I had been looking for a new guitar for several months. I’ve always been a big Charvel fan so I decided to look at their different models. This particular model stuck out the most. The guitar has a beautiful finish and just looks stunning. I just bought a blackstar combo amp and the Charvel sounds killer. The EMG pickups are hot especially the bridge. The neck has a great feel; not too wide, not too slim, just perfect. Needless to say, this is a rock n roll machine.
I play a wide variety of rock, blues, and some country. The guitar sounds great through my Blackstar amp and takes pedals really well. It really doesn’t need an overdrive pedal at all.
I can’t really complain about the features. The bright spot is the pickups: dang they sound so good and seem like a perfect combination with guitar.
Ease of Use
It’s very playable and comfortable. It compliments my rock style a lot. The neck is absolutely gorgeous too
Looks like they paid attention to detail when building this one. The workman ship appears top notch.
Price point isn’t bad especially with inflation kicking out a$$. I wish nice guitars came with a hard shell case tho. Back in the day, all nice axes came with cases but that’s the only complaint really.
I’ve used Charvels for years. My first one was a 750XL. This one plays right up there with the 750. I have no complaints
The Wow Factor
It’s very appealing to the eye. Very gorgeous guitar.
Mainly classic and hard rock. I’ve been playin for over 30 years and owned many nice guitars and this one adds to the list.
