"Crushing Guitar just like Gojira"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I love this guitar, have no complaints at all. It stays in tune perfectly and the neck feels amazing. For some Duncan Design pickups they sound really good I wouldn't even consider switching them out. Everything feels solid on this guitar. I love this guitar so much couldn't be happier with this purchase.

"What a Cool Sound!"

I am thoroughly impressed. I got this guitar as a blemished product and the blemish that qualified it for that category is so miniscule as to be virtually unnoticeable. As for the guitar itself, I am delighted to have such a unique sound. Charvel's choice of pickups here is great. I figured a lot of Gojira's sound came from the production and effects but just plugging this directly into my Boss Katana MKII amp with Brown distortion, it gets you about 90% of the way there. And it's not like I'm trying to sound exactly like Gojira - I just wanted a tele-style guitar good for playing metal - but there's just an nuanced sound to the string attack that really stands out and I love it. Well, now I have it! And to get it for such a good price. I don't know why this guitar doesn't show up in the Charvel section of this site. You have to actually search for Charvel to find it on here. It easily undercuts their other prices and, in my opinion, doesn't sacrifice almost any features. I love the pickups, the nearly indestructible finish on the body, the oil-finished neck, the contours, and the locking tuners. It all feels so top notch. I'm officially a Charvel fan. There's a thing that may turn people off but is a big plus for me. All the knobs are cut out for this one in place of a single volume control and 3-way switch. I have problems with some guitars placing these right where my hand will hit them. Joe Duplantier apparently asked for it to be moved down near the input jack and it's totally out of the way for the intense playing that I prefer. That could be a problem for people that like to dial in a nuanced sound with the guitar's built-in dials, but for me, it's a huge plus. One final note, the guitar arrived excellent set up. I only had to lower the action on the base side of the bridge by a small amount, but it was so small a difference that it could amount to personal preference more than a bad setup.
