Recommended Posts

im thinking of getting one but are they really that much different? can anyone tell me ALLL of the differences? if they are just purely cosmetic then i will get the cheaper one

I think it is mainly the carved pretty top and birdseye neck/board. Just cosmetic stuff..I think..

 

So, they will probably sound a little different seeing as that the special is a solid basswood body.

well i really like the way the birdseye neck looks and i imagine it feels great too, i just dont know about spending the extra money just to have that. is there anywhere i can get a birdseye neck if i go with the special?

so the special has the exact same pickups and electronics or something close?

 

 

 

Id get the second one.

 

If you want one without the Floyd...I've got a sweet SUPER FLAME top cherry sunburst for sale for $1K.

The first one sure looks like a exp korean wich sold new for around $550

stay away from that one.Second one that nutbag in mi is asking way too much for that guitar but some dumb ass will buy it and thats why they keep going up and up.New that guitar sold for around $1900.Wait for the new fender wg's they should be out soon.

No birdseye on the specials and the standard with the maple cap sounds a little warmer but not that much.

whats a good fair price for either a special or a standard

 

Specials run from $650 to $1000 depending on the finish.They did make a amber flame special just like the one you want infact i had one and sold it to ren5150

he may still have it for sale.Purple flame should be the only one fetching a grand.

Wolfgang's come up all the time on Ebay.

 

A lot of people that are into the wolfies seem to think the new Peavey HP is a better guitar. It is an evolution of the WG.

This site has some of both for sale and lots of info: http://www.wolfgangguitars.com/
