Pure Shred Machine!
Great guitar, great price, and great service.
I've only had this guitar in my possession for 4 days, so longevity is to be determined. My 1st impression when I strummed the 1st chord, was it was pretty much in tune and the intonation was dead on, and there were no fret burrs or buzzing. ( And that says a lot, I purchased a guitar from another retailer costing 3x as much, and still had to spend $$ on a set up) This Charvel is a looker too. Flawless finish, gorgeous chrome hardware, The pictures do not do justice. And the Desolation sounds totally sick! The combination of tone woods, neck through construction and EMG 81 & 85 topped off with the Floyd......you gotta hear it to believe it. Sounds so good you will want to play for days. And with the fast, low action, you will be able to. The neck is super playable. WOW. Now the only beef I have is the guitar is a little on the light side. The body is a bit thin, I'd like it to be another inch thick or so and another 3 or 4 pounds heavier.
Sweetwater, most excellent service from the team, what else would one expect? Prompt shipping. Also the guitar was set up, and in tune. Opened box, and played. Classic Sweetwater treatment.
