    I love this. Reminds me of the Charvel USA Primer Scream model they did a while back. Will likely be a purchase for me this year.

    Did they get rid of all the Desolation models?

    Pretty sure they ditched that line a year or two ago when the Pro Mod series returned full-time.

    That style 2 has given me GAS like I haven't had in a while.

    It was the only way to get a Skatecaster though, dang

    Can't say I'm too shocked though, the whole line concept was a decade too late

    Can't tell from the pics, but do the style 2's have an elbow contour or are they like traditional teles. Also wondering how contoured the heel really is?

    Elbow cut and significant on the heel from how it looks. Doesn't take much to make a big difference in feel there.

    Looks like a forearm/elbow contour to me. The heel looks similar to something Fender used to do. It's the typical block heel but the leading corner is rounded back a bit. Fender used sort of a cut-off neck plate with it. Looks like for Charvel they just ditched the neck plate. The block heel never bothered me, so I'm not the right person to say whether the contour really offered anything.

    NATO? No wonder it's cheap. :scratch:

    There's nothing about nato that makes it unsuitable for guitars. It's cheap because it grows in Indonesia and usually, the guitars are also made there.

    Many "mahogany" Ibanez are actually nato.

    I've never been a Tele fan, but there is something about this one that is speaking to me.

    Yes, really nice. Anyone know the price these will go for?

    I also like the new Guthrie.

    Really digging the look of this. Swapping out the pickups would make this a great guitar if the rest of the specs are right.

    I just took a look at Charvel's site and it shows Guthrie's new models have an MSRP at least $1200 cheaper than the last models. That would be great to get these things below the $3k mark.
