    Default ATTENTION- All Peavey Wolfgang Gurus

    Im in need of a edumication.
    Here's why.
    Im a hardcore, oldschool, fan. Every change Van Halen went through since 1984 was always real hard to deal with. It took me till 1990 to buy 5150. I still havent heard every VH tune with Hagar. Some changes I cant yet. I have yet to hear a tune from VHIII.
    Mainly, since Im a guitar guy, its been Eddie's guitars that have been the toughest. It took me till 1993 to even consider checking out Eddie's Kramer 5150.
    Now Im ready to learn about the Peavey Wolfgang.
    This is what Im hoping you gurus can give me.
    Id like as many facts about the guitar as you all can think of.
    What years were they made.
    How many different finishes, color variations.
    Woods.
    Which are the most rare.
    Which ones are the best to have, player wise, and to collect.
    The Works.
    Anything you all can come up with to educate me on this axe.
    Pics are always cool too.

    I'll thank yous all in advance.

    Ron , checkout Rocknrollweekend , which used to be Wolfgangguitars.com . It was a great site till Geoff changed it over to rocknrollweekend. All the info you need is on there !

    Yeah, here's the site Doug is talking about. Go into each section of this site and you'll get quite a history on the Music Man's and Wolfgang's:

    Also, here's another great site that show's each guitar Ed has used along with a great summary of the progression from one guitar to the next:

    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    If you're following the evolution, wouldn't you check out the EBMM (EVH) before the Wolfgangs?

    Out of all my guitars I'll be forever in love with my Trans Amber Wolfie Standard. The neck on the Wolfie is an exact copy of the frankentien neck, so it felt broken in from day one. The Floyd Rose rests on the body, so you cant go sharp (pull up) and can only dive-bomb, but that works just fine for me. Changing strings is EASY and tuning to drop d with the D-tuna is a great feature.

    Here's another site for you. It has nothing to do with EBMM's or Wolfgang's but it is an incredible collection of VH guitars that some guy has built through the years. You'd think it's Ed's personal collection but it's not. It's pretty unbelievable.

    Ron:

    In the News Archive section of my website you can find the various profiles I've posted on each of my Wolfgangs: http://www.andrewthomas.net/archives. You'll have to sift through all of my guitar-geek observations, but there might be some useful info there with regard to some of the finer details.

    Great job on your Wolf profiles. Man, you've got some beautiful guitars.

    The Standard dark cherry burst and the Standard transparent blue really stand above them all. Amazing looking guitars.
