Very occasionally a rejected maple top was painted either gloss black or gloss ivory.Peavey and Edward Van Halen's attempt to make a "budget" version of the Wolfgang that didn't compromise quality in parts or craftsmanship. It featured a flat top, one knob (volume), three-way pickup toggle switch, two Peavey/EVH-designed humbucker pickups, licensed Floyd Rose tremolo with D-Tuna (d-tuner device), oil-finished hard rock maple neck and fingerboard with dual graphite reinforcement rods, straight headstock, and chrome tuners.To achieve the legendary "Brown Sound", Edward Van Halen employed a variac to limit the voltage of his Marshall guitar amplifier while still allowing the volume to be at its maximum.He also used a custom-assembled strat-like guitar with a PAF humbucker (taken from a Gibson ES-335) mounted directly to the guitar's body. the "Frankenstrat") guitar laid the groundwork for most of the custom guitars he played throughout the 1970s and 1980s.The Peavey EVH Wolfgang Custom Shop operated from January 2002 to December 2004.It was run by four highly talented craftsman, each with a different area of specialty.Some guitars where the only upgrade is a rosewood fretboard is technically called a Custom Shop, but most really are not.
The body was made of basswood and often had (like its predecessor) a maple cap.
Two base versions were offered: a solid basswood model and a solid basswood/maple cap model.
(The maple cap was 1/4".) Each version could come with either a licensed Floyd Rose tremolo with D-Tuna (d-tuner device) or a tune-o-matic bridge and hard tail piece.
I've experimented by tearing apart and reassembling hundreds of guitars in different ways searching for these qualities.
Although I've ruined a lot of great guitars by having done this, I have learned what it takes to make a truly great guitar.
