A Note from Guthrie Govan on his Charvel Sig Model Finish

Charvel Translation if picture size was too difficult to read …

Greetings! Guthrie here, with a little update about the finish on my signature Charvel model …

During the last year or so, my “#1″ guitar has accumulated both air miles and “battle scars” in equal measure. Whilst there’s something undeniably “rock ‘n’ roll” about a well-worn instrument with a story to tell, a year’s worth of touring has somehow left my poor #1 looking like it’s endured a whole lifetime of neglect and abuse.

Mildly troubled by this, I asked Charvel if they could come up with a finish which would make the GG model more resistant to the rigours of life on the road, without compromising its tone in any way.

Well … I’m happy to report that they’ve found a way to achieve precisely that!



Thus, we hope you enjoy Govan’s Charvel signature model, now available with a thin layer of lacquer applied to the body as added protection.
