A few weeks ago I called out to Drum City Guitarland and spoke with Jason. He said they're still in the works but if you add yourself to his e-mail list he'll keep you posted.
Apparently Charvel are working on getting the specs down so the replicas can be as authentic as possible, like the Warren DiMartini reissues.
From what Jason told me there will be 3 models to choose from , white with black pickguard, purple burst and blue burst. Sale price is projected to be around $2600 or more, so save your pennies.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, Jason knows that the screw counters will be out in full force on these and he wants them to be spot on if possible. These are known as the bark at the moon and ultimate sin models, as Jake won't have anything to do with them from what I hear.Jackson/charvel tried and Jake passed.

For that price I could get 2.5 of these:

No but seriously, are these the ones with Gibson-frets on a Fender neck
or replicas of the Blue/purple burst Charvels ?

You could put one together thru warmoth and get a pro setup for about a grand!

Many manufacturers use their parts!
