xx 2013 Charvel Pro Mods
« Thread started on: Mar 16th, 2013, 09:22am »

Can't seem to find them on charvels website at the minute, but some indirect references have been made to them via dealers etc

Scoop is, new San Dimas style 1's and SoCals are being made at fenders mexican plant with the same aesthetic as the old US ones from a few years ago, and are about 200 cheaper. Now i always kicked myself for not buying one, and i never bought one of the MIJ pro mods because i liked the visual style of the US ones better. Now i wish i had (and still could) because to be blunt, I'll take MIJ over MIM at the same price point any day of the week.

I know better than to be sniffy about MIM, but.. i guess i would have preferred an MIA or MIJ. They weren't exactly expensive when new.. just never got around to buying one

No Idea whether the MIJ ones are still being made, although plenty out there still. Why couldn't they have just made the MIJ's in the same style as the MIA's..

anywho..

Well you could always get a tremolo stopper if you don't like recessed models. grin

BTW, remember these? I always thought batch #7 of the USA production models was the best run for this series. Clearly not an Anderson or a Suhr, but they appeared to be a pretty good value for what was offered.

Oh i do.. they were nice.. that was one of the last batches before switching to japan wasn't it?

I'd thought about getting one of these and a trem setter, however.. my own personal view on floyds, after having owned a peavey wolfgang and owning an axis, is that there's no better way to set one up, where possible, other than flat on the body. I genuinely believe it improves the tone and sustain for being in contact with the rest of the guitar that way, in addition to the other benefits which the tremsetter provides. the floating trem on those really is a deal breaker for me sad

gutted..
