Wolfgang Van Halen is currently on the road for his postponed Young Guns tour with his Mammoth WVH bandmates and Dirty Honey. And, as we reported last month, the band’s shows have offered up a number of surprises both on the setlist and in the gear department, with Wolfgang offering a teasing glimpse of an elusive, as-yet-unannounced EVH semi-hollow electric guitar.

Besides some live footage and a few Instagram snaps, details on the guitar have been sparse. That is, however, until now, after the multi-instrumentalist discussed his upcoming signature during an appearance on Chris Shiflett’s Walking the Floor podcast.
