    Default Just got a $750 EVH wolfgang

    Last week I found this on ebay in Humble TX right outside Houston where I live. I drove and picked it up for $750 and its as good as new. EVH shipping box and all. It has no signs of wear or being played by the original owner! At first it did sound a little cheap, especially when I played it through all my small amps, Line 6, Fender, and Marshall. It wasn't until I plugged it into my big amp the guitar really came alive. Only with the small amps its a bright sounding guitar, but the tone knob takes care of that issue just fine. I really think the guitar belongs with a full sized tube amp. With my Mesa amp this guitar sounds perfect in all 3 channels. After a few hours this has become one of my favorites for sure. Unplugged it sounds loud and clear. It was worth the wait to find a wolfgang this cheap for sure! Just my opinion for those still thinking about getting one of these nice guitars.

    It was listed on ebay from Humble, but I met this nice guy at Taco Bell on JFK Blvd. to make the purchase.

    Just went back and read that part. Sorry.

    Did he say why he was selling? Especially at what appears to be a loss.

    Never get anything with rice at Taco Bell.
    The rice always takes over the whole burrito.

    I don't know man, the grilled stuffed burrito (minus pico tomatoes) is pretty damn good. Especially after a long night.

    Haha! Well, that explains the cavity! Rootbeer floats....Delicious, but singlehandedly keeping dentists wealthy since the 50's.
    Seriously man...Nice guitar, but an amazing if not intriguing deal!

    Is that the standard of the newer, cheaper line of the EVH Wolfgang? That seems like a great deal regardless of which it is. The more I see pictures of these guitars the more I like them. Good for you....

    Good for you....I bet it sounds and feels sweet. Is that a Mesa Boogie head on your Marshall Cabinet in the photo?
