Eddie Van Halen's personal tribute to the short-scale set-neck guitars of the late 1950s.
Perhaps the most uniquely elegant instrument in the Wolfgang series, the EVH Wolfgang USA Custom combines the time-tested short-scale set neck design with the distinctive modern personal touches Eddie prefers on his own guitars. These two elements culminate in a truly magnificent tone machine embodying the best of yesterday and today.
The EVH Wolfgang Custom's mahogany body has a 1/2" arched maple top and seven-ply binding, a bound mahogany set neck with dual graphite reinforcement rods, and a 24.75" scale length. Features include a compound-radius (12"-16") rosewood fingerboard, 22 vintage stainless steel frets, seven-ply headstock and body binding, mother-of-pearl headstock logo inlay on ebony, dual EVH Wolfgang Custom nickel-covered humbucking pickups with three-position switching, stop-tail bridge with fine tuners, EVH custom tuners, dual EVH custom low-friction 500k volume pots, dual EVH custom high-friction 250k tone pots and an EVH molded-stripe case by SKB®.
