Everything I've built, destroyed, stumbled onto, learned, and experienced is in this guitar.
Medford, OR (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
Direct marketer of music gear, Musician's Friend announces the new EVH Wolfgang Electric Guitar, the highly-anticipated instrument designed by Eddie Van Halen and available for preorder starting today from Musician's Friend.
One of rock's most respected and influential guitar players, Eddie Van Halen drew on his 35 years of experience to create the EVH Wolfgang Guitar. Commenting on its development, Van Halen recalled, "Every aspect and component of this guitar has been examined and upgraded to the highest standards possible: stainless steel frets, double-potted custom wound pickups, five-piece binding on the matching body and headstock, custom-made signature tuning machines and Floyd Rose® bridge, new low-friction pots, and the list keeps going . . . we left no stone unturned."
Prototypes of the Wolfgang were road-tested in live performances for over a year and Van Halen played the final version during his 2007-2008 tour. Following two years of research, development, and passionate dedication, the EVH Wolfgang is now Eddie Van Halen's instrument of choice. The guitar god commented, "Everything I've built, destroyed, stumbled onto, learned, and experienced is in this guitar." The EVH guitar is the culmination of Eddie's entire career and he now offers it to fans with the observation that, "A guitar is a very personal extension of the person playing it. You have to be emotionally and spiritually connected to your instrument. I do this because a lot of people ask if they can get what I use. Well, yes, you can and what you get is identical to what I use."
The EVH Wolfgang comes in a choice of three finishes: black, vintage white, or opaque tobacco sunburst over a quilted maple top. More information on this and a huge selection of other electric guitars is available at Musician's Friend.
