Comments about Charvel Desolation DST1-FR Star Electric Guitar:

Got the guitar and I was surprised at 1st it was made in China. But the quility surpassed what I expected from China. Pretty good quility and craftmenship. Once the guitar was set up (neck, intonenation, ect.) this thing shred!! Love it! Black and chrome, Metal. I'll replace the 81 bridge P-U w/ a Seymore Duncan Blackout. Nothing wrong w/ the 81, I just prefere the Blackout sound instead. Great guitar for the right price. Floyd stays in tune, one volume, 3 way. Worth the money!! 80's style, modern feel, great.
