Peavey HP Special Wolfgang Replacement

There is some info on the Peavey News site about the new HP Special that replaces the Wolfgang line.

http://www.peavey.com/news/wnamm05_hp_special.cfm

The more I look at it the more it seems to grow on me. I wouldn't mind picking one up with a rosewood or ebony board.

They look pretty much the same dont they really. Very little difference from a glance. They have only made silly little mods and changes so that they can carry-on with the line! They look alright, but not for me really!

Re: Peavey HP Special Wolfgang Replacement

You know, when i see "HP", i think of computers and printers... not guitars.

I think they've lost some of the distinctiveness of the Wolfgang, but maybe EVH owned the rights to the body shape.

The Floyd routing looks...odd. Looks like there's a route just around the mounting posts.

It's probably a flush-mounted Floyd, and those are the stud inserts you're seeing.

The specs say that it's a floating Floyd.

I'm pretty sure it's a route. If you look on the gold guitar in the magnified image, you can see a groove running right under the front edge of bridge.

Well, the fact that the guitar has coil-taps and a tone knob is all worth the change! I thought the Wolfgang had such limited features that it just wasn't worth blowing a grand to unless you're buying it for the name. Now that the kind folks at Peavey finally broke free from Eddie's flimsy preferences, i think the guitar will do a working man great favors! Congrats Peavey!

I like the CT! Not too fond of the flat top, in that shape, though. That's just from seeing those two pics, so maybe I'll like it better in person.
