The new Charvel Limited Edition Super Stock SC1 is a So Cal body with a relic paint job and retro ’80s styling, loaded with EVH and Seymour Duncan pickups – it’s shred nirvana!
Charvel Limited Edition Super Stock SC1
Everyone loves a classic Charvel So Cal body shape, with Netflix’s Stranger Things making us all nostalgic for the ’80s and relic guitars being a ‘thing’. It was only a matter of tome before Charvel put all this in the mix and made a guitar like this one.
The new Charvel Limited Edition Super Stock SC1 is a stripped back shred machine that has that ‘road warrior’ worn in vibe, courtesy of that black relic paint job on the alder body. I guarantee you that there are guys in their 40s thinking up excuses right now to sneak one of these past their wife unnoticed the minute they are available.
Slinky, and oh so fast
It has a fast maple neck with 22 Charvel jumbo frets on a 12-16″ compound radius Pau Ferro fretboard, with rolled edges. You know it will play like a certain dairy product I cannot bring myself to say outright.
Pickups are an EVH Wolfgang in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan Lil’ Screamin’ Demon in the neck position. One Volume control and a three-way toggle switch is all you get and, to be fair, they’re all you need.
A Floyd Rose 1000 double locking bridge and nut should keep everything in tune while letting you squeal and dive bomb to your heart’s content. This is limited edition and pre-order are starting today, go and order/buy one now. Worry about what the wife says later.
