Now that 2012 is coming to a close, best-of lists abound. Guitar World contributed to the mass of rankings with their top five electric guitars of the year, and the EVH Wolfgang USA Stealth was one of the axes highlighted.
“The Stealth features an EVH branded double-locking Floyd Rose tremolo and EVH D-Tuna — a must have device that quickly drops your low E string from an E note to a D and back in a flash without having to retune,” Guitar World gear editor Paul Riario wrote. ”You’ll get plenty of raw and edgy tones from the guitar, thanks to the EVH humbuckers being screwed directly into the wood, while the quartersawn maple neck and compound radius ebony fretboard with stainless steel frets makes fretting out near impossible.
“For rocking out and guitar pyrotechnics, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better axe.”
