    I've had about 2 dozen over all but only really have two now.
    My Jackson Dinky that's heavily modded and just all kinds of fun to play.

    The bigger the hair, the bigger the tone....

    I always thought Warren DiMartini had very “ tastefully flashy” guitars, and he played the same way-

    I’m too busy trying to unsee Stevie’s shorts to hear much.

    Here's mine... Really a great guitar! One of Fender's best kept secrets IMO.

    Mine is a Music Man Silhouette Special. I put a 5 way super switch in, and 2 humbuckers: a Custom Custom and an Alnico II Pro. Oh, and it has a scalloped fretboard.

    I don't think Atomic Guitar Works would be accessable to me in my location. I was considering getting a Mexican Charvel and fixing an OFR to it. I am not sure that will make the guitar as good playing and sounding an instrument as a US made - or Japanese made - one. I can fix all good stuff on it but the wood remains the same.

    I’ve never played one of the current MIM pro-mods but I hear they are very good quality guitars for the price point. Buying a US custom shop Charvel doesn’t make any sense unless you have money falling out of your butt. If you can find a used MIJ pro-mod on eBay, those are comparable to the US pro-mods when they stil made them here. Either way, Upgrading to a OFR would take it to another level. Disclaimer: I don’t want to make it sound like anything less than an OFR is crap; the nicer (hardened steel) licensed ones are ok but you can definitely tell a difference in quality between them and the one made in Germany.

    This guitar was ordered and built for Rainbow Guitars in Tuscon AZ.
    It's a legitimate one of one.

    Love the Showmaster with 3 singles. I ended up putting in the Dimarzio Injector pickups as I usual. The neck is amazing. I love these pickups because they sound awesome with gain but still great on clean. I also replaced the tremolo with an American Deluxe, and the tuners with Kluson diecast.

    Being the unabashed G&L fanboi I am, I'd go for an Invader in a heartbeat.

    I've always thought The Charvel Spectrum looked really cool but never played one...

    Upgraded a Squire with a GF super strat kit and lil killer pick ups.
    Also my recentley repared Jackson Dinky with Dave Mustaine pups. Will most likely ditch those for non active ones. Great pick ups but don't want to be tied to a battery.
