    Default EVH Wolfgang Special or Peavey Wolfgang Standard?

    Hey,

    if I had the chance to buy a black Peavey Wolfgang Standard or a black EVH Wolfgang Special for literally the same price, what guitar would you buy and why?

    The EVH is made in Japan, the Peavey is made in the US, would that be the decisive factor?

    I really don't know.

    Is the PV a Pat. Pending model? I have a black Pat. Pend. Best of the three I owned.

    Before buying a USA Stealth, I would say buy the PV without hesitation. People I know and trust mislead me. Now, it's tough. I'd lean towards the EVH Special. I prefer the EVH neck and Pickups. But the PV with the arch top is nice. Look at it in the light. There're seams across the top. Two, one on the outside of each pickup and it's a solid basswood body. One seam down the middle and it's got a maple top. Quality will probably be better on the PV.

    I say buy the PV. Then down the road buy an EVH Special. They'll be building them for years to come. Obvisiouly PVs will be harder to find in good shape, as time goes by.

    Absolutely!

    I have a pat pend / CE sticker PV that is around 16 years old and still plays like a dream...

    Seems like a better deal!

    I think the answer to this is pretty obvious...

    Peavey all the way... Hell, even if it were a Peavey Special I would still say the Peavey...

    I have (2) PV Wolfgangs, 1st year models, and I love them. The necks are the best. Especially when you pickup one used, the neck has that already broken in feeling.

    Good luck on your new addition... make sure you post pictures of whatever you decide.

    Peace

    Well thats the sad part, I probably won't be able to buy neither one of them
    I need to spend money on an amp first and I can't get my guitar sold

    I do own a Peavey Special Deluxe tho, which is great. But I thought the Wolfie might have evolved since its with Fender.

    Yeah, I'd say go with the patent-pending Peavey without a doubt. I have an early transparent quilt model and it's still my favorite guitar I own. (Holy crap, GOLATTARI, I can't believe it's been 15-16 years since i got my Wolfie! I know I put the deposit down on it a year+ before it actually delivered to the shop.)

    I have owned numerous PV Wolfs (standards and specials) in all kinds of colors over the years. Sold all of them and regret all of them. But I still have one that I absolutely love. First year, Pat/pend Black Standard Wolf. I am looking to trade it for an Ivory but only because I like the color better. Both are Basswood bodys and out of all the ones I have owned and played that standard I have sounds amazing and that first year neck seems to feel better than most of my guitars.

    go with the PV when time time is right

    Ah cool, thanks for your opinions. Well I have to see what guitars are available when I have the money and go from there.
