Eddie Van Halen plays Fender’s EVH Wolfgang guitar

Legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen has designed a new guitar for Fender. The Wolfgang, named for Van Halen’s son, has created quite a buzz since it debuted at the NAAM Show in Anaheim, CA on January 15.

The EVH Wolfgang features stainless steel frets, metal gadgets custom-made by a company that specializes in medical tools, and sections of wood that are left unpainted so the instrument can breathe and age — “like a Stradivarius.”

The 54-year-old rock star road tested the guitar during the highly successful Van Halen 2007-2008 tour.
