EVH Finally Unveils WOLFGANG VAN HALEN’s Signature SA-126

Wolfgang Van Halen’s long-rumored signature EVH guitar has finally been announced and it’s friggin’ gorgeous. The SA-126 will come in two separate variations – the SA-126 Special and the SA-126 Special Quilted Maple.


The SA-126 Special features a chambered Mahogany body with a Basswood centerblock, and a Maple top on solid finishes and Flame Maple top on translucent finishes. The Mahogany neck offers a 22 fret 12″-16″ compound Ebony fingerboard with jumbo frets and triple block inlays. The SA-126 Special offers the first-ever EVH SA-126 bridge and neck pickups, created by Fender’s resident pickup designer Tim Shaw and the EVH team.

Electronics-wise, the SA-126 Special has a three-way toggle at the upper horn to switch between bridge, bridge and neck, and neck pickups as well as two volumes and two tones to control each. Other features include a Harmonica bridge and stop bar tailpiece, oversized strap buttons, and keystone tuning pegs. The SA-126 will be offered in Matte Army Drab and Stealth Black for $1,799.99.

Then there’s the SA-126 Special Quilted Maple which offers all the same as the above, but swapping out the Maple and Flamed Maple tops for (you guessed it) a Quilted Maple top.The SA-126 Quilted Maple will be offered in Transparent Purple and Tobacco Sunburst for $1,899.99.
