As a preeminent modern virtuoso, U.K. guitar master Guthrie Govan dazzles all who hear his playing. Charvel spent two years of meticulous developmental work with Govan to originally introduce his signature model, and it’s the ultimate ultra-pro guitar that's only gotten better with time. Loaded with special features and high-performance appointments, it's truly the ideal expression of Govan's artistry rendered in distinctive Charvel form.

A 25.5" scale guitar, the Guthrie Govan USA Signature HSH Flame Maple offers a caramelized basswood San Dimas® body topped by gorgeous flame maple with a thin satin urethane finish and a specially contoured heel (sans neck plate) for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. The bolt-on flame maple neck has a "caramelized" heat and drying treatment that makes it sound and feel much older, along with graphite reinforcement, hand-rubbed urethane finish on the back of the neck and a convenient heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel. Most unusually for a San Dimas model, the 12"-16" compound radius flame maple fingerboard spans two octaves, with the same caramelized treatment as the neck, 24 extra jumbo stainless steel frets and special maple dot inlays with ebony borders, as well as Luminlay® side-dots that emit light for the darkest of stages.

Other premium features include three specially wound Charvel custom MF pickups arranged in a versatile HSH configuration with five-way switching for the expansive tonal openness and dynamic sensitivity that Govan demands, a two-way mini toggle switch to engage single coil simulation in bridge and neck humbucker position, two Luminlay numbered dome control knobs (volume, tone) with a brass pin locator, U.S.-made recessed Charvel locking tremolo bridge with Tremol-No™ unit and oversized brass block, bone nut and chrome hardware.
