Never thought I would do something so absurd! It is the hardtail version and MIC. I nee to reduce the size of some pics to prove myself of course...

I have to say that I have never played a neck that was as effortless and inviting as this one (Birdseye maple too) there is a slight matte finish on the fingerboard and the frets are ss.

I think it is 10 - 14 radius c shape, not thick or thin and the guitar is probably 7.5 lbs...

The locking nut and fine-tuner stop bar are weird for a guitar like that, but a lot of the stuff coming from China is so good these days.

Stainless frets are amazing. Nice snag!

Very cool!

Hope you got a good deal. That model looks hard to find here, and even the import models are in the $1700 range.

I was thinking the same thing. But that's a great looking guitar! And if it plays great also....

It stays in tune after pretty much anything. Got it 3 days ago and it is still very much there. It has 9's on it and I am a 10's guy but I think I will just leave it with 9's.

Those little fine tuners work well.

The Wolfgang has a Les Paul scale length, right?

In the 80s and into the 90s, Gibson issued several models with a fine-tuning stop bar like that.

I think the current Lucille model still comes with one on it.

It's called a TP6.

"The Wolfgang has a Les Paul scale length, right?"

A quick Google search will give the information.

Wolfgang Special: Scale Length: 25.5" (648 mm)

More from Wikipedia: With regard to tone, a longer scale (e.g. Fender Telecasters with 25.5 inch (648 mm) scale length) favors "brightness" or cleaner overtones and more separated harmonics versus a shorter scale (e.g., Gibson Les Paul with 24.75 in (628 mm) scale length), which favors "warmth" or more muddy overtones.

As some people have tried to assert in the past, the MM/Peavey/EVH Wolfgangs do not have a shorter scale length.
The overall guitar is shorter, but not the scale length.

5, its 25.5.

Peegoo, seen a few like this on guitar of the day "Norms" I think there are a few G models and maybe a hollow body with FT's.

That is a fine looking guitar, frogman. I’m continually surprised these days with the value of some of the guitars being built in China.
