Re: opinions on the Charvel So Cal Pro Mods?

I love Charvel's. In my opinion, you would be better off to buy an older MIJ (Fort Worth) Charvel rather than a new one. The older MIJ models are very nice guitars. A lot more attention to detail, much more than the new So Cal or Pro Mod models. I make take some slack for this, but the new Charvel's don't really feel any different to me than a Mexican strat. I've had many real San Dimas Charvel's from the 80's, and to me the new ones just don't compare. I'd buy 2 older Fort Worth (MIJ) Charvel's for the same cash instead of a new one. Just my opinion, but we all know what they say about opinions.......

Just wanted to point out that the Floyds on the USA and MIJ Promods were/are OEM Korean made models, not what most consider an OFR(the German made one).

Still awesome guitars for the $$$.

Re: opinions on the Charvel So Cal Pro Mods?

I would like to have a so-cal. I want to have the one that has the orange finish, similar to that of the "Dinosaur sticker RG" that Paul Gilbert has.

I love RGs, though the "Roundy" Charvel So-Cal is a nice break from all that "pointiness"

Bringing this one back from the dead.............

I'd love to get my hands on one of these guitars, MIJ or MIM. I think they look great and from the videos and reviews I have seen, they sound great as well.

Re: opinions on the Charvel So Cal Pro Mods?

I played a few and loved 'em, so I ordered the wildcard with the trans gold finish in HSS. When it came into the store I checked it out, and the neck pocket route wasn't cut deep enough. It was the only one they got with the issue.

Guys at the store were great and let me have an RG Southern Cross for the same price, so I ended up better off imho.

Rock on!

picts please! Your killing me with a purple so Cal!

I've been waiting ages for a San Dimas - Candy apple blue.. hope to get it finally this month - they are hard to find!

I did play one, amazing all for under $700.00 - I've hardly ever seen anyone with a bad review of a Charvel.

Re: opinions on the Charvel So Cal Pro Mods?

How do I know what year my Charvel So Cal was made ?

On the heel of the neck there is a plate with a serial number JC10XXXXXX

Does this mean that the guitar was built in 2010 ?
