CHARVEL® ANNOUNCES NEW SAN DIMAS® STYLE 2 GUITARS, LIMITED EDITION SUPER STOCK DK24 MODEL & LEFT-HANDED SO-CAL & SAN DIMAS GUITARS

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (January 19, 2017) – Charvel expands its Pro-Mod Series with a vast array of new San Dimas® Style 2 guitars.

Pedigreed shredders, Pro-Mod San Dimas® guitars are packed with high-speed playability and innovative design elements that epitomize Charvel’s definitive combination of time-honored style and modern features, power and performance.

The all-new San Dimas® Style 2 models come in a variety of finishes with options including ash, alder or okoume bodies, hardtail or Floyd Rose®, 6-or 7-string, rosewood or maple fingerboards and a left-handed version.

Charvel also announces the release of the Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HH FR M LH, Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 1 HH FR M LH and Limited Edition Super Stock DK24.

 

Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH FR / Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH FR M

The Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 HH FR offers an alder body coupled with a two-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods for rock-solid stability, speed neck profile, 12”-16” compound radius dark rosewood fingerboard with hand-rubbed urethane gel back finish, 22 jumbo frets, white dot inlays and a convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt-adjust for easy access.

This instrument is also equipped with a high-output Seymour Duncan® JB TB-4 humbucking bridge pickup and a warm, fat Seymour Duncan® ’59 SH-1N humbucking neck pickup, controlled with a three-way blade switch. The volume control hides a push/pull coil split for even more highly useful tonal variations—ideal for everything from a biting lead sound to thick, chunky rhythm work, while the No-Load tone control operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound, letting the full natural voice of the guitar shine through.

A Floyd Rose® double-locking recessed tremolo and locking nut increase tuning stability and laser intonation.
