Loaded with player-oriented features and iconic style, the Wolfgang Specal Striped is a highly-responsive and huge-sounding instrument that was born to crank out some serious rock.
Sporting a Red finish with Black and White Stripes, black headstock and chrome hardware, the Wolfang Special Striped features a basswood body with arched top, robust graphite-reinforced quartersawn maple neck—carved and rolled to EVH’s exacting specifications and a speedy 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets for facilitating energetic riffing and blazing leads. A heel-mount truss rod adustment wheel also makes for quick and easy neck relief tweaks, a feature guitar techs everywhere will thank you for.
The crystal clear custom-designed EVH Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are mounted direclty to the body, supplying girth and sparkle, as well as near-endless sustain to power chords and melody lines.
Every component of this guitar has been selected and positioned for high-speed playing. The low-friction volume knob lets you perform speedy violin-like volume swells with ease while the tone knob resists easy turning—avoiding unwanted tonal shifts as your picking hand flies furiously across the strings. The rock-solid EVH-branded Floyd Rose® locking tremolo bridge combines with the Floyd Rose locking nut to maintain precise tuning, no matter how insane your whammy-bar histrionics get. The EVH D-Tuna® retunes to Drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the mere flick of a finger, making this the only guitar you’ll need onstage.
