    So what's the verdict on the new Wolfie axe? BTW just picked up a d-tuna but haven't installed yet. Does it work and stay tuned as advertised?
    I've read mostly good reviews and a couple saying it has to be re-tuned after a few drop d's and back.

    I haven't played the white WG much. It's sitting in a case in the corner.

    I've picked up a few cheapies (under $500 each) in the last month and haven't plugged them in yet. Been outside a lot.

    I've used the D-Tuna a little, but probably not enough to mess anything up.

    Installed d-tuna worked great for a while, but now getting a buzzing sound when I go to standard E. I think its the Floyd's fine tuner spring buzzing against the bottom of the d-tuna. Gonna try to fiddle with it. If I can't fix it
    the damn thing is coming off. Anybody ever had this issue with floyds?

    I might add a kill switch, it would be red also.

    Both my Wolfgangs are about the same weight. Close to what my Hamer Steve Stevens weighs, and the Ravelle is a little lighter. The Fireman is heavier than all of those, but it's bigger and the body is mahogany.
    Do you know whether these "EVH Branded Floyds" are original Floyds or a cheaper version? I've seen some discussion regarding cranking down the bridge posts to adjust action that could damage the blades if string tension is not released, but on original
    Floyds the steel is much harder and can take more abuse. Thoughts.

    I have several guitars with original Floyd Rose trems on them and a few with Licensed FR trems. The original Floyd Rose trems and still made in Germany and they do have very good metal in them. I always took the string and spring tension off before adjusting the height screws just to be safe on all my trems. I had one of the Korean made Peavey Wolfgang specials. The trem on it was like a Floyd Rose II which has a cast body with knife edge inserts. It was actually a pretty good guitar but I gave it away because I never played it much. I like Strat styled guitars better.

    Neither one of my D-Tunas buzz.

    I don't know if the EVH Floyds are different. I've never researched whether the Standards and Specials have different Floyds than the USA models. You'd think they would.

    The problem with the buzzing was from the Floyd not sitting properly on the body. It was raised up a hair on the low E side causing the buzzing. Cranked down the Floyd post a bit and seemed to take
    care of it. I'm still not sure on the Floyds. I don't think the "EVH Branded" Floyds are German made. But I can't imagine Eddie would use anything substandard on his own USA version.

    Local GC has a newer Standard and a Peavey Special in their used inventory. I don't really care for the burst though.

    Yeah, not much of a burst on that one. Decent price on the black standard.
