Yep, that's one of the things I had in mind.

I was all set to order one of these until I had nearly 2000 dollars worth of roof damage that had to be fixed....

Seems like I am going to get a 65-ish Vox Challenger within the next few weeks or so. I will post some pics as soon as possible :love:

This is wrong on so many levels (which is probably why it appeals to me so much :D) ..............I'm sorely tempted to take a punt at that price.

Just make the music that you enjoy (failing that go for a walk, watch some porn, have a fight with a random bloke until something else happens).

That sucks hibidy, hope you don't have to put the Charvel on hold too long. I'm curious why you pick it over a strat?
Ian B, I can't believe they can make for 70 pounds. Nice find, thanks.
Redmerkurii, hehe! I haven't seen that one before. Did you see the misa digital? hot damn!
I wish I had held out a couple of months after I bought the tele. I saw a natural one within my budget in Hobart. Mine is black. That's the finish I would like too, natural or butterscotch. I guess i could dress it if I got keen. hmm maybe not!
I have one of those badass bass bridges on a bass I built and have lent to a friend. It's so nice :)
I google Vox challenger :)

I really like it but I've had some issues of late (will require research)

i'm gonna buy me a selmer / maccaferri model jazz clone, probably a gitane d-500 ( http://www.thomann.de/pt/gitane_dg500.htm ).

The guitar I want is a Reverend Double Agent II in black:

But I don't need it at all of course.

I'd also like to get a 12 string electric. I don't like the feel of Rics in general, I might go for another Phantom, a PH 12:

This is my current Project. I guess it qualifies as my next Guitar.

Image
It is a Les Paul type circuit in a Fender body. The pickups are 1968 P90s.

I am just about to order a maple neck with a ebony fretboard. All of the hardware [trem,jack,tuners etc] and knobs are going to be replaced with black themed ones.

I am going to put a oem Earvana compensated nut on it as well.

I am getting the sound I want out of the neck pickup but the bridge pickup I am going to move 20mm closer to the neck, which means I have to router a new pickguard and shield it.

This one.

Never been a big PRS fan, too many compromises for my taste.
But this is different, David Grissom's signature model DGT.
The guy's got taste - he spec'd all the right little tweaks, basically it's a McCarty with the great PRS trem, nitro finish, special neck, Alnico II PUs, dual volume / single tone, perfectly tweaked tone / bleed caps ... :love:
And the gold top finish suits perfectly imho.
One of these days ... :shrug:

£70? It wasn't that long ago I took a punt on a V copy at £40, and that included a small 10 watt amp. The guitar has since been given away, but the amp is still used downstairs.

These budget guitars are my forte, tho' I couldn't in all honesty recommend anyone buy one without being prepared to spend more on a full setup to get the best out of them.
