Gotta be the Charvelized Strat 8) With its dual humbucking pickups and 3 cam volume controls it sounds great :lol: not to mention the chrome stock neck with maple syrup body :wink: Just kidding i have no idea what im talking about but that guitar is my choice. :roll:

Well, I'm in over my head right now. I'm currently building 5 guitars right now at the same time. Maybe the Blueburst will take shape sooner than I think. I've got several Jackson Custom shop guitars on order as well. Man, I'm busy and this is just a hobby :lol:

Breathtaken Classic photo's of Jake E. Lee with his Classic Rebel Guitars (Jakey Babies/his Blueprint Signature Instruments!) - I know that the B/W Charvelized Strat most be Jake E. Lee's personal favorite and just about everyone here chosen the Classic Guitar master design model. Although I've chosen the Blue Charvel Guitar (during his live performances of Killer of Giants, he playing on the Blue Charvel, I believe...-bad ass Guitar Solo! and on Bark At the Moon JAKE is Trailblazing on the B/W Charvel Guitar kicking it live & Street Cry Freedom is gripping Guitar Solo, as well etc.,.!) - the B/W Charvelized Strat is also among my favorite Jake E. Lee Classic Guitars & I really like the ESP Jake E. Lee Signatures, as well. Beautiful & magnificent Classic Guitars JAKE choose/picked "all" of them well and the newest Guitar (Xtone Guitar, I think) his playing on the Jake E. Lee-Retraced album/Cd is awesome looking/a very down to Earth pic of Jake at the Railroad Station in quiet deep thoughts. I do believe that some of Jake E. Lee's Classic Guitars (the Blue Charvel one, I think) are in a Japanese Museum for viewing and recently at the Hard Rock Cafe' in the USA in Lake Tahoe there's a real cool Sci-fi "spacey" Jake E. Lee Classic Guitar on display: how very wonderful & fascinating that is! :D

Looking at my list and even if the white Charvel is obviously everyone's darling, I should have included the "baby blue" Charvel and the crimson red with mirror pickguard Charvel:

Jake used them both very briefly but I think they should be included just for the hell of it.
