Charvel - New Pro Stock series

So Charvel have put out a new line of guitars called "Pro Stock". It appears to be the Desolation single cut (which is an amazing piece of kit..) but with a more vintage feel. When I say vintage, what I really mean is less Schecter like finishes and passive Seymour Duncans instead of the Blackouts on the Desolation.

Would have.

The ones with the zebra pickups look great. Let's hope they're not shit like the Desolation guitars.

Interesting. These might just be Charvel equivalents of the new Jackson Pro series. Though I have to say I prefer the stuff that the Jackson arm is putting out. Even though these look nice, I'm another one to agree with Bob. They're just not Charvels.

Since they're making the new Jackson Pro DK's in Fender's Mexican factory, I reckon the next move for Charvel ought to be to start building the San Dimas and So-Cal in that factory too.

There's a thought - has there been any discussion on here about the new Jackson pros at all? I haven't seen any. Maybe I ought to start a thread...

I'm sure they're well built, but it's a shame they discontinued the Pro Mod San Dimas guitars. Those were the essence of Charvel. No-one else really makes guitars like that any more (at least not for a reasonable price).

Is there any news of a Guthrie Govan model?

I fancy a San Dimas. Purely for the Bill and Ted references.

They may well bring them back - but they won't be Japanese any more since Chushin Gakki shut down. If they tried to source another Japanese factory I can only see the prices being pushed up to the point that they may as well just build them in the US like the first round of Pro Mods before they moved them to Japan. I reckon that if they bring them back they'll be coming out of FMIC's Mexican factory.

Don't knock the Desolation til you've tried it, mine is one of the best guitars i've played.. no kidding. It's leaps and bounds better than my MIJ Tokai.



Skip to 2:12 to see my guitar.

I hope thesse are better than the desolation series.
I really want a Les Paul shape with a good heel and the heels on charvels tend to be very nice.
If the quality would just be on par with an LTD-EC1000 I would get one.


Actually, now that I think about it, I would love it if they made a Pro Stock Star model.
