Designed to inspire and with more than four decades of experience, the Charvel® Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSH FR M is a slick performer with modern features and versatile sound every guitarist will appreciate. Born from a love of high-speed playing and So-Cal style, this high-octane axe is packed with the classic playability and innovative design elements that have made Charvel a legendary name in high performance.
More comfortable than an overstuffed armchair, the So-Cal body is sleekly sculpted out of alder and coupled with a rock-solid bolt-on maple neck with a pair of graphite-reinforcement rods to handle the ravages of the road and climate. A conveniently located heel-mount 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 maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets is perfect for all styles of play – from low end riffing to soaring leads with worry-free upper-register bends.
This instrument hosts a high-output Seymour Duncan® Distortion™ TB-6 humbucking bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan Distortion SH-6N humbucking neck pickup. This powerful pickup trio produces aggressive harmonics in the bridge position for distinguished blues and metal runs, the perfect blend of heightened output and springy Stratocaster attitude in the middle and the ideal searing, crunchy tone for brazen leads in the neck.
Extensive tonal variations are on top with a five-way blade pickup switch, volume control and a no-load tone control that operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, and removes 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 double-locking tremolo bridge system allows players to scream and rumble without sacrificing tuning stability.
