Charvel Limited Edition Guthrie Govan Signature Model Overview by GAK:

One of only 9 for Europe! An awesome guitar for an awesome player, the Guthrie Govan signature model is both stripped down yet highly functional. Featuring the U.S.-made recessed Charvel single-locking trem, HSH pickups designed by Michael Frank-Braun and a beautiful Birdseye Maple top resplendent in Britannica Red. As a preeminent modern virtuoso, U.K. guitar master Guthrie Govan dazzles all who hear him. With so many special features and high-performance appointments, Guthrie's signature model is truly the ideal expression of Govan's artistry rendered in distinctive Charvel form.

The San Dimas body has a beautiful birdseye maple top and a specially contoured heel (sans neck plate) for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. The bolt-on neck is flame maple with a "caramelized" heat and drying treatment that makes it sound and feel much older, with graphite reinforcement and a convenient truss rod adjustment wheel at the body end. The compound-radius (12"-16") 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. Other premium features include three specially wound Charvel custom MFB pickups arranged in a versatile HSH configuration with five-way switching for the expansive tonal openness and dynamic sensitivity that Govan demands, two notched control knobs (master volume, master tone) with brass position markers set into the body, recessed original-style tremolo bridge with Tremol-No unit and oversized brass block, bone nut, chrome hardware and 25.5" scale length.
