Who the flying F bomb buys from these morons? I'd like a court order in place so they cannot use "holy grail" in every description they write for their overpriced crap.

"The markings on the heel are seen on USA marked Kramers "generally"."

You can still see the "made in Japan" on the back of the neck. :bong

I recently acquired a USA Charvel body, so I was looking for USA Charvel neck plates. “AXN” had a USA neck plate for $699.99 and $30 shipping. Then they were selling the bolts separate for $119 and $20 shipping. Then they had the black plastic neck plate bumper for $90 and $20 shipping. I was like wow, $1000 Total for a neck plate.

Was it an original San Dimas plate 5492 or below? I used to have a few laying around LOL... they can fetch $200-$350. Some of them were made of a poor alloy and were replaced, and some folks just put a pre-pro plain brass plate.

Funny you probably could get a 5-digit Strat L plate for cheaper!

One of the newer 2008 San Dimas USA bodies. When Charvel first introduced the Pro Mods they were made in the USA and came with a case for basically the same price as the new MIM pro mods. To be honest though I have a MIM San Dimas that plays / sounds just as nice.
