Charvel's flagship USA Select Series taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for sleek, ferocious models with “old-school throwback” specs our high-performance players have been clamoring for, such as '80s-style body perimeters, finely shaped neck profiles, fast compound radius fingerboards with rolled edges, non-recessed Floyd Rose® bridges, and more.
The USA Select So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR body features an alder body with a single-ply black pickguard, quartersawn maple neck with one-way vintage-style bullet truss rod, and a 22-fret rosewood (white dot inlay) or maple (black dot inlay) compound radius fingerboard with rolled edges.
