It's a tuxedo. Wear it proudly.
not for lefties. It's pretty much black, or white for us. I'd think about switching the pickups and knobs if it were me. I do like it the way it is though.Kind of crappy you ended up with black because Charvel has some pretty awesome colors in their lineup.
But if it were me, I would put in some zebra humbuckers for sure.
i'm a lefty, it's impossible to find the specs i want (floyd, S style body, no pointy headstock, 12-16 compound radius with 43mm nut, C shape neck) in a finish i like without going custom.Sell it and get one you like the looks of.
There are a ton of guitars out there at every price point. Though being a lefty puts the pinch on this, I'm sure.
Whatever you decide, good luck with it.
warmoth+shipping and import costs+ a luthier to put it together etc would cost me about as much as a custom built by a local luthier.Yeah, I'll bet it is tough.
Have you looked at Warmoth?
the idea of relic has crossed my mind, but i don't know if it would look good together with the gloss finishI also do not care for black guitars. If I were not going to strip it, I would do a relic job, those are the only black ones I prefer. I had a black Peavey Raptor once, and stripped it to paint is blue and did a Paisley pickguard.
