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.
