Sold: EVH USA Wolfgang HT Hardtail in Black. Birdseye Maple oiled neck, Fender Custom Shop £900!!! - Guitars £ Discussions on theFretBoard (2024)

As you know, these are made by Fender, actually these exact ones are made in the Fender USA Custom Shop and are rarely rare in this finish with the oiled maple neck
It is a totally awesome guitar with a birdseye maple neck that really jumps out at you but more importantly feels amazing. It has my favourite oiled maple neck which again feels great under hand.
The frets make this an incredibly shred friendly speed machine once you get used to them, but away from that, this thing has such great tone and is capable of almost any style.
As you would expect, build quality is stunning, the tuning stability is second to none due to the double locking hard tail, great for live but also the studio when everything has to be spot on.
The maple archtop is comfortable and the stainless steel frets just finish the guitar off nicely. This is a technical tone machine but has that almost vintage build quality and feel to it, very different to anything else out there right now.

So why am I selling it..... Well, I am either looking to buy the new Ibanez FR6UC Prestige 2017 model which is due out shortly, hence raising funds, or maybe a trade with something that peaks my interest, but would be along the lines of Jackson USA, Mayones, Caparison, ESP etc.... Happy to add or receive cash in either direction depending on guitar.

Looking for £900cash collected from the South West area. Again, guitar is a mint example of this awesome USA built guitar.
