Charvel make some awesome looking guitars with a real sense of rock and roll style. This model, part of the ever popular Pro Mod range, has a great range of finishes and comes with high gain pickups.
The metallic black finish has a great shine to it. Its bold yet subtle.
This axe sports a pair of hot-rodded high-output Seymour Duncan® JB™ humbucking pickups directly mounted to the body. They crank out high octane rock ‘n’ roll with plenty of sweet overtones. The volume control conceals a push/pull coil split to have even more tonal variations on tap while the No-Load tone control operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound, letting the full natural voice of the guitar shine through.
Solid, fast neck
The two-piece maple neck hosts 22 jumbo frets along with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for lightning fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts while the comfortably rolled fingerboard edges provide the broken-in feel of an instrument with plenty of playing miles on it, and plenty more to go.
