Matt’s Music Center in Weymouth, Mass., has been waiting for about two-and-a-half years for their Charvel Custom Shop San Dimas models in a striking Red Flame finish, but they attest that the anticipation was worth it.
With only five models made, the Red Flame San Dimas axes are quite limited. Luckily, Chris Bryant of Matt’s Music recently pulled one of them out for a quick demo.
Check out what these guitars can do after the jump. (more…)
The axe is based on the distinctive white “Charvel-ized” instrument the former Ozzy Osbourne and Badlands guitarist has played ever since he bought it new back in 1975.
“If you’ve been a fan of Jake E Lee, then this part guitar is a no-brainer,” said Riario. “But if you just like a no-nonsense guitar that is performance enhanced, this is the model to check out. It’s certainly one of my faves.”
Charvel’s Mike McGregor recently led the folks over at Gear Gods on a tour of the Charvel Showcase at the 2014 NAMM Show, especially noting the new Guthrie Govan signature guitars that will be out in 2014.
McGregor showed off both versions of the model, one with a bird’s-eye maple top and another with a flame maple top.
Check out Govan’s signature models in the video below.
During a recent tour stop at New York City’s Highland Ballroom with his band the Aristocrats, guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan was paid a visit by the folks from Music Zoo to check out his latest prototype guitar from the Charvel Custom Shop.
Check out the breakdown below and visit the Aristocrats’ official website for more information.
The guys at Andertons Music in the U.K. recently checked out a few of the new Charvel Pro-Mod series of guitars, featuring both the So-Cal and San Dimas models.
And, the review of these hot-rodded axes would not be complete without some input from hair-metal “legends” Richie Sambuka and Wilder “The Beastmaster” Beast, who get a call in the second half of the video to teach the audience how to really rock.
