    Default 2003 Peavey Wolfgang Special EXP Korean Made

    Alright so I have an opportunity to purchase a Peavey Wolfgang. Pictured below is the guitar. He has upgrade the nut screws to titanium screws, the saddles to titanium, the tone block to a brass block and the springs to noiseless springs. The guitar looks like itís near mint condition. Heís offering it at $1,640. Are the Korean made Peaveyís good? Is this a good price for the guitar plus all the mods?

    From what I've seen online, I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Not even USA made Peavey Wolfgang's are selling for that much. The Titanium saddles go for ~$800 from fu-tone, which I think is absolutely, positively insane. The brass block is about $50. Noiseless springs aren't that expensive. The titanium screws (really silly) are about $20. The resale value on the guitar does not seem to be very high at all. Basically they put almost $1000 worth of upgrades into a guitar that is worth a fraction of that. Save your money.

    Interesting, I appreciate the feedback! What exactly about them makes them bad or undesirable?

    Iím also thinking about getting a brand new EVH Wolfgang Special and upgrading it myself. Would be brand new and cost the same after upgrades.

    I'm not saying it's bad or undesirable. I think they're just asking far too much from what I was able to see online. From a few years back the older Korean ones seemed to be selling for around $300.

    I guess that if you really want to spend $800 on titanium saddles, go right ahead. Personally, I'd rather just get a really nice second guitar for that money.

    Have you had an opportunity to play it? Is that price firm or is he willing to negotiate?

    Unfortunately every time Peavey comes up, I'm reminded of my MIA Peavey Fury p-bass that I foolishly sold when I got out of grad school... sigh.
