Sweetwater has dropped the price on Charvel San Dimas Style 2 dual-humbucker guitars. I mean, it's down to levels that I don't think I've seen on USA-built guitars in years. I can't swing this right now, but dang!
And yeah, it isn't really a Tele. It's got 'buckers and a Floyd Rose. And you know what? I'm OK with that. I'd twang on it up on one anyway. And maybe, just maybe, I'd learn what to do with one of those whammy bars besides hang the instrument by it like Vai did in Crossroads.
