Although I looove Teles, I wasn't particularly after a Tele shape guitar this time. But this was the one in the local ads that ticked all the boxes for what I was after: Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 HH FR E QM I do soundtrack and sound design for TV. This Charvel has all the tones and features that were missing from my current arsenal. I'm working on a show that has hard rockin' mean characters. This will suit them well! I haven't had a Floyd Rose since my very first guitar in the early 90s (a pointy Ibanez thing). I can divebomb like when I was a kid, but with a guitar that fits my age.
