    My new favorite ax

    This is the 6th Charvel I have owned since the mid 1980's and it is my new favorite ax. This guitar is a monster! Love the radius neck. The pickups are monsters!! My Sweetwater Rep, Derek Senestraro was so helpful (as always) and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The pics don't do it justice. Beautiful guitar. It was set up perfectly out of the box. Solid construction, great feel, amazing tone. I have played guitar since I was a kid (for over 40 years), and am tickled pink with this guitar. It is a rock n roll street machine!!

    Just incredible

    These guitars really are just that good. I've owned and played a ton of guitars and this plays, feels and sounds just as good as some custom shop guitars costing 3x its price. It gets everything from nice chimey strat sounds to big thick chunky rhythms. It makes me wonder why the Seymour Duncan Distortion set isn't stock in more guitars.

    My Sweetwater rep was very helpful. I purchased a re stock to save a few bucks and he was kind enough to personally check it out for me. Looked brand new to him and sure enough I couldn't tell it was a restock when it showed up. Plays incredible and sounds incredible and it shipped to me in 1 day. Sweetwater does a great job and they've earned their fantastic reputation among musicians.

    On This Guitar, Everything Just Right

    I've owned my Charvel So-Cal Style 1 HH for about a month now. I'm super impressed with this guitar. It's solid. Build quality is outstanding. Charvel is doing it right.

    Special mention needs to be made about the neck on this guitar. It's compound radius, has neatly and cleanly installed jumbo frets, and an oil finish. This neck feels great -- the more I play it the more I like it.

    I've surprised myself by not modding this guitar. I'm super picky usually, but this guitar is just right, as is.

    Thanks to my Sweetwater sales dude for his help, and thanks also to whomever set up the guitar before shipment. You are not just getting a guitar in a box, drop shipped from the manufacturer. Sweetwater actualy checks and sets up the dang guitar! This is much appreciated

    This guitar rocks!!

    I`m very happy with this Charvel, pickups sound superb; tremolo is smooth and stays in tune no matter how many dive bombs I do. I got to say that this is the nicest necks I`ve ever tried!! Period and I have a Washburn N4 and a Les Paul to compare... Not too thin not too fat and not too wide is just perfect! The paint job and fret work is also spot on. The only downside is the volume knob and the three way switch those are located in a very inconvenient spot. The volume knob is too close to the strings and no matter how I adjust my playing I keep hitting it with my hand all the time and tuning the volume down, is very annoying. Three way switch is just hard to reach and right between the tremolo arm and volume knob. Anyway I will relocate them using a custom pick guard so itís not a big deal. If you are planning to purchase this guitar wait no more go ahead don`t listen to the so call experts cause is made in Mexico, the quality is there!!!

    Thanks Sweetwater and my sales engineer Bob Mondok for the fast shipping and great service.
