EVH SA126 Special - Stealth Black With Hard Shell Case

EVH SA-126 Special: A Modern Guitar for the 21st Century

Introducing the EVH SA-126 Special, Wolfgang Van Halen’s groundbreaking vision of what a modern guitar should embody in the 21st century. This innovative instrument is a hybrid masterpiece, merging the characteristics of a semi-hollow and solid body guitar. The SA-126 combines a chambered mahogany body with a basswood center block for stability and enhanced tone, topped with either solid maple or quilt maple, depending on the finish. This design creates a guitar that is both visually stunning and sonically rich, perfectly suited for versatile performance needs.

High-Performance Features and Exceptional Playability

The SA-126 is crafted with a focus on playability and high performance. It features a slim, 22-fret neck with a 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard, equipped with jumbo frets and triple block inlays. The neck is reinforced with graphite and made from mahogany, ensuring durability and stability. The scale length of 24.75 inches provides a comfortable and familiar playing experience, while the spoke wheel truss rod adjustment at the neck’s butt end allows for easy on-the-fly adjustments.

Powerful and Versatile Electronics

At the heart of the SA-126’s sound are the custom EVH bridge and neck pickups, designed by Tim Shaw in collaboration with the EVH team. These pickups are capable of delivering a wide range of tones, from pristine, cascading cleans to heavy, saturated overdrive. The three-way toggle switch, located on the upper horn, allows for quick and easy selection between the bridge, bridge and neck, and neck pickups. Additionally, the guitar features two volume and two tone controls for precise sound shaping.

Premium Hardware and Stylish Finishes

The SA-126 Special is equipped with premium hardware to match its high-performance capabilities. It features a Harmonica bridge and stop bar tailpiece for exceptional sustain and tuning stability, oversized strap buttons, and keystone tuning pegs. Available in four striking finishes—Tobacco Sunburst with Gold Hardware, Transparent Purple with Chrome Hardware, Matte Army Drab, and Stealth Black with Black Hardware—this guitar is designed to stand out on any stage. Each SA-126 Special also comes with a custom hardshell case wrapped in ivory vinyl with a blue crushed velvet interior, providing elegant protection for your instrument.
