    Default Wolfgang Stealth Special

    So, I was screwin' around yesterday lookin' at different ideas for maybe getting a new guitar and stumbled on this:

    http://www.guitarcenter.com/EVH-Wolf...37-i1975663.gc

    I know that reviews have been mixed in regards to the specials but I may have to try one of these out and come to my own conclusion... I would've never considered a non USA built guitar in the past but those Stealths look pretty yummy...

    I've played a WS and to me they're pretty stout. I almost bought one but my fiance wanted a coach purse. Bitch.

    If I get serious, I will take my first year quilt Peavey with me to A/B them side by side. It will be interesting how they would play different and more importantly, tonally...

    the american version of the stealth would be my choice. That thing looks bad ass... but not worth that price for me considering I dont really like the way they play.

    I still think those are just gorgeous guitars.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    just sold my stealth special...
    nice feel to it but the pups to me are weak
    i had this feel like plastic, but i traded it for a brand new John Petrucci musicman for 1000. (apparently someone took it to get set up and never came back for it so they put it up for a grand, the damn thing sells for 2600)
    but to each their own

    I have the USA Stealth. Nice guitar, not sure if it's my thing or not though. Frets are really small, and it's almost too nice to gig with. I'm on the fence about selling or trading it.

    I don't know, those satin black guitars do nothing for me. To me I think it's kinda ugly.

    I know this thread is about the stealth, however has anyone played or has an opinion on the Wolfgang USA Custom? I'm sort of drawn to it cause of the "vintage" look.

    It looks like those are just starting to arrive at stores. I am curious about those also.

    You got a steal on the JP Musicman, I would love to run into one for that price.
