OVERVIEW

Born to Rock - just like you.

Reagan-era Sunset Strip glam metal has its devotees and detractors, but there's just no arguing with the ferociously slamming chops of guitarist Russ "Satchel" Parrish. Simply put, nobody puts the 1987 into today like Parrish and his metalloid feline cohorts, and Charvel is excited to deliver a huge horns-up in the tiger-striped form of the Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK Yellow Bengal.

The instrument has an alder Dinky body with sharper-radius top edges and a flamboyantly florescent Yellow Bengal finish. Of special note are the two Fishman Fluence Classic humbucking pickups, which share a single volume control knob with special push/pull dual voice activation. Using this control, the PRF-CHB- NB1 neck pickup delivers ideal-but-elusive vintage PAF humbucking neck pickup tone with just the right dynamics and output (voice one), or a Fluence-exclusive neck tone with clear and airy chime, unreal high end, highly vocal midrange and tight lows (voice two). Similarly, the PRF-CHB-BB1 bridge pickup delivers ideal vintage PAF humbucking tone calibrated for perfect output (voice one), or quintessential hot-rodded humbucking bridge tone without all the baggage (voice two). You get the idea—it sounds %$#@& huge.

The two-piece bolt-on maple neck has a Fender Stratocaster headstock with Charvel-branded die-cast tuners, graphite reinforcement and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, and a Charvel neck plate. Atop that is a compound-radius maple fingerboard (12"-16") with 22 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays. Other features include a three-way toggle pickup switch, rear-body "football" output jack, Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double - locking two-point tremolo bridge, and more. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Charvel Pro-Mod DK Signature Satchel Electric Guitar:

    So, two things motivated my buying this guitar: 1) I'm a huge Satchel (aka Russ Parrish) fan; 2) I've been wanting a guitar with Fishman Fluence pick-ups since I started learning about them. That said, I was not disappointed with this purchase. It's a very well made guitar, the feel is outstanding (it does have a wider radius so the neck feels almost flat,) and those Fishman's add a whole other weapon to your arsenal. Give this one a bit of your time, you might be impressed.

      Comments about Charvel Pro-Mod DK Signature Satchel Electric Guitar:

      I own quite a a few charvels and this one is special.. The pickups are extremely clear and unique in voicing. Not like a pair of seymour duncans or emgs or anything out there for that matter. Hard to describe. Definitely a welcome change imho and make this george lynch inspired axe a great vesatile weapon and a great balanced choice if you're just looking for a nice go-to axe... Looks aside has the typical charvel playability and mojo, and this maple fretboard seems a bit different and of higher quality than a current standard pro-mod. Nice fretwork and rolled edges and mine is tinted a certain hue and brings out the wood grain pattern a bit more..Rest assured you cannot go wrong with this beast. I only had this a few months so another review will have to follow. Still getting to know her :-) Have fun!! Ratt & Roll
