Bottom line... I want it now. This is a sweet guitar!

My next project is going to be a Wolf '74 style with the Strat setup.

Was yours built by troy. If so are you happy with it?
Was wondering because almost pulled the trigger on one of his guitars. I am still thinking of getting one in the near future.
I'm very happy - Haven't quite dialed in exactly what I'm looking for yet but I can definitely hear that it's there for me to grab - haven't tinkered near enough yet as I've only hooked up with my 'for real' set up 2 times so far (amazingly enough!) - I use a small crate combo for rehearsals and it really doesn't do the justice that my twin with the jbl's does. Here's the one gig I've used it so far

and here's Lovelight from same - I like my sound especially here - I messed around throughout the gig though not exactly sure what I had set here. Scarlet would be an example where I'm a bit thin and shrilly, though not brutally so. ... d02t03.mp3

for the price I'm not sure what else is out there and troy is a hell of a nice guy - chuckles picked up one recently and seems to be in love :P

at times it seems a bit shrill or too brite - I'm told by waldo that if I swap out the CB-1 for his buffer (which I already have) it should help with that. Though I'm not convinced that I can't also do better just with settings/eq. Still got some work to do.

Yep... totally in love! :smile:

pics of mine are here: ... 1624903304

I saw this one (the new Wolf) under construction at his shop a couple of weeks ago... very nice piece of work. Troy mentioned he'd like to take a shot at building one out of birdseye maple... :thewave: but he's totally cool and will work with you on any specifics you might want.
