Peavey guitar dating
WD offers many more Peavey pickguards than shown here.
Due to a variety of manufacturing changes over the years many guards require tracings so we can both know that you are getting the pickguard that will fit your guitar.
It was run by four highly talented craftsman, each with a different area of specialty.
The Custom Shop launched with a contest held via Van Halen's official website.
Wolfgang owners were simply seeking a way to distinguish between arch top and flat top model Wolfgangs and maple cap and solid basswood model Wolfgangs. It featured an arched (carved) top, body binding, two knobs (volume and tone), three-way pickup toggle switch, two Peavey/EVH-designed humbucker pickups, oil-finished bird's eye maple neck and fingerboard with dual graphite reinforcement rods, ten-degree tilt headstock, and Schaller mini M6 tuners (with either pearloid or ivory colored buttons).
Solid basswood Wolfgangs were offered in gloss ivory and gloss black; solid basswood/maple cap Wolfgangs were offered in various transparent figured maple finishes (sunburst, amber, red, purple, blue, green, cherryburst, and black cherryburst) as well as vintage gold and seafoam green.
Very occasionally a rejected maple top was painted either gloss black or gloss ivory.
We have a HUGE library of templates dating back over thirty years, so if you dont see your model that doesnt mean we cant make it.
