Wolfgang holds its own

i have a USA wolfie standard with trem and it is becoming my main guitar at my gigs (classic rock/modern rock ,ect.). i have a 7DBK and plenty of great axes to use and the wolfie seems to be staying in my hands longer than the rest. it just plays and sounds fantastic!
i love my other axes and will always bring at least 2 or 3 with me to gigs, but the wolfie stays in tune longer and really compliments my playing and tone needs wonderfully!
i just had to say - "what a great, well-made guitar!"
i'm also eyeing the RGT2020SOL that i saw posted on Rich's website from NAMM. with the neck thru construction, side dot markers and beautiful wood grain- i think i'm getting another GAS attack!!
i'll be saving up and talking to Rich!!!

Music is something bigger and greater than myself and I'm just glad to be a part of it. -TJ

VERY cool!
post a pic and some info of who or how you striped it out when you get a chance- i'd love to see it!
do you have a USA special or a standard? i'm guessing a special since they seem easier to stripe.

A local guy (Todd) in my area is going to do it next month. And yes it is a Standard (the good one) I DO use the tone knob...

doesn't the standard have a figured top? why on earth would you cover that in a stripe pattern? unless of course you're using some sort of dye so you could still see the figuring... I wonder what that would look like...

the wolfgang seems like a nice guitar. maybe I should look into getting one some day...

some people just dont dig flamed or quilted maple *im not one of those people*, but it could be a beater wolfgang with alot of finish damage, or it could be the ivory and black model which dont have a figured top, but are a standard model. The wolfgang is a great guitar, just bought one myself, but i think i should have spent some dough on an amp

i haven't seen a standard with stripes- that could look really cool! i like the standard for a few reasons- one of which is that the D-tuna is more accessible because of the carved top than it is on the special.
you can get the standard with a flame-top OR a solid color. if you have one made at the the Peavey Custom Shop, you can have just about ANY finish you want - around $2K -$3K. i personally think Peavey is "overbuilding" (in regards to quality vs $) these guitars to get the word out about the high quality standards of the USA Peavey guitar builders and i think they aren't going to keep the Custom Shop around for more than a few years for that same reason.
Peavey has a cool "build your own Wolfgang" type of design software on their website that lets you see most of the options you choose. i have "cyber-built" probably a 100 or so different designs.
i hope to goto the Custom Shop while I have access thru the dealer that i work for.

if someone will host a pic of my wolfgang, i'll email the pic for this thread. i have it posted in another thread under, "GAS attack", if you want to see it in the meantime. it has nice bird's eye on the neck and a really nice flame top. i can't play my wolfie enough! (i still love my 7DBK too!)
