Review of Desolation Single Cutaway 3 Electric Guitar


from Undisclosed

Comments about Charvel Desolation Single Cutaway 3 Electric Guitar:

Charvel has really outdone themselves with this series of guitars. The one I bought has a quilt top with a mahogany body and is a great buy at this price. Action was great right out of the box. The neck is a dream and is seriously fast. The compound radius makes it easy to play and fret full chords higher up on the neck. Sustain for this guitar is fantastic. The stock pickups are good for now probably would beneifit from a Hot Rodded humbucker set. Stock pups get a PAF sound from the neck pick up and a Jimmy page type sound from the bridge. I wanted a back up guitar for my strat and since I have gotten this guitar I haven't played anything else. If you can afford to get the DS2 with the actives and neck through go for it. However for a limited budget this is the best built guitar for the money out there. Very happy with this purchase and will end up buying another one. Thank you Fender for reviving the Charvel name and line. Couldn't be happier with the quality at this price!!!!
