    The guy sounds completely anal retentive about how he cared for it (I do a lot of the same stuff to keep my Wolfs clean and maintained, just not EVERY time I change the strings), and that may or may not be a good thing. (Probably a good thing...) If it goes for $1,000 or less, go for it. It's probably worth a little more, but there are a lot of gloss black Wolfgangs out there. It's also a very early one--either late '97 or early '98, which means it'll be solid. My gloss black Wolfgang Standard has a very close serial number to that one, and it's been a ROCK. He's replaced the original ivory tuning buttons (probably because they're very prone to cracking) with chrome buttons.

    Yeah, I'm liking the first one too.

    Might have to apply for the ebay credit card so i won't have to pay until next year! (i'm the king of defermant!)

    but by the time I get the card the auction will be over

    I guess I need to give the wife a back rub tonight

    Got my black Wolf Special on ebay for $550. Great guitar. My favorite guitar actually. My archtop used to kill my shoulder when I played it. Can't go wrong for the price, and the killer custom painted case.

    this old timer I work with said I should look at Paul Reed Smith guitars

    I've always been a Les Paul/Strat guy but I'm tired of playing single coil strats and I'm not sure I want the weight of a Les Paul--unless it's a really cool old one

    The "old timer" is right.
    If you're on a budget, do yourself a favor and check out the PRS Singlecut SE's. They're much lighter than a Les Paul, they look and sound great, and they're only around $600 new.

    The first one you posted is a standard (arch top). The next 2 are specials, one being an import.

    Go with the standard, the black one.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    Go down to a store and play a PRS guitar before you buy one first. I've found that most people either love 'em or hate 'em. Me? I hate 'em. Tone is pretty thin.

    I agree...PRS is not thick sounding guitar plus the neck heel is so thick...not good for soloing

    yeah, I wouldn't buy one of those without playing it. I don't think I've ever played one before.

    I've piddled around on the Wolfgang before so I know what that thing is all about

    My last band I was in ... 6 years ago, we had 2 guitarists. We both had Line6 halfstacks (which I still have), I had a wolf (still my main guitar) and he had a PRS. I've heard different things about them, good and bad, just like any guitar, but it sounded thin to me...imo. But you won't know unless you play it. Anybody can tell you what's good, etc. But just play it to find out for yourself. Maybe that's why my current 6 year old band( with my drummer I had from the previous band ), I'm the only one that plays guitar annoying second guitarists.

    The yellow one is a made in korea wolf! You can tell because its a quilt top thats a photo quilt, and has a cheap licensed floyd rose! They sold new for $599 MSRP, but you could pick them up for less! I'd pay maybe $300-$350!
