    If you could have a signature model...

    What would it be and what's the spec?

    I've come to realise now (finally, only took 15 years) that the whole Charvel pro-mod thing (or any sup'd-up strat) is absolutely me all over. A strat with an FR was my first ever guitar, and no matter how much I go around the block with trying different things, that's just what a guitar *should* look and feel like to me in my head and I always default back to it. I love all guitars for what they are, and I love trying different things for different tonal flavours and looks, but that whole 80's/90's hot-rodded strat is absolutely my deal. I think even if I got back into a death metal band I'd still use my San Dimas

    1 piece maple neck
    maple board
    Alder body
    1 vol, nothing else
    3-way toggle
    22XJ frets
    Seymour Duncan JB/59 combo, or maybe H-S-S and have Cool Rails/Hot Rails
    Maybe reverse headstock. I always loved them but sometimes they just don't look right.
    Probably a natural oil finish on the body.

    Either a les paul or prs singlecut.

    Not sure if i'd go maple or hog neck - i have both, and both kick ass. Hog body, maple cap, 22 frets, adjustable wraparound bridge, two 59's, trans green with binding, natural back, 2v2t w/ toggle. Ideally 8lbs.

    The BSM Warlock II was really close except for the scale and the low quality quilt.
