    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. :D

    Nice! I still prefer my Ibanez, but those Charvels with the Floyd Rose are sick. And you're right, that aggressive sound will give you that "edge" you say you were missing.

    Only thing that bugs me a little, there's no way to get both humbuckers on at the same time. So it's more stratty sounding than it seems.

    I love Charvels. I had a So-Cal style in the early 90s that I loved and sold it when it needed fret work! Reget that one all the time. Great guitar! Enjoy!

    looks like a super versatile guitar and I love the shape

    I also envy you for your job (I'm guilty of three out of the "seven deadly sins")

    but only three cuz I don't understand one of them
