    Sure. It's a beautiful purple Wolfgang standard with a stoptail bridge...which I hope to upgrade to a Floyd Rose tremolo sometime soon.

    Please don't do that!!! You'll end up ruining the guitar. Just save up and get one with a Floyd. It's much safer that way.

    Why would that ruin the guitar?

    Why didn't you just buy one with the trem?

    Modifying the body to adapt for a trem means routing it for the trem cavity, and probably repositionning the bridge mounting studs. This could get pretty involved and needs to be done with great care so as to not chip the clear coat around the edges of the routed area.

    I would probably leave the ST in place and get another guitar with a trem. This way you can have an axe in standard tuning and another tuned half a step lower to do all the early VH stuff. Just a thought...
    My first time in the spotlight was from a helicopter.

    EVH: Definitely. Playing guitar was my sanctuary. It was the one place I could go to if I got fucked around by a girlfriend, or anyone else, for that matter. It still is. If thereís something I canít deal with, I can just spend hours playing. Itís a God-given gift Ė I certainly donít know where the ideas come from. Theyíre obviously given to you, and you have to keep your fingers moving and your mind quiet. I try my best to not think about thinking, so I can just let it flow. Because when I start thinking, forget it. <br />So....why he isn't playing guitar ? ? ?

    I am not expert, but I am alwasys surprised how few times I actualy put my bar on. In the early days, I'd dream about having a floyd set up like Ed's, now I have it (Wolfie) and I don't even screw the bar in 80% of the time.

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Keep the stop-tail bro, if for no other reason than string changes and ease of tuning.

    In fact, if you're gonna modify anything, change the tuners on it.....buy some locking ones.

    Good for you !
    I just got my second one today,Red flame w/ trem!
    I think I use the bar alot on my wolfie, cause you can really hit those harmonic dive bombs, and the damn thing NEVER goes out of tune! God I love these instruments.It's worth every penny, not just because it has Eddie's name on it either,quality is quality!
    Congrats [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Ok. I'm gonna take your guys' advice and leave my Wolfgang unaltered. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Next topic: How about giving me some suggestions of where I can order some cool locking tuners and volume/tone control knobs?

    Congrats Bro,

    I've had my Goldtop for about a year and a half and it has the best neck I've ever touched.
    Like Jimmy, I too rarely screw in the tremolo.
    Glad you're keeping the tail.

    Peace
