Charvel Warren DeMartini Guitar



Warren asked Performance Instrument to somehow stick reptile epidermis to the white coloured Jackson/Charvel guitar. Mr. Sugai put the reptile epidermis on to the top part of the system, then it was covered by clear laquer by Jackson/Charvel. However, Warren didn't like it very much because the original feel of the reptile epidermis was ruined from the laquer that was applied on to it, and only the top part of the system was covered by reptile epidermis. So, Warren asked for to have it created only with reptile epidermis protecting the whole system without any protecting over it. The Snake Skin guitar in the photo above is the one created in this way which we first saw Warren play.


As an example of adhering leather (skin) of animals to musical instrument, there is a country western artist who has had his telecaster created with cowhide trapped on to it which is mostly stitched up on the part of the system. But Warren didn't like it that way, so he had reptile epidermis trapped on to the top part and back of guitar first, then the part, so the join would be invisible.


The reptile epidermis was trapped on to the under-coated system using water-based stick. It was applied wet. It reduces when it gets dry, and it gave a attribute audio. It's the same technique used to apply epidermis to the Japoneses traditional Taiko drum. Somehow this created guitar audio really good but Warren himself did not understand why only this guitar seemed different for enough moment.


In 1979, Warren performed his first gig at the front part of a small audience at La Jolla High School. As he performed with other local bands, his name started to become known as a young skilled artist in San Paul.


Some years later, Warren who in those days was enjoying in Enforcer signed up with Mickey Ratt, which later became Ratt, to replace his friend, Mike E. Lee.


Warren has become a well known artist with Ratt. He released his own single collections, and is still enjoying in Ratt now.
