s also hard to miss the very “familiar” vibe to the dual humbuckers, knobs, and ‘burst, and that’s because Ed had a certain vintage 1958 solidbody of his in mind with this EVH update.  The neck is patterned directly after that vintage ‘Burst, and it’s chunky and awesome.  The neck heel has a very fast carve, allowing you to get right up there.  The top spec EVH Wolfgang LT will be the aged version seen here in Ed’s hands.  This guitar is his; we played it and and it’s phenomenal   We tried to buy it, but Ed won’t give it up.  Oh well, it will be worth the wait!  You can get yours at The Music Zoo later this year.
