EVH Wolfgang Special Guitars

The Wolfgang guitar debuted in 1996 and became popular for its association with Eddie Van Halen. After Eddie left Music Man, who produced a signature model for the legendary axeman in the early-to-mid '90s (later becoming the Axis), Eddie made the switch to Peavey and until 2004 the Wolfgang was produced under their name.

Heavily derived from the Music Man Axis, the Peavey Wolfgang still featured the same essential features, including a dive-only Floyd Rose tremolo, a pair of punchy humbuckers and a comfortable Maple neck. However, the Peavey Wolfgang featured an arched top akin to a Les Paul instead of a conventional flat body.

Fast-forward to 2009, and Eddie unleashed a new version of the Wolfgang under his own EVH brand; built by Fender. Almost identical to his Peavey models, the EVH Wolfgang featured newly-designed pickups and a compound radius fingerboard for improved playability. The EVH Wolfgang Special models are built in Mexico but boast superior features to the Standard models. Featuring arched tops like their old Peavey counterparts, the Wolfgang Specials come installed with Eddie's patented EVH D-Tuna, which allows you to detune the lowest string by a whole step for drop D tuning!
