EVH, on top of its recently-announced 5150III 15W LBX-S amp head, has unveiled its new Limited Edition Wolfgang Special Sassafras guitar.
As its name implies, this Wolfgang Special features a sassafras body with an arched top. Its graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn baked maple neck is carved and rolled exactly to Eddie Van Halen’s specifications, and features a hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish and a 12”-16” compound radius baked maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays.
A spoke wheel, located at the base of the neck, is also available for easy truss rod adjustments.
The guitar's tones are provided by a pair of custom-designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbucking pickups controlled by a three-way toggle switch, a volume control with a 500K EVH Bourns low friction pot, a tone control with a 250K EVH Bourns high friction pot and a treble bleed circuit.
An EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking trem, Floyd Rose R2 locking nut and EVH's patented D-Tuna system also all come standard on the guitar.
The EVH Limited Edition Wolfgang Special Sassafras will be available - in a Satin Black finish - starting in November for $1,399.
