Charvel Does It Again!
By: The Drone from Central PA
Your general opinion of this product.
Charvel never ceases to impress me. For a company bought and sold a few times, they have maintained above average quality and feature-rich guitars at each price point. This guitar is no exception. All Good!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I have to admit being hesitant to buy a Made In China guitar for anything other than a beater. I am well over it, at least when it comes to Charvels. This was bought as a dent n scratch. No dents and no scratches. Just a broken E string. The quality is well beyond the retail price. Getting one at a substantial discount is almost like stealing.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Seymour Duncan Blackouts sunk into a mahogany body..... Devine! I like EMG's just fine but, Blackouts eat them alive.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I love the flat black paint and the (nearly) unfinished neck. Not a fan of abalone inlays but it is tastefully done on this model.
