    Is this the USA Special or the Korean?
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    I have the USA and love it. I think the Korean has "EXP" in the name, if you need to know how to tell the difference.

    If it's the USA version, than yes that's a good price. I grabbed mine for about 525, or something like that, and it's my favorite guitar. I like it better than my Wolf Standard, and I payed a ton for that axe.

    I could go all day about the pro's and con's, but I don't have time cuz I'm at work. You can use the search option and look up old threads that we've had on the subject.

    And you can go to www.harmony-central.com and read the many reviews on the Wolf Special.

    Transparent finishes are not all built in Korea!
    USA are Flame tops
    Korea are Photo quilt tops with a Cheaper Floyd Rose
    Also Eddies sig on the back of the USA necks are branded or burned into the neck!
    The Korean ones have a decal of Ed's sig!
    Hope this helps!

    Pipe down, son. I've had two EXP's, and had to sell them both. They're both ok guitars, and can be used in a live setting, but once you play a USA model you'll instantly hear and feel the difference.

    Damn this buying of mine seems to never end =)

    I've found that Wolfgang Standard, which is Black and seems to be in good shape, for only 900$ its really good.

    But for me, a important thing is that Floyd Rose, and i'll miss it bad on that Wolfgang Standard, but anyway, its so great quality, so I have a hard time choose.

    Because I've found another Wolfgang Special for about the same price as the first one I found (but it was an EXP) this might be an Wolfgang SPecial USA, If It now would reveal to be a USA version, which one should i go for?
