Charvel Welcomes Neil Swanson to the Club

Posted on July 12th, 2018 by Sara Norton

We are psyched to announce Neil Swanson as our newest Charvel artist!

“Being a Charvel artist feels like being part of something traditional and classic, but also very fresh, modern and exciting,” said Swanson

The Texas-born and bred guitarist packs a punch of talent on the axe, as proven when he was crowned the winner of Orianthi’s worldwide Talenthouse.com “Be My Band” competition. Steve Vai also recognized him as one of the top 10 guitarists in America and invited him to open his tour after Swanson won Guitar Center’s Steve Vai Sessions contest with a solid cover of Vai’s song “Juice.”

Since then, Swanson has toured the world and shared the stage with some of music’s biggest acts including Vai, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Michelle Branch, and developed a playing style as iconic as his platinum blond hairdo.

Outfitted with a slick Snow White Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1, Swanson is currently tearing up the stage with the hard rock band Diamante.
