Guthrie Govan recently signing with Charvel has been big news in the guitar industry, but absolutely huge for us at The Music Zoo.  Not only are we enormous fans of his amazing playing, we have a long standing love affair with simple, player-oriented rock and roll Charvel guitars ever since we ordered the first Zoo-Exclusive Natural Series guitar years ago.  High-performance, no bullshit, and tons of tone is what Guthrie is going for with his new signature model, and we got a first hand look at his touring protoype this week at New York’s Highline Ballroom.  Check out the video above for Guthrie’s personal tour of the features that are built into Guthrie’s guitar and his explanation of why he put them there in the first place.  We should have some information very soon from Charvel on exactly what the production model will look like, what features it will have, and what it will cost, but for now, enjoy this glimpse of what’s to come.  Check out Guthrie on tour this month with The Aristocrats.
