The Wolfgang® Special Striped Black and Yellow guitar is a nod to Eddie Van Halen’s historic and iconic Bumbleebee guitar, and comes loaded with player-oriented features.
This high-performance guitar features an arched top basswood body with a robust graphite-reinforced bolt-on quartersawn maple neck, carved and rolled to Eddie Van Halen’s exacting specifications and with a hand-rubbed urethane back finish. Experience ultra-high-speed playability from its 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays, and make quick and easy truss rod adjustments (even between songs) thanks to the conveniently located heel-mounted spoke wheel.
A pair of flagship custom designed EVH® Wolfgang Humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the body, providing dynamic yet articulate voicing, as well as near-endless sustain for powerful chords and melody lines.
The sturdy and dependable EVH-branded Floyd Rose Locking Trem and the Floyd Rose Locking nut work in tandem to provide endless sustain and precise tuning no matter how many dive bombs you rip or how aggressive you get with your whammy-bar.
Spotlight ready, this huge-sounding Wolfgang Special also comes with chrome hardware, a three-position toggle switch, black speed knobs and EVH-branded tuners.
