    Default 2 NOS, Unsold Peavey Wolfgangs!

    In my travels for work, I found something that may interest some of you linkers. In a shop called Guitar World in Normal Illinois, there are two NOS Original Unsold Peavey Wolfgang Standard Stop Tail guitars, one is Purple and one is Tobacco Burst. He said he thinks the Purple is a '95 and the Tobacco Burst is a 96. He said he has the original case candy and paperwork for each guitar, but only has one case.

    Now, onto the history. I don't know if he is still an active Peavey dealer or not, but I can vouch personally that he was the Peavey dealer in Normal, and did have these guitars hanging on his wall when they were new. His store was in a different location, and he has since moved to a new store location. I remember seeing these specific guitars and lusting after the Tobacco Burst.

    Now onto the best news. This guy is older, and kind of a cork-sniffing traditionalist. He is not really considering the collectors value of what he has, he only sees it as unsold inventory on his wall that he's had for a decade. He also thinks the stop tail option is going to hurt the ability to sell. As a result, he has them marked at $1000.00 each. That's right. 2 NOS, UNSOLD Peavey Wolfgangs for $1000.00 each!. Granted, one is missing the case, but they should actually still have the full factory warranty since they were never sold.


    Anyway, here's the pics. The Tobacco Burst is particularly beautiful. Also, here's the store info:

    They definitely are not from 1995 or 1996... It wasn't until late '96 that the Floyd equipped Wolf's were starting to be produced...

    Either way, heck of a good buy on either guitar...

    Yeah, I thought his timeline was off. I would have guessed '97/'98

    It's more than likely '98 or later. '97 was the 1st year quilts.

    Thanks man. I used to know this stuff by heart. I guess I've been out of the Peavey scene for so long that I've killed enough brain cells to not recall my dates.
