Charvel have built a strong association with the heavier side of guitar music, with artists such as Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads and Richie Sambora among their list of players. Now hitting 2018 with a fresh batch of raucous instruments released at NAMM, Rich Tone Music take a look at some of the highlights.
Guaranteed to stand out from the crowd, this outrageous guitar comes endorsed by none other than Steel Panther’s Satchel. Featuring a 2-piece maple speed neck, genuine Floyd Rose double locking tremolo and Fishman Fluence pickups. All-black hardware gives this guitar a heavy metal edge. In Satchel’s trademark tiger stripe Yellow Bengal finish, this guitar screams with glam tone and mojo.
Although somewhat more understated that other models in this year’s range, there’s no doubting this monster’s performance. An innovative Okoume body combines with a two-piece graphite reinforced maple neck to provide a solid platform. The compound radius fretboard and jumbo frets make for a neck which is easy to play, letting you take your solos to the next level. Make no mistake on the tone – 2 Seymour Duncan Humbuckers allow for high output shredding. And with it’s natural finish, this guitar hasn’t slipped by our radar!
A slick and versatile guitar which will be loved by all types of players. This fun guitar is built for high-speed playing and smooth style,and is packed with great design features. From the maple speed neck and ebony fingerboard, to the recessed genuine Floyd Rose bridge this instrument will make playing a dream. Whether its low end riffing or sizzling lead lines, the Charvel Pro Mod So-Cal just works. The black pickguard and hardware are set off by the vibrant Rocket Red finish on this model, giving a rocking twist on a classic look.
At Rich Tone we have a penchant for all things purple, and here is no exception! The swirling quilted maple top shimmers as your eyes are drawn to the chrome bridge and gleaming maple neck. And this guitar will make your playing dazzle as well, thanks to its precision build quality and feature-laden specification. Seymour Duncan humbuckers, genuine Floyd Rose bridge and innovative truss rod all cement this guitar as a standout among the Charvel range.
We can’t help but enjoy the colour scheme on this brazen Charvel. A glossy Snow White body set off with glitzy gold hardware, this guitar is just as capable as it looks. It features the Seymour Duncan Full shred pickup at the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Jazz pickup at the neck, meaning heavy riffs, squealing solos and crispy clean tones are all a breeze for the Pro-Mod DK24. Charvel’s truss rod adjustment system allows for quick and easy changes to tighten up, even between songs! Get your hands on this glam masterpiece while you can!
