EVH Wolfgang® WG Standard Quilted Maple – Transparent Amber List Price: $799
The Wolfgang® WG Standard QM boasts the same style and massive sound Eddie Van Halen created — at a price the everyday musician can afford. Offering many of the blazing features as its more expensive brethren, this axe features a basswood body with special “comfort cut” forearm contour for maximum playing ease, along with attractive masked-off natural body binding and an elegant quilt maple top. Its bolt-on baked maple neck with graphite-reinforcement rods holds 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, the Wolfgang WG Standard also features a smooth 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. The black knurled tone and volume 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.
Tested live onstage where it counts, the Wolfgang WG Standard QM is decked out for playing performance and comfort, and available in an array of stage-stealing finishes with black headstocks and black chrome hardware. Bolt-On 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.
Roasting the fingerboard removes moisture from the wood, making it more resistant to humidity shifts and warping. 12"-16" Compound Radius Baked Maple Fingerboard The innovative 12"-16" compound radius baked maple fingerboard design gradually flattens toward the heel from its smaller and more rounded profile at the nut for unparalleled comfortable chording and riffing near the nut and seamless bending near the heel. Maple is a dense wood that produces bright, snappy tones, articulate notes with bite and a tight low end. Roasting the fingerboard removes moisture from the wood, making it more resistant to humidity shifts and warping. Versatile Switching & Controls All Wolfgang Standard models come complete with a versatile control layout. Explore the tonal landscape with the three-way toggle switch, which in position one engages the bridge pickup for robust rhythm riffing. Position two engages both pickups, while position three’s neck pickup is ideal for all your blistering solo needs. The volume knob has a treble bleed circuit for seamless volume swells, along with a single tone knob. Heel-Mount Truss Rod Adjustment Spoke Wheel Humidity and temperature fluctuations wreak havoc on a guitar’s neck. With the truss rod adjustment wheel placed at the heel of the neck, you (or your guitar tech) can quickly insert a 1.5 mm Allen wrench between the strings for seamless neck relief tweaks on the fly.
