If you find yourself here and just looking around, I get it. I guess if I were in the market for a new axe, I could find myself in seedier locations. This guitar you see may not appeal to the first generation Van Halen fan. Yeah, I know- those magical years with Dave can't even be described with words, let alone matched.
This Wolfgang may appeal to those that were into "Van Hagar." You get this and that (Hagar) that is. I remember riding down the road back in '85 and "Why Can't This Be Love," came into my here and now, courtesy of my Clarion tape deck. "Unbelievable," I thought. What was unreal was this didn't even sound like Van Halen; this incarnation sounded completely different, but again, I digress.
Now back to this guitar. The Wolfgang pickups and Drop-D tuner are the story of these guitars. As for the the pickups? They are somewhat mid-rangy, but once you roll the volume back to 8, you're in total control and the trem on this machine is nothing but coolness. I know- your jammin' and all of a sudden, that lead singer catches the "way back machine" and wants to jam on Ratt? "Lack of Communication" will never be easier to drop down to "D" than with this handy little device.
As you know, these Wolfgangs are very much like a 'Paul. Yep- maple and mahogany are the components that bring the tone of this beast to life. As with a 'Paul, as with these. This guitar weighs in at 9 lbs, 2 oz. and friends, that's what gives you that deep, rich tone. Not the weight, but the maple and mahogany combo.
In closing folks, this guitar is in near-minty condition and of course, it has its build sheet. If'n you guys need more of an in-hand description, bring it because "everybody wants some and I want some too..."
