OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Classic style with high-output pickups, coil-splitting and Floyd Rose tremolo.

Ready and waiting for the fleet-fingered guitarist, the Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 2H FR is a slick performer with features and sound every guitarist will appreciate. Born from a love of high-speed playing and smooth style, this fun-in-the-sun guitar is packed with the classic playability and innovative design elements that have made Charvel a legendary name in high performance axes.

Hot-rodded for unparalleled performance, versatile sound and outstanding playing feel, this instrument hosts a high-output Seymour Duncan TB-6 Distortion humbucking bridge pickup and a warm, fat Seymour Duncan SH-6N Distortion humbucking neck pickup for killer tone all night long. The volume control hides a push/pull coil split for even more highly useful tonal variations, ideal for everything from a biting lead sound to thick, chunky rhythm work.

Scream or rumble with the Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking recessed tremolo and FRT-O2000 locking nut without sacrificing tuning stability or the pinpoint intonation. The rock-solid two-piece maple neck carries a thumbwheel butt-adjust truss rod along with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to match your personal specifications while remaining as true as your commitment to playing, despite the ravages of the road and climate. Engineered for effortlessly nimble playing, the speed neck profile and 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard are perfect for all styles of play from low end riffing to soaring leads with worry-free upper-register bends.

Sleek, smooth and more comfortable than an overstuffed armchair, Charvel instruments are designed to be a true player’s instrument. From the four-bolt Charvel neckplate to the Charvel-branded die-cast tuning machines and jumbo frets, this guitar is packed with the style and sound created with more than three decades of experience. Ready to shine under the spotlight and pump massive, flexible tone through a PA, the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 2H FR is a welcome addition to the Charvel stable of high performance rock ‘n’ roll instruments.

      Comments about Charvel Pro Mod So Cal Style 1 2H FR Electric Guitar:

      I am totally in love with this Charvel. I am usually a PRS and Gibson player but decided I needed a Shredder again after a few years without a Floyd Rose. Guitar was great out of the box. The neck is fabulous and the pick ups scream. I am really blown away by the quality of this guitar being that I did not go for the American built model.

      Comments about Charvel Pro Mod So Cal Style 1 2H FR Electric Guitar:

      Charvel guitars have the greatest necks known to man. The tone on this so cal guitar as well as the san dimas is to die for. Puts 3k guitars to shame. I own a custom shop gibson and play this beast more than any other axe that i own. Rocket Red looks gorgoeus in person and it sbsolutely screams. From funk to metal, this thing does it all!! The so cal is going to be a bit darker than the san dimas model and more suited for heavier styles of music, since it's also stocked higher output super distortion pickups. I think somewhere around 17k resistance.. They push your amp and usually I usually don't care for the tone of ceramic pickups, but these have great tone ad harmonics. The weight of the so cal is worth mentioning since it's heavier than it's compatriot the san dimas , which adds to the tone. I personally like a heavier guitar and that most certainly adds a smidgen to the sustain an low end. Can't remember how many times picked up a 6 pound strat and it felt and sounded so thin and shrill. Also, the sh6 super distortion cleans up real nice as well, contradictory to what some people think state on the web. All in all this is a phenominal instrument, my 2nd charvel, and most certainly not my last.

      Over 20 years experience playing the greatest instrument known to man.

        Comments about Charvel Pro Mod So Cal Style 1 2H FR Electric Guitar:

        Well, this is day two of owning this gem. At first I was disappointed but now it is growing on me. A few things should be explained or you are not going to like this guitar. The ceramic pick ups comes set up for lead and does the job very well. As for any rhythm, the pick up is just to high at the bridge and you'll get a ton of mud. This is a high output pick up and you'll have to lower it to find your sweet spot for both rhythms and lead. At a lower setting the wood tone comes in and just feels a lot better. Next I had an unbalanced bass with distortion and it still wasn't the god tool I was expecting. But after engaging the tone knob I am more pleased then the beginning. For distortion, as this is just my opinion, The capacitor needs to be in service to balance the bass and "feel normal". As for clean setting, very strat like and bright with it out. So don't be too fast to judge this guitar. Its like learning a new woman and we know they are all different. Learn the controls, set it up to your style and it's a great sounding guitar at a decent price.

          Comments about Charvel Pro Mod So Cal Style 1 2H FR Electric Guitar:

          I have the prior model before they added the push pull and tone knob. Fit and finish is great, the guitar is faster than any of my other axes and the factory setup and Floyd were both more than satisfactory. My biggest critique is the neck pickup. The SH6N is simply too hot and lacks character - it's all gain and no cut, I really want more treble. I'm going to reverse it and hopefully that will help but really, put a JB or a 59 in there and this thing would rule.
