We have been looking forward to this run of Charvel Custom Shop guitars for quite some time - and it's fitting that the first one in is a dark and stealthy Satin Black finish. This is a San Dimas loaded from the factory with FU-Tone hardware, an EVH Wolfgang humbucker, and a 24-fret ebony fretboard inlaid with brass dots. A collaboration between ourselves, the Charvel Custom Shop and our longtime friend Adam Reiver - owner of FU-Tone! These guitars are San Dimas models, all finished in satin frost colors and will be fully loaded with Adam's famous FU-Tone hardware. Professional players such as Scott Ian, Steve Stevens, Warren DeMartini, Slash, Vernon Reid, and Eddie Ojeda have all relied on FU-Tone to take their Floyd Rose-equipped guitars to the next level. FU-Tone offers high-quality upgrades built of heavy-duty brass and titanium for all types of guitars hardware, but most famously Floyd Rose tremolos. These guitars will have a 42mm Brass sustain block with the "L" feature. The "L" takes advantage of the empty space under a tremolo arm assembly and uses the old adage of 'mass=sustain'. If you can have more metal in the piece of hardware which holds the strings - why shouldn't you? What's more - these guitars are built with total contact between the brass block and the wood of the body, there's no empty space in the tremolo cavity between the brass block and the alder wood - total contact once again equals more sustain! The guitars are loaded with the red Silent Heavy Duty tremolo springs, which have a polymer coating and a foam core to avoid that spring noise. The bridges will also feature titanium string lock inserts and red-colored D-Tunas for a pop of color.
