Weight: 3.663 Kilo
Charvel’s flagship USA Select Series taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for sleek, ferocious models with “old-school throwback” specs our high-performance players have been clamoring 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 USA Select So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR body features an alder body with a single-ply black pickguard, 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).
