      Comments about Charvel SoCal SC1-2H Electric Guitar:

      My headline should be "Beter than expected and I expected a lot!" This guitar is awesome. I love playing it. The tones are awesome. Stays in tune. It is rock solid. The fit is great the finish is basic. If your ears and how a guitar feels is important, this guitar is a great choice. Tone wise this is right here with my Gibson Les Paul Standard and my custom shop Carvin California Carved Top. It feels better to play than my Musicman Steve Morse. In fact, I'm now thinking what I want to do with my Musicman since I prefer the Charvel.

      I've had this three months. I have zero complaints about it. I was concerned that it being made outside the USA would be an issue but I must say the quality is on par with my USA made guitars. Sure, Carvin's and Les Paul Standards are drop dead gorgeous and this guitar is plain. But when you factor in playability and tone only, this guitar can go head to head against anyone.

      Highly. Recommended.

          Comments about Charvel SoCal SC1-2H Electric Guitar:

          I owned every make of guitar, love most of them but this is the best made guitar out there today in my opinion. I do own American made Charvels and I love them too. I own a Japan telecaster Charvel and that is very well made. These are now Mexican and they are total quality. Most of all the neck is the nicest neck I have ever played. That is what first got me hooked on Charvels. Floyd Rose, quality, now Seymour Duncans, I like them a lot but did like the Dimarzio's in the American version but that said the Duncans sound great. Very amazing guitar!

          Comments about Charvel SoCal SC1-2H Electric Guitar:

          I have played lead for just 30 yrs now. I have several high end Ibanez's and Fender Strats, and a couple of late 80's Charvels. Always loved their necks.

          This new SoCal plays as good as guitars costing 3x as much. It rings like a bell. I played it for at least 30 minutes before hooking it into an amp. Sings for days. These Distortion PU's are the BEST set of humbuckers I have ever heard. BUY THIS GUITAR YOU WONT REGRET IT A BIT!!!

            Comments about Charvel SoCal SC1-2H Electric Guitar:

            I researched about a dozen or so guitars before I knew exactly what I wanted to blow my tax return on. This guitar had everything that I was looking for, in looks and features. Knowing that Charvel is owned by Fender, helped a lot in making up my mind, having played numerous Strats, and owning one. Once I received it in the mail, I pulled it out of the box and was immediately pleased with the fit and finish, playability, and the tone of the SD pickups. Quickly became my favorite guitar. The one and only complaint I have, is the location of the truss rod adjustment, being on the heel of the neck, which means I'll have to remove the neck to make any adjustments. Other than that, it's the perfect guitar for me.

            Comments about Charvel SoCal SC1-2H Electric Guitar:

            I own the previous version of the SoCal, so I compared them side by side for this review. First off the SoCal is a great VALUE in either version. Plays great, looks great and sounds great. Fit and finish are better than I expected with the change of manufacturing. The two most obvious changes you will see are the reccessed Floyd in the new version and the Seymour Duncans replacing the Dimarzio PUPS. While I prefer SD 99% of the time these SD's are as vanilla as you can get. The old versions PUPS were better IMHO. I will most likely upgrade the PUPS and do what Fender/Charvel Should do at the factory.....add a coil tap. If it came with the Hardshell case and better PUPS I'd give it 5-stars.
