    Default Ed's 2015 tour Creme EVH Wolfgang

    Hey guys,

    few questions...... Ed's creme Wolf he played on the 15 tour was obvioulsly a hand crafted relic job and not one that he did himself due to road use I would imagine. Was this guitar originally creme or black? Did the guitar wear to black or creme? Just curious if its possible to take a PV Creme wolf and do this to or if its something special that EVH model had to make it wear like that. I have an old Creme PV wolfgang standard that I'd like to install a red killswitch on, throw on an EVH ivory board neck and relic up to look like that. But curious if the guitar was black or white first.

    any ideas?

    Rob

    I'm almost positive it was black from the start. The cream overcoat would've been applied, and then somehow rushed to cure (my opinion - baked?) to achieve the cracked look. Just speculating on how the crackling was achieved, but again, I'm almost positive it was a black Wolf painted over in cream.

    If you're wanting to be 100% accurate on this guitar, you're problem will be the black binding on the cream Wolf.

    Of course, if you're not worried about getting it 100% accurate and the binding color difference isn't that big of a deal, you could always paint yours black, clearcoat it, let it cure sufficiently, and THEN paint it cream and crack coat it.

    Just my thoughts, anyway.

    It really is a great looking guitar. I remember when we first started seeing photos of it, that a few posters were almost besides themselves! Myself included...
    Agree with the notion that it was/is a black body, painted over in cream, and then baked for the aged/worn/cracked/reliced look.

    Do I smell another replica in your near future, Rob? LOL.
    It would be a great one to tackle IMO. I did see one on a Youtube video since the 2015 tour started... I'll see if I can track it down, and possibly ask the poster how he achieved the look.

    I'm sure it'll still be a beauty!
    Forgot about the ebony neck and the Les Paul type of block inlays, for a minute... We were so focused on the awesome looking body! LOL.

    I would prefer rosewood to ebony--my USA Gray Stealth Wolf has never felt right due to the ebony

    I think a lot of us were surprised when Eddie switched to ebony. He's done rosewood before, but ebony? That came out of left field. At least to me!

    For what it's worth, I haven't played one of those guitars. Yet

    ...well, in that case, black paint, clear coat, let settle, then cream paint and bake (or whatever makes it crinkle), and you're set!

    And I don't know enough without researching, but I would assume a poly clear coat after the black would keep the black from crinkling up when you bake the cream over coat.

    Thought we decided it was a Stealth black body painted white and relic'd? I'd like to see them sell us a version. I didn't care at first, but I'm starting to like the block inlays better than the dots on my USA Stealth. I might consider upgrading if they sold a white relic'd like Ed's.

    If I may, and with all due respect?
    5150rob hasn't been logged on too much lately, for various reasons. He may not have read some of the prior posts about this particular guitar...

    I do agree (with my limited knowledge) that the process you described ^^^ is what we're seeing on Ed's main 2015 axe.

    From a business perspective Ebony is cheaper than rosewood and not an endangered species as the obummer dept sees it

    Did anyone notice any changes to the paint? Did the forearm rub off more paint as the tour went on? With out looking back, I recall it seemed like it didn't really change much.

    Hmmm. Didn't know that!
    For some reason, I would've thought that ebony was more expensive than rosewood?
