Re: EVH Wolfgang Stealth Ebony Fretboard

Well they've ordered me another one and let me keep using this one in the meantime, can't argue with that. Hoping that they can actually still get one, and that it's not in the same shape as this.

Re: EVH Wolfgang Stealth Ebony Fretboard

Thats pretty good news man. Awesome they are letting you keep your "new" one for the time being. I know that peavey had some "issues" wit hthe wolfgangs (EVH stopped production of some stuff), so some people had to wait a while before they got their orders in. Sucks, but he kind of takes his name on a guitar seriously. Hope it all works out for you man.

Re: EVH Wolfgang Stealth Ebony Fretboard

As another follow-up to this, and to give props to Fender for their customer service, I wanted to pass along some more info. I heard directly from Fender today, and they are looking at having a brand new neck made and shipped to me to replace the current one... I was pretty blown away at the personal response from them.

In the not-so-distant past, loggers would cut down ten or more ebony trees to find one that was all-black. The streaked wood would then be left on the ground. Personally, I'd rather have a "streaked" ebony board on my guitar than to have that wood rot in the rainforest.

Nothing at all wrong with your board . . . I'd say, rather, what's flawed are the deeply ingrained standards of beauty and desirability to which we cling.

That's so shocking and deserves it's own thread which I will make from the video. I too am all for streaked ebony!

Re: EVH Wolfgang Stealth Ebony Fretboard

Fender ended up sending me a brand new guitar. Turns out the one I received was never supposed to be sold. It had been used for demos in Arizona for the new EVH amps, so was well used. It was put back in to stock my mistake. The new one is of the quality I expect from EVH.

My old 8 string has a pale moon ebony board. I actually prefer the white streaks in ebony over the jet black gabon ebony.
