as far as speculation w/ Charvel - it is not speculation. Ed has signed with Charvel (actually Fender since they now own Charvel/Jackson). the fate of the Wolfgang is already sealed since Ed owns all the design patents on the instrument.
the Custom Shop is no longer taking orders and they closed the site to take inventory of what they have. they are finishing the orders that have been taken thus far and are not taking any more orders.
Peavey employees are buying up as many "vault" custom Wolfgangs as possible for collectors pieces. if you can't buy (afford) one now - you probably won't be able to in the future as they are only going to be offered 2nd hand with an inflated price tag.
most of this is happening as we speak. if you can lay your hands on the $ to buy a pre-made custom Wolfie - do it now as they are going FAST.
production models will continue thru Oct (when Eds' contract w/ Peavey is up) and production will close.
i have wanted a custom Wolf for awhile and have missed my chance unless i sell off a few of my most loved guitars - no way! i would only be able to "settle" for a pre-made Wolf custom and not get to choose what i want - which defeats why i want a custom in the first place.
i don't "collect" guitars, i play them. i have a family of guitars or maybe you can consider it an arsenal of guitars, but surely not a collection (now over 20 instruments).
there are still lots of production models available and most styles and colors can be had. you might be able to find one or call a Peavey dealer to have their rep find you one with those specs but you need to have the $ ready immediately.
sorry for the bad news - it was a gloomy day when i found out all this info over a week ago myself - right from the horses mouth - Peavey.
