Charvel Unveils Additions to the Pro Mod So-Cal Style 1 Series

A perfect fusion of elegance and high performance, the Pro-Mod Series offerings are designed for a new breed of player whose musical vision and versatility knows no boundaries.


Charvel is revealing its newest addition to its legendary Pro Mod So-Cal Style 1 Series, the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR M, Maple Fingerboard and Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR E, Ebony Fingerboard.

The new Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS comes loaded with everything a player could ask for in terms of sound, style, and feel. A perfect fusion of elegance and high performance, the Pro-Mod Series offerings are designed for a new breed of player whose musical vision and versatility knows no boundaries. These models epitomize sleek, advanced playability for the seasoned professional and the aspiring performer, blending sophisticated style with assertive tone for maximum playing enjoyment.

Here’s what’s different about the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR M, Maple Fingerboard:
  • A conveniently located heel-mount spoke wheel allows for rapid truss rod tweaks, even in between songs.
  • Engineered for effortlessly nimble playing, the speed neck profile and 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard with 22 frets is perfect for all styles of play—from low-end riffing to soaring leads with worry-free upper-register bends.
Here’s what’s different about the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS FR E, Ebony Fingerboard:
  • The no-load tone control operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound, letting the full natural voice of the guitar shine through.
  • Scream or rumble with the Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo system without sacrificing tuning stability or the pinpoint intonation.
