    Default EVH Wolfgang Special Neck question..?

    Arent these supposed to have a plain hard rock maple neck?

    I got this one two days ago from Guitar Center used gear site...$600 shipped to my door.. It didnt had a scratch on it, looks 100% MINT! but when i was doing some inspection on it i saw that it had a flamed maple neck with birdseye fretboard..



    I got more than i expected and it feels and sounds so nice!!! But i havent seen a lot of necks like this on a special or even USA ones..
    Let me know what u guys think and more input will be much appreciated!

    Looks like you just got lucky! Sometimes a bit of flame may sneak its way into the regular maple supply.

    Post more pics of the guitar!

    Mine has the regular neck. That looks great. Also I paid $700 (few years ago) so you have my permission to be smug.

    When i saw it on the used gear site for $599 they had a small picture of the guitar, so i was a little bit worried... But i called them and made the order.. The UPS guy came at 11:00PM!! Late as shit! But when i opened the box it came with the original case with all the candies in it.. I think this was a display one.. How the serial numbers of these run?? It ends with a J so its the ones from japan i think.

    The Chinese ones have a Fender "F" on the back of the headstock with "Made In China" printed right below it. Your's is Japanese, somebody just took off the sticker that says so.
