Signature features in a limited-edition finish.
As a preeminent modern virtuoso, U.K. guitar master Guthrie Govan dazzles all who hear him. After two years of meticulous development working closely with the man himself, Charvel was profoundly pleased in 2014 to introduce the ultimate ultra-pro guitar—the Limited Edition Guthrie Govan Signature San Dimas®. With so many special features and high-performance appointments, it’s truly the ideal expression of Govan’s artistry rendered in distinctive Charvel form.
For 2016, Charvel is offering a limited run of the Signature Guthrie Govan model that shares many of the unique features of his original model, but in a handsome Britannica Red finish trimmed with a black burst.
The San Dimas body has a beautiful bird’s-eye maple top with a thin clear matte finish and a specially contoured heel (sans neck plate) for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. The bolt-on neck is quartersawn flame maple with a “caramelized” heat and drying treatment that makes it sound and feel much older, with graphite reinforcement, hand rubbed urethane gel on the back of the neck and a convenient truss rod adjustment wheel at the body end. Most unusually for a San Dimas model, the compound-radius (12-16 in.) flamed maple fingerboard spans two octaves, with the same caramelized treatment as the neck, 24 extra jumbo stainless steel frets and special maple dot inlays with ebony borders.
Other premium features include three specially wound Charvel custom MF pickups arranged in a versatile HSH configuration with five-way switching for the expansive tonal openness and dynamic sensitivity that Govan demands, two notched control knobs (master volume, master tone), U.S.-made recessed Charvel locking tremolo bridge with Tremol-No unit and oversized brass block, bone nut, chrome hardware and 25.5 in. scale length.
