NGD: Is this a fake?

So I bought myself an MIA Charvel.



But I think it's the wrong shape?




I have never seen a Charvel like this before, is it legit?

That is the exact guitar I used to have. Ridiculously fast neck. I miss that guitar.


EDIT: Pics of mine.

Dammit Tom! Stop buying stuff! You obviously have way too much money and should send some to me. I can totally make it worth your while

Seriously, looks like a beast, HNGD!

So you just bought the guitar even though you had suspicions of it being a fake?

It's either a heavily modified Route 66, or a Charvel neck on whatever tele body that comes with 2 humbuckers.

EDIT: Or that San Dimas.

Yeah its not a fake, just felt like I had to be a div...

Long story short, I got this a few weeks ago, its a Type 2 San Dimas, its made in america and its very nice, though it wont be around for long as it was more a passing fancy, though I can say the build quality is 100% top notch and the sound is huge.

The neck is also one of the nicest I have ever played, smooth and fret work is done to perfection. They are a great buy when you think of the quality of the parts.
