NGD - EVH Gear Wolfgang Special

For anyone who had been following this thread, I finally picked up my new guitar on Saturday - EVH Gear (Fender) Wolfgang Special in Tobacco Burst.

In a sentence - I couldn't be happier.

Re: NGD - EVH Gear Wolfgang Special

Very nice indeed!!! Congratulations on your new axe! I've heard the necks on those guitars are maple buttery goodness Also good to see that you're letting it get some California sunshine...we haven't seen much of that big orange orb in the sky here for awhile ;o)

You have heard correctly - it's ridiculously comfortable, and fast to play on. I don't know what exactly it is, because schematics of it are hard to find, but something about is it just...orgasmic.

Sweet Axe, I was not a fan of the headstock to begin with but I like it now.

You know, I've read a hundred forum posts about it. Apparantly, you either really like it, or really hate it.

Personally, I think it's simply "different," and yes, I know that's a relative terms, because compared to the Peavey Models, the only thing that's "different" is the fact that it's now cut out instead of beveled in.

It's not a banana / hockey stick Kramer. Its not a treble-clef Fender. Its not the Ibanez Sword. It's just a different headstock (with the serial numbers etched into the bottom. Is it an EBMM / Axis? Kinda, but not really (it's 3/3 vs 4/2)

It's just...different. And I like it.

Re: NGD - EVH Gear Wolfgang Special

It's a fish head or possibly a bottle opener. I liked the Peavey carve out better from a cosmetic point of view but this is okay. I certainly wouldn't turn one down. The neck is ridiculous comfortable. I got to play one of the standards a couple of years ago and it was just creamy goodness, sooooo easy to play it actually hurt to put it down.

Re: NGD - EVH Gear Wolfgang Special

Isn't the headstock just the Peavy Wolfgang headstock with the scoop cut right out?

Yup. But the scoop looks cooler. I don't know why...

Convenient that you have a bottle opener at the end of you headstock...

Re: NGD - EVH Gear Wolfgang Special

I dunno. I'm sure it plays well but I'm just not a fan of the way the Wolfgang looks. But the important thing is what erasetheprocess thinks cos he's the one that forked out the cash.

Re: NGD - EVH Gear Wolfgang Special

Wouldn't turn one down and didn't. The same guitar is on it's way to me as we speak. Got a heckuva deal on it and couldn't say no. So I'm joining your Wolfgang Happiness Party.
