NAMM 2019: Charvel’s High-Performance Guitar Designs

Posted on 24th January 2019 by

With their fantastic designs and premium features, Charvel has been inspiring guitarists everywhere for over three decades. Consequently, when the company releases a new product range the whole industry sits up to take notice. And at this year’s NAMM convention, they’ve just released a new batch of exciting guitars. So, here we are, bolt upright, taking stock of a couple of their standout performers.

Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 – Snow White

The Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 is a slick and eager performer. Born from a desire to offer a rapid playing experience, it features a rock-solid two-piece, speed profile maple neck that’s engineered for effortless playing. Plus, its 12-16” compound radius, maple fingerboard holds 22, easy to play jumbo frets, while the heel-mount truss rod lets you quickly tweak the neck in any situation.

Equally, the electronics aren’t half bad, either. Featuring a set of high-output Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups, the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 cranks out high octane rock ‘n’ roll sounds with loads of sweet overtones. And, the volume control harbours a push/pull coil split for an even wider variety of tonal options.
