i guess your closest call would be an alder body + an JB humbucker(SH-4)
from Seymour Duncan :)

Get a G&L Legacy Deluxe!

Killer guitar -

My Legacy Deluxe Kicks

Take a look, it has an TB-4 (Seymour JB Humbucker / SH-4) which is wider do to the string spacing of the tremelo...

no, actually it doesn't.
the holdsworth prototype which Jake used(by Duncan) had
too much output for mr Holdsworth himself so he wen't for something
with less output too suit his smooth legato playing.

Interesting, so it's a model guitar this "Sandimas/Charvel" at first glance I was thinking of Christmas. Interesting thread..-so Charvel has a guitar model called Sandimas and of course I heard of the name Holdworths guitars before. Peace.

Couple of random San Dimas facts:

1) San Dimas is in "The Valley". :)

2) San Dimas is where "Bill and Ted" were from. :D

3) San Dimas (the place) is not all that special. :)

Sorry, maybe it's just me, but every time I read about that particular guitar, I instantly think of the town of San Dimas. :)

I know a lot of you guys are Charvel/Jackson/Wayne experts. Does anyone know why they named that guitar after such a non-descript town?

ok - here is my theory, they buy their parts from warmoth and mark it up 250%

and you think , wow, I have a cool guitar...

If you are spending that much, go to warmoth, buy the parts and have a luthier throw it together...

then with the money you saved, put a down payment on a nice tube amp, say a VHT Deliverance?

DOH 8O

Or better yet get a Gibson SG JR for under a grand -

San dimas was where the PO Box was for charvel/jackson.The guitars werent even built in saN dimas, it was a town next to it.The reason they are named san dimas is that is the address on the neck plates uesed through out the 82-86 american made charvels and jacksons before they moved to Onterio california.

Those guitars have a magic that cannot be denied.Just ask anyone who has owned one from that era.Jackons havent been the same since.

Oh yeah, and dean solo

SAN DIMAS HIGH FOOTBALL RULES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
