Your thoughts on the EVH Charvels...
Are they players or just collector's peices?

Interesting question actually. Hard to justify that cost for a player that's for sure!

I played one. The action wasn't amazingly low, but DAMN. EASILY the most playable guitar I ever felt. Frets felt like butter, the guitar was well setup, it resonated great, the neck felt amazing. I'd never shell out 2,200 pounds for it. I don't think it's worth that much at all. But it sure is a GREAT guitar.

Why? They are in the ballpark of Les Pauls and PRSs. I know what you mean though, I lot of money for a super strat. I wonder why he didn't use them as his main axe on the last tour instead of the WG.

Anyway, I always wanted a VH2 guitar!

Probably a clause in his contract with Peavey.
He probably didn't get a lot of flack over the Artist series, since they target a small niche market.

I believe his last tour was after he parted ways with Peavey.

I'd consider picking one up if they were cheaper, as they'd be a really cool guitar to have in future. However, it seems the EVH royalty markup has pushed it out of my price range by quite a bit!

I had a B/W Striped one... It was ok. The Pick-Up
was very hot and it sounded great... The Neck
and Body felt Exactly like my 2005 American
Strat. I couldn't justify keeping it so I sent it back.
I have an Original San Dimas Serial # 1211 and the neck is
Totally different. Slimmer Flatter and plays like a dream ...

What does #1211 look like? I don't see a photo registered in the Charvel Hall of Fame...always nice to see what's out there...
I also collect San Dimas Charvels...
