Here is a review of the 1st HP Special out. I think it looks pretty good & may pick one up.

Re: 1st HP Special (Wolfgang Replacement) Out

i just unboxed the same model and color yesterday at the store i work at. the case is a very cool part of the package being brown snakeskin like with gold trim and HP sig. badge. to me it is almost the best part - i wasn't really blown away for a $2300 ($1800 selling price) guitar. nice wood binding, nice pickups but just doesn't seem to be fit and finish a guitar worth their asking price IMHO.
the one we have is actually a string thru body hardtail version. the nut is glossed onto the headstock which is unfortuanate since it has a slight buzz on the low E at the first fret. i was kinda bummed since i was really looking forward to trying it out. still a stunning looker.

Nah I dont like it. The body doesnt look proportioned correctly for me. I think it will take me a little while to get used to the double cut away idea, for me it was always just a single cutaway "look" that worked. It looks nice in the photos, and I am sure it looks tastey in the flesh, with lovely figuring in the woods. But it just aint for me. What sort of retail price are they at in the shops? You cant really work it out via the list price.
