For the first time, Charvel now offers a more affordable version of Jake’s hallowed So-Cal guitar, with the 2022 spring release of his signature Pro-Mod So-Cal. Like his USA So-Cal, this instrument is based on the distinctive white "Charvel-ized" instrument the great guitarist acquired in 1975 by working at a music store to earn trade credit.

Although originally a Sunburst Fender Strat, Lee’s roommate back in the day worked at Charvel and offered to paint the guitar as a birthday present. While he was at it, he also cut down the headstock and added a Charvel logo to it. Other mods soon followed to the iridescent Pearl White guitar, including a new black pickguard and reverse slanting of the single-coil middle and neck pickups — an idea inspired by hearing the tones Jimi Hendrix was getting from playing his Strat upside down. 

Made famous during his Ozzy-era, the Pearl White So-Cal remains a fan favorite that Charvel is thrilled to bring to Lee’s legions of fans in a more affordable Pro-Mod form.

“When I was coming up in the ‘80s, Charvel was THE cool guitar to have,” says Lee. “40 years later, it still is.”
