Charvels are the guitar equivalent of a sleek '80s sports car and are simply the epitome of cool. Even moreso are the awesome artist signature models they put out, and this Warren DeMartini signature axe is no exception!
This guitar is a venomous tone machine loaded with scalding Seymour Duncan pickups, the venerable Floyd Rose Original double-locking tremolo and a lightning-fast neck. Playability-wise, the fretboard is effortlessly smooth, but there's still a lot of soul to the neck profile - you never get the feeling you're playing a flat toothpick.
The tone is simply hot and ferocious. The signature Seymour Duncan bridge pickup is perfect for all things crunch and wail, and the Quarter Pounder neck is a ridiculously thick single-coil that sounds incredible under gain, retaining the piano-like sound of a Strat neck pickup with humbucker-like punch.
This axe is perfect for the Ratt fan or anyone who wants a sexy shredder unlike any other!
Fans have long clamored for a replica of Warren DeMartini's famed and beloved Frenchie guitar, as seen live on tour and on a slew of magazine covers throughout Ratt's reign in the 1980s. Charvel has responded with the Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie, available in a Snow White and a Gloss Black finish. Both are detailed with cross decals and a tribute quote to James Dean in French that translates too fast to live, too young to die.
The Frenchie also offers premium features such as a Dinky alder body, one-piece bolt-on quartersawn maple neck and a 12"- 16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo stainless steel frets and black dot inlays.
Custom-made for the legendary lead guitarist, the Seymour Duncan Warren DeMartini (RTM Rattus Tonus Maximus) bridge pickup is a powerful high-output humbucker that naturally compresses for a well-balanced and even tone, perfect for complex chording and precision soloing. The RTM is boosted by an SSL-4 Quarter Pound neck pickup, adding fat, supercharged punch and extra sustain.
The Frenchie also features a single volume control knob, three-way toggle switching, a Floyd Rose Original locking bridge and Gotoh tuning machines. Hardshell case included.
