I bought my wolfgang about a month and ago and love it. I always wanted to get the early "brown sound" and always thought that it was 50% equipment and 50% Ed. I bought a JCM 800 (85) and connected a THD Hot Plate up to it. I read several articles stating that you couldnt get those tones etc. etc. with "apartment level volume" utilizing a THD Hot Plate. I will dispel those rumors, you can! The sound is incredible! Master all the way up, gain on 5, 16db drop from the hotplate, slightly overdriven with the BOSS GT-6, pinch of compressor and some reverb, back the volume knob off on the guitar to around 8 or 9 and there you have it. Full stack at a comfortable level. BTW I still feel it's Ed's playing definitely is a factor, up strokes on Panama, muting techniques in Unchained, and pull offs and hammer-ons in On-Fire to name a few. I can post samples if interested. Oh, and BTW the Wolfgang is definitely one of the best guitars I have ever played. Just my 2 cents.

Post some sound clips. I would be interested in checking them out. I'm debating on a new amp now. Was thinking Marshall VM but I hear such good things about the 5150 III that I might just give that a go. I want a really clean channel like only a Fender can give so that might the one, although you gotta love any Marshall cranked.
