First Guitar I've purchased since the 80s Gibson SG Exclusive I played in HS. Sam Ash has a huge selection of guitars. I drove a couple hours to get there. I was 75% sure what I wanted but didn't want one I hadn't checked out. Staff was very helpful in showing me this and a dozen other similar. The Setup (action, strings, floyd) wasn't perfect but I was in a hurry. Completed all that myself. Highly recommend Sam Ash in New Haven. Compared to the SG, love the feel of the Wolf Special although neck isn't as thin / comfy as SG. Tuning is solid which isn't the case with flimsy SG, even through dives. Pickups are MAJOR hot, I roll them back most of the time. I'm not liking the easy rotation of the volume pot. on the EVH. It's too easy for me to move accidentally, personal preference / right hand style. Bridge pickup doesn't seem low enough and nothing left to adjust. Might have a pro look at it.
