Charvel has taken the highly distinctive Charvel Surfcaster of the early 1990s and modernized it in the Charvel Desolation Skatecaster SK1ST Guitar With Stop Tail. It has a solid mahogany body and neck-through design with a bound mahogany neck. The Desolation Skatecaster SK1ST has a compound radius (12-16 inches) rosewood fingerboard with 24 jumbo frets and abalone "keystone" inlays, abalone body and headstock binding, EMG 85 (neck) and 81 (bridge) active humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching, single control knob (volume). The SK1ST has the Charvel bridge that is specially designed for compound radius fingerboards, it also has black nickel hardware, three on a side locking Charvel tuners and a solid or transparent finish with a matching headstock.
Magnificent Desolation. The Charvel Desolation series introduces entirely new designs not previously seen in Charvel's 30-year history, offering more tonal and stylistic options for discerning players everywhere.
