Music Store Live stopped by the Charvel headquarters to talk with Product Manager Matthew Brown about the new 2016 So-Cal models.

In the clip below, Brown runs through the exciting new features that have taken this guitar to another level of tonal versatility, known as the six pack of sound.

The new colors are just as exhilarating as the upgraded features, ranging from Neon Yellow to Neon Pink and Specific Ocean to Slime Green, and more.

Guitar World Demos the Jake E Lee Signature Model

Posted on December 3rd, 2014 by MDuffy


Paul Riario of Guitar World recently ran through one of the Charvel Jake E Lee signature model guitars and noted that it was one of his favorite new releases of 2014.

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.”

So-Cal Style 1 Rated Among Top Guitars Under $1,500 By MusicRadar

Posted on May 25th, 2012 by MDuffy

The Charvel So-Cal Style 1 landed on MusicRadar‘s recent list for the top guitars in the world under $1,500, coming in at No. 11.

When MusicRadar originally reviewed the So-Cal Style 1 in 2009, they gave it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

“The hotrod vibe, thanks to the stripped-down look and candy finishes, is front and centre and, as we’ve said, the necks are truly things of wonder, the feel of which belies what is certainly a modest price tag,” wrote MusicRadar.

“This ticks all the boxes for rock and pop styles, especially all-out wang-bar madness. Go wail!”
