What Haworth Guitars say:
The Charvel USA Select So-Cal HSS FR Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard is a premium So-Cal model by Charvel.
At Haworth Guitars we love the Charvel USA Select So-Cal HSS FR Electric Guitar's Floyd Rose Tremolo, Rosewood compound radius fingerboard and 22 jumbo frets as well as the DiMarzio DP100F Super Distortion Humbucker Pickup in the bridge position and the DiMarzio DP-116 HS2 single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions.
What Charvel has to say:
Charvel launches its new flagship USA Select series with the So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR. It taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for a sleek, ferocious model with “old-school throwback” specs our high-performance players have been clamouring for, such as ’80s-style body perimeters, finely shaped neck profiles, fast compound-radius fingerboards with rolled edges, non-recessed Floyd Rose® bridges, and more.
The alder So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR body is complemented by a single-ply black pickguard, a one-piece quartersawn maple neck with one-way vintage-style bullet truss rod, and a 22-fret rosewood (white dot inlay) or maple (black dot inlay) compound radius fingerboard with rolled edges.
Pure tone pours from a DiMarzio® DP100F Super Distortion bridge pickup and DiMarzio® DP-116 HS2™ neck and middle pickups, with five-way “super” blade pickup switching that delivers the bridge pickup only (position 1), bridge pickup inner coil and middle pickup (position 2), bridge pickup inner coil and neck pickup (position 3), neck and middle pickups (position 4) and neck pickup only (position 5).
Other premium features include a single control knob (master volume), top-mounted Strat® output jack, black hardware, Floyd Rose® Original non-recessed bridge with 37mm block, and more.
