    Default Peavey Wolfgang Volume / Tone Cavity Writing

    Hi.

    Does anyone know what the writing inside the tone/volume cavity of a Peavey Wolfgang means?

    Mine says "Eddies"....

    The attached has a number...( pic just for reference so you know where I mean)

    Thanks

    So again, if someone could tell me what the "Eddies" means, that would be great.

    Thanks

    Well first off where did you get the guitar ? The name " eddie " in the cavity to me says that it was made to be sent to eddie himself. I don't know much detail on " really rare " oddball Peavey's.

    Aldo what is the regualr serial # on the back of the headstock ? And have you had the neck off ? There also might be some details in the neck pocket or on the back of the heel too.

    The other thing I noticed is that is a real nice flame maple under the paint too. You can see the figure. And it looks strong.




    Off to watch the game !!!

    Yeah, I would think that means it was at some point meant to be Ed's guitar. When you can, check the neck pocket and see if it's signed "Tim L."

    I have two Wolfgangs that were built for Ed--both custom shop models. One actually made it to him and the other didn't. Both have exceptional flame tops and also original Floyd Rose locking nuts.

    anyone could have written that in there IMHO. maybe even you...

    Either way, if it was meant for him or not, that is the best looking Wolf I have ever seen. I LOVE that color. Wasn't it on ebay recently?

    The EDDIES is written under the finish, not on top.

    So, here is the answer I got from Peavey...

    The guitar was made for Eddie Van Halen specifically.

    So, WOW...

    Very cool. I heard once that Eddie was sent about 200 Wolfgangs over nine years or so. The black violet one I've got that did indeed make it to 5150 he sent back and asked to have a new neck put on it. It's my understanding the neck did get changed, but the guitar was never sent back to him again (because it was late 2004 and the deal with Peavey was ending).

    AT...does this make one made for EVH more valuable, or just a cool thing to have?

    I want to play it, but it's absolute mint and would be scared to play it if it could be worth more.

    I think that depends on the buyer. I personally think it's very cool to have a Peavey Wolfgang that was meant to be for Ed. Of course he never saw it, so instead it's just a great Wolfgang made by the guys who put together almost all of Eddie's. (Tim Litchfield built the majority of Ed's Peavey Wolfs.) Still, I couldn't help but notice the awesome flame under that paint job. Gold and seafoam Wolfgangs were usually painted those colors because for one reason or another the top had been rejected for a transparent finish. You got one that clearly didn't need to be.

    I'd say play the thing. It's a great guitar--meant to played. Take care of it, and it should hold decent value as long as the wear is basically just player's wear.

    So not to bring up an old thread of mine, BUT....I just found out from Peavey that this guitar, my beautiful Seafoam, was the first ever Peavey Wolfgang made in Seafoam. # 1 of 2 that went to EVH himself.
