Charvel Warren DeMartini Signature Snake Pro Mod Electric Guitar
It would feel dishonest to not address this guitars most obvious quality first; the Charvel Warren DeMartini Signature Snake Pro Mod guitar has a textured matte finish that impressively captures the snakeskin appearance Ratt guitarist sported during the band’s ’80’s MTV heyday. This is just one thing that sets this axe apart from the rest, but thankfully it has the sound to earn it a spot on any metal guitarist’s list, too.
Designed similar to Charvel’s San Dimas Style 1 guitar, this axe has an alder body and 22-fret maple neck, which gives it the dark and warm sound associated with the tones of the Ratt metal-era. A custom-designed Seymour Duncan RTM (Rattus Tonus Maximus) humbucker in this guitar’s bridge assists in nailing that low-end rumble humbuckers are known for, but with an added crunch providing a very compressed and tight sound.
An original Floyd Rose tremolo delivers what many guitarists believe to be superior to the more commonly found licensed Floyd Rose models so feel free to dive away without worrying about going out of tune. Bottom line, wrapping a guitar in faux-snakeskin takes some serious guts, but with all the features included in this axe, Charvel and DeMartini have definitely earned the right to get flashy.
