    Default Deal on a Peavey Wolfgang Deluxe

    Hello there!

    I've been looking at the NY Craigslist for a while and now that I'm here, I have to opportunity to get a deal on this by local pickup:

    http://longisland.craigslist.org/msg/2861426492.html

    You guys think it's a good deal?

    I still got to ask the seller for the serial No and what year it was made, but as you can see, it has a very beautiful top and looks new...

    Nice flametop!!!

    $1500 may be a little steep but for how nice the pics look, it may be worth it... I don't see many that look that nice, that's for sure!!!

    I don't think there was ever such a thing as a "deluxe". I don't think there was really a Wolfgang Standard either. It was either the Wolfgang, the Wolfgang Special, the Wolfgang Flametop Special, or the Wolfgang Custom Shop. There was also the EXP Quilttop Special.

    I know this is old news to most guys here, but it always bugs me when someone advertises a Wolfgang as a Deluxe. It leaves the buyer with the impression that he's getting something that was originally sold as a step up from a normal Wolfgang.

    I have a perfect copy of the peavey catalog that features Eddie's guitars, and amps, and the custom shop.

    It may be worth something someday, I've had it since 05'.

    I'll look at it to see if there was a deluxe.

    Looks like a regular USA standard to me.

    Ask what year it is or better yet get the serial #.
    That's a nice top for sure.

    $1,500 is quite a bit but depending on the condition and the year - if it's worth it to you then there u go.

    You can get Wolfgangs on eBay quite often for less than $1200. Just got a flame top patent pending for $1125.

    1500? That's high....unless its dead MINT.

    mint ones will rarely brake 1200 on ebay. I've never paid that much for any of mine. A year ago 850 was the average.

    "Deluxe" and standard? Us built with a maple top is what you want. I think "standard" was for the black & white that was only basswood...the failed maple tops that were painted solid were "deluxe"...as well as the flame (&early quilts).

    Definitely HIGH ......... I recently picked up a pretty mint one for $950. Personally, I think $1200 is the most I would pay .............

    Yeah you guys are right.

    The price is quite high and the guy seems a lil' suspect, wants only cash, local pickup (2h+ travel for me) and didn't give me the serial number still. No deal!

    And I agree with the guy above that said there's no difference between "deluxe" and "standart". For me, wolfys were always like this: there is the standart, the special and the shitty korean thing, hehe

    Looking forward for this one now:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1997-PEAVEY-...ht_9056wt_1163

    A 1997, pat-pend CE sticker one...
    The only bad point is the advanced fret wear, but this is no big deal!

    Unless you "have to" have this one, I would wait to see if it goes down in price. $1300 is still a little steep even for a patent pending wolf. I would take a chance to see if it gets relisted at a lower price. $900-$1000 would be a good price range for this.

    I bought the same guitar (Black, Patent pending) on ebay several yrs ago for $650 to give you a point of reference.

    Yup... Stay away from suspect transactions on Craig's List.

    Things to ask about when purchasing a Wolfgang: original hard shell case; original manual; paperwork (build/inspection sheet); hex wrenches and tools; fret protector; all original hardware and electronics. All add value to the guitar.

    In the crazy great-economy days Wolfgangs sold for LOTS. But for the past couple of years prices have been much lower--great for buyers. An arch top, flame top model can be had for around $1,200 (give or take). Solid color arch top models can go for under $1,000. Be patient, check eBay and Craig's List regularly, and the right deal will come along.

    The term "Standard" was never official at Peavey (just as it isn't now with Fender/EVH). "Deluxe" was used to describe custom shop models. According to Peavey official descriptions, there were only four basic models of the Wolfgang: Wolfgang (arch top models); Wolfgang Special; Wolfgang Special EXP (Korean-made), and custom shop "Deluxe" models. They made no distinction between figured top and solid basswood Wolfgangs. I wish they did--because it's kind of confusing otherwise--and that's why owners have unofficially adopted the terms "Standard" (to describe solid basswood arch top models), "Standard Deluxe" (to describe figured top arch top models), and "Special Deluxe" (to describe figured top flat top models).

    Is that a quilt top or a flame? If the serial number is under 3000 the price is fair.
