damn.....comes with OFR for that price? And why in the hell do they still do that extended trem route on the non speed loader equipped ones I wonder? I am thinking they make one style body for both style trems maybe? Either way its a good looking guitar, never played one though.
I agree the extended trem route looks a little out of place on this one.
BTW, I think this is basically the same model body you got from my boss, without the pickguard and with a single humbucker. I kinda liked the neck on his. I have to think this would be a great guitar for the money.

Not sure, I think the horns on this one of you bosses are shaped a little different. I have thought about sanding that body to bare wood and seeing what the grain looks like and maybe do a natural oil finish. Not a big fan of blue guitars. But on the other hand I kinda hate to ruin a pretty minty paint job too.

I checked out a Squier the other day, one of their new series, the Classic Vibe I think it was, one of the 57 reissue type ones.
Man, that was a cute guitar. The sunburst on it was beautiful. The guitars coming out of China right now are damn good quality. I'm a big Eric Johnson fan. With better pickups that little guitar could do well. The headstock had a touch of birdseye too. I have way too many guitars so I had to leave it, but it was super nice.

Odd thing: the bassist from my band emailed me saying he bought a new guitar and was really happy, he described it...and then I knew it was the same one...! This also happened with a Tokai SG he bought, I tried it then maybe a week later without me saying anything about it, he bought it! He traded that Tokai to buy it. Really odd!
Okay 2 rare Charvel's are today's guitar of the day.
Never heard of this model until snooping around for rare guitars lastnight at work. This one is $3000US. Its a Ritz, supposedly Wayne Charvel was involved with these and only 150 were ever made. This is in the exotic series.
No idea what model this is. Supposedly its a proto with no stamped neck plate with serial # hand written in neck pocket. This one if for sale right now for $7000.
