    Default Wolfgang Guitar Strap

    Anyone know or heard if EVH Gear plans to release Wolfgang leather guitar straps?

    How about a Wolfgang bass?

    (I'm looking for a black one).

    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    It's his company now, so he'll probably whore-out as much as possible. Can't wait for the Wolfgang Hot Sauce!

    I did a search on ebay this morning for "EVH" guitar straps.
    I think two came up and they were 50 bucks each!
    I will just continue to play sitting down

    If they were only $50 each, they weren't the Wolfgang straps.
    They go for anywhere between $200-$300 each on ebay.
    It's absolutely ridiculous.

    On a good note ...
    There are recent pictures which show Ed wearing a very similar strap with just the "EVH" logo, so I'm guessing they should probably be available whenever the new Wolfgangs come out.
    I just hope they're reasonably priced.

    ya, 200 bucks for a strap is insane.
    I also saw that for 250 I could get a soft case for the guitar.
    wow.
    How much are his picks, 50 a piece?

    Glad I got my Wolf strap when they were reasonably priced, geez. I love it, but I wouldn't pay what they go for now.

    Maybe that's where the "brown sound" comes from.

    I also can't believe the e-bay prices on used Wolfgang straps.
    I bought mine for $50 with my Wolfie Special.
    "Black leather with white and red stitching."
    I only used it at home and the damn thing fell apart!
    Thinking about finding a leather tailor to fix it and then sell it on E-Bay.

    Also, did they come in different sizes, Mine is not long enough to wear on stage?

    there's a whole market for wildly overpriced accessories that rich wives and mothers buy for their rich husbands and kids buy...not the most discerning customer base but they have a lot of disposable income and are completely fine with dropping wads of cash. I was in a shop the other day and they had a 450 dollar gig bag...yep gig bag...it was lightly padded, nothing out of the ordinary...had one large pocket and a second smaller one. It was leather, and I guess rather than using splits, it was all top grain, but still...450 bucks for a gig bag? We can all find crap like that...ed is neither the first nor the worst. His products are nice gift items that people buy not because the physical item itself is worth the price but because it's a van halen item...no big deal. A calvin klein shirt isn't worth, as a shirt, what the price tag implies but it's calvin klein and for the guy who wants the ego boost of knowing he's wearing calvin klein it's worth the price...i don't see why you guys get so worked up over ed's stuff...at least he's got his name on something that makes sense...it's not like there's a line of evh ketchup and mustard...

    You mean that rumor about a line of EVH-branded horseradish wasn't true?

    Yup, my dealer GAVE me a strap when I bought my Wolf and the stiching was already coming apart. I get home and try it on (all the way extened)and I looked like a Beatle! so I GAVE it back to him To answer your question, no they don't come in different sizes. Small guitars=Small straps=Small................

    I thought the wolfgang strap was fine as far as length goes. then again, Im a shorter dude, using a wolfgang. My only friggen complaint is that like you guys mine kept busting on me. I found fixes for it for a while but finally the thing gave out beyond repair so I just said screw it. Bought another leather strap that hasnt given me any guff and was about 20 bucks less than the wolfgang strap was when i first bought it...
    Eddie and Dave...the way it was meant to be
