MGR/Kim's review"Charvel 6"

Charvel CH6
Free, gift from a friend.

I love the feel of the neck, and how the guitar fits in my lap. It's a quitar you can have a love affair with. I play jazz and blues, and I have been playing for over 40 years.

A guitar repairman told me that the stock electronics were substandard. The guitar was a basket case when I got it, and I had to change out the electronics any way. I put one EMG in the neck position to get that clasic Strat sound, and thats all I need.

I looks like a 59 Plymouth.

The attention to detail and the overall quality of the guitar is far above average. I have owned numerous guitars: an ES 175, Gibson Les Pauls, a 00018 Martin, Fender Strats and it holds its own with any of them.

Much better than any Korean made guitar I have played. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice strat type guitar. I like it much better than the 70's Japaneese Fender Strat I owned. Guitars are about playability and sound not flash. This guitar isn't just for metal heads! A wise purchase, go for it.

Charvel CH6
Alder body, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard.

Round conductor 24 with box jumbo frets.

Shark tooth inlays on the fretboard.

Khaler vibrato.

Active electronics, microphones 1 double and 2 singles.

Three on / off switch (one per microphone).

A volume, a knob tonalitée and boosting the midrange.


The handle is very nice, at all levels, in all the guitar is very well balanced, the body is a bit heavy but probably contribut to Raisonnance sound.


You will not find grains or fender gibson guitar in this, it is rather typical METAL! Bold for its rhythmic and very heavy big Raisonnance for frenzied melodies.
I just use the amp with Marshall JCM2000 TSL100 tube with a morley whawha to spice solos.


I use it for 5/6 years, I've tried:
Musicman EVH
Fender SRV
Gibson Standart
LTD MH1000

I love the sound, the look, the gameplay.
And price / quality ratio, I have not found better.

Neck-absolutely beautiful; access to acute hyper practice
Handle very fast for my part of the handle strings very ready, ideal for sweeping ...
Guitar very well balanced
A little heavier than the Ibanez models but same weight as Jackson ... and lighter than a Les Paul!
His phenomenal! And here I am not at all agree with the previous commantaire!
Distorted sounds huge, even too well as compared to other guitars I use (for example IBANEZ JEM) I have to remove the saturation!
Funky hyper crystal clear sounds, crunch sounds very accurate ... VERSATILE AND COMPLETE GUITAR!
But obviously it depends on the amp used behind ... for me now head Line 6 Vetta 2 HD ... and previously MARSHALL9200 JMP1 + ...
This probably explains it ...


I play mostly the "Hard Rock 80's" Metal or current and why it is perfect!
I use it given in D Open Do ... and here for pieces of Nu-Metal, the sound is huge!
As mentioned earlier, the clean sounds are also very pure and highly crystalline desired!


Used for ten years
What I like most is its versatility, what I like least is that it is a little heavier than other guitars I use, including IBANEZ JEM
The price / quality ratio is incredible for me, especially as this guitar does not is making more than ... opportunity for me and sold off at a price!
For the current price, between 400 and 500 euros, do not hesitate!
