    Its also made of Nato which is a budget wood typically found in entry-level guitars. Still, I think it looks like a solid budget guitar and I'd consider one if I was in the market for another tele.

    I like that they did away with the inlay on the pro-mod duplantier, it was my biggest gripe with the usa version, I just can't get over a glaring artist signature/decal.

    Also, I would've preferred 22 frets on the style 2-7. IMO teles just look better with 22 frets.

    Nah, it's perfect as is. Blank ebony fretboard, H-S-H config... Perfect Superstrat. I even like the red. :lol:

    Also, the Joe D sig is going to be the unsung hero of NAMM.

    These new Style 2 Pro Mods are crushing it. Everything I wanted in a Style 2 and got in my Sully 624T! Beautiful contours!

    Interesting jack placement.

    I would like to see how small the heel got? And if it applies to all the models?

    Haha, shows how each of us is looking for different things. I see contours on a Tele body and think "ick. That's not how a Tele should be!"

    It's on the Super Stock and Model 2s. Wonder if they're blowing out the last of the Style 1s and So Cals before changing them over.

    I know it is still early but does anyone know how much the Gojira Pro Mod is going to street for? I think this might just be my next purchase.

    My guess would be somewhere around $600 based on the msrp of $827.

    If that price isn't a misprint, a $600 price tag is a must-get from me.

    Actually just emailed Charvel about the price.

    I'm really liking these Pro-Mod Style 2's. If I didn't have a Sully on order, I would've settled for one of these. I might still consider a Duplantier to mess around with if the price turns out to be $600.

    Life is beautiful.

    Gonna be a close call between this, the new Jackson MF and the Schecter E-1...

    I'm digging the X-series MF-1. Cool specs on that one too for just $700. I'm really interested in his signature EMG pickups.
