    I wasn't trying to be funny, the answer is not as straight-foward as you might think. It really depends on what era Charvel you're talking about. Early pre-production Charvels were essentially "parts guitars" assembled by Wayne from Boogie Bodies, Schecther, Dimarzio, Mighty Mite bodies and necks.
    When Grover Jackson took over the compnay, Wayne Charvel had just started to make his own bodies and necks and Grover expanded that capability to full capacity.
    So, do you you see the problem? There is no "definitive" Charvel shape, but if you compare a Charvel body to a Strat body, you will see differences in the upper and lower horn shapes as well as the belly cut and the forearm cut.

    Get good straight-on pictures of a strat and a san dimas, and do an outline trace in photoshop or paint.net or whatever image software you use. Then overlay the traces and the differences will become obvious.
