    Default Its back finally! And a NGD too

    So my Stealth built by Chip Ellis arrived today along with a new PRS I bought! Was a very exciting day. It was great picking up 2 guitars and driving around all day not being able to open them. I had them held at fedex and picked them up on my route during work lol.
    This is how ALL the USA Wolfgangs should be built. It is absolutely flawless. Not even a shim under the floyd nut like the last 3 I had. Finish seems different than the last 2 stealths I had, it seems oddly smoother. Its also been setup to Eddies exact setup, Ive never had the strings this low on a Wolf and not had any buzz, its remarkable. Im really happy with what they did for me and its been a very exciting day.

    Sweet finish on the PRS . That's a great looking guitar as well !

    Congrats on the Chip built Stealth . Awesome to hear that the axe plays like butter . Sounds like you're new toy is set up like a dream ...

    Those are too nice to describe... Congrats on the Stealth.

    And now I'd like to see a Wolf with that PRS's blue finish
    I'm just here.

    How exactly did you get Chip to build it? Also can you give more details on the setup?

    Its a secret... j/k. It was the call of the EVH coordinator. I sent an email about some problems I had with my newly bought US Stealth about 3 months ago. Its my 4th Wolfgang and they've ALL had quality control issues. Had it all documented so I really had set out to share my concerns with EVH brand and hopefully just have a new one sent to me. Apparently my email struck a chord with them lol(it was like 2 pages long) Next thing you know they have the EVH coordinator involved and them I have them telling me they are having Chip build me a new one instead of just sending me another one off the line. I have ALL the correspondence emails printed out and in the case. Its definitely a keeper because you just can't buy one built by him.
    The setup is ridiculously low and its plays great. I can actually say Im finally content with both of these guitars and Im done shopping for now.

    Dude, could you please post up pics of the string elevation on the Chip Ellis Wolf?
    If you have a string elevation gauge, it would be awesome if you could tell us what it is at the 12th fret bar. Its supposed to be 1.5mm bottom of low E to fretboard at 12th fret bar. If yours is lower I'd like to know.

    I'd like to see those photos (if possible) and get the specs for string clearance too .

    Can't see how it could be much lower , with buzzing on the low strings and fretting out on the top ones when doing wide bends ...
    Still tweaking my guitars for better action as well .

    I just measured and its currently at 1mm at the 12th fret,its low. Its almost too low for me and feels weird switching from the PRS which is at 1/16 at the 12th fret which is what I am used too.
    more pics
