Charvel Announced the Pro-Mod San Dimas Guitar



Charvel announced an all-new hot Neon Pink Ash finish for the Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR E ASH. An ideal instrument for dazzling high-speed playing, the Pro-Mod San Dimas boasts scorching sound, stunning style, and grin-inducing playing feel and performance.

The sandblasted ash body is coupled with a bolt-on maple neck featuring a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for lightning fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts, while the comfortably rolled fingerboard edges provide the broken-in feel of an instrument with plenty of playing miles on it, and plenty more to go. Perfect for faster tempos, the 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard hosts 22 jumbo frets, white dot inlays and a heel-mount truss rod adjust thumbwheel.

This axe features an HH pickup configuration and comes loaded with DiMarzio Super Distortion DP100 bridge and DiMarzio PAF Pro DP151 neck pickups. The bridge is an ideal blend of full lows, defined mids and soaring highs that can handle lead or rhythm playing, while the neck pickup rips with intense mid and high frequencies that pairs well with a high-gain amp.

Other features include a three-way pickup blade switch, tone control, volume control with push/pull coil split, Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremelo bridge system, pink pickup bobbins, black hardware and a licensed Fender Strat headstock.

Charvel Announced Two New Guitars



Charvel Guitars announced the USA SELECT DK24 HSS 2PT CM and the USA SELECT DK24 2PT CM QM.

Harkening back to Charvel’s roots and born on west coast soil, the USA DK24 HSS 2PT CM models are meticulously built by the Charvel team at the Custom Shop in Corona, California, so nothing about these high-performance axes is overlooked.

Designed for modern players with discerning tastes, these all-new instruments feature an alder Dinky body with a scalloped lower back bout that works in tandem with a sculpted “shredder’s cut” heel to allow for easy upper fretboard access. The bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane back finish for comfortable playability.

Built for highly technical playing, a 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 stainless steel jumbo frets, pearl dot inlays, Luminlay side dots, Graph Tech TUSA XL nut and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.

The HHS pickup configuration consists of a custom Seymour Duncan Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup, custom Seymour Duncan Flat Strat SSL 6-single-coil middle pickup and custom Seymour Duncan Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup.

Other premium modern features include a five-way blade switch, Stratocaster-style skirt knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH Bourns low friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, Gotch Custom 510 recessed tremolo bridge with titanium saddles and thick brass block, USA made Sperzel locking tuners, and more.

The USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM is available in Quicksilver with chrome hardware or Satin Black with gold hardware, while the USA SELECT DK24 HSS CM QM features a distinctive quilt maple top wrapped in Autumn Glow or Blue Burst with masked-off natural binding and chrome hardware.
