    Can't really tell from the picture. If memory serves me correctly, they did not make a Purple Korean Quilt top Special, but they did make a Purple American Flame-Top Special. If this guitar is Purple, it should be an American Flame-Top Special, in which case, this is a steal for the price. If I'm wrong, and they did make a purple Korean quilt top special, the price is probably okay even then.

    I think it's a blue quilt Korean (they didn't make a purple Korean). Hard to tell from the pic for sure though. Good guitar either way, but you can always find a cheaper one if necessary.

    From the photo it looks Korean to me too and id say that's a cheapie.
    Not worth 6 bills to me.
    Ive played one and thought it just felt and looked cheap.

    It's a Korean EXP. Stay away from it. They're $400 guitars at the most and truly NOT representative of the quality of the USA-made Peavey Wolfgangs.

    from the picture it looks like the USA Wolfie Special that i had . i think it was the deluxe model ?

    i don't think there was an EXP version in a purple flame ?
    BTW , i've owned 2 USA Wolfie specials and 4 EXP models ....

    i liked all of them for different reasons , but the one that felt the best and most comfortable to me was a tobacco sunburst EXP ...

    I put a EVH Wolfgang pickup set in it and an LSR nut and Schaller pearloid locking tuners and am going to be putting an original Floyd rose on it soon. Thing screams. It's awesome.

    Ya. The floyd looks like the EXP version.

    What should, and I say should even though they aren't, an EXP go for?

    Up in Canada they are priced like this...

    EXP - 600 - 900
    USA Special - 550 - 800

    Craziness I tells ya
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    They wanted 599 for it. And they had a crazy colored charvel that was a neon green for the same price that was a lot "hotter" in terms of sound. Which I looked at. It had an ofr and duncans in it.

    The Wolfgang EXP is a definate step up from the OLP. They're passed off as junk on these boards for some reason, but they're a solid guitar. If you can find one for a decent price I wouldn't tell anyone not to pick one up. Hell, I bought one in '02 when they just came out (which was at full freaking price) but I can't say I regret it. I don't have any complaints about it. Plays like a mother...
