The EVH Wolfgang WG Standard boasts the same style and massive sound Eddie Van Halen created, at a price the everyday musician can afford.
Offering many of the blazing features as its more expensive brethren, the Wolfgang WG Standard features a basswood body with special “comfort cut” forearm contour for max playing ease, quilt maple top on transparent finishes, one-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods to hold strong against the ravages of temperature and humidity, a convenient truss ross adjust spoke wheel at the base of the neck, and a speedy 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard with comfortably rolled edges and 22 jumbo frets.
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 a unique 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.
Decked out for playing performance and comfort, the Wolfgang WG Standard is available in a variety of finishes with black headstocks and either black or black chrome (Trans finishes only) hardware.
