EVH® Wolfgang® WG Standard Exotic Midnight Sunset

Model: 5107002512 Series: Wolfgang® Standard
Wolfgang® WG Standard Exotic, Baked Maple Fingerboard, Midnight Sunset

Boasting the style and massive sound Eddie Van Halen is known for, the Wolfgang® WG Standard Exotic features all-new exotic wood options for players with distinguished taste.

The Wolfgang WG Standard Exotic features a basswood body with special “comfort cut” forearm contour for maximum playing ease, along with attractive masked-off natural body binding and a unique poplar burl top. Its one-piece bolt-on baked maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods hold strong against the ravages of temperature and humidity, while a conveniently located spoke wheel at the base of the neck makes for quick and painless truss rod adjustments.

Designed for comfortable playability and speed, this stylish axe also features an oiled neck back finish and a 12”-16” compound radius baked maple fingerboard with rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays.

Dual EVH® Wolfgang humbucking pickups mounted directly to the body increase vibration transfer, resulting in sustain for days on end. Two domed control knobs have been dialed-in to Van Halen’s exacting specifications—the smooth-feeling 500k pots make it easy to find a unique sound while retaining the crisp high-end sparkle of the Wolfgang pickups. The EVH-branded Floyd Rose® Special bridge and R2 locking nut consistently keep the instrument in tune through the deepest whammy dives and horse whinnies.

Decked out for playing performance and comfort, the Wolfgang WG Standard Exotic is available in a stunning Midnight Sunset finish with a black headstock and black chrome hardware.
