Test till it breaks!

Wolfgang Van Halen announced that his new signature model SA-126 guitar would honor his late father, mirroring the sentiment of Eddie’s song 316, dedicated to Wolfgang. He has been out road-testing it to destruction for two years with his band Mammoth. He is so much like his father, as Eddie did the same with all his guitars.

Two Styles

The  EVH SA-126 debuts in two distinct looks; the Stealth Black or Matte Army Drab maple top version, and a more fancy Transparent Purple or Tobacco Sunburst finished quilt maple top edition. Apart from the tops, the two variants are identical.

Construction

They both feature a mahogany body with a basswood centre block, a bolt-on mahogany neck with an EVH modified C shape, and an ebony fretboard with a 12”-16” compound radius with  22 jumbo-frets. Design-wise, this is a hybrid between a semi-hollow and solid-body guitar.

It comes with a harmonica bridge, a stop bar tailpiece, and a set of Mammoth inlays.
