    Default EVH Wolfgang

    I got this a few weeks ago and I like it a lot. I thought some of you might want to see what it looks like next to the Peavey.

    Overall, as far as looks are concerned, I like the EVH better. But the back of the neck on the Peavey smokes the EVH's away...

    That was my thoughts.
    I thought the Fender was "a different body alltogether".
    Look very much alike to me.
    And Im a guitar guy.

    Okay, Seriously DTNA, You've had an opportunity to play both side-by-side.

    The Peavey went for about what, $1200-$1400 brand new?

    The EVH is selling for $2700 on the low side new.

    Are there really $1500 worth of improvements to the Peavey design, in your opinion?

    Aside from the 5-ply binding, the notch in the headstock, and the rock-maple neck, there's not any noticable construction differences. I did notice the neck profile is different, which, to me, would be the only thing that would be a signifigant difference to me from one to the other.

    aesthetically speaking, I like the binding and the notched headstock of the EVH. It has a very classy, polished look to it.

    I haven't played one yet to have an opinion on sound or feel.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I also prefer the look of the Fender but they are both beautiful guitars.
    That Fender has a sweet top on it. Beautiful finish.

    Both Guitars are right around 1 and 5/8 inches thick. The Fender might be slightly thicker. However, I also have a black Peavey Wolfgang that was made an 2004 and that is thicker then both of the others.

    They look really close...

    THe new EVH has stainless steel frets and the frets are vintage sized...

    That alone would make me want to Peavey or EBMM.

    I hate vintage frets.

    I think it is a complete rip off with these current prices. Cmon...3k for a bolt on neck guitar? Excuse me but that's total BS.

    I have a feeling the prices will be coming down and you already see some selling cheaper on ebay. I emailed around and price shopped and I didn't pay close to the original prices they were going for.

    Some of the components do feel better then the Peavey. I think it is hard to compare the new prices between the Peavey and EVH Wolfgang though because the Peavey has already been out of production for nearly 5 years already and the first ones are nearly 13 years old. Maybe it would be easier to compare the prices between the Peavey HP Special and the new EVH.

    I'm sorry but anybody that likes the EVH neck to the Wolfgang neck needs to get their heads checked IMHO

    That neck makes me want to puke.
