This limited edition Wolfgang Custom Relic U.S.A., combining vintage style, modern design elements and heavy-relic simulated wear and tear, is the same model played by Eddie Van Halen on stage. This guitar's mahogany body and neck are connected through a glued-neck joint for more sustain and richer body tone. For the first time a ’50s-era neck profile is featured for a classic, comfortable playing feel. Once again, if this guitar is good enough for Eddie than it's good enough for us!
EVH presents the Wolfgang Custom Relic U.S.A.—a perfect combination of vintage-style, modern design elements and heavy-relic simulated wear and tear destined to become a "future classic" instrument. In a first for a Wolfgang guitar model, its mahogany set neck is crafted with a vintage style '50s-era neck profile that imparts a classically comfortable playing feel. The neck also features a hand-oiled heavy-relic finish that evokes countless battle-hardened hours of play.
The distinctive Wolfgang body has a 1.5"-thick mahogany core with a half-inch-thick arched maple top and aged black-and-white binding. The compound-radius ebony fingerboard (12"-16") has 22 vintage-style stainless steel frets, elegant mother-of-pearl block inlays and aged white binding. Other features include two direct-mount Wolfgang Zebra humbucking pickups with three way toggle switching, two Bourns 500k low friction volume potentiometers, two Bourns 250k high-friction tone potentiometers, dual graphite neck reinforcement rods, Floyd Rose R2 locking nut, truss rod adjustment wheel at the butt end of the neck, TonePros adjustable Tune-o-matic-style bridge and Schaller fine tuning tailpiece and Schaller chrome string retainer bar on headstock. Available in Black, Gold and Vintage Burst gloss relic finishes.
Per Fender specialty, only a handful of these guitars were ever made. 20 give or take a few. So.. very limited.
