Rare Electric Guitars "Wolfganger" Build

posted Oct 18, 2013 14:30:06 by Rob
My plan was to buy one of the replicas of the evh and strip it and add the proper tuners, Floyd Rose, Dtuna, pups, etc. I couldn't find one seller who'd make one without that huge route around the Floyd Rose! I contacted REG back in August and gave them all the info and specs and pics I could find and via email correspondence I was assured this could be built to my specs.

I was emailed pictures of the guitar near the end of September and here is what I was shown. The routing was there as was some bubbling in the paint job. Since I don't have to pay for it upon my approval I told them I either get a discount to cover they repair by my luthier, fix it, or keep it. They sent me a picture of the US Wolfgang and tried to say the routing was the same!

Again, discount, fix it or keep it! They agreed to fix it! We'll see how they do!

Looks nice. I be interested to know how the Floyd Rose system works out.

Is the Pope Catholic? LOL! Yup I am! Visually they really pulled it together. It's paid for and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

The Floyd is going to be replaced by a real EVH FR W/Dtuna. The PUPS and some other electronics will go as well.

My MX250 was well built from REG. No complaints in build quality at all, and it's the closest replica of a MX250 you can find on the internet (since ESP no longer makes them thanks to the Big G).

I'm pretty stoked to get my hands on this but I one concern. The body looks completely flat and not arch top as stated in the specs I sent them. It's hard to tell from the pics they sent so I guess I will have to wait and see!

Does look flat, but photos can be deceiving. Really nice looking guitar though, so I really hope you like it.

In other photos I've seen and sent them, you can tell it's an arch top body and like I said, I sent them detailed specs. As of today it was dispatched from Changle Post. From there I think it hits Bejing then the U.S. in a few days after.

Due to budgetary constraints I will have to go with GFS VEH pups and a Schaller Floyd with D-Tuna. Still, I'm confident this will be a fun mod and guitar to play.

Well to me it looks flat but could just be the picture. I have two EVH one American with an arch top and one special that is flat. The top on your guitar here looks like the flat top on my special but just by looking at the the thickness of your body that is closer to what my American looks like. The wolf special is thinner. So you might have a cross between the two guitars. Lets hope it's and arch top like you asked for.

Either way - you should know in about 8 to 10 days. That's about how long it took when REG shipped mine.

Thats Really nice Rob. The colour of the neck with the Ivory paint is very nice

Rob said Jan 12, 2014 13:54:43
The neck looks to have a nice grain/wave in it from the pictures. I'm really hoping it's an archtop body like I stated in my emails but we shall see. I'm going to work with Cathy at Empreess after she catches up on her order to make me the one pictured below....

Well, the Chi-Gang made it to my local P.O. in seven days. Very impressive! Now I just have to get these and pick it up!
