Built for Rock
Everything about the EVH Star is designed for heavy rock playing. The neck is graphite reinforced quartersawn wood, this means it can take the thickest of strings without warping. If you really like to dig in on heavy gauge strings it’s great. The Star also comes with an EVH D-Tuna, a switch which drops you into drop D Tuning instantly. No need to change guitars onstage or spend those agonising seconds tuning down in front of everyone.
The compound radius neck is great for lead or chords, whether you’re soloing or playing rhythm this guitar is comfortable to play.
It took over 80 prototypes in the development process before Eddie approved these humbucking pickups for the EVH Wolfgang guitar. They are well balanced and able to deliver serious overdrive and sustain without sacrificing the ability to clean up magnificently and articulate the cleanest passages when the volume is rolled down.
