    Default Wheres the new EVH Wolfgang?

    Anybody have any info if this guitar is still being released. I was reading over at the Kramer forum that Ed is not happy how the new Wolfgang is coming along.

    No secret there.

    I predicted a short-lived relationship between EvH and Fender a long time ago.
    I wouldn't be surprised if the "new" Wolfgang never materializes at all.
    And to be honest ... from what I've seen, I don't think I'd be all that disapointed.

    I thought you liked the design of the NEW Wolfgangs, Dino? The Ivory one looked pretty slick imo.

    Wonder what the hold up could be.

    The ivory one does look pretty slick.
    But it looks too much like the Peavey IMO.
    I think I was just expecting (hoping for) an all new design.

    Also consider the fact that this guitar has been hyped up for over a year now and still no product. It's pretty bad when the "newness" of a "new" product wears off before it even becomes available.

    Was'nt there some talk over at "That other forum where everyone kisses Ed's ass" that he is hearing things a little different nowadays. As in before when he was three sheets to the wind the sound was great and they "get it", and now that he's more back to his previous state of mind the sound just ain't cutt'n it. There was supposedly a huge amount of money dropped on the new pickup's R&D, so I could see how that can strain a working relationship. Especially starting from square one again. Who knows. I can see this being a factor. Also, on the tour clips, you saw him do alot of fucked up things to the neck wich would imply an attachment problem. When I saw him do the headstock into the floor routine several times on tour, it got me to thinking if it is a 4 bolt neck joint. I doubt it, but why would he be having these problems if it is like the Peavey Wolfgang? There's something weird going on.

    If this guitar is designed anything like the non-american "standard" Fender strats I have played, then it is no surprise that he has resorted to banging the headstock on the floor

    I have found that the neck tolerances are so loose that they can move laterally even when bolted down hard. You've gotta wonder if he was banging the necks back into place, because even a fraction of a milimeter of movement can cause your string/neck alignment to go all the way off the fretboard!

    Also, the neck shift problems lead to some serious tuning stability problems. With him having the Floyd on there, the effects are probably a lot less noticable, but those new strats will have tiny neck shifts, and go annoyingly far out of tune within literally 1 minute of play.

    I can't imagine which forum you are referring to.

    I believe the "relationship" was strained even prior to Ed getting clean, but I could be wrong.

    I do remember Ed sanding the finish off one of the "prototypes" and writing "SHIT" on the top during this last tour.
    Maybe that was a "sign".

    It's really hard to say what the issues are but I think we can probably all agree that Ed is probably not the easiest person to work with.

    I'm confused.
    You started a thread stating that you bought the new Wolfgang?
    Were you kidding? Did you mean a Peavey?

    Yeah... You got a little good-natured "welcome" wash.

    I currently have one of the Mexican Fender Wolfgangs and one of the Indonesian Fender Wolfgangs. I'm hoping to get my hands on one of every color of the Korean and Chinese versions.
