NAMM 2011: EVH Wolfgang Stealth, set-neck and 5150III Mini amp
Eddie Van Halen has some amazing gear on show at NAMM this year, including a set-neck Wolfgang, the Wolfgang Stealth (above), a lefty Wolfgang and a 50-watt, 3-channel 5150 III Mini amp. (Unfortunately I didn’t manage to catch EVH himself when I was at the EVH Gear booth. Oh well. Next time).
The set-neck model (the Wolfgang USA Custom) features a mahogany body and maple top (the bolt-on version is basswood with a maple top) which is almost 2″ thick. The neck is reinforced with carbon reinforcement rods that extend all the way into the headstock. The bridge is a Graph Tech Tune-O-Matic bridge with Schaller fine tuners.
