    I heard from a friend that there are Wolfgang specials Flame Tops going for 2 grand. now I know that at some over priced stores Wolf standards can get to 2,000$ but Never a special! Have they inflated that much? I think they told me it was at a guitar center. I was thinking I might get a Special flame or a used standard for like 900 maybe 1,000. Now I might just pass on that for the time being and just go get something else. Now grated I havent been to the store in three months(Thank you 2 sets of elixer strings) but I'll defnitly need to see if it is just guitar center being overpriced.

    That sounds like the Guitar Center. They'll usually find the retail price and tack another 400. onto it.
    Check Ebay. You can probably pick up a US special for around 500., or a standard for 6-700.
    There's never a shortage of them on there.

    Well the two Flame Top Specials hanging on the
    wall at my local dealer, been there for almost a
    year, are tagged at $875. It's worth what you'll
    pay for it I guess.

    Maybe it's a marketing ploy. By selling the standard and flame top special at over inflated prices that the guitar is worth nowhere near, it makes the new "International" model seem like a really good deal. Maybe they're hoping that consumers will by a ton of the new cheaper models before they realize what junk they've bought.
    If what Rols says is true and they're using very low grades of basswood on they're standards and specials, then imagine the material that's gonna go into these international models. Basswood is very inexpensive and there's no shortage of it so it shouldn't be hard to at least get a large supply of good wood without resorting to using green, and improperly dried wood.
    If this keeps up I can see Peavey eventually marketing their guitars out of K-mart.
