    I have a person offering me what he claims is a US Charvel Bengal guitar. He says it isn't custom but it has the bengal paint job.

    Did Charvel put the bengal paint job on non-custom guitars are does this guy not realize that it is custom?

    Here it is:

    Doesn't look quite like the typical tiger stripe job that they do. There are plenty of graphics guys who aren't busy these days.

    Yep, that's what I'm afraid of; that the paint job was done after the fact by some random person.

    Why does this frighten you? If the price isn't bad, consider it an upgrade.

    Well, he wants to trade the guitar plus $200 for my Orange AD30HTC. I'm scared if I don't care for it, I won't be able to sell it to get my money back

    How much is the Orange worth?

    IMO, this is not a $1200 guitar used.

    No, he is giving me the guitar plus $200 (and a crate powerblock) for my Orange AD30HTC.

    Sorry, I made that confusing :bonk

    I agree it's a fair deal.

    Yeah, I think i'm going to do it. I like the strips even though some people don't. I think I'm just going to get me a Jet City to replace the Orange. I don't play out at all right now because I'm in school and have a 5 week old baby boy.
