    I bought this a few days ago and it came this morning. It's a Wolf KA50 (355) Mahogany body and neck Ebony fretboard Grover machines. Great set up didn't have to touch it just tune and play and man she sure is nice to play love the neck and the pup's sound good I'll have to play it a bit to get a real feel for what it's capable of but first day noodling has been great. Came with a SKB35 case.

    Wow! That’s sharp! Did you buy it new or used? I’ve heard good things about Wolf guitars, but I have never laid my hands on one.

    I'd like see what all the Wolf hub-bub is about but I'm waiting for a sale or a used purple Custom LP to show up...

    Just beautiful!
    KHL produces the prettiest looking tops on any import guitar, bar none. Heck, they can go toe to toe with a PRS 10 top or a Gibson Custom.

    How does the neck feel? My one mini-gripe with my Wolf, is that the back of the neck is a tad too flat.

    I wonder why the headstock shape on the semis is different from the one on their LPs:

    For me neck shape is one of those things that's a bit subjective both my Wolf's have round D shaped necks that feel and play really well. I've been playing a 84 LP Studio as my primary for over 20 yrs and IMO both Wolf's play as well if not a bit better. For sure both are faster. Hope that helps.

    Congrats! I have been looking at a Wolf lately, but have not pulled the trigger yet. Now I know a little more about the quality.

    my Wolf PRS copy has a very wide, flat D shape neck... wide compared to my "pattern" and "pattern vintage" necks on my real PRS

    I think it's a great, quality brand. My only issue is the 3-way switch is very cheap, and the shaft laying against the ring has made it corrode and turn green, but swapping electronics would be recommended on just about any import. Fretwork is very good, finish is great. I've thought about selling it several times, but everytime I play it, I realize its too good

    I agree I'm also not sure about the tailpiece it just seems a bit "flimsy" but not really only some more time spent will tell.

    I do like all my guitars but as far as tone, ease of playing, feel my 84 LP is by far still my favorite guitar. It's played tons of festivals, clubs and private venues and always preforms well. It's been carefully placed in a stand and thrown in the back of a truck or van at 3:00 in the morning loading out after a gig. I bought her back in the mid 90's from my friends music store for $600. She has some battle scars but I think she's gorgeous and I will never part with her.
    I just want to also say I'm really enjoying this forum I have been on all kinds of guitar forums just poking around but even though I've never owned an Agile or SX this just seemed like a good place to talk guitars.

    This is her in all her glory scars and all.

    Wolf is the house brand for KHL. They claim they are Korean, but it could be that they are actually built in Vietnam.
    Either way, they are ridiculously good looking guitars. Fit and finish is good, though not quite on par with Agile or PRS SE. Electronics are cheap (think mini pots) but functional.

    All in one is their local importer, out of Los Angeles.
