    Default NGD - EVH Stealth

    I finally bought myself a Stealth yesterday from the Ebay. I've wanted one of these since I first saw them. Its only a special, but I got it at a great price. For whatever reason, the previous owner changed the pups and put in SD Gus G Blackout pups in it. I'll replace them with EVH pups and either sell the Gus G's or chuck them in another guitar. I'll see how they sound first. I got to admit though, it does look cool with all black pickups...

    Here she is... Photos are from the listing. Should be here by Wednesday....

    Happy NGD! It does look cool with the all black pups. You could buy the all black Wolfgang pickups and throw those in there...

    Thanks guys. I'm really looking forward to jamming on it...

    I'm almost certain that I'll put all black EVH pups in it, but I might do the Franky/Wolfie pup configuration... See how that sounds...

    Nice axe. I was never a fan of the Stealth when it first came out but it is growing on me more and more. Enjoy it.

    Very nice! I'm admittedly not a fan of the Gus G pickups myself. Every demo I've seen of them has left me underwhelmed, even the one by Keith Merrow who's metal tones I love.

    I played a Stealth Special for the first time last month and I was impressed with it.

    I just wish they would do the simple stripped-down Special like what Peavey used to do. I have a Peavey Special in sunburst and it's amazing. It's simple, stripped down, doesn't have the maple top, and it was inexpensive as hell for a US-made guitar.

    just curious, why did you buy one with the pickups changed out when there are like 40 of them on ebay?

    This is the first secondhand Stealth I've seen on Aussie Ebay. It was really cheap (well, cheapish for here) and I think the fact that it doesn't have original pups in it keep the price down. Doesn't bother me to replace the pups. As I said, I'll either sell them or use them on another guitar. I got it for a bit over $850 delivered. They retail for around $2000 here (give or take). It looks to be in great condition. I'm happy.

    I did use my EVH VH1 money for this, so that guitar will have to wait a couple more weeks. That will be coming from the US.
