We all know the signature sound, the trademark guitars, the incomparable songwriting, and the innovation. But fans of Eddie Van Halen will soon get a rare, up-close-and-personal peek behind the magic of the legendary guitarist.
Throughout early February, Eddie Van Halen will be appearing in several media outlets chatting about the new EVH Wolfgang guitar, his most recent line of EVH products, and giving fans an unparalleled look into his world.
The brand new EVH Wolfgang guitar debuted January 15 at the 2009 NAMM show in Anaheim, California to a truly amazing reception and created one of the biggest buzzes at the show attended by musical instrument retailers from around the world.
Eddie has destroyed old ways of thinking about guitars and brought the same genius, innovation and creativity from his playing directly into the design and manufacturing process, giving new meaning to the term "high performance." Since its introduction just two weeks ago, the all new EVH Wolfgang guitar is blowing people away, with the massive demand far exceeding all original estimates.
The guitar, which Eddie road-tested nightly on the critically acclaimed, highly successful VAN HALEN 2007-2008 North American tour, boasts loads of features. Among them are 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, and new low-friction pots. Also coming soon is the brand new, D2H (Drop To Hell) Tailpiece. Stay tuned to www.evhgear.com for an exclusive video of Eddie himself explaining, demonstrating and telling the story behind this very unique, innovative patented tailpiece.
Readers will learn more about Eddie's products and get that rare perspective of his life when he appears on CNN and CNN.com January 30-February 2, February 2 on AOL.com, in the February 6 issue of Rolling Stone and in the February 10 issue of Variety. The Rolling Stone interview includes a candid conversation between Eddie and reporter Brian Hiatt, and exclusive photography fresh off of the press.
