Charvel has responded with the Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie, available in a Snow White or a Gloss Black finish. Both are detailed with cross decals and a tribute quote to James Dean in French that translates “too fast to live, too young to die.”
The Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie offers premium features including a Dinky™ alder body, bolt-on quartersawn maple neck and 12"- 16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo stainless steel frets and black dot inlays.
