    Just visited the Peavey site and went through a couple of run-throughs in picking options for Wolfgangs. Not looking to buy, but a guy can dream eh? There's some interesting alternatives as far as wood types and finishes, and other options. All pretty much what had been discussed here in the past. The one option that caught my eye was picking out a headstock color that would match the color of the body...

    wow, pretty cool. I just went through it to build my ideal wolfgang [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/bounce.gif[/img] . Anyone know how to ball park translate the prices from suggested retail to what you'd really pay from the dealer/store though?

    I know the site had some problems with how they originally set up the prices. Apparently they were adding the new prices on top of the old ones.
    I don't know if they remedied it yet, but I was told to take about 1000. off the MSR price for the actual price.

    Hmm that means the one I tinkered with on there comes out at about $1100 give or take. I went simple with a solid alder metallic peackock blue body w/binding, birdseye neck/fb, matching headstock, dot inlays. Thats not bad at all for a custom model. Here's the pic, but it doesn't show the matching headstock, and that was the main thing I wanted to see.

    LarryJ, that's what I was told, but the dealer would have to decide on that, and 1100 seems a little low, so I don't know if that would apply in this case. From what you described 1100 might be a bit low, and although I can't see the dealer charging you the price on the peavey site it's hard to say how much they'd come down without talking to them first.

    Yeah, that is kind of low. I'm thinking since the grand total ends up at $2100, a more realistic final price would be $1500-$1600.

    Generally, I wouldn't expect dealers to take off more than 30% off the price you get from Peavey.
    And they did fix the pricing problem, so what your total is now is the cost of the guitar minus any dealer discounts.
