Smart design gives you awesome sustain and tone

Charvel chose mahogany for the body and neck of the Desolation DC-1 ST for its rich, harmonic tone and exceptional sustain. Speaking of sustain, you'll get tons of it from the DC-1 ST - not just because of all that mahogany, but also due to the neck-through-body design. The DC-1 ST'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 DC-1 ST'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

Hard rockers and aggressive players have turned to EMG active pickups for their amazing tone, exceptional dynamic response, and reliable performance. You get EMG 81 and EMG 85 pickups in the Desolation DC-1 ST, ready to sound as clean or as mean as your style calls for.
