NGD! Camoflage Charvel Mutt

Here's my latest project, a Multicam camoflage Charvel Mutt. The neck is a genuine Charvel San Dimas reissue, the body was custom made by Mojo Bodies to Charvel San Dimas specs, the bridge is an OFR and pickups are Dimarzios (Tone Zone in the bridge and Chopper in the neck).

The design is something I came up with (not that original but I like it) and Mike Learn, who paints guitars for Charvel and Jackson, did the paint job. Turnaround time was about 6 weeks (including 4 days for the NAMM show) from his door to mine and the quality is as good as any I've seen. I just picked this up from my tech today and as expected, it plays like butter.

BTW, I'm originally from New Hampshire hence the state's motto on the back and custom engraved neck with the state emblem.

Very cool - very 80's nostalgia

not a fan of camo (or any "picture-ish" finishes) but that's badass.

Exactly. That's what I'm all about. 80s guitar finishes were the pinnacle of guitar finishes for me.

When I started playing back in '82, natural wood finishes were on their way out, unless it was on a Les Paul or Strat, and graphic finishes were rising in popularity. Fast forward to today and the opposite is true. The cycle of life continues.

That's FANTASTIC!!!! It's a shame that the guitar manufacturers and their endorsed players are so conservative these days in terms of colors and finishes

Glad to hear that. I'm getting a new truss rod cover engraved with "Molon Labe" to top it off.
