Recently I bought a new ride off the 'Bay: a circa 2002-ish Peavey Wolfgang Special EXP with a trans-black-quilt deck.
She's in dead mint - I'm talking shipping plastic still on the 'tronics covers, no dings, no scratches, not even a finger print on the finish mint - condition and plays like an absolute dream. This may very well be the last guitar I ever buy. I've already upgraded some of the hardware to my liking and I plan on eventually dumping the Korean Schaller clone Floyd for a German made Gotoh GE1996T when my assets are a little more liquid. But for now, I'm in love. The neck is perfect for my hand and playing is almost effortless. It's like I've finally found a guitar that I don't have to, for lack of a better phrase, fight with anymore. I have literally played this guitar more in the month I've had her than the last two guitars combined over the last 10 years.
The only problem is that she has no name. My friends and fellow musicians have always named my girls for me and, being a predominantly metal player, my axes have tended to sport violent names like, 'The Asphalt Daemon,' 'The Chainsaw,' and 'The Punisher.' However, since I don't play in a band anymore and none of my friends are really musicians, I am having trouble pinning a moniker on her. Besides which, she is, at least to me, a bit more elegant than those prior names imply. The pictures below really don't do her justice, but have a look.
So, waddaya think? If anyone could help me give her a name I'd be very appreciative.
