NGD: It's a shooting star......by Charvel.

At last, it arrived........& no battle scars either. Phew!!

It rocked up Tuesday morning but I haven't done a thing with her apart from these pics coz Ive been incredibly ill.
I'd have to be not to care about a new guitar, right?

I will get around to a suitable report but for now pics & a brief description will have to suffice.

Overall, for the price it's a very nice axe, comfy to hold & no neck dive. But it is chinese & you can tell by some of the finer finishing details
but nothing to be concerned about. The neck is a bit chunky, I guess I was expecting more of a Jackson feel but it's still nice.

Anyway, on to the pics..............





The bloodline is strong in this one

These things look awesome! The only thing close to it I've played is an ESP LTD Gus G signature, and it was a little difficult to hit the upper frets. Any troubles with that?

These Desolation Stars are really awesome guitars! Congrats!

All Charvel needs to do now is stay the heck away from abalone - they're using it on everything these days!

Leave no stone unturned until I'm done.

I prefer the ones without the abalone, but it's still hot.

Love Charvel starz.

People rag on the Desolation series for being MIC but I would be ok with it with less bling

Yeah guys, it's nice alright. Got around to hooking her up a giving it a good thrash n shred. Sounds awesome, plays smoothly, very comfy, really loving her,

Randyrhoads123.......upper access not a problem, easier on my dinkys/fusions etc but still fine.

I'm surprised how different it sounds to my MH400, only real diff here is the body shape. It's mahogany but sounds more alder yet different to my DK w/EMG's. Powerchords rip out with such clarity it's mindblowing.

If anyone is interested in this type of guitar, I say get one of these, at this price you can't lose.

What case is that?

Kind of looks like its built to universally fit Stars, Kellys, maybe even a Death Angel or Rhoads?
