    Just for curiosity can someone verify this? I saw this one this morning. If it gets taken down from ebay I have a copy of it saved.

    Wasn't EVH's striped Wolfgang a special? I know painting this this would be hard woth the binding .Also wasn't the back was striped on his?

    It could be one of the original ones that Eddie said looked "too nice."
    The striped Wolf(s) that Eddie played were definitely Specials though.

    Sorry, it's bogus.

    Peavey NEVER gave away any striped Wolfs. There were only two done at the factory, and both were Specials. Ed has one, the other one hangs over at Hartley's office.

    The serial number would give it away. Funny how you can't see that in the description or the pics. The pickups don't look stock either.

    I thought ebay wasn't letting anyone sell these?

    Oh well, I guess if you had $8500 that you wanted to throw away...

    Talk about someone trying rip people off. No way is a wolfgang worth that much, even if Ed himself handed it to me.

    Ouch. I guess Eddie's lawyers will have that off shortly.
    rcrimm would know a counterfeit, and that's definately one.
    Even if it wasn't that's a rediculous price to pay or charge for one because it has stripes.
    maybe the seller got taken in himself and he's trying to recover his loss.

    well if only 2 or 3 were made it doesn't look anything like the one i saw. ed used the striped one when they were in vegas on the III tour. i saw pics of it somewhere and the guitar ed had didn't look anything like this one

    besides, isn't the birdseye maple on the flametop wolfie's and not the special? i have a special and it's hardrock maple, not birdseye maple.

    like you guys said, the striped one ed played damn well looked to be a special to me.

    wonder if anyone can dig up that pic..lemme see if i can find it

    Peavey did make a striped Wolfgang and had Edward give it away when they introduced the original Wolfgang at NAMM. I donít know if this ebay one is it, but I saw a picture of it in an old Peavey mail out.

    That is the way that GMW will paint a standard
    Wolfgang if you send it to them, there are humdreds of those paint jobs out there, they will
    do it for $600 so the guy probably has well under $2000 in that guitar (or the guy that sold it to him) GMW used to have a picture of it on thier website along with all the other VH's they did 'er a do.
