Taking another shot at it, since Yahoo won't let you linky link.

I miss my Day-Glo orange Charvel Fusion. I am a big baby about it, too.

Pictures of it don't do justice to how ridiculously bright orange it was. It actually hurt your eyes to stare at it in sunlight.
I only paid $125 for it, and I would gladly pay $500 to get it back.

i know a guy who has one of those! His is like a white sparkle though. It sounded immense, and while I'm not normally into superstrats, the neck on this thing was lovely.

This thread should probably be moved to non offsets... i reckon.

I really miss my first electric guitar, an Epiphone wine red SG with Gibson pickups. I sold it cos it was a little 'top-heavy', which got irritating when I was playing. Loved the thin neck and the pickups! sigh...

-sigh- This is something I regret to this day. I got for my high school graduation in 1999 a 1957 neck on 1963 Olympic white and tortiose shell Duo-Sonic from Jammin' Jersey's in Northridge, CA for $650 with tax (and 70's hardshell case) and I played it until I got my Strat a year later. So in a fit of "I NEED AN ACOUSTIC!!!" I went to Guitar Center, played every acoustic I could and decided upon an Ibanez Artwood acoustic guitar (which I still own) that had not been priced yet. So I go get my Duo-Sonic from the car to trade, and they go for it imediately (I should have smelled something fishy), and I leave with a new Ibanez acoustic and a pack of strings and a strap. The next week I go into the store, and I see the same model priced $299.99!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I almost shit my pants....


BIGGEST regret ever. I have pics of it somewhere....it was nice. Never stayed in tune, but it was a sight to see....
