Feeling oncoming GAS attack...


Okay, it's time, I guess. I'm thinking of buying a wolfgang special. The thing is, next year I'll get some tax-repay and the wolfgang specials are selling for 475 (which is about the same in $) here. Go figure! I'm more than tempted!

What exactly are the most outstanding differences on the special to the normal one? I know archtop and tone-pot but what else? I've only played a normal one that also only had a volume knob (with an amp) and a special without an amp. Are there any big tonal differences? What kind of pickups? Any differences? Are there only maple fretoards, or also rosewood?

It wouldn't be my main guitar, that will always be the Jem but as back-up for d-tuned songs for example...

Waiting for some enlightenment .
