Aggressive Tone, Custom Looks
If you’re like us, you look back on the Superstrat movement of the ’80s with a certain fondness. Inspired by the hot-rodded S-style axes of years past, the Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH HT E is a bona fide shredder. It’s got the Southern California look, screaming Seymour Duncan pickups, and a silky-smooth compound radius ebony fingerboard. The So-Cal comes loaded with a Charvel HT6 string-through-body hardtail for exceptional sustain and rock-solid reliability. Plus, you’ll be impressed by the comfortable contours and blazing fast feel of the neck. If you’re in the market for a fire-breathing axe that you can pull right off the shelf, the Charvel Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH HT E is your first choice.
Screaming Seymour Duncan Humbuckers
The Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH HT E comes equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups for a high-output, aggressive flavor packed with sweeping tonal versatility. First up, the bridge position sports a screaming TB-6 Duncan Distortion Humbucker — a model that more than lives up to its name, with a clear bell-like character that shines through even when chunking out ultra-high-gain drop-tuned riffs. Plus, the TB-6’s natural-sounding midrange, tight bass, and clear trebles deliver a fluid, vocal-like character that’s perfect for melodic work and rapid-fire soloing. Looking to dial down the gain? The neck-position SH-6N provides enough output to balance well with the bridge-position TB-6, but produces a slightly less aggressive tone that’s perfect for your cleaner moments.
Compound-radius Charvel Speed Neck
Every facet of the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH HT E’s maple Speed Neck is primed for high-speed performance, but while it’s certainly on the leaner side, it’s by no means strictly limited to single-note solo applications. In fact, guitarists of all stripes have come to favor the wide “U”-shape of the Speed Neck — especially as the ebony fingerboard’s 12–16-inch compound radius offers comfortable chording down low, while simultaneously facilitating fleet-fingered technicality as it flattens out in the upper register.
The Pro-Mod Story
Charvel’s Pro-Mod series guitars rock classic Charvel style, born in Southern California more than three decades ago. These axes are packed with the hot-rodded, high-performance features artists rely on: classic body styles, premium tonewoods, unfinished oiled necks, smooth, rolled fingerboard edges, scorching pickups, rock-solid bridges, and more. Take it from the guitar aficionados: Get your hands on a Pro-Mod, and you won’t let go.
