Eddie Van Halen Talks About His New Guitar
Anytime you’re given the chance to listen to one of the greatest guitar players ever to walk this planet talk about his new guitar, his new signature model, my advice is to listen. A few weeks ago we got the chance to listen to U2’s The Edge talk about some of his favorite guitars, and now, we’re being graced with the chance to not only check out, but hear Eddie Van Halen talk about his new signature model he’s unleashing onto the world.
The guitar, called the EVH Wolfgang for now, and due out in stores sometime in 2009, looks like a beauty, and what’s best, it’s exactly up to THE EVH’s strict specifications. When asked about the guitar, Van Halen said,
“I don’t need to do this for financial reasons. I could have just stayed at home and built this guitar for myself. I do this because a lot of people ask if they can get what I use. Well, yes you can and what you get is identical to what I use….The tolerance of things on this guitar is like NASA standards. It had to be tight, and it had to be quality…They paid attention to every damn detail.”
Paying attention to details is good, but being able to play a guitar that’s up to someone like Eddie Van Halen’s specs? Priceless, as they say. At any rate, it’s not out yet, but you can check out a great deal more on the guitar if you so desire. Stay tuned for pricing and availability…when we know, you’ll know.
