Charvel has worked closely with U.K. guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan to produce the latest incarnation of Govan's signature model for 2017 with the Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Caramelized Ash. Just as his previous signature models, this latest addition is brimming with tone, playability and elegant style.

The high-performance, high-class Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Caramelized Ash is the ultimate blend of Charvel's classic San Dimas body with exquisite appointments and premium features that have been selected by Govan himself. Your eyes will be instantly drawn in by the gorgeous tonewoods used for this model. It starts out with that unmistakable San Dimas shape, a beautifully-grained caramelized ash top, and a basswood body that's undergone a special "caramelized" heating and drying treatment to provide a broken-in feel & sound. A comfortably contoured heel offers unrestricted, smooth access to the lead range while a satin lacquer body finish emphasizes the natural beauty of fine tonewoods.

The gorgeous 2-piece flame maple neck and fingerboard have also been "caramelized" to offer a well-played feel and tone. The 12"-16" compound-radius fretboard ensures maximum playability from the first fret to the last while jumbo frets allow for effortless bending. Unique to this San Dimas, the fretboard on the Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Caramelized Ash provides a full two-octave range with its 24-fret 'board and bears elegant maple dot inlays outlined in ebony. The neck is reinforced with graphite to offer exceptional stability while a convenient truss rod adjustment wheel sits at the end of the 'board for quick, easy neck adjustments. Luminlay side dots make it easy to see even on the darkest of stages.

The Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Caramelized Ash comes equipped with a set of custom pickups that were specifically voiced to accommodate Govan's demand for dynamic sensitivity and tonal openness. Whether you play funk, blues, fusion, or hard rock, a versatile trio of specially wound Charvel custom MF pickups in an HSH configuration deliver great tone and amazing sonic flexibility to satisfy any style. The electronics include a five-way pickup selector, a simplistic two-knob control layout with dome-style Luminlay numbered knobs for visibility even in the dark, and a 2-way mini toggle for single-coil simulation when you're in bridge and neck humbucker position.

Premium hardware includes a bone nut, chrome Gotoh strap buttons, and a chrome U.S.-made recessed Charvel locking tremolo featuring a Tremol-No unit and oversized brass block for incredible tuning stability and performance. Comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
