Fans have long clamored for a replica of Warren DeMartini’s famed and beloved “Frenchie” guitar, as seen live on tour and on a slew of magazine covers throughout Ratt’s reign in the 1980s. Charvel has responded with the Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie, available in a Snow White or a Gloss Black finish. Both are detailed with cross decals and a tribute quote to James Dean in French that translates “too fast to live, too young to die.”

  • Overview

    The Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie offers premium features including a Dinky™ alder body, bolt-on quartersawn maple neck and 12"- 16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo stainless steel frets and black dot inlays.

    Custom-made for the legendary lead guitarist, the Seymour Duncan® Warren DeMartini RTM (“Rattus Tonus Maximus”) bridge pickup is a powerful high-output humbucker that naturally compresses for a well-balanced and even tone, perfect for complex chording and precision soloing. The RTM is boosted by an SSL-4 Quarter Pound neck pickup, adding fat, supercharged punch and extra sustain.

    The Frenchie also comes equipped with a single volume control knob, three-way toggle switching, Floyd Rose Original locking bridge and Gotoh® tuning machines. A hardshell case is also included.
