      Comments about Charvel Desolation DST-3 FR Star Electric Guitar:

      I actually picked this guitar up new for half price right after the holidays. Our other guitarist has one and I'm always playing his when he brings it to practice. I couldn't pass it up for the money. I see a lot of griping about the pick up, and honestly it's nonsense. The pick up is fine. A lot of people are off put because it doesn't say EMG, DiMarzio, Duncan, etc. If you slapped a recognized name on it, they'd praise it. It's clear and articulate, but it also has a lot of punch to it. The neck on this thing is amazing, but that's to be expected with any Charvel or Jackson. I can't say enough about this thing. It's simple, affordable and amazing. If you have the money , buy it.

      Comments about Charvel Desolation DST-3 FR Star Electric Guitar:

      Nice black star body, one pickup, one volume knob, a Floyd. Simple. The stock pickup is inferior. I replaced it with an EMG H4A and improved the sound greatly. I bought mine used and it was not set up well. I was able to fix that, can't comment on how well a new one would be set up. It now plays and sounds great. This guitar has potential, and if you have the time, patience, and knowledge, it's a worthwhile addition to the arsenal.
