ok, so I turned 40 last year (nearly a year ago now!) and at the time my wife had promised me an extra special gift, your only 40 once right, so I`d set my heart on a USA Charvel Wildcard, I managed to locate a dealer in the UK that was getting only 1 of 25 being made and was lucky enough to get in quick and put down a 20% deposit on it and await its arrival to the dealer smile.gif

at the last minute Charvel changed the way they were going to distribute these 25 guitars and the dealer was no longer getting the one promised from Charvel, to say I was gutted is an understatement, but there ya go, thats life sad.gif deposit was refunded and although they offered me plenty of alternatives even at very good discounted prices (due to me being let down so badly) nothing was really hitting the spot and I couldnt see the point of getting something that basically wasnt what I wanted!

anyways, a year on and I still really want to get a Charvel guitar, I really like the "So cal" model and they also do what is called a pro mod version which is made in Japan instead of the USA and along with it a little cheaper in price, all reviews actually say that they think the Japanese made Charvels are slightly better than the USA ones, but anyways, slightly cheaper is always good! smile.gif

This year for my birthday at the end of the month, (because my wife didn`t actually end up getting me anything for my birthday last year dry.gif ) she`s agreed to buy me one of these Japanese model Charvels, hoorah! biggrin.gif

question is what colour shall I get?? I cant decide out of these two

Candy Blue

Snow white


I quite like the idea of the Snow White one as in an ideal world with lots of spare cash I`d buy the Jackson Adrian Smith Signature model, but I really like the Candy blue one too

which one guys??? blink.gif oh .. and getting both is NOT an option I`m told laugh.gif

Those are both beautiful I must say, that would be a hard choice I think the snow white stands out to me, I duno why but with the way the pick guard looks the snow white looks better to my eyes. Kind of like its stylish as if it was wearing a tux. Well that and I love penguins so maybe its just the white/black. tongue.gif

yep, I`m really leaning towards the White one as well, I`ve played one of these guitars so I do like them and know what I`m getting, I still keep having that second thought though of "what else can I get for around £600??" laugh.gif

I think I`m defo gunna go for one of these tho, I nearly bought one a year ago and regretted not going through with it purely coz I still had a bitter taste in my mouth after getting let down with the wildcard!

It would be black n white for me - but man, it's a hard choice as both are very beautiful.

Either way you choose - you end up with an awesome instrument smile.gif
Congrats! smile.gif

Personally, I'd go with the white one...

But did you try the sold out trick? I.e. if you would walk into the store ready to buy either the blue or white one, and they would tell you one of them is sold out, for which one would you feel the most disappointment smile.gif? Works for me quite often smile.gif....

They are both beautiful, tough choice to make! Personally I would probably vote for the blue, since I have a blue Les Paul and tend to lean toward blue guitars in the first place.
