Built for Smooth Yet Aggressive PerformanceGet the Charvel Desolation DS-1 FR single-cutaway electric guitar in your hands, and you'll be amazed at how value-packed this tone monster is. Charvel's Desolation Series is made for aggressive tone and effortless playability, and the DS-1 FR delivers. There's no secret to the mojo - you get a mahogany body for incredible sustain and richness, a mahogany neck with through-body construction for even more sustain, and a pair of Seymour Duncan AHB-1 active humbucking pickups for tonal prowess with sonic flexibility. And you'll love how fluidly the DS-1 FR plays, thanks to the rosewood fretboard's compound radius and the ultra-expressive Floyd Rose tremolo. You've got a hot-looking, fast-playing guitar with attitude with the Charvel Desolation DS-1 FR single-cutaway electric guitar.
Charvel Desolation DS-1 FR single-cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Smart design gives you awesome sustain and tone
Charvel chose mahogany for the body and neck of the Desolation DS-1 FR for its rich, harmonic tone and exceptional sustain. Speaking of sustain, you'll get tons of it from the DS-1 FR - not just because of all that mahogany, but also due to the neck-through-body design. The DS-1 FR's neck runs the full length of the body, enhancing the transfer of vibration to give you more sustain and a fuller tone. Plug into an overdriven tube amp, and you'll have sustain for days.
Ready for fast fretwork
Whether you play smooth rhythms or furious leads, you'll love the feel of the Desolation DS-1 FR's compound radius fretboard. With a 12" radius at the nut, flattening to 16" at the 12th fret, you've got the "just right" feel you need to grab chords in the lower positions, while the flatter upper registers allow blazing fast fretwork.
Tonal prowess from EMG humbuckers
Guitarists have turned to Seymour Duncan pickups for aggressive tone that retains excellent note definition. You get Seymour Duncan AHB-1 active humbucking pickups in the Desolation DS-1 FR, ready to sound as clean or as mean as your style calls for. They're perfect for heavy metal, thrash, punk, or virtually any aggressive style of music.
