Well I finally made my decision to get the Charvel San Dimas 1 2H as it fits my playing style and sound very well. It arrived on Sunday and has been a dream to play (after setting up the floyd )

It stays in tune real well and only goes slightly sharp after hours of whammy abuse. I highly recommend it for any 80s rock lovers













Now I need a decent amp :P

I love the color. HNGD.

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

HNCD!

The paint on that is bright! Is the floyd surface-mounted/dive only?

It's a shame I've got a Spider III for an amp :/ I'm getting that off my hands ASAP

Man, I want one of these... the only thing I don't like about the new Charvels is the fact that they have bolt-on necks... I know it's essential for a true superstrat, as in a guitar that truly feels like a hot rotted stratocaster, but for some reason for the past year and a half I haven't even been seriously considering getting a guitar with a bolt-on neck... but this one... hot damn!

Yeah bolt-ons used to put me off too. But the reason people have a general dislike to them is because they are cheap to manufacture, hence being on low-end budget guitars giving people the impression that theyre not as good or something. Although, if you find a guitar thats of nice build quality like this Charvel, the bolt-on really doesnt matter, some say bolt-ons give a brighter tone

The necks are very thin and comfortable, and it is a compound radius neck, meaning the neck becomes thinner as you ascend the frets,

Ah, bummer. I've been interested in them lately, but I can't play thin necks at all. Nice axe, anyway, simple, effective, and green. Kickass.
