This Charvel guitar is one I picked
up from BadAxe Guitars in Greensboro, NC (which is now closed sadly…).
Beautiful finish in the Trans Black with a maple neck and Floyd Rose – also includes a
soft shell gig bag (not pictured). Guitar is completely stock – no mods,
so any online Charvel spec regarding the SD1 will apply to this guitar. Great condition – no issues.
Note: I don’t have a shipping scale, but I estimate this guitar to be between 8.5lbs and 9lbs – definitely not a featherweight Superstrat…
I’ve owned a couple of FR equipped guitars, but have never been able to *bond*
with them like my hard tail ones – and the thought of changing strings sends a
chill down my spine 😉 I usually play 10s or sometimes 10.5s, but those
just don’t work on this guitar for me. I tried a few sets of 9s, but they
were just too slinky for my heavy-handed technique 😉
I had a setup done some time ago, but it definitely needs another one as I have
tried different string gauges trying to find the sweet spot for me as mentioned
above. I do like the stock pickups – Seymour Duncans have always sounded
good to my ear and the coil tap tones are probably my favorite.
I’m very quick to answer questions and always ship the same day if you purchase
before 1pm on a business day (otherwise, first thing the next morning). Thanks
