EVH has unveiled a series of new products today, including two new scale-down combo amps to add to the 5150 line, two new Wolfgang Special guitars, and a Wolfgang Standard.

The 5150 Iconic Series 60W 2X12 and 5150 Iconic Series 15W 1X10 are two-channel combos amps with an additional voicing to choose from. You also get a shared three-band EQ, plus global resonance and presence knobs for  further shaping the low- and high-end – and there’s a master reverb, too.

On the 15W 1X10 combo, there’s a one-button footswitch, an effects loop, dual parallel speaker output jacks and a ¼ power switch to reduce wattage.  The 60W 2X12 combo, on the other hand, has a boost control which allows you to add an extra volume via footswitch.

Both amps are available in Black and Ivory; the 15W 1X10 is $800, while the 60W 2X12 is $1,400.

As for the guitars, the Wolfgang Special, Maple Fingerboard, and Wolfgang Special QM, Baked Maple Fingerboard have similar specs, but vary slightly on price.

They both feature basswood bodies with an arched tops and graphite-reinforced bolt-on quarter sawn necks – which is carved and rolled to Eddie Van Halen’s exacting specifications and hand-rubbed with a urethane back finish.

The 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays. Truss rod adjustments have also been made easier, thanks to a spoke wheel at the base of the neck.

The Wolfgang Special is available in Satin Surf Green and Sonic Boom and will be available for $1,150, while the Wolfgang Special QM is available in Purple Burst, and is selling for $1,300.

Finally, the Wolfgang WG standard offers many of the same features as the special, but has a basswood body with a special “comfort cut” forearm contour. Its bolt on baked maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods fends against temperature changes, and features 22 jumbo frets. It is available in Absinthe Frost and Battleship Grey. It sells at $750.

EVH is the product of Fender and the late Eddie Van Halen almost twenty years ago. Since his passing, his son Wolfgang Van Halen, and business partner Matt Bruck have taken over the reins.
