I've got an amber Standard, and I really like it.
My 2 cents:
A really solidly built, quality guitar.
I really like the pickups. Very subjective: Overall, to me the guitar sounds not too midrangey, bassy but still with definition. However, unplugged the low E may sound a bit tubby. But I like it a lot. Clean or dirty, I like the sound.
The neck feels great to me, narrow but clubby (although some may not like the oil-finished neck as it can get dirty quite easily).
I also like the flat-mounted Floyd and D-tuna. Once set up it works nicely. I know it can be made to float, of course, but the Wolfie works best that way.
At the same time, there are some things that don't quite fit me; I find it a bit bottom-heavy, balance-wise, and being used to the comfy jem/uv shape, the back of the Wolfie digs into the ribs a bit.
Invariably the comparison with the EB EVH or Axis will come up. Can't comment on the Axis, but I also owned the original EB EVH. They do feel very different (to me). The Wolfie neck feels a bigger and slightly wider than the EB. I do miss the EB's neck. I prefer the EB's toggle switch location over the Wolfie. But both are real good guitars and can be appreciated on their own merit.
Overall, I like the Wolfie a lot. The ivory one looks real nice too. Wouldn't mind having one myself.
