Re: New Charvels

There's a dedicated forum on Jackson and Charvel guitars, you know But since you asked here - well, they're cheap, so what would you expect from a cheap stuff? To be cheap and ****ty? It is
PS Grab a US Production Model or Japanese Pro-Mod while you can, those are great guitars and amazing value, especially the used ones.

Re: New Charvels

I bought a hardtail desolation soloist in flat black.

AWESOME neck. Plays really well.

Fit and finish are lacking a bit, but I like it.

Hard to tell. The Desolation series runs from $200 to $900. Which are you looking at? They're all different.

Re: New Charvels

I was actually considering the blue hardtail soloist is worth the buy! Looks good on pictures and has EMGs, so could be used for metal stuff...
