    I know. GMW logo'd stratheads are fairly rare, GMW Charvel clones really aren't.

      I always thought it was odd people didn't want the GMW logo - it's a decent logo, works on a strathead and unless you're trying to fake something, I don't see the 'need' for the Charvel logo even on a rock replica..
      Popular is not the same as good
      Rare is not the same as valuable
      Worth is what someone will pay, not what you want to get

        Yeah, I didn't get it either. I'd much rather have a GMW logo'd strathead. I think it looks great.

          It was less about people not wanting the GMW logo, and more about them wanting what was unattainable at the time - a custom Charvel strathead, or at least a replica of one.

He was offered a bunch of BCRich 2nds by Bernie (depending on who's version of the story the # varies, but it was a triple digit #). All blanks that for some reason were tossed in a storage due to build issues. Neal was BCRs shop foreman, setup man and responsible for a lot of what BCR was, so Lee & Neal partnered to bring those blanks back to life.
            Back in the early 90's Lee also had some Jackson cores, I remember seeing some soloist, and even some Schon cores.
            Wilkins did the paint and clear, early on, and at some point Lee and Pat parted ways. Dan did the graphics, and had his booth in the shop. Not sure where they did the clearcoats. Warmoth did the necks and some bodies from the late 80's to mid 90's. There were some subcontractors that did some stuff for them I did the Namm shows with them from 89-95. Fun times
