The Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar is an awesome guitar that lets you play with absolute freedom. Designed with fun at its core, the high-performance San Dimas model hails from a part of the world that is renowned for guitar building innovation, as well as a laid-back lifestyle. If you're taking to the stage and you want to do it in style, it doesn't get much better than with this absolute gem.
Laid back style
Charvel are known for being exceptionally comfortable, and to play one is to immediately fall in love with the guitar all over again. The sweetly contoured body rest snugly against you during every set, with deep double-cutaways that remove any obstacles from your hands to give them complete mastery of the neck. Crafted using lightweight alder, the San Dimas is a joy to perform with and sits just right every time you pick it up. The paintwork is protected by a layer of gloss polyurethane to enable the body to age gracefully.
Reinforced neck design
Fitted to the body is a two-piece maple neck, which has been given graphite reinforcement to create an unyielding durability. Whether you're a weekend warrior, or are embarking on a lengthy tour, you can rely on the Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas to hold its own night after night. Thanks to the speed profile and hand-rubbed urethane finish, your fretting hand can glide along the neck with effortless grace. Rolled edges give the neck a played in feel whilst the high-quality craftsmanship reassures that it has many miles in it yet. The heel mounted spoke adjustment wheel enables any adjustments to be made without any fuss to perfect neck alignment.
Paired with the neck is a 22-jumbo fret maple fingerboard, which has been decorated with black dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The well-executed compound radius means that the rounded profile at the nut extends and flattens towards the heel, which makes fretting chords and performing intricate fingerboard gymnastics.
Seymour Duncan satisfaction
The San Dimas is home to direct mount Seymour Duncan humbuckers, with a JB in the bridge and a '59 in the neck. This classic partnership makes the most of the balanced timbre of the alder to produce a rich rock 'n' roll tone with blazing presence. The volume control is equipped with a pull/pull coil split to open even more tonal variations, whilst the no-load tone control allows you to cut the tone completely so that your guitar's natural tone can shine through unblemished.
The body is home to a Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking recessed tremolo, which allows you to dive and wail without sending your tuning out of whack. At the top of the neck, Charvel die-cast tuners and the Floyd Rose FRT 02000 Locking nut are on hand to ensure that your strings remain steadfast, no matter how hard you rock out.
