Comments about Charvel Desolation SK-3 ST Skatecaster Electric Guitar:
My first Charvel and I could not be happier. I bought this as a recommendation from my brother, and was leery given the limited views on this site. I am so glad that I got this guitar. It is a sleeker and smaller body than what I thought, and visually over the top. The top looks great, the back is contoured and pretty, the neck is a darker brown mahogany, and the rosewood inlay fret board is fantastic. Picture on this site just does not do this gem justice.
As to how it plays. This Skatecaster has a great snap, a real growl when on overdrive, and clear cleans. The volume knob is responsive and I love the simple volume/switch set up is a great touch and encourages me to dive in and play.
The one this to call out was that I had to spend some time dialing in the setup, swapping the strings, and finding the great tone that a mahogany/and rosewood neck can produce. This was expected given the price point, and really was playable out of the box but I play hard like all guitars I touch are acoustic dreadnaughts. So Glad I own it.
