so me and my charvel didnt really get along....cool neck, didnt care much for the finish or the sound, and the entire guitar felt a little cheap ... i forgot how light basswood was haha

oh well

traded it for a like new yamaha pacifica 821!


huh? yamaha? arent those low end guitars?

nope! not this one

born in 1994

she comes loaded with:


very nice c shape thin neck
24 frets
level frets
dimarzio air classics in the neck and bridge
dimarzio blue velvet in the middle
5 way switch
tone + vol knob
TRS pro trem
the locking nut has 2 screws which allow you to adjust the height of the nut on the fly.


she sounds beautiful, plays amazing, neck is more amazing than the charvel, and its made out of a nice alder body

New guitar looks sick, love that color. It the same color as my car actually laugh.gif

Yamaha also makes some really nice acoustics as well, bit pricey, But they sound great.
