As a preeminent modern virtuoso, U.K. guitar master Guthrie Govan dazzles all who hear him. After two years in meticulous development working closely with the man himself, Charvel introduce the ultimate ultra-pro guitar”the Guthrie Govan Signature model. With so many special features and high-performance appointments, it' truly the ideal expression of Govan' artistry rendered indistinctive Charvel form.
The San Dimas body has a beautiful flame maple top, with a thin clear matte finish and a specially contoured heel (sans neck plate) for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. The bolt-on neck is quartersawn flame maple with a "caramelized" heat and drying treatment that makes it sound and feel much older, with graphite reinforcement and a convenient truss rod adjustment wheel at the body end. Most unusually for a San Dimas model, the compound-radius (12"-16") flame-maple fingerboard spans two octaves, with the same caramelized treatment as the neck, 24 extra jumbo stainless steel frets and special maple dot inlays with ebony borders.
Other premium features include three specially wound Charvel custom MFB pickups arranged in a versatile HSH configuration with five-way switching for the expansive tonal openness and dynamic sensitivity that Govan demands, two notched control knobs (master volume, mastertone) with brass position markers set into thebody, recessed original-style NOS Floyd Rose tremolo bridge with Tremol-No unit and oversized brass block, bone nut, chrome hardware and 25.5" scale length.

Comments about Charvel Guthrie Govan Signature Model Flame Maple Top Electric Guitar:
Easy to play high sustain and crunchy classic rock leads, rhythms, or clean chords or fingerpicking. Very versatile. My favorite. Beats my Gibson Les Paul. Better than my old Ibanez. Stays in tune with tremelo bar.
Nice pickup options with different tones. Lightweight. Best guitar I've ever played in 38 years. Looks beautiful too.
