Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Man that's nice. It's got more of a Suhr type styling to it than just typical Charvel. They rarely use figured tops.

    I believe this was a limited NAMM run. The one piece Mahogany body is really nice. I played one locally and it is smoking. Right up their with my Andersons and Suhrs for a lot less dough. The neck profile is a bit on the flat side, but it seems to be typical Charvel.

    USA Production models come out July 15. Street price will be $999.00.
    They ditched the Jackson headstock and have gone exclusively to the Strat headstock, which makes me happy.

    Sadly, the one in the OP is not one of the production models. That one is a custom shop that is a couple grand.

    I wish it was though!

    Sorry, I was responding to your question about the new models coming out.

    The one pictured is definitely a custom shop job.

    Beautiful guitar. I held that one at NAMM, that one had the best feeling neck of any of the new Charvels I tried.

    More Jackson than Charvel, IMHO. Still...very cool indeed.
