    So......when we first heard about these Imports.....we heard a retail price of $800........

    Now that you can snag one for under $500......would anyone consider picking one up as an OK back up........
    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

Maybe the Korean Wolfs in retail stores are cheaper than the US ones! My local peavey dealer only has US ones.
    The Korean jobs at my local Peavey dealer are $599 and the US specials are $799 < what a joke.
    yes you can get used specials for around $500 but
    where have you seen them for $400 new ?? that has to be a typo since dealers pay around $500 for them

    since i've just started learning to play guitar since early january this year, i was very curious about the new korean wolfgang...
    so i went down to the local music shop where i bought my current guitar, a peavey predator plus hb, and sat down with a guy that works there, and we played some with my guitar, a new korean wolfie with the floyd rose setup, and a U.S. wolfie with stop tailpiece... in my opinion, the feel was very similar between all 3 guitars...
    now, i have very experienced ears from some studio and a lot of live mixing on soundboards, and am pretty good at hearing tones... i gotta say here that i am very impressed by the korean wolfie... i will grant that there is a very minimal difference in tone that most folks may never notice, but i am very seriously considering picking one up...
    my predator was only a $259 guitar (cash discounted price), but for my playing experience level, it rocks as good as the korean wolfie, but there's just something missing there...

    as far as quality goes, i didn't notice any difference in quality between all 3 guitars... the US wolfie was a green flame top and very pretty, but actually had the roughest finish of the 3... the korean wolfie was a very beautiful transparent red quilt top and had an immaculate finish... my predator is a metallic blue painted finish and is absolutely perfect in finish quality, too...
    but the US wolfie definitely had the prettiest birdseyed maple neck i've ever seen, the korean wolfie had no noticeable birdseye in it at all...

    so, i guess for $550, i've gotta try to get that korean wolfie... i think it'll do just fine for now... especially until i learn how to kick ass and take names like the big boys... lol

    Yeah, you've got a good chance of hittin a US Special for five, that's a given...

    But it's gonna be awhile before the Wolfgang Kemshee Special arrives on EBay.

    If I was Dave, and could spare an extra 200 bucks, I'd snag that fuckin Amber Special Flametop for $750 on Ebay. Or fuck it, take a chance with the bidding, but $750 is a pretty damn good buy it now price if you ask me.

    yes you see wolfgang specials before the auctions have ended for under $500 but look in the completed items, only one sold for under $500 and it was used not *new* most all the other used spec sold for $600 or more the one that had under that didn't sell.
    Rol.
    most sold for $600 plus used

    i know the money difference is not all that big of a deal, (well, for me right now it is,) but i really prefer to buy something i can see, feel and taste, especially with my inexperience as of now as a player... plus i wanna support my local dealer, they've been exceptionally patient with me and extremely helpful... they've never treated me like some dumb-ass who doesn't know anything (at least not to my face)...
    plus where else am i gonna get a red quilt at that price???

    peace...
