    Angel Vivaldi showing his new Charvel Nova 6



    I'm on the hunt for a HH guitar, this looks interesting and the Reverse Headstock is a major plus. Although the "Custom Vivaldi" neck profile says nothing to me. Thinner than normal amazing Charvel necks? Thicker?

    If it's anything like the 7 - and I assume it is - it's more like an '80s Charvel than a modern one. I found it godly.

      Angel is the best dude ever and you should buy all the things with his name on them.

        Yeah, that 7 neck is super comfortable. A worn in feeling C in the Goldilocks zone.

          He does say it’s a “full, robust” neck shape. A 6-string neck that feels natural for someone who has been playing sevens for ages? Sign me up!

          This has a sweet feature set, and I love the colour. I could use a nice H-H guitar with a trem.

            I'm all in on two point trems too. I wish the few double-lockers that I do have were made with 510s instead. The 2Ps stay in tune just as well and are 500% less annoying to set up.

              the only 2 point Gotoh trem I tied was last year in Paris at Metal Guitar shop. It was a Import Nick Johnston Schechter and that thing was a butter smooth and hold tune great.

              Wilkinson sells the locking Saddles for it that Pete Thorn uses and swears by, sadly the individual saddles all have their stupid logo on each one making it look like shit....

                I and want some for my E-II because my hand will be in the way, muting, anyway.

                  The 7 neck is great. One of the few sevens I've tried where I've really bonded with it.

                  The 6 is also very pretty and I love that color.
                  It's a pretty intense price increase for the 6 though; from $1200ish to $1600ish IIRC.

                    I really like the gotoh 510 trem. It's really stable and smooth, and holds tuning great.

                      Maybe I've been unlucky, but not IME. Had 2 Charvel with it, and sent them back because they would not stay in tune. Now, I don't want anything to do with that bridge. And I'm a Charvel man. Floyd or GTFO.

                        Sounds like you have been unlucky. I have a bunch of these with no issues.

                          Most of the time, the problem is with how the nut is slotted, not with the bridge. If you have individual strings going out of tune, the problem will be with the nut. If you stay in relative tune, but the overall pitch goes up or down, then the problem is likely the bridge--the knife edges not being sharp enough or the posts moving.

                          On a cheaper import, the setup on the nut will likely vary a lot between guitars because that's fine detail work. That's not the kind of thing I'd typically return a newly purchased guitar for. A decent tech can fix it for you in five minutes.

                            Yeah, I mean, the only reason I haven't bothered with the locking saddles on my Suhr 6 is that tuning stability is good enough that I haven't felt the need. It's a very nice trem.

                              Oh, you're a 100% right. I guess I don't want to deal with that (taking a brand new guitar to a tech) and I'll always prefer the overall feel of a Floyd that will never go out of tune anyway. I know many people love those bridges, but I also find them to be a bit "anti-Charvel", so take what I write with a grain of salt.

                                Then you need to find a better tech
