The Charvel Pro Mod So Cal Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar in Metallic Black is a fast playing double-cutaway model that is perfect for those who like to play without limits. Put together in perfect fashion by the team at Charvel, the So-Cal infuses a chilled out Southern California vibe with a rock-solid stability that makes this a fantastic model for anyone from beginner to pro.
The Pro Mod So-Cal Style 1 is shaped to a deep double-cutaway profile with softly shaped curves that create a figure-hugging playing feel. Built using alder, the body is lightweight yet highly resonant, and doesn’t skimp on the tones. Thanks to its naturally vibrant responsiveness, the So-Cal is afforded a generous tonal palette to play with from chunky low-end through in-your-face mids to sizzling, crispy highs. The body has been treated to a metallic black paint job, which is protected by a coating of gloss polyester. Accompanying the body is a single-ply black pickguard.
Reinforced neck design
When you're out and about, changes in humidity and temperature can affect the neck in disastrous ways. Charvel go to great lengths to ensure the longevity of their necks, which is why the two-piece maple neck on the So-Cal is reinforced using graphite. Should the neck briefly go out of alignment, you can quickly correct it via the easy to reach heel-mounted spoke wheel truss rod adjustment.
The neck is shaped to Charvel's speed neck profile, which works beautifully with the maple fingerboard's compound radius and rolled fingerboard edges. The result is a played-in feel that creates a feeling of familiarity as if you've been playing this model your entire life. The hand-rubbed urethane finish allows you to seamless shift positions without unwanted stickiness or tackiness from holding you back.
Seymour Duncan pickup partnership
A high-performance design requires a high-powered engine, which is why the Charvel So-Cal Style 1 is equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan humbuckers. You'll find a TB-6 Distortion in the bridge that offers a high-output powerhouse to play with. In the neck there is the SH-6N that delivers a fat and meaty tone that is perfect for chunky riffage. The volume control is equipped with a pull/pull coil split to open even more tonal variations, whilst the no-load tone control allows you to cut the tone completely so that your guitar's natural tone can shine through unblemished. If your musical tastes lean more towards the heavier side of things, then you're going to fall in love with this setup.
If it's sweeping dive bombs and lofty wailing that you're after, you'll be please to find the Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking recessed tremolo and FRT-O2000 locking nut. The Floyd Rose system allows you to play around with your vibrato to your heart's content, safe in the knowledge that your strings will return to position with tuning intact. Knurled flat-top control knobs guarantee that when making adjustments on-the-fly, your fingers will achieve greater purchase on the knob for smooth attenuation. Whatever your level, everyone is bound to fall in love with the Charvel Pro Mod So Cal Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar in Metallic Black.
