Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR
Made in China
Original Floyd Rose
Mahogany body
Maple neck
Rosewood fingerboard
NECK slim and fine
24 jumbo frets
EMG 81 in the bridge / EMG 85 in the neck
3 position selector
A general volume


The handle is incredibly nice, slim, very fast, I'm a pro BC Rich for over 10 years, I found my penultimate acquisition, bc rich stealth, fabulous leave his flat and wide neck, but it is happiness x 2.
The handle is really nicer than my BC RICH, flatter, thinner, more is unvarnished, something I've always found highly enjoyable to play.
The finish is flawless, no bad cut fret, nor evil pasted.
The neck-level factory setting was really good, probably the best I had seen.
Acute one easily reaches.

I did not test the guitar strap, but given the form it should have a standard uniform has all kind of model.


Its level compared to the stealth EMG 81 and alder body, maple neck and ebony button, the Charvel with mahogany body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard sounds less bass, less serious, more slamming, better defined, many more medium.
Both are granted if a 12/60 pitch with 25.5 for the Charvel and 13/64 with 24.75 pitch for bc rich. The small gap for pulling comprenser the length of the tuning fork can recess a little play on the "serious" look but it will remain slight.
Anyway, the sound is really clear, something that can be really interesting when playing in low tuning.


I use it for a short time, but the differences between my other two are the bc rich.
The Charvel is much more comfortable neck level, it is clear, I do not say that c is necessarily better for everyone, but it is the small detail that might make me change brand Charvel / Jackson permanently.
The kind of time or you say "shit and if I sold but bc rich for jackson or Harvel"
The value for money, I heard a lot of trouble this guitar, as what it is not worth the price, that it was no longer the pre Charvel that Fender has just affixed the Charvel logo, or c ' is downright a stew unnamed I even saw types revendres after his remarks.
I play for 13 years, the marketing aspect of Fender, I tappe total, there is written Charvel or stew on the head, for me it's still a great guitar, super fun to play and really sounds well.
I paid new in store for 800 euros.
And I really like this medium side it gives off, I who always play guitars with lots of bass.

Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR
Channel 24 frets ebony, rosewood fingerboard, EMG 81/85. It is equipped with a Floyd Rose bridge. Mahogany body and maple. Pickup Selector and volume knob.


The neck is very thin. It can move very quickly, which makes the solos and complex riffs August Burns Red. I play very often over the last frets, access to acute is very good.


It is very suitable for my type of music. I saw the guitarist of All That Remains play on this guitar. I subsequently purchased. I play on an amp Line 6 Spider Valve MkII 212 and I get a heavy and accurate although violent sound. There is too much bass clean for my taste, I set the knob to low fourth on the amp.


I use it for 1 year. I love the shape and the band of nacre around the body and the frets. Before buying I played a LTD EC1000 Deluxe, an Ibanez Iceman and Gibson equipped with EMG 81/85. The sound of the LTD EC1000 was too greasy for my taste. The attack on the Charvel is much better, more accurate and slamming. And then she had ended as it was the last store. The finish is perfect for a guitar made in China, it easily cost twice as much if it was made in Japan or USA. With the experience I do not know if I would do this choice because I increasingly want to spend on 7 string, so I can be bought or LTD Jackson 7-string instead, but otherwise she would like very the road well.

Charvel Desolation Soloist DX-1 FR






Excellent handle, but its very feeble even mounted EMG, no bass, no potatoes, shame.
It looks like the wood of the guitar does not have ..
Sounds ultra neutral, ca might have been an advantage if the wood was good, but this is not the case.
A real escape.
My rating is based on the wood of the guitar, not the handle is great.
