    Default Ed's new guitar: VH1-striped Wolfgang

    In the thread for the June 18, 2013 Japan show it was revealed that Eddie played a never before seen Wolfgang with the black and white VH1 stripes.

    This thread is for us gear-heads to discuss and share pictures of that guitar...



    Here are a few I've found...





    And this one was in the thread for the Japan show...




    Things of note:

    -large EVH logo on headstock. Does not appear to say Wolfgang on it.
    -Kill switch
    -ebony neck, and not maple like the VH1 guitar had.
    -black Wolfgang pickups
    -Also looks like the finish isn't perfect, not cleared over like Art Series/Striped series


    Anyone else have any good pics of this guitar?


    EDIT: a few more:

    Thanks johnnybeane. Very cool pic. So there are TWO!

    Even weirder in that pic is that he's touring with a couple of Striped Series guitars?!?!

    When I first saw the vids yesterday, my reaction was this is a 24 fret neck. Watching closer--I realized I was wrong.
    Maybe I am crazy but something about the neck scale or the body dimension seems slightly different. The neck just looks longer to me in relation to the body ect.
    I cannot tell if they are cleared over from the facebook pic.
    I'll bet one is tuned to A flat and one is tuned to A for the keyboard songs.
    We may be looking at a prototype for the next production model.
    VH seems to have pulled out a few stops for Japan. So, maybe Eddie just wanted some special guitars for this special tour.

    I dig it. I'd like to see more striped Wolfgangs from him. Would love to see one that matches Wolf's stealth striped bass!

    I like the striped Wolfie... Looks great.

    I like the matte red Wolf too.

    I'm still not used to Ed's new Wolfgang guitars. Those striped white ones look thicker also?

    The striped guitars probably look thicker because they don't have binding. I'd bet they're the same thickness as standard Wolfgangs.

    I thought they looked thicker too...Almost like a Custom, but with the bolt on neck. Maybe it's an illusion with the binding not visually present?
    I think it looks cool though.

    What's the guitar on the far left?
    That's not a standard Art Series guitar, is it?
    The finish looks "factory", whatever it is.

    Love the B/W EVH too ... especially the dark ebony board.

    The two on the left look like the new "Striped Series" guitars to me.

    Will be interesting to see if he actually plays those. My guess is they've either got them there for giveaways, or to snap some pics of him onstage with them for future advertisements.
