Wolfgang USA Tour Relic Replica Guitar by EVH


As announced after the 2015 Van Halen Tour, EVH Gear will make available an exact replica of the striking, aged-looking Ivory Wolfgang USA guitar that Eddie Van Halen played onstage with the release of a limited 20-piece.

The amaizing guitar is the result of Van Halen request made to the Master Builder Chip Ellis to build him the already used Wolfgang USA in Stealth Black guitar with a detailed relic treatment so that the original coat of black paint showed through the Ivory top coat.

“Chip built that for me and did a wonderful job,” Van Halen said in a recent interview. “I compared it to my trusty old Stealth, and the white guitar sounded better, so it immediately became my main guitar for rehearsals and the tour.”
In addition Van Halen decided to sand down the back of the neck since he felt it was a little thicker than what he typically prefers from his neck profiles.

“It’s still a little fatter than the Stealth’s neck, but I’m happy with it, so it stuck,” he said.

The custom Ivory Wolfgang USA also features an ebony fingerboard, block fretboard inlays, custom kill switch, EVH Custom High Friction (Tone) Pot and an EVH “HPU” or High Performance Upgrade, custom-made Low Friction (Volume) Pot.
“It’s the only volume pot I’ve found where I can play ‘Cathedral’ without any crackle or pop,” he said.

The EVH Wolfgang USA Tour Relic Replica also comes with a Custom Anvil white case (with black interior) featuring the Van Halen logo, Certificate of Authenticity autographed by Eddie Van Halen, EVH instrument cable, EVH strings .009-.042 and an EVH leather strap with dog leash clasps.
