    Do the top mounted OFR's on the USA and Japanese Socal's have restricted movement compared to the recessed floyd rose on the Mexican socal? ie. Does the Mexican recessed trem have more movement range?

    2010 Carvel MIJ SoCal. It has a neck mod done where the pinwheel was put in the base of the neck so you dont have to remove the neck to adjust the truss rod. The trem is currently blocked and dive only, but that can easily be removed. The pickups are Seymour Duncans, but I am not sure what...

    I listened to you all saying keep the pickguard black so I did. I need a black knob for the tone control but besides that this thing kills Tonezone/Area 51/ Heavy Blues. Push pull pot that splits the bridge hum only so I can get a real Strat out of this thing. This one is so good that I think...

    Do these play like Jackson's, or do they play like strats? I'm gassing hard as fuck for a metal tele, or strat , and the SoCal's are the front runner, followed by Jim Root tele's. I know a few you you gentleman here have SoCal's so I thought I'd ask what they're reminiscent of/similar to. Thanks!

    I have wanted a Charvel Pro-Mod since they were first reintroduced, but the timing was never right for me financially to buy one. Then when they stopped production of the MIJ models I really felt like I'd missed the boat. Thankfully though, I stumbled upon this one on ebay and got it at a...

    I was just wondering how to go about taking care of my guitar neck. In the past I've always played strats with finished necks, but my new MIJ Charvel So-Cal has an unfinished maple neck, or perhaps its a very fine oil finish. I would just like to know what the best products to use on it are, and...

    I don't think there's much to say other than that it's awesome. You really get a lot of guitar for your money with this thing. The only bad thing would be the truss rod adjustment, but fortunately the neck was perfect with just a slight bit of relief, and changing the strings to 10's didn't do...

    Well my birthday just passed yesterday and I spent the weekend in California for my Uncle's wedding so what better present to myself than ordering a new guitar from Ron Thorn and hand-picking the woods at his shop! :D I don't have any strats around the house and having seen and heard several...

    So I was checking out the beautiful purple So-Cal on the homepage and was wondering if anybody could tell me if the floyd on that is a dive only trem. I have Zero experience with these guitars so any info would be appreciated. All my guitars have graphite necks and use an LSR roller nut with a...
