  • Charvel Surfcasters are so hot.

    They're like the perfect marriage of Fender, Rickenbacker, and Dano:



    I've tried to figure out if these guitars have any flaws, and no, they don't. They are perfect guitars. Why they reduced them to this, I have no clue:



    I like this and all, but it just isn't quite so droolish IMO.

      I think you mean you "do want."

        I like the first one, but the angled lipsticks just don't do it for me.

          i bid on a Surfcaster 12 string years a few years ago after being bitten by the Ric 12 bug. it went for way more than i was willing to spend. ended up with a Dano.

            What about this one?





            I think I splooged.

              Creme binding and p-90's and you've got me.

                You are hard to please, Leroy! I like Surfcasters more than Jazzmasters. Heresy.

                  To each his own. I'm just not a big fan of the looks of this model for some reason (Jazzmasters don't have p-90's btw).

                    Do you like the new Modern Player Jaguars, then? They've got a lot of what you want, at a lower price:



                    I like them, though that Strat jack looks weird.

                      I agree with you about the strat jack. It seems like Fender decides to **************** up ONE feature of every potentially cool guitar that comes out.

                      That being said, I'd buy one.

                        So true about they **************** up one feature at a time.

                        Honestly, I would just install P-94 style pickups into an Fender Jaguar HH Special, which are awesome:



                        I feel like Fender Japan offsets generally get it right, and that's the frustrating thing. You go to Fender Japan's website and see hot guitar after hot guitar, and then you look at what we get here.

                          Yeah, there's a hollowbody Jazzmaster as well as a Jag with F-holes I want.

                              Strange... Usually JM's have their really wide single coils, although they're usually confused with p-90's or swapped out for them. I plan on scoping out a Squier Mascis as soon as I can.
