    NGD II : Custom Charvel + Warmoth / Ash + Maple

    So... Like I said in this thread :

    NGD : BC Rich ASM / Black + Maple

    ... I ordered myself 3 six-stringers with the goal of keeping just one. Here's contender number 2. This one I ordered after brutally and spontaneously falling in love just seeing the pics on the web... And all of this without a reverse headstock...

    - Neck is a Charvel one piece maple neck off of one of the new production series USA San Dimas guitars.

    - Jumbo frets. Oil finish. Very Fast and smooth. Schaller tuners.

    - The body is a Warmoth Soloist, swamp ash with a tung oil finish.

    - Original Floyd rose made in Germany and includes the upgrade of the Big Brass Block.

    - The Neck plate is from the same Charvel the neck came from with a serial number of 001519.

    - The pickups are Seymour Duncans, the bridge is a TB-14 Custom 5 and the neck is a SHR-1 Hot Rails.

    - One volume control and one three way pickup switch.

    At the end of the day, I still prefer thinner neck profiles (like the old school Charvels) but man, if I have to have a guitar with a "Straty" neck : this is it.
    As far as "rounder' neck goes, those "new" Charvels necks are made in heaven IMO. I've tried many of new Charvel San Dimas batch before and the guitars as a whole did not convince me (I don't like non-recessed Floyds, for instance)... But man, that one just screams and has tons of mojo.

    The tone is freaking amazing. I'm in love : really bright and articulate, as I like it. Pickups are a perfect fit so far for this beast. I also love the fact that there is no tone knob... It probably has a psychological effect on the tone for me.

    So far, this one > the BC Rich.

    Enjoy the pics.

    (the "marks" over the pickups aren't marks, they're in the ash figure)

    That is sooo full of win.

    Although I am obligated to deduct a point for a non reverse headstock.

    If you decide to *not* keep that one... let me know?

    That looks awesome!

    Very, very nice! I love the natural ash/maple combo.

    Woooo. Nice one.

    I've got something, um, Charvel related that should be making an appearance on here in the next few weeks.
