What to Consider When Buying a Charvel Guitar

Pickups

In the kingdom of Charvel, Seymour Duncan reigns supreme in the land of pickups. Many models come with direct mounting, which means the pickups are placed directly on the wood of the body, which some players claim results in more resonance and sustain.

Neck

One of the original defining aspects of Charvel models was their unique neck shape and feel, a trait still found on today’s roster. Generally, Charvel necks are thinner with a hand-rubbed finish, making for faster work up and down the fretboard. Also, most models have rolled fingerboard edges that provide that provide the more comfortable feel of a well-played instrument.

Bridge

Looking to make those notes bend and cry? Then a Floyd rose tremolo/vibrato bridge is in order. These come standard-issue on most of Charvel’s modern lines like the So-Cal and San Dimas, while some specific models like the Jake E Lee Signature sports a Charvel Hardtail.
