NAMM 2020: We'd expect absolutely nothing less than wall-to-wall shredability from the electric guitar hot-rodders extraordinaire, and this year Charvel sure doesn't disappoint with a suite of high-performance signature heavy hitters for the likes of Angel Vivaldi, Joe Duplantier, and that shy and retiring six-stringer, Satchel from Steel Panther.

And their 2020 Winter NAMM rollout is packed with high-spec non-signature models for any of us to express our own identity on; guitars such as the Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1, the quintessential souped up S-style, or the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 2, which takes what could have been a Telecaster once upon a time but has been weaponized now for high-gain, high-speed shenanigans.
