The guitar, amp and pickup pictured are the actual ones you will receive!
At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.
This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.
This guitar has been in our private EVH collection vault since 2011, and the signed pickup since 2009. This guitar is ready to be properly appreciated, played and admired in the spotlight, not sitting locked away and not being played. If someone comes along that is a huge fan like us and wants to buy it to play and appreciate it, that's great, however we do not need to sell it and are happy to keep it. We realize offering up these collectable and rare guitars at this time is going to bring up high emotions, and bring out all the keyboard warriors. Please give us a ring if you have questions.
We wanted to offer this unique collection of gear as a package deal to the distinguished collector. You will be receiving the signed guitar with case, signed pickup, the amp, and the brochure pictured.
Road-tested in arenas around the world, the Wolfgang Special is a purebred music-making machine, designed with stunning style, giant sound and high-speed playability.
This 2011 Wolfgang Special is at the flattop version of the USA Wolfgang and features a Basswood body and Maple veneer top with a bolt-on quartersawn Maple neck. The neck is carved and rolled to Eddie Van Halen’s exacting specifications and features an oiled finish on the back. Primed for high performance, energetic riffing and blazing custom designed EVH humbucking pickups are mounted directly to the body, providing dynamic yet articulate voicing, as well as endless sustain for powerful chords and melody lines. A sturdy and dependable EVH-branded Floyd Rose locking tremolo and Floyd Rose locking nut work in tandem for precise tuning even with extreme changes in pitch, while the EVH D-Tuna retunes to drop-D and back with strict accuracy at the flick of a finger, with a low-friction volume control for smooth swells and a high-friction tone control that prevents accidental tone shifting.
Spotlight-ready, this Wolfgang Special is finished in Black finish with a matching headstock, body binding and chrome hardware, including EVH Branded Gotoh tuners with pearloid buttons.
Also included with this guitar is the original SKB hardshell case with molded stripes and the original shipping box that came to us straight from EVH.
This guitar was autographed by Eddie and was made available to top level EVH dealers, which is how we acquired ours. It has never been owned. As huge EVH fans, we have acquired a unique collection of EVH guitars over the years. These have all been stored in a secure location without public access.

The legendary humbucking pickup from the guitar that changed everything. This EVH Frankenstein Relic humbucker is custom-wound to the exact original specifications, and is uniquely “Relic’d” to reflect the years of wear and tear of Eddie’s original. It was hand-signed by Eddie in 2009 and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Production was limited to 500 units worldwide. Made in the USA.
Eddie was supposed to sign 100, although he only signed around 60.
This pickup has never been owned and was just recently even unpackaged, so that we could verify that it was one of the ones signed, and take photos of it. It has been stored at a secure location without access to the public.
The EVH 5150III 50W EL34 1x12 combo delivers signature harmonic overtones with increased dynamic compression and saturation to evoke a more modern “British” sound, all with the sustain and versatility expected from an amp bearing Eddie Van Halen’s name.
Designed with flexible and independent dual-concentric controls that allow for gain and volume level matching, this 50 watt tube combo amp boasts three channels for any playing style - sparkly cleans, tight crunch or soulful leads.
Delivering a full-spectrum of tone, channel one features pristine cleans and compressed tone, channel two kicks in with overdrive and heavy gain and channel three oozes with liquid distortion. Channels one and two each have dual concentric gain/volume controls, with shared EQ (low, mid, high). Channel three has its own gain, volume and EQ (low, mid, high) controls. All three channels also have global presence, resonance and reverb controls.
Loaded with a 12” custom special designed EVH Celestion speaker to enhance sound and style, this combo amp also has seven JJ ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tubes, two JJ EL34 power tubes and front-panel adjustable power output from 50 watts down to one watt.
Other premium features include an ultra-high-gain preamp design custom-voiced for maximum output, single instrument input, rear-panel selectable output impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms) with a pair of parallel speaker outputs, rear-panel MIDI input and preamp output, rear-panel effects loop and headphone jack (mutes power amp), and a four-button footswitch that controls reverb plus all three channels for easy onstage switching.
The black cabinet is constructed out of Birch with special internal baffling for tight and increased bass response. Sporting a slick black and gold striped motif on the control panel, this combo is finished off with black vintage-style chicken knobs, red LED jewel indicator, molded black plastic top handle and pop-out casters.
