Plays like butter - and so easy on the eyes!
Guthrie Govan's Charvel signature guitar is a delight to the senses. It looks incredible. It plays like butter. And it sounds like, well - it can sound just like Guthrie. The lightweight basswood San Dimas body sports a gorgeous flame-maple top, with a thin clear matte finish and a specially contoured heel without a neck plate to impede your high fretting. The bolt-on neck is quartersawn flame maple put through a caramelized heat and drying treatment that makes it feel and sound much older, with graphite reinforcement and an easy-access truss-rod adjustment wheel at the body end. In an unusual touch for a San Dimas model, the 12"-16" compound-radius flame-maple fingerboard encompasses two octaves, with the same caramelized treatment as the neck, extra-jumbo stainless-steel frets, and special maple dot inlays with ebony borders.
Charvel Custom pickups deliver an immense range of tone
Among AudioBuy.com.au Australia electric guitarists, the HSH pickup configuration is quite popular for the tonal dexterity it affords.

Two notched control knobs (master volume, master tone) with brass position markers are set into the body within easy reach of your pinky.
