« Not a real Superstrat »

Publié le 08/04/11 à 11:00
Fender has been building guitars for half a century now and they have changed little about the classic American Fender Strat that has made them so famous. Sometimes you have variations of pickups and different tops, but the overall design hasn't changed much. These guitars have been so popular that nothing other than the Fender telecaster and the Gibson Les Paul have made such a huge impact on the guitar world. If has even given much inspiration to modern guitar builders of today. Many other builders have copied this design and body shape and some have made it better but nothing says rock n roll like an Stratocaster. This one guitars is called a fat Strat because it doesn't have single coil pickups but two humbuckers installed.

SOUNDS

I like having the two humbucker in the guitar but I wish it had a couple single coils in the middle and neck position. This guitar is beautiful on top of a beautiful tone. The tone of this guitar is just one of a kind. The two humbuckers give more of a superstart style, but doesn't nail eh Charvel thing at all in my opinion. Sure other builders have build a better sounding and more versatile strats and certainly Charvel has taken the STrat platform and build the world's first superstrats, but this is classic and original. Something to be said about the original.

This guitars features two pickups cascading up the body and a selector switch. Not too much as far as features go but this guitar is a player's dream. This is the same thing as you would get in a new Charvel guitars and those guitars in my opinion are far more superior to this and plus they use better pickups. IN every Charvel you get either Seymour Duncan pickups or DImarzio's.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are harder ti fond now ad days. And I think most of the buying public for these guitars are in Japan and Australia. I actually think they are built in Japan. I would pass on this guitar and buy a newer made in Japan Charvel. Those guys are required to go to luthier school unlike our American builders from Mexico.
