    *The Quilt Top Special is the only Wolfgang not made in the USA.
    Made in Korea to same specs as US, only real difference the quilt-top is veneer and the neck has a polyurethane finish

    The neck shape on the Music Man Axis and Peavey Wolfgangs have a non-symetrical radius. Best described via the picture below.
