There’s also a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays.

Other features include a pair of direct-mount custom-designed EVH Wolfgang Alnico 2 humbuckers, an EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo and an EVH D-Tuna.

The guitar comes in a Natural finish with a matching headstock, single-ply black body binding and black hardware.
