Thanks! Thought I would share a favorite reaction to my new toy. I think so far my brother has said it best: "Dude, that rig looks like it was reverse-engineered from alien technology. Sweet." I'm inclined to agree. :shock:

no way to put into words just how awesome Moriarty's work is until you have held and played one. congrats, and i see you chose a Hybrid Wolf with peacock and wolf inlay, and raised tailpiece WITH pearl underneath. very unique version there!

peace,
waldo

It seems stock standard 78/79 wolf from what I can see. the only differencea I can spot are the peacock (Matt doesn't do the eagle anymore anyway) and the upper horn strap button being in the 73-75 position. (and the 80s pickup cover colours if we want to nit-pick).

i like the peacock far better than the eagle - beautiful guitar - and great to finally get a photo that shows some detail of the peacock for those who haven't seen it in the flesh

congrats OP - my Moriarty fund is moving along slowly - at least it's moving!

I was just looking at my pictures again and realizing that they really don't even do justice to how gorgeous the guitar is. There are so many perfect, small touches -- even the peacock really shines so much more to the naked eye than on camera. When I walked into the expo on Saturday and saw the real things sitting out on display I was practically speechless. I think about all I could say to Matt was "dude, that's...well, dude, whoa." :-)

Anyway, mine is pretty close to the hybrid replica in the pix available on Matt's website, with the strap button in the old position as noted.

I'd also like to give a shout out to those who've helped my rig come together. I tried to spread the love a little in putting together the pieces:

- Waldo's buffer in the Wolf
- Andrew Olson for his Wheel junction box and OBEL cables
- Brad Sarno for SMS Classic w/ JG mods
- Tracy at SSP for 1x12 cab

I gotta think I'm in good shape for a while on the gear front!

If the link works, this is my Moriarty Wolf, brief clip. I like it in hi-def with the picture blown up!

nice little video, did the guitar come with that black t-shirt?
Was wondering how much does that baby weigh?

:lol: black t-shirt has definitely crept into my non-work wardrobe as a hallmark of efficiency in apparel!

Guitar is no lightweight: My not perfectly reliable scale indicates 11 pounds.
