I now have a MINT Wolfgang standard USA w/ a highly flamed maple top in vintage sunbusrt I just added to my family!!
I found an ad that a guy just posted on a couple of websites and immediately emailed him. He responded with a phone # and so I called him up.
He said he had only posted the ads minutes before and was only wanting $650 shipped w/ original case for the guitar. I was nervous as to why he was selling it so cheap (usually $1649 NEW and $900 average used), and there was a possibility of the instrument be a real lemon. He had changed the pickups out to EMG 81 and 89's and had put chrome Schallers on it to replace the pearl button tuners. He said there were no mods done to the guitar other than the pups and the tuners and there had been no routing done for the EMG's.
I went ahead with the deal and when the guitar arrived I almost pi**ed myself!! The guitar was gorgeous!!
I immediately called Peavey (I am an authorized dealer) and had them send out a replacement EVH neck pup and a couple new saddles to replace the couple that had very minor corrosion. I then found someone selling a creme/blk Tone Zone neck pup and made sure that was on the way as well.
Almost a week later I had all the needed parts and started putting it together. I left the push/pull pot in it to switch the EVH pup to series single coils. It sounds GREAT!! I'm very happy with the Tone Zone!! I was recommended the TZ from other Jemsters and my thanks goes out!
If I knew how to link a pic with this post I'd show it off- but sadly
, I'm no wiz on the computer.
Any help would be appreciated!!
