Comments about Charvel Desolation Skatecaster SK-1 FR Electric Guitar:
This is the first new guitar that I have bought that needed nothing but tuning when taken out of the box. The setup on it was great and intonation was good to go as well. It got delivered before my lunch break today and I live 5 minutes from work. It was very hard to put it down and head back to work. It has the most awesome neck I have ever played on. I have looked it over and the quality is real good but I did find a little spot but nothing to cry over. The EMG pickups sound good. I hope they continue this series but maybe puts some Seymour Duncan's in them. I'd definitely want one. I have only put like 5 hours on it before writing this review. I just know its the best out of the box and the neck is wonderful in my hands. I don't know what they finished the back of the neck with but I like it. The frets have no sharp edges and it just feels good from top to bottom. I will eventually put new strings on but not for a couple of weeks.
