Product Description

Description

Boasting the style and massive sound Eddie Van Halen is known for, the Wolfgang® WG Standard Exotic features all-new exotic wood options for players with distinguished taste.

The Wolfgang WG Standard Exotic Spalted Maple offers a basswood body with special “comfort cut” forearm contour for maximum playing ease, along with attractive masked-off natural body binding and a distinctive spalted maple top. Its bolt-on baked maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods hold strong against the ravages of temperature and humidity, while a conveniently located spoke wheel at the base of the neck makes for quick and painless truss rod adjustments.

Designed for comfortable playability and speed, this stylish axe also features an oiled finish on the back of the neck and a 12”-16” compound radius baked maple fingerboard with rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays.

Dual EVH® Wolfgang humbucking pickups mounted directly to the body increase vibration transfer, resulting in sustain for days on end. Two black knurled 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 Wolfgang pickups. The EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Special bridge and R2 locking nut consistently keep the instrument in tune through the deepest whammy dives and horse whinnies.

Decked out for playing performance and comfort, the Wolfgang WG Standard Exotic Spalted Maple is available in a Natural finish with black headstock and black chrome hardware.

FEATURES

BASSWOOD BODY WITH SPALTED MAPLE TOP AND TAPED-OFF FAUX NATURAL BODY BINDING

Featuring an offset shape with larger upper horn, the Wolfgang’s basswood body provides excellent tonal response that is full and rich, along with overall warmth and sustain. The dramatic black-lined grain pattern of the spalted maple top and taped-off faux natural body binding combine for a distinct and distinguished style.

 

BAKED MAPLE NECK AND FINGERBOARD

The baked maple neck and baked maple fingerboard offer increased stability, crystal clear, bright tones and exquisite style with its warmer hue and beautiful grain definition. Roasting the neck and fingerboard removes moisture from the wood, making it more resistant to humidity shifts and warping.

 

BOLT-ON QUARTERSAWN BAKED MAPLE NECK WITH EDDIE VAN HALEN'S UNIQUE WOLFGANG BACKSHAPE

Bolt-on is a type of neck construction that joins the maple neck to the body of the guitar with screws or bolts, resulting in bright tone with more control. Baking the wood also increases durability and combined with graphite-reinforcement rods that flank the truss rod, creates an incredibly stable surface that can hold up to environmental changes. Graphite-reinforcement rods flank the truss rod for even more increased neck stability, while your fretting hand will feel right at home on this unique Wolfgang neck, which has a .790” thickness at the 3rd fret and .880” at the 12th fret.

 

DIRECT MOUNT EVH WOLFGANG HUMBUCKING PICKUPS

Not all humbuckers are created equal. Direct mount EVH Wolfgang humbuckers with Alnico 2 magnets are hotter and harness Eddie’s scorching signature lead tone that captivated the world of rock ‘n’ roll in the ‘70s and ‘80s. These pickups deliver rich harmonics, cutting highs and snarling mids in spades.

 

EVH-BRANDED FLOYD ROSE SPECIAL LOCKING TREM & R2 LOCKING NUT

Eddie Van Halen was the first player to popularize the innovative Floyd Rose locking tremolo, even advising Floyd Rose on his early designs to integrate round disc finger-type tuners that you would see on a cello or violin. Now universally embraced, our EVH-branded Floyd Rose Special double-locking tremolo features our EVH logo stamped on the bridge plate, zinc alloy saddles and a zinc alloy sustain block. The double-locking design allows you to lock your guitar in tune at the R2 (41.8 mm) nut and at the bridge, resulting in excellent tuning stability and sustain throughout your most aggressive pull-ups and dive bombs.
