The guitar, which is handmade in Japan, is modeled after the EVH Wolfgang guitar designed by Eddie Van Halen and made in the U.S.A.

Scottsdale, AZ (June 19, 2010) -- EVH is proud to introduce the new EVH Wolfgang Special guitar based on the EVH Wolfgang guitar designed by Eddie Van Halen.



The Wolfgang Special is a pro-level signature guitar, handmade in Japan, featuring many of the same exclusive custom appointments as its U.S.-made counterpart for less than half the price.

Some of these unique features include a basswood body with maple veneer flat top and single ply body binding, and a quartersawn maple neck complete with an AA birdseye maple compound radius fretboard, and 22 vintage-style stainless steel frets.

Additional features it shares with its U.S.-made counterpart include custom-designed EVH Wolfgang humbucking pickups, an EVH branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo system with D-Tuna, a 3-position toggle switch, two Bourns low-friction controls (1 x 250k, 1 x 500k), EVH tuning machines, and a custom SKB molded striped case. Available in Vintage White, Tobacco Burst, and Black polyurethane finishes.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
