Phil Sgrosso Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 H FR E, Ebony Fingerboard ($1,549.99 USD, £1,589.00 GBP, €1,849.00 EUR, $3299.00 AUD, ¥214,500 JPY) As I Lay Dying’s principal songwriter and guitarist Phil Sgrosso is a formidable creative force behind the Grammy-nominated melodic metalcore act. In his honor, Charvel presents the Phil Sgrosso Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 H FR E – a brutally modern take on a classic design.

Its mahogany body delivers rich and resonant tone for dark, chugging metal and has a scalloped lower back bout and sculpted shredder’s cut heel for comfortable and unencumbered upper-fret access. The bolt-on maple neck is graphite-reinforced to withstand the abuses of worldwide touring and has a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with rolled edges and 22 jumbo frets, fluorescent Luminlay side dots for fingerboard guidance in low light and a conveniently located heel-mount truss adjustment wheel for neck tweaks on the fly. A multi-voice Fishman Fluence Modern PRF-MHB-AB1 alnico bridge pickup delivers the most sought-after humbucking tones, from a modern active pickup with a full, boosted sound to clean, crisp and fluid tones. A single speed knob for volume control has a push/pull selector for switching between the voices. Available in Silverburst with black anodized aluminum pickguard. Available November 2022.
