Both are distinctive variations on the hugely successful original model, the USA-made EVH Wolfgang guitar designed by Eddie Van Halen.

Scottsdale, AZ (March 24, 2011) – EVH is proud to introduce two new Wolfgang guitar models, the Wolfgang USA Custom and the Wolfgang Stealth. Both are distinctive variations on the hugely successful original model, the U.S.-made EVH Wolfgang guitar designed by Eddie Van Halen.

Perhaps the most uniquely elegant instrument in the Wolfgang series, the Wolfgang USA Custom represents Eddie Van Halen’s personal tribute to the short scale, set neck guitars of the late 1950s, combined with the distinctive modern personal touches he prefers on his own guitars. These two elements culminate in a truly magnificent tone machine embodying the best of yesterday and today.



The guitar’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 3/4” scale length. Features include a compound radius (12”-16”) ebony or 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. Available in Black, White and Vintage Cherry Burst.

In designing an especially sleek all-black addition to the Wolfgang series, Eddie Van Halen decided to try something he previously wasn’t known to prefer—an ebony fingerboard. He liked it so much that the resulting guitar—the Wolfgang Stealth—now resides at the very forefront of his arsenal.

Features include an archtop basswood body, quartersawn maple neck with dual graphite reinforcement rods, compound radius (12”-16”) ebony fingerboard with 22 vintage stainless steel frets, dual hard-mounted EVH Wolfgang humbucking pickups with three-position switching, dual Bourns low- (volume) and high-friction (tone) potentiometers, EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo with EVH D-Tuna, black hardware, EVH-branded 14-1 Gotoh chrome tuners with pearloid buttons, Schaller chrome string retainer and EVH molded-stripe case by SKB. Available in Stealth Black.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
