do they do that on 6 string too?
You'll poke yer eye out with that....
I believe so, but I could be wrong.
the stock just looks like they ran out of time and just
came up with something to hold the machines.
I know looks isn't everything and is often not even thought of with
the crap I but damn, that's a lot of coin going new ya know.
Thank you for that. I ask because I'm a sucker for super strats and I can't get hands on a charvel. I just wondered how they were compared to the EVH which I really liked. Thanks again.
My next axe will be a Charvel. They just look like they could shred for days. Dammit!!! Now I really want one! This sickness known as GAS has a cure right?
Man, you'd think the beautiful B.C. Rich you just got would hold you over for a little longer. You must have GAS really bad. Don't know if there's a permanent cure or if you want to be cured I know. I now have 2 Charvels at home to play. Charvel Anonymous anyone?
Trust me, I would much prefer to sleep inside the house. My wife would kill me if I even said the word guitar. I'm really content hopefully for the next couple years, hopefully.
I never found a cure. I just stopped looking after a while.
funny thing is, over all, Charvel hasn't changed all that much.
they have ALWAYS been great guitars.
If my wife kicked me out for a Charvel it would be worth it. I would just move my stack into the camper out back and have a alcohol and rock n roll fueled retreat.
Personally I can't stand that headstock either. I have to have 6 in line. The split with three on each side is infuriating even if it is a headstock that looks nice. In my opinion the Gibson Flying V have a nice looking headstock even though it isn't what i like for functionality.
If this turns into a thread of a bunch of guitar porn I can only count that as a win.
ya aint doing it right bro.
I have an EVH B&W striped series (which is for sale in classifieds right now!) and I have played the B&Y and the Circles model, and I'd have to say my Pro-Mod is every bit as good as, if not even better than, the EVH models...and the EVH is a fantastic guitar!
Ok, cool! If you don't mind, then I'll post 'em up!
Oh yeah! I'd like to try that bad boy out... Been thinking about a nice 7 string! I'd tune it so low only dogs could hear my mad crazy chunky riffs! HA!
I like the guitar and they play well.
it just seems they ran out of imagination at the last
second ya know.
Cool cool, thank you for the info. If I could I'd take that one off of you but right now is not the time. See enough of my posts and you'll see that I plan years ahead on my gear purchases. It takes me that long to get the money together.
Yeah I think it's the rolled fretboard edges, and the oiled neck for me, I've never found a painted neck that I liked. I'm going to be keeping my eyes open for a whammy guitar now, we are adding some songs to the list that could use some of that action, I'm hoping to find a good used deal on another Charvel. I'll get another desolation, maybe the soloist model or the single cut. Unless I find a mexi model for a good price
Now back to the Charvel Pro Mod. Finally did the acid test on my Snow White the other night when I took her to band rehearsal and plugged into a cranked Marshall the first time.
Plays well and has 22 frets. The neck is a little fatter than my Jake E Lee Charvel. No problem, I like it for some songs. She's also heavier than the Lee.
Gutsy voice with plenty of sustain. (Still has factory strings.)
No noticeable or weird hums or pops at full volume.
Split coil works well. I mostly use it in the neck position.
I like positive feel of the metal knurled volume and tone knobs.
3 way switch has a dead spot between position 1 and 2 and 2 and 3. Not a problem if you use one setting in a song but I will use different settings during some songs so you need to make sure the switch goes fully into position or you get silence.
Finish on the maple fretboard seems to be wearing off after several hours of hard playing. I'll know better what's going on when I change the strings and clean the neck. I have a 17y.o. MIM Start with a maple neck that shows less wear.
She's definitely a keeper and a good addition to the herd. It's going to be tough deciding which one to play as I'm having too much fun and don't want to put her away.
