Charvel introduces its new Desolation series guitars.

There are 10 new guitars in the “first wave” of the Charvel Desolation series—four single-cutaway “DS” models, three double-cutaway “DC” models and three Skatecaster “SK” models based on the Charvel Surfcaster of the early 1990s. All feature mahogany bodies and necks, dual humbucking pickup configurations with three-way toggle switching, solid and transparent finishes (with flame maple veneer on trans finishes) and black nickel hardware. Most feature compound-radius (12”-16”) rosewood fingerboards with 24 jumbo frets in a variety of neck-through, set-neck and bolt-on configurations; Charvel bridges specially designed for compound-radius fingerboards (except DS-3 ST Floyd Rose-equipped models); and three-on-a-side locking Charvel tuners (except DS-3 ST and Floyd Rose-equipped models, which have non-locking three-on-a-side tuners).
