Fender now builds out the line of EVH guitars and amps. The EVH Wolfgang Custom relic is the most expensive instrument with an MSRP of $7,999.99USD.
And why am I even looking at EVH guitars?
Well, not for me. I love my custom shop Strat. The reason is that I caught Eddie’s recent interview at the Smithsonian. He is a couple of years older than me — which means he is getting quite old — but he still plays incredibly well. And he features the amps and guitars that carry his initials.
The interview provides some insight into what drove him to push the boundaries of the electric guitar especially in three areas: tapping, tone and volume swells.
There is no doubt that he was one of the most influential players of the 20th century. And it is great to see him pick up his instrument and play all of those lines at 60 years of age. Check the video atÂ around 25 minutes if you want to see and hear him play.
