Summer NAMM 2017: New Warren DeMartini and Jake E Lee signatures from Charvel

Jake E Lee's original Blue Burst guitar gained notoriety during his stint with Ozzy Osbourne.

Charvel has unveiled two new signature models at this year’s Summer NAMM show.

Fans have long clamoured for a replica of Warren DeMartini’s famed and beloved "Frenchie" guitar, as seen live on tour and on a slew of magazine covers throughout Ratt’s reign in the 1980s.

Charvel has responded with the Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie, available in a Snow White and a Gloss Black finish. Both are detailed with cross decals and a tribute quote to James Dean in French that translates to "too fast to live, too young to die."

The Frenchie features a Dinky alder body, one- piece bolt-on quartersawn maple neck, 12"- 16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo stainless steel frets and black dot inlays, Seymour Duncan Custom Warren DeMartini RTM (“Rattus Tonus Maximus”) humbucking bridge pickup and SSL-4 Quarter Pound neck pickup, three-way toggle switch, single volume control knob, Floyd Rose Original locking bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.

The Charvel Warren DeMartini USA Signature Frenchie has an MSRP of £3,389.

Also announced is a new Blue Burst finish for Jake E Lee’s signature Charvel model

Jake E Lee's original Blue Burst guitar gained notoriety during his stint with Ozzy Osbourne, as he recorded and performed live with the famous instrument throughout the band’s pivotal Bark at the Moon and Ultimate Sin years.

The Jake E Lee USA Signature Blue Burst features a poplar San Dimas body, one-piece bolt-on quartersawn maple neck, 12" radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and white dot inlays, customised Seymour Duncan JB Alnico II humbucking bridge pickup, single-coil DiMarzio SDS-1 middle and neck pickups, five-way blade switch, single volume control knob, brass Charvel hardtail bridge and output jack plate, and black Gotoh tuning machines.

The Charvel Jake E Lee USA Signature Blue Burst has an MSRP of £2,819.
