    Default How to better improve your Wolfie?

    I've been wondering if any of you had improved things on your Wolfgang...I don't think too much of my Peavey Floyd Rose (I hear that the quality of the Licensed Roses are sub par compared to the real deal), the plain 3 x 3 Machine heads, and I know someone that can do one hell of a repaint on those are the things I want to do to my Wolfgang Special. I have repainted the control cavities with Stewart-MacDonald Conductive Shielding Paint (The copper in the cavities seemed a bit too weak), and I rewired the toggle switch to make it normal-neck PU up, bridge PU down. Anyone else got suggestions? Thanks! -Red43j

    P.S. What can I do about this noize I get from my Wolfie...its the Floyd. I'll tune up and I get a dull sound from the G string...sounds like a spring problem, BC I've since stuffed Tissue Paper in the back under the srtings to deaden the sound, and its not as bad, but this can't be a solution-can it?
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    Every Wolfgang I've played (Special and Standard) has played like a dream after my tech was done with it. Having a locking tremolo guitar is high maitenance to begin with, anyway. You just have to get it touched up by a pro once every 2 or 3 months to make sure you're getting the best out of it. That's what I do, anyway. But, I also change my strings every 2 weeks to keep things bright, as well.

    I thank goodness for my Les Paul's sometimes!
