Inside Eddie and Wolfgang''s rigs.

EVH Wolfgang Stealth
Eddie played this graphite-colored Wolfgang Stealth equipped with an ebony fretboard, a titanium D-Tuna, and a large red kill switch for most of the show. The tape surrounding the bridge pickup is to prevent the high E string from catching under the pickup.

When PG caught up with Van Halen before their April 27, 2012, performance at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, the only thing more thrilling than getting a guided tour of Eddie’s and Wolfgang’s rigs from their techs, Craig DeFalco and Jim Survis, was getting to sit through soundcheck and hear Ed, Wolf, and Alex pound out flawless versions of classics such as “Unchained” and “Runnin’ with the Devil.” Sadly, we can’t share the unreal listening experience with you—but we can share our great shots of their gear. Enjoy!
