Here’s what Charvel say:
Angel Vivaldi’s otherworldly talent and unique and flamboyant style has earned him a reputation as one of the most celebrated and prolific instrumentalist guitarists in modern times. Charvel proudly collaborated with the New Jersey native to bring you the Angel Vivaldi Signature DK24-7 NOVA — a 7-string axe that packs as much extrinsic force as the man playing it.
A 7-string with class
Vivaldi’s signature axe delivers spectacular style with the Dinky basswood body finished in an exquisite Satin Sage Green with gold hardware and a reverse 7-string licensed Fender Stratocaster headstock.
The three-piece bolt-on maple neck—custom-shaped to Vivaldi’s preferences—has graphite reinforcement, sculpted heel, silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane back finish, Luminlay side dots and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel. Its 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets, cascading black dot inlays and Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut.
Unbelievably deep, full tones and rich harmonics come from an HH pickup configuration consisting of a DiMarzio Tone Zone bridge pickup and DiMarzio Air Norton neck pickup, both with gold bobbins.
Other premium modern features include a five-way blade pickup switch, dome-style knobs for the volume and tone controls, Gotoh Custom 7-string 510 tremolo bridge, locking tuners, and more.
