    Well, Fender owns Charvel and Jackson. If you want a custom 7 strat with a vintage trem I guess Charvel would make it.

    I like those mixed type series though, the troublemaker tele and the whiteguard strat specifically.

    Charvel could if they actually accepted custom orders from mere mortals.

    I dig it, waiting for an HH or HS model though. I think the Jazz bass vibes from the inlays are awesome.

    Apparently they decided perfect replicas of vintage instruments is stupid and axed the American Vintage series completely in favor of something more like the old AV Hotrod series called the American Original series...

    I always thought that's what the custom shop runs were for. I forsee a lot of really pissed off people.

    According to Andertons, most custom shop orders come with recent necks profiles. People like vintage bug playing on a 7 radius neck isn't vintage, it's masochistic.
