Designed to inspire and with more than three decades of experience, the Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR E is a slick performer with premium features and versatile sound every guitarist will appreciate. Born from a love of high-speed playing and smooth style, this fun-in-the-sun guitar is packed with the classic playability and innovative design elements that have made Charvel a legendary name in high-performance axes.
More comfortable than an overstuffed armchair, the So-Cal body is sleekly sculpted out of alder and paired with a rock-solid maple neck with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to handle the ravages of the road and climate. A conveniently located heel-mounted spoke wheel allows for rapid truss rod tweaks, even in between songs. Engineered for effortlessly nimble playing, the speed neck profile and 12”-16” compound radius aged ebony fingerboard are perfect for all styles of play — from low end riffing to soaring leads with worry-free upper-register bends.
Hot-rodded for unparalleled performance and versatile sound, this instrument hosts a high-output Seymour Duncan® Distortion humbucking bridge pickup and a warm, fat Seymour Duncan Distortion humbucking neck pickup. The volume control hides a push/pull coil split for even more highly useful tonal variations, ideal for everything from a biting lead sound to thick, chunky rhythm work. The No-Load tone control operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound, letting the full natural voice of the guitar shine through. The Floyd Rose® 1000 series recessed tremolo bridge system allows players to scream and rumble without sacrificing tuning stability.
Available in a stunning Rocket Red finish, the So-Cal Style 1 HH FR also features a black pickguard, black pickup bobbins and black hardware.
