Went to the store last weekend and saw one hanging on the wall. I’ve always been attracted / repulsed to this guitar, the later mainly because of the dull finish, though I really like the yellow touches on it (inlays / logo).
So I grabbed it and try it….
First time I played a Pro-mod one (only tried USA's So-Cal's before). And FML : this thing played like butter. The neck… The neck… THE NECK !
It's crazy confortable. It's also compound radius. The neck single coil sounded sooo good to me (a Duncan STK-T1). And i'm not even a single-coil fan! The build quality vs price on this (I didn't even pay 750$ for it, brand new) is i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e.
Charvel says that finish is for you to make your own finish with it... Cool idea me thinks. But I have no plans for that as of now. So in the end, price was so good and guitar felt and sounded so nice that I had to take it home with me!
