Charvel Custom Shop Introduces Frank Bello Signature Bass

Charvel Custom Shop Frank Bello Signature So Cal Bass

The Charvel Custom Shop just unveiled the most recent additions to their 2022 lineup with three guitars and one bass: the Frank Bello Signature So Cal Bass. Built by Charvel’s principal master builder Pasquale Campolattano, the model is built to order and builds upon the Anthrax bassist’s existing PJ IV model.

The new bass is built with a quartersawn maple neck with black block inlays and an alder body in black. Charvel fits it with a set of Bello’s custom EMG pickups, Hipshot hardware, and a custom mirrored pickguard. Other fine details include blue Luminlay position markers and a compound fingerboard radius. It also ships with a signed copy of Bello’s latest book, custom picks, backstage passes, wristbands, stickers, and an artist-signed certificate of authenticity.

Hear more about it from Campolattano:

The Charvel Custom Shop Frank Bello Signature So Cal bass will be available now with a street price of $5,999.99.
