Unbelievable! I have much more expensive Wolfgangs And the bumble bee Evh stripped series, and this guitar is a major improvement over the other overseas Wolfgangs and the previous peavey. Those guys over at Fender have really tapped into all of the qualities that make a great guitar and what we already love about The Wolfgang and put it into this guitar. If you like the original music man Axis but didn't like the weird neck shape and flat top, non contoured forearm rest, then this is the winner all the way. My favorite thing(s) about this guitar... The EVH Wolfgang Pickups! Holy cow balls I can sit on that neck pick up and play all day and all night.
Hope this helped make your disision guys. Happy shredding.

I want to follow up my previous review. I played the guitar a lot more the day after I wrote my original review when I was more awake and noticed yet again, a lot of buzzing in several spots up and down the neck. The guitar was looked at by a luthier and I was told it would need a full fret level. He told me to return it. The buzz could not be dialed out by string height or relief. At 5/64 off the 12th fret on the low E and 4/64 off the 12th fret on the high E with .010mm relief at the 8th fret parts of the guitar sounds like a sitar due excessively high frets. The neck is not twisted either. This is 4 in a row that had some sort of an issue, mostly with bad fretwork and/or dings and dents.

Also out of the 3 guitars I ordered I asked for no special handling so the boxes should have been sealed from the factory. Every guitar I got was opened and resealed. The original brown tape was cut and was re-tapped with clear tape on top of it. I'm not blaming MF but all of this didn't sit well with me. I talked to another dealer who told me that they have had issues with the EVH Wolfgang Standards and they sent four of them back to Fender and didn't even put them on sale on their website because of QC issues out of the box. So I'm hoping returned guitars aren't being sent back to Fender and then shuffled around and sent to other dealers as "new" stock...either way,something isn't right.

MF was great, I wound up ordering a Strat instead. I wanted to like the EVH Wolfgang and I gave it a shot and I thought I had the last one playing alright until I really sat with it and discovered it really wasn't alright.

I know people have bought them and had no issues and love them, consider yourself lucky. I'm done with them.

I added a star because the neck does feel great and the pickups sound great...they made the excessive buzzing sound very warm.

    I have 3 of these and haven't had any problems with them at all. If you have problems your probably just expecting a $5000, in which case you should just buy the expensive one.

        Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

        This guitar right out of the box was perfectly set up, intonation spot on, probably the first guitar I've ever bought that came that way. String height perfect, I've heard of the buzzing issues,none here. I got the purple burst and it's amazing looking. The neck is great, very smooth. I like the sound of the pickups, no complaints there. I bought an EVH Special a while back and have a Peavey Wolfgang and I find myself playing this one more, really like the belly cut and forearm cut. Definitely recommend. Even if a new one needs a setup, you won't go wrong here.

          Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

          I must admit, I was a little bit worried when I found out that this guitar was built in Indonesia. I didn't know what to expect. Well my worries were all for naught, this guitar rocks! Fit and finish are outstanding for a guitar in this price range, and I've played guitars that cost twice as much that weren't half as much fun to play. Forget your worries, buy this thing already!

          Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

          Was just adding to my collection with this guitar. Would give it 4 1/2 stars. When I first ordered it I thought it was made in Mexico, but sort of got bummed out when I found out it was made in Indonesia. (Note: The Wolfgang "Special" is crafted in Mexico, the "Standard" in Indo, Fender controls the quality of both from what I understand.)

          Surprisingly, this is a good and well crafted/manufactured instrument. Wood is pretty high quality grain. Great paintwork on the transparent blue finish. Guitar has a lot of sharp resonance and bite with the maple fretboard.

          It also has its own unique "feel". I'm not sure how the guitar would feel to a guitar player with small hands, but I have average hands and the guitar still feels like a toy. Or perhaps more appropriately compared to one of those little foreign sports cars. It's light compact and its weight is pretty well balanced. If you don't care for jumbo fretboards this guitar could be good for you.

          The only problem with the guitar is fairly minor fretbuzz in all positions on the high E string and on the second fret of the low E. I could probably have it fixed by getting a pro to re-set up the action, but the buzzing kind of gives the guitar a little character.

          Was also very pleased by the packing and shipping job from MF. Guitar arrived in less than a week. Protected by several layers of cardboard. Paperwork, allen wrench kit, whammy bar were all nicely bundled up.

          I'm certainly interested in the Special now. Also looked into the EVH USA stuff, but confused that they don't offer maple fretboards since that was a VH trademark.

          Had a peavey wolfgang import for a few years it was just ok. this is still an import but man does it play great. love the neck and frets on this wolfgang the best. overall best guitar for the price. the arm contour is exactly what i wanted on other wolfgangs glad they added that to this one. i got the trans blue but has a purple tint to it, looks good though.

            Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

            I really have enjoyed playing my EVH Wolfgang. It's easy to play and has a great sound. The pick ups are hot and allow me to make the sounds I want while soloing. The only thing I would change is the Tremolo system. I'd rather have the Floyd Rose system that's on my Kramer. Other than that, it's a great guitar!

              Hard for me to say because I'm a huge Eddie fan so I have quite a few EVH guitars. Have four EVH's at work right now and try to interchange to give them equal playing time. I know that doesn't help anybody interested in buy one. It's a beautiful guitar and has a great feel.

                  Comments about EVH Wolfgang Standard Electric Guitar:

                  In my opinion, this instrument falls into a small class of guitars which are not American made, yet provide comparable quality to some American products. I've observed no mechanical shortcomings, nor blemishes on the finish of my instrument. What is most important is that, among my other 8 guitars, this one immediately sliced a unique niche for itself. Also, it's refreshing that my setup required little more than stringing with my preferred strings. Frets were nice, neck well adjusted, intonation correct, and so on. It's just a treat to get an instrument and not a project. Well done!
