Re: Charvel Guthrie Govan sig coming soon

I would buy one just based on how likable he is. I liked the 1st proto better although this one is very nice.

he kills it when he demos the pickups. GAAAAAH! at 4:00

Re: Charvel Guthrie Govan sig coming soon

I like the idea of them making non fine tuner floyds again. I checked FR site and didn't see one. I had one but traded it for something I needed worse. I will be keeping an eye on that one.

Re: Charvel Guthrie Govan sig coming soon

It makes me a little happier that even the amazing GG likes dots on his neck.

I suppose he'll use that puppy to melt my face in person next week!

Guthrie started using them at the end of 2012. Guthrie & Suhr ended their mutual agreement and endorsment for whatever personal reasons they had (unknown to the public).
Since then Guthrie played a prototype Charvel and had several more.

Letīs bring a little nuance here.

Guthrie never said that his signature is the best you can get, only that he his guitars really pleases him and that people might like them too if they have the opportunity to check them out.

Some artists do switch endorsement deals like underwear, some donīt. Steve Vai, Yngwie, Satriani and a few others stayed their lives up until now with ītheirī brand. Eddie Van Halen is on the other end of the spectrum.

Itīs been known that Guthrie owned or played publicly Fender Strats, Jazzmasters, Ibanez Jem & RG, PRS, Suhr classics, Standards and Moderns in the past, owns a Gibson SG from 1963, and a 335 among others.

The man likes his guitars to be diverse to say the least.

Guthrie was officially with Suhr from 2007 to the end of 2012. He is now official with Charvel. No other endorsements, only these two, although i hear that Red Bear Picks has something special in the future.

Itīs not based on facts to say that he will change brands again in a few months just to make a quick buck. I guess we will see.

Anyway, hereīs a pic of the Charvels, on the right is the Floyd Rose model and the one on the left is the Gotoh 510 with the bent steel saddles.

Re: Charvel Guthrie Govan sig coming soon

Re: Charvel Guthrie Govan sig coming soon

My favourite thing is that he's taken a while to come out with this rather than jumping ship to a new signature model immediately.

It just needs a monkey grip and I'd consider picking one up. I can scallop the top couple of frets myself and enlarge the lower cutaway. Rout out enough space for a proper trem, can of green spray paint and a few stickers and I think we're about set

Good point, he also demo'd the Vigier Surfreter. No endorsement though.

LOL

Don't forgot to add REAL DiMarzio's after the green neon spray paint.

My comment was actually not aimed at Guthrie in particular, even though I understand it could easily be interpreted that way. It was more like a general comment about how it seems like everyone is endorsed these days, and have a new signature coming out, and that many of them switch, as you say, brands like underwear.

It was much less common back then, so the artists that got endorsed back then, it seems like it was much more genuine.

Vai, Malmsteen, etc, to them it actually meant something to be endorsed.
