"Outstanding guitar"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
fit and finish is flawless, color choices are great (i got specific ocean which is like a metal flaked surf green), features are plenty (the floyd 1000 works perfectly and the tuners seem fine), play-ability is top notch (amazing smooth necks on these), sounds are incredible (the coil splits and 59/jb are a great combo on this guitar and i can't see upgrading them, and i typically run pearly gates and emg's in my guitars). can't go wrong with these guitars if you're in the market for a high end super strat. i'm not a shredder...i'm more blues rock and jam-oriented and this guitar suits me perfectly...ignore the stereotypes! on the quality-side, the fender ensenada factory build amazing instruments for the price tag and honestly this charvel puts my old fender classic series 72 thinline to shame (same factory and the 72 is built great, but charvel is in a different league). they should come with a case and the action was a touch high for me (not a fault of zZounds or charvel as i prefer very low action), but that's honestly the only downside. highly rec'd from a long-time player and actively gigging musician and gear nerd.

"Nice Guitar, Nice Price!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
First off I chose the Black one with the trans top, It looks great. I was excited and nervous at the same time. I have a lot of Fender Strats, and wanted something, hotter and definitely built to shred. This guitar does not disappoint. Out of the box it was pretty much in tune. The setup was first rate, low action, no buzz and the Floyd was Level with the body. I played the guitar for about 45 minutes unplugged to hear and feel its resonance. I liked what I was hearing and feeling. The guitar is gorgeous and the neck is really the star of the show. Not too thin and very slick, it appears to have a minimal finish (satin maybe). It just feels right. The fit and finish on this guitar are amazing, I have many USA Guitars and this guitar is really on that level of craftsmanship. Now lets plug this thing in, I played the clean channel on my Hughes and Kettner Matrix, and it sounded very nice great body of tone with crisp highs and even low sounds. The pickups respond well to volume adjustment to lower the gain or even clean (usable) for you guys that just run wide open and used the volume to control your rig. I liked the coil tap, you can get stratty tones that you get from a single coil. There are a lot of tonal variations to be had, if you have to chose only one guitar to get you through a gig, this guitar covers a lot of sonic territory. This guitar is not just for metal or hard rock. It is a serious, versatile instrument! I bought this one to see how Charvel was building super strats and I am already planning to buy another. I took advantage of the payment plan, you can too... get it today and play on. CJWII

"Surprising bang for your buck!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I got a great deal on a blemish, but the blemish isn't a big deal at all (I think it looks BA, actually). It just had the typical shaded coloration a maple fretboard gets with frequent use. The sound is fantastic! I love the versatility of the coil splitting, and the action/intonation was near-perfect out of the box! I just had to tighten the springs a touch to get the trem level and retune...that's it! The simplicity of the design and the plain white is surprisingly elegant for a shred machine.This guitar covers most of the bases. I'm able to get killer shred tones, but can instantly achieve the pretty tones in a worship setting.Charvel made themselves a fan, and zZounds has once again made it easy for me to get siiiiick gear! Thanks, boys and girls at zZounds!!

"Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas SD1 HH FR"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have been wanting one of these for a long while now, and I finally have my precious in Neon Pink. The color is fantastic, the perfect shade of neon pink, and the pics do not do this guitar justice, you have to see it in person.My guitar came shipped to me in two days, and upon opening the box and inspecting the guitar, there were no flaws at all. IT. WAS. PERFECT! The fret ends were perfect, the action was spot on and there was zero truss rod adjustments needed. There were no buzzes or anything weird, and it even came in at a rather svelte 8lbs 2oz, which is perfect considering the Floyd Rose is a big chunk of metal. The guitar is extremely resonant, and sound projects very loudly when played unplugged. The feel with the jumbo frets is amazing and the body and neck are so lively that you can feel tons of vibrations throughout it no matter where you place your hands.The sound is exceptional, and I like the no load tone pot for that added note clarity which make me appreciate the Seymour Duncan 59/JB combo set. It was a very pleasant surprise hearing how good these pickups sound when you split the coils. All in all, I can't really add to what others have been saying, but I love my Charvel and I am so glad that I finally made my purchase.

"Charvel NEEDS better QC"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased the black burst sand dimas around 2 weeks ago, when the guitar got here the paint was cracked and checking. I asked zZounds to exchange it for another one and when the replacement guitar got here, the same issue was present. 2 charvel have had the same exact poor QC. That is not quality and certainly is not worth $900. I would stay away from Charvel guitars until they fix this issue. I wont be purchasing anymore charvel instruments.
