Guitar World Staff Picks: Paul Riario’s Top 5 Electric Guitars of 2012
Guitar World Gear Editor Paul Riario chooses his top five new electric guitars of 2012.
04. EVH Wolfgang USA Stealth
The EVH Wolfgang USA Stealth ($3,999.99) is pricey for sure, but what you get is the exact custom guitar Eddie Van Halen plays. I must admit I was never a fan of the Wolfgang guitar shape, but in this new matte black finish and ebony fretboard, it looks and sounds pretty badass.
The Stealth features an EVH branded double-locking Floyd Rose tremolo and EVH D-Tuna — a must have device that quickly drops your low E string from an E note to a D and back in a flash without having to retune. You’ll get plenty of raw and edgy tones from the guitar, thanks to the EVH humbuckers being screwed directly into the wood, while the quartersawn maple neck and compound radius ebony fretboard with stainless steel frets makes fretting out near impossible.
For rocking out and guitar pyrotechnics, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better axe.
