An EMG Equipped Charvel!Looking for a guitar with a metal personality? The Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR is definitely your guitar. Nothing says metal more that a pair of EMG pickups. A mahogany body and neck give you great sustain and a punchy tone. The compound radius of the fretboard makes this guitar easy and comfortable to shred on. With huge tones, epic sustain, and a metal-inspired look, the Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR is the guitar you have been looking for.
Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR Electric Solidbody Guitar at a Glance:
High-performance neck design puts you in touch with your music
The neck design of the Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR features a compound radius fretboard, which is more rounded at the nut and flatter higher up the neck. This makes it easy to fret chords near the nut, while opening up the fretboard for soloing. The flatter higher frets also let you keep your action low, without bottoming out when you bend notes. And thanks to its neck-through-body design, the Desolation DX-1 FR also gives you epic sustain.
Classic double-cutaway design
The instantly recognizable double-cutaway design of the Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR guitar screams rock 'n' roll. This is one of the most classic guitar shapes of all time. Mahogany tonewoods give you a powerful tone with long sustain. The deep cutaways give you access to every inch of the rosewood freeboard.
A tried-and-true set of EMG active humbuckers
The Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR features a time-tested pair of active EMG pickups. When it comes to modern rock and cutting edge metals, you just can't beat the sound of EMG's EMG 81 and EMG 85 humbuckers. This combination gives you the deep, thunderous lows and brilliant highs you need to stand out in the mix. You can hold down the rhythm with thick, chunky riffs, and then slip into high gear and tear into a solo.
