I recently ordered an EVH Wolfgang Special with Floyd Rose tremolo, and I plan to start a fan site around all the Wolfgang models. (Which began with Peavey, and then later Fender.) As such, I had some questions regarding the EVH Wolfgang Special model that needed answering as the EVH Gear website isn’t as specific as I’d like. Those questions and answers are below.
Where is the EVH Wolfgang Special Floyd Rose model manufactured for its multiple model years? 2013, 2014, 2015 (I know some are made in Mexico, some in Japan, and some in Indonesia. Which ones, where?)
–Production moved from Japan to China in 4/2012. Then to Mexico in 6/2014.
The EVH Web site states that the EVH Wolfgang Special Hardtail has “Vintage Size” frets. What actual fret gauge is that?
–Since the hard tail version was made in factories located overseas (that have sense closed) I do not have the exact measurements of those frets. I will investigate and let you know what I find!
What is the EVH Wolfgang’s neck profile? (In the past, the Peavey-made models were asymmetrical. Is that still the case?)
It is indeed still asymmetrical.
The EVH website states that the maple top on the EVH Wolfgang Special is a veneer, even on the solid painted models. Is that correct? I would expect that the flamed finishes would be a veneer, and the solid finishes wouldn’t have a top at all.)
–You are correct. No veneer on the solid colors.
I’m quite impressed with Fender’s fast and informative response. Thanks FMIC!
