Re: NGD - Frankie EVH Replica
I've never been huge on the Wolfgang really, and I've always loved Strats. I think maybe if the right Wolfgang type came along at the right price used maybe I'd consider it but they just don't get my juices flowing, maybe I need to play one to see if I like it. Not sure what are considered the best betweeen MM, Peavey and EVH but those early MM ones go for a lot.
I ended up just setting it up to float, it stays in tune now. I lose use of the D-tuna this way but I just don't know how to get around the issue.
You can toss EVH wolfangs out of that conversation lol.
Ive a few of both the EBMM and Peavey iterations (including an EBMM EVH)... I can basically summarize it as... EBMM's play better, and Wolfgangs sound better. Its real dumb lol. Wolfgangs are much cheaper for some reason though, and they play great; Im just splitting hairs really. That said, I dunno what the deal is with the EVH, but the string spacing is bonkers and the strings are REALLLLLLLLLL close to the fretboard edge lol. I didnt enjoy mine. I think my wolfgangs are real pretty but they arent the figured ones; albeit i have owned a few of them. I think in general, the EBMM is the better average instrument, but the Wolfgang is usually a MUCH better value. Ive yet to play an EVH wolfgang that I appreciated.
I retopped an axis here, lost it in my house fire tho :-/ (EDIT: Oh yeah, Sterling Ball actually asked me to remove the headstock decal for it, thats why shes naked there).
