I got a mail from a guy wanting to do a trade, but damn if I waste my time on a Korea-model. Actually, the original concept behind the Wolfgang was for it to be a quilt-top guitar.
Next step will be a set of Seymour Duncan pearly gates. The Peavey rep brought me this Wolfgang from the NAMM show in Nashville because I had been waiting so long and apologized.
Does anyone know if there are differences between the serials on the Korea and USA-produced Wofgangs?
Are there any other differences I should be aware of? The quilt top on these offshore models is about 1/16" thick, that's it!
These serial numbers are simi sequential, starting with AS0435, so AS0458 is an early serial number.
According to the Fender Musical instruments database, this serial number indicates that this is more likely the 20th of these guitars made.
I know some of youse guys can identify a male or female mosquito from a 100 yards, so.... If it is a Standard (carved top) then it is a USA model. There were a few regular production Quilt-top Wolfgangs to make it out of the shop, but it was very cost prohibitive.
