Artist Models Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Caramelized Ash


As a preeminent modern virtuoso, U.K. guitar master Guthrie Govan dazzles all who hear his playing. Charvel spent two years of meticulous development with Govan to first introduce his Guthrie Govan signature model in 2014, and it’s the ultimate ultra-pro guitar. Loaded with special features and high-performance appointments, it's truly the ideal expression of Govan's artistry rendered in distinctive Charvel form. For 2017, Charvel is offering new incarnations of Govan’s signature model, including the Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Caramelized Ash. This 25.5” scale guitar offers a carmelized ash San Dimas body with a thin satin lacquer finish and a specially contoured heel (sans neck plate) for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. The bolt-on neck is two-piece flame maple with a "caramelized" heat and drying treatment that makes it sound and feel much older, with graphite reinforcement, hand-rubbed urethane gel on the back of the neck and a convenient truss rod adjustment wheel at the body end. Most unusually for a San Dimas model, the compound-radius (12"-16") flame-maple fingerboard spans two octaves, with the same caramelized treatment as the neck, 24 extra jumbo stainless steel frets and special maple dot inlays with ebony borders, as well as Luminlay side-dots that emit light for the darkest of stages. Other premium features include three specially wound Charvel custom MF pickups arranged in a versatile HSH configuration with five-way switching for the expansive tonal openness and dynamic sensitivity that Govan demands, a 2-way mini toggle switch to engage single coil simulation in bridge and neck humbucker position, two Luminlay numbered dome control knobs (master volume, master tone), control knobs (master volume, master tone), U.S.-made recessed Charvel locking tremolo bridge with Tremol-No™ unit and oversized brass block, bone nut and chrome hardware.

Artist Models Limited Edition Justin Aufdemkampe Signature Pro-Mod SD24


COMING OCTOBER 2018. Ohio quintet Miss May I stands at the pinnacle of modern U.S. metalcore, and Charvel® is proud to honor the formidably fast, aggressive and melodic fret work of guitarist Justin Aufdemkampe with the Limited Edition Justin Aufdemkampe Signature Pro-Mod SD24. Its classic San Dimas® body is fashioned from mahogany and is finished in sultry Trans Red with chrome hardware. The two-piece bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement, angled heel, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane finish, topped by a 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard with comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays.

Artist Models Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK


Laugh all you want while headbanging along to Steel Panther’s satirically swaggering take on Reagan-era Sunset Strip glam metal, but there’s just no arguing with the ferociously slamming chops of guitarist Russ “Satchel” Parrish. Simply put, nobody puts the 1987 into today like Parrish and his metalloid feline cohorts, and Charvel is excited to deliver a huge horns-up in the tiger-striped form of the Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK Yellow Bengal. The instrument has an alder Dinky™ body with sharper-radius top edges and a flamboyantly fluorescent Yellow Bengal finish. Of special note are the two Fishman® Fluence Classic humbucking pickups, which share a single volume control knob with special push/pull dual voice activation. Using this control, the PRF-CHB- NB1 neck pickup delivers ideal-but-elusive vintage PAF humbucking neck pickup tone with just the right dynamics and output (voice one), or a Fluence-exclusive neck tone with clear and airy chime, unreal high end, highly vocal midrange and tight lows (voice two). Similarly, the PRF-CHB-BB1 bridge pickup delivers ideal vintage PAF humbucking tone calibrated for perfect output (voice one), or quintessential hot-rodded humbucking bridge tone without all the baggage (voice two). You get the idea—it sounds %$#@& huge. The two-piece bolt-on maple neck has a Fender® Stratocaster® headstock with Charvel-branded die-cast tuners, graphite reinforcement and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, and a Charvel neck plate. Atop that is a compound-radius maple fingerboard (12"-16") with 22 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays. Other features include a three-way toggle pickup switch, top-loaded Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge, and more.
