Summer NAMM 2017: Charvel Jake E Lee & Warren DeMartini signatures
'Too fast to live, too young to die'
Charvel has revealed two new looks for its Jake E Lee and Warren DeMartini signature models, both becoming available later this year. These two ’80s metal guitar legends get tribute guitars from their classic era of rock guitar greatness.
Bark At The Moon
Charvel Warren DeMartini
This next guitar is a replica of the one Warren DeMartini played during his Ratt years in the ’80s. Known as the USA Signature Frenchie, which has James Dean’s ‘too fast to live, too young to die’, written in French along the guitar’s front.
It’s a Dinky shaped alder body with a one-piece, bolt-on quartersawn maple neck that has a 12″- 16″ compound radius maple fingerboard and is loaded with 22 jumbo stainless steel frets.
A Seymour Duncan Custom Warren DeMartini RTM ‘Rattus Tonus Maximus’ humbucker and SSL-4 Quarter Pound neck pickup are accessed via a three-way toggle switch, which sits next to a single volume control knob. You also get the obligatory original Floyd Rose bridge system to complete the ’80s shred machine look.
RRP – GBP 3,389 available in White or Black
