Charvel Desolation™ DC1 FR Trans Black Reviews


Oy you

I bought one of these in black with the Floyd. I can't fault the build/finish, it's 100% and it came set up. The Floyd stays in tune but then the arm was shaky so I swapped it out for a schaller arm. I notice that some questioned the size? Well personally I hate big heavy guitars, I will have it as light as possible until it won't stay put when you hang it on a strap, and the DC-1 FR is that weight! So so comfortable, the neck is a dream, and then I added a second battery (18v) it gives it just a bit more definition and umph. (I tucked it away in the pot box.....that's the volume and tone pots...not lol They don't supply inspiration lol.. )
One criticism. Not just for this guitar, I hate the raised rim where your arm rests, I like a chamfer/rebate like on the Strat, but then this guitar is well contoured on the back so it angles well and lessons the arm rub.

For me, if that rim was taken off in that area, and it was trans blue. Then it would perfect....

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
