    Yeah, right. Not unless it's a Custom Shop. Note the terrible pictures that show no detail of the guitar.

    I don't know. In one of the pictures of the horn you can see wood grain through the finish. Don't know if that makes it more legit. But I noticed that.

    But still you'd think the person would take better pictures to ensure people bid.

    yeah, I think this is a case of the guy just taking shitty photos. He offers to give folks the serial number and to provide better/more detailed photos.

    I don't think there's anything on that auction that jumps up and yells "fake" or "dishonest."
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Where is AT when you need him? That guitar is legit. It is a Flametop Special with a painted black top. That is why there is a natural binding. There are a few of those out there. I am not sure why they painted some of the tops on these black (maybe the tops had bad flame patterns).

    Here is another one.

    You always know the answers to these ones too, dude.

    It IS legit. There were a handful of maple top BLACK USA Wolfgang Specials released. They were only ever painted black if a top was rejected for one reason or another--either the wood figuring was flawed or there was a problem with the dye. I've seen maybe seven or eight ever. (I once missed buying one on eBay for a buy-it-now of $400! I talked myself out of it at the time. I regretted it then and still regret it now.)

    The one on the Chris' Guitars website was modified; the pickup rings were added when the original owner put SD Phat Cats in it. Chris knows the pickups sell those guitars, so he usually installs originals if he ever gets one in that doesn't have them.

    Arch top Peavey Wolfgangs ("Standards") were painted either vintage gold or seafoam green if a maple top was rejected. (ALL vintage gold and seafoam green Wolfgangs have maple tops.) A few--a VERY few--were painted black.

    I usually know the answer but people like to hear it from you, the Wolfgang Wizard.

    I still regret selling both my USA Wolfgang Specials. I miss the days when you could get a nice one for $400. Who knows maybe Ed is working on a new Special.

    The rumor is that EVH is working on one--there will be some sort of cheaper Wolfgang introduced perhaps at winter NAMM. Of course, there's no way it will be in the same price range as the Peaveys. My guess is the "cheaper" Wolfgang will be around $1,500.

    It seems like the new Black and White EVH's are selling for much less then the asking price now. I've seen some go for close to $2000. The Sunbursts are going for more but I am not sure if that is because there are a lot less being made or if people that buy them are keeping them. I know a lot of online dealers never have any in stock. If a new Special does come out I hope that the prices come down like the other new ones have.

    Here's something crazy: I haven't even played one of the new ones yet. I haven't even seen one in person. It wouldn't be hard to get over to one of the music stores around that carry them, but the thing is so untouchable for me, it's not even worth it right now. If they sold closer to $2,100 or so originally, I perhaps would have saved my pennies by now. But $3,000-plus was just so ridiculous, I basically just wrote it off and said: "Maybe a used one someday." I have no doubt they're very well made and good instruments; buying one just wasn't in the financial plan when I saw the prices.
