Bitchin Charvel thread, let’s see them!!

Wed, Dec 04, 2019 6:33pm

I got this Charvel Custom on here from a member a while back, and I love this thing. It plays so nice, and so effortlessly, and sounds great. I have had a lot of Charvels and this one ranks with the best I have had, just a pleasure to play. Pretty thick and beefy tones, yet great definition and clarity. It came with a tone zone which I don’t mind. usually I would switch it out but the tone zone and evolution sound great in it, especially through my Friedman. I love this thing.

Let’s see your Charvels!!!

Dealer was not aware it was a Masterbuilt Cert fwiw. After I got it, I asked for the cert. It came in from Charvel as a Masterbuilt.
It's unreal. Has a bite in the tone I didn't hear from my other Custom Shops or USA's. All Koa body. Killer flamed neck that looks like a piece of marble.

It’s really cool. How heavy?


I had a Koa GMW... even had a Koa neck made by Mike Shannon. It sat in a hot garage in TX and the neck warped. The guitar sounded killer. Too bad.

Just picked this one up. MIM... Its pretty damn good! Although the Distortions were not really sound too good to me in it. The Bridge sound quite brittle on the top end. So a swapped a A2 mag for the ceramic and it smokes now! Also put a jazz in the neck!

How do they compare? I have been considering a Pro Mod snakeskin as a future purchase. I've got a few Pro Mods, and have been pretty happy with them.

How is that RTM pickup, btw?

I recently put the Pagan Gold So Cal back to the stock pickguard, but with a PAF Joe in the neck and Gravity Storm in the bridge.

It's hard to beat a great Charvel.

I love Les Pauls, traditional Strats and Telecasters too, but all these years later, I still find that my Charvels are the most fun to play.

2016 Music Zoo Nitro Aged Custom Shop... The first non-Les Paul that made me put my Les Pauls down. Dimarzio Transition neck, Mojotone Tomahawk (very underrated pickup) in bridge. CTS push/ pull to coil split neck. Lots of birdseye in the neck.

Actually the 2 guitars are a lot closer than the difference in price would make you think. The finish is remarkably similar on each. Maybe a drop more detail in the US model and I do like the matching headstock, but that’s more superficial than anything. The RTM pickup is the same in each. I like it. Kind of like a beefed up JB. Overall, you really can’t go wrong with the Pro Mod.

Re: Bitchin Charvel thread, let’s see them!!

Anyone tried a hardtail Charvel?
I have a floyd one, interested to hear about any tone or feel/string tension differences?

Thanks for the info! I've also been eyeing an Ibanez JIVA10, but I've heard the quality can be hit or miss, and what people are calling 'mahogany' is actually nyatoh. (And not worth the premium price being made of this wood as well as being built in Indonesia.)

I should be adding another pic soon: The Super Stock Model 2 I pre-ordered months ago just shipped.
