Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

Inspired by the Charvel Socal.

Alder Body
Tung oiled maple neck and fretboard
Wilkinson WVP6SB bridge
Wilkinson EZ-LOK Mini Flat Sided Tuners
Tone Zone/Air Norton pickups
2 volume 1 tone
3-way switch - no coil splitting
"Trem-nut" nut and string trees
Medium Jumbo frets
Neck is not thin or thick. Kind of medium I guess. Very flat radius.

Re: Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

Nice, I like it a lot!
I would maybe get a 3 ply pg with a white stripe in it though. Also I like the look of black but the fingerprints kill me so good luck with that. That is why I'm starting to hate my Black Strat lol. The maple looks amazing with black though, wish I had maple instead of rosewood

Thanks, I don't like three ply pickguards especially on black. It was hard to find this one ply. And yeah lots of fingerprints I guess.

Re: Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

Forgot to mention I like the diff color saddles with the plate being black. I've always liked that, probably why I really want a piezo ibanez lol

oh, and why do you have 2 tone knobs if there are 2 volumes?

The package of knobs came that way, It doesn't bother me really.

Re: Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

Lol sorry its just Mr. Perfectionist here, but I don't care either way. I kinda like one of the volume pots having a tone knob since it is kinda like your "secret." No one else will ever know that you have 2 volumes >_<

Re: Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

I like it just as it is but if you threw a mid single coil in it I would run over my granny for it.

Re: Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

It's like, how much more black can you get?, and the answer is none. None more black.

Maybe more black with an ebony fretboard!

That is hot, I love it. Where did you get the neck and body from?

Re: Newest project Charvel/Strat pics

That's very nice! Loving it. I agree, the "Tricky Tone-Knob" design would be pretty funny when watching someone who's never played it before try to figure it out.
