CHARVEL® ADDS PRO-MOD MODELS INCLUDING THE ALL-NEW DK24 PLUS NEW OPTIONS FOR SO-CAL AND SAN DIMAS® GUITARS

 

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (January 23, 2018) – Charvel® announces the release of new Pro-Mod Series models including the brand-new DK24, additional wood and color options for San Dimas® Style 1 and 2 guitars, as well as new finishes for the So-Cal Style 1.

A powerful tone machine built for the harder side of rock, the Charvel Pro-Mod DK24 is available in seven all-new variations including an okoume body paired with an aged ebony fingerboard, an ash body featuring a maple fingerboard and hardtail, and alder bodies with quilt maple top options, maple fingerboards and either Floyd Rose® or hardtail options.

Supercharged with premium features, each DK24 offers a sleekly sculpted Dinky™ body and a bolt-on two-piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement for rock-solid stability, as well as a hand-rubbed urethane gel back finish for sublime and speedy playability. The 12”-16” compound radius fingerboard hosts 24 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays, and a heel-mounted spoke wheel for quick and easy truss rod tweaks.

Under the hood, the DK24 is ready to handle even the heaviest riffs, tastiest leads or angelic clean tones with a Seymour Duncan® Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup and a Seymour Duncan Jazz SH-2N neck pickup. Dial in the tonal spectrum with five-way blade switching, master volume and a No-Load tone control that 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.

Designed with time-honored style, the new Pro-Mod DK24 HH FR M includes an alder body, maple fingerboard, recessed Floyd Rose® 1000 series double-locking tremolo bridge system, and comes in either Snow White or Satin Black capped off with white pickup bobbins and gold hardware.  Also available is the Pro-Mod DK24 HH FR M QM, which adds a quilt maple top in Root Beer Burst with gold hardware or in Transparent Purple Burst with black hardware.

The Pro-Mod DK24 HH HT M QM features a Charvel HT6 string-through body hardtail bridge and a quilt maple top in a beautiful Purple Phaze finish with black hardware.

The Pro-Mod DK24 HH HT M Ash features an ash body with a Charcoal Gray finish, Charvel HT6 string-through body hardtail bridge and black hardware.

The Pro-Mod DK24 HH FR E Okoume features an okoume body with a Natural satin body finish, an aged ebony fingerboard, Floyd Rose® 1000 series double-locking tremolo bridge system and black hardware.
