In Stock!

Aggressive Tones, Custom Looks

Charvel's Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR electric guitar harkens back to the Superstrat movement of the 1980s. A pedigreed shredder, this axe epitomizes the Southern California look and sound with its hot-rodded Seymour Duncan pickups, familiar body style, and silky compound-radius fingerboard with rolled edges. The So-Cal boasts a real Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo that can handle the gnarliest of dive-bombs without wrecking your tuning. If you're in the market for a stock guitar that oozes with punk, hardcore, and metal vibe, Sweetwater guitarists are quick to recommend the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR.

Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Plays like a custom Superstrat
  • Inspired by 30 years of customer requests
  • Floyd Rose locking tremolo adds texture to chords and leads
Plays like a custom Superstrat

The Superstrat craze of the 1980s inspired guitarists all over the country to Frankenstein their beloved axes with faster necks, hotter pickups, aftermarket hardware, and bold custom paint jobs. The Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR carries on this tradition with vintage-styled appointments and clean modern electronics for high-gain attitude and authoritative looks.

Inspired by 30 years of customer requests

Charvel was one of the first guitar companies to manufacture Superstrat-type guitars. And with 30 years of customer feedback, Charvel was able to make the So-Cal play and sound like a pawn shopper's dream. The stock split-coil Seymour Duncan Distortion pickups deliver a total of 6 humbucker/single-coil tones for brutal crunch to scorching leads.

Floyd Rose locking tremolo adds texture to chords and leads

A dependable tremolo is requisite to the Superstrat appeal. The So-Cal's Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 moves between subtle vibrato and dive-bombed Eddie leads with the natural response and tuning stability you expect from a Floyd Rose.

Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar Features:
  • Familiar alder body gives an unmistakable California sound
  • Compound-radius maple speed neck (12"-16") gets flatter and wider up high - great for soloing
  • Maple fretboard has comfortable rolled edges
  • Seymour Duncan TB-6 and SH6N Distortion pickups deliver hot-rodded tones
  • 6-way pickup switching for brutal humbucker and juicy single-coil tones
  • Push-pull coil tap unlocks sweet California twang
  • No-load tone pot won't color sound when run wide open
  • Knurled speed knobs resist sweat slippage
  • Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo squeals and dives without wrecking your tuning
  • Die-cast matching tuning machines
Turn heads onstage with the Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR!

Best guitar I have ever heard or played.

Ive been very blessed in my time to own amazing Guitars. From us Jackson's and Gibson's to all sort's in between. Nothing can touch this charvel period. The range of tones is just incredible. But I never thought a Guitar with a floyd rose Could have this much sustain. You would think it was a Neck thru guitar and not A bolt on. The note articulation on This thing is amazing. My other guitars are more for looking at these day's as this guitar Continues to impress me more and more. Just incredible. I know Its made in mexico and that scared me a little at first too. But hands down best sounding best performing guitar I have Ever played in my thirty year's of guitar playing. Dont think twice get it.

Charvel Pro Mod So-Cal

I've had this for a couple of days and I'm really digging this So-Cal. The neck isn't too chunky for my hands. It feels a lot like my Les Paul. And as always Sweetwater's staff is great to work with. Kudos to my Sales Engineer, Rob for effortless transactions.

I highly recommend this guitar

Received my Charvel So Cal a few days ago. I bought a Jackson Soloist a year ago and I love it, but I think I like this one even more. From the super -tones it produces, especially if you are into Hard-Rock/ Heavy Metal, to the amazing feel of the neck, I couldnt find anything I didn't like about it. You will love it too.

Back to the 80's!!

First off, Visually this guitar is stunning! I love the whole 80's retro vibe. The guitar plays like a dream on top of it's visual appeal. Playing the guitar is like putting on a pair of comfortable and worn in gloves, it just feels right and the time just peels away. I would and have recommended this guitar to friends and people asking advice on which guitar should they buy. You cannot go wrong with this bad boy! Of course as always I recommend buying from You want the best, then buy from the BEST!! Of course I have the best Sales Engineer @ Sweetwater, Aaron Smith. So I am a little biased towards Sweetwater! Thanks for taking the time to read my review and I will see YOU in the future! \m/
