It's certainly a far cry from the previous MISHA jackson sig axe isn't it? That was a more METAL HEAD type of 7 string guitar, complete with his custom high gain pups and an Evertune bridge, that you'd expect from the guy in PERIPHERY. Then bam, he specs an HSS strat. Hehehe smile.gif I'm not knocking him or it, just find it all amusing.

Here he is talking about both of his signature jackson models.

I'm never interested in Signture guitars, but I have to say that I love how Charvel guitars look nowadays. I've tried this one some time ago and I loved it.

Yeah! hahaha. I really liked it, however I'm not sure if I would get a Floyd Rose guitar again. That's the only thing that didn't convince me.

But I know that there are similar versions with strat type bridge (with tremolo).

This guy has lots of Charvel guitars..

These look great. The lack of pick guard looked cool on the one of you in the picture. Then again, pick guards can make some axes cooler smile.gif The charvels that don't have a floyd, do have locking tuners in many cases so they maintain tuning stability and such. I"ve always wanted one of the 'SandDimas" charvel. This design was very popular back in the day with Sunset Strip Metal bands in the 80s and it's become a classic. smile.gif
