Jack White Guitar News

Many have been asking - What Eddie Van Halen guitar did Jack White use on his Saturday Night Live appearance in October 2020?

Answer: Jack used one of his custom EVH Woflgang model guitars. The guitar is blue and has black block inlays along with 3 pickups. On his Instagram post the day of the SNL show, Jack said that this EVH guitar "was designed by Eddie (with a few customizations I had added). Eddie was very kind to me and saw to it that this guitar was made for me to my specs." You can see Jack playing this EVH guitar here, along with a Fender Twin Reverb amp on SNL:

Jack actually has played a variety of the EVH Wolfgang guitar models, including the EVH Wolfgang USA Signature model guitar. Jack was on guitar world with his blue EVH guitar and there's a nice Jack White writeup on the EVH site that talks about Jack's use of the EVH guitars.
