What we say:
Beginning in the 70s in the Sunshine state of California, Wayne Charvel began what became known as the Original Custom Shop. Starting out in his San Dimas workshop, he repaired guitars and sold high quality replacement parts. As his reputation grew this developed into full instruments beloved of high octane players, most famously a young Eddie Van Halen.
These days, Charvel’s home is with Fender and their speciality is still hot rodded, locking whammied Strats and Teles that harken back to the halcyon days of hair metal whilst keeping both feet firmly on the here and now.The Pro-Mod Style 1, made in Mexico, has an Alder body with a lovely Quilted Maple top. It features a bolt-on hard rock maple neck with a speed-freak friendly 12”-16” compound radius fretboard (it’s pretty flat to begin with and gets even flatter as it goes up to encourage ultra-fast playing) and jumbo frets. The body has some shred-friendly scoops in the back of the lower bout and heel to facilitate easy access to the upper frets. Even the input jack has been thought about and improved: it now faces up the way and is found on a bevel on the back: out of the way and the perfect angle to accept your jack cable after it’s slung behind your strap.
The hardware here is first class: a proper Floyd Rose locking tremolo, which is essential for pyrotechnic playing, and high quality Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups with a push/pull coil tap to ease out some slinkier tones amid the brutal sonic debauchery that these Charvels so ably provide.
A cool 'Chlorine Burst' finish provides the final part of the hard rock package: gunslingers, shred heroes and headbangers unite!
