So, I'm on vacation for the week & after selling off a bunch of gear lately, I decided to pay a visit to a killer music store near me just to see what they had. I noticed they had all their Charvel USA Production Models for a great price. So, being that I'm a gearwhore & not retarded except on cheap beer drinkfests with Donnie, I thought I'd give them a whirl.

Specs:

I NEED SOME FR00TY PUPS & ACCESSORIES NOW.

Fantastic choice. :yesway: You went with exactly the one I would have picked as well. You can't go wrong with those Charvels.

Yeah, man. So far, this sucker is really bringing out the EVH in me.

So, Mr. Fr00t....
How should I trick out this guitar? Remember, my main axe is the UV777GR, so I'm pretty much up for anything. :lol:

Outstanding choice, Shannon... blue + maple = hot!

I wouldn't do a thing to it. I love how minimal and perfect they are.

And as cool as i think the Tele-style ones are, there's something about a Tele-style body with a Strat headstock that's just wrong. Those ones would have been great with the angled Jackson-style headstock.

Long & McQuade is blowing out the Tele-style ones this month for CAD$699. Very tempting.

Thanks, Darren.
Per the music store, Charvel is doing their last batch of USA production models, then production models are going to be built overseas & they will only build customs in the USA. Pretty sad, so get these while you can as they will probably be collector's items.

I haven't been able to set down "Ol' Bloo" since I got her & I'm serious thinking of pulling the trigger on the Slime Green one from the 8th & final production batch.

Mmm... very tempting indeed.

Oh, Lee... your signature guitar is calling!



That Slime Green one is just SCREAMING for a set of H-S-H pink DiMarzios.

Nice score Shannon :yesway: These are indeed bad-assed guitars. I've been debating grabbing a slime green before they're gone since I sold the purple tele style I had...

Damn, just when I bought this...



...the Slime Green comes out. I want it bad.

Agreed with the San Dimas 2 looking odd with the tele body+strat head. Nice choice on the blue as well. Looks fantastic. :hbang:

And I want that Wildcard too... damn, everyone needs to get a US Charvel asap. :yesway:

Yeah man, I have a feeling if you don't get one of these now, their value is going to skyrocket pretty soon. I'm already on the head for my 2nd one. :lol:
