The San Dimas is favoured by many due to its sweet playability due, which is all down to its superbly crafted body. The elegantly swept curves combine with the slender body depth to establish heavenly playing feel unlike any other. The bevelled edges afford a comfortable resting position, whilst the deep double-cutaways create unfettered access to the upper frets.
The body is crafted using alder to accentuate the lightweight playability. Alder also offers a focused midrange clout that ensures the San Dimas can easily hold its own in the mix. Paired with this is a stunning quilted maple top, which provides a stunning finish to the guitar. Protected by a resilient gloss coating, you can rest assured that this beauty will age gracefully in your arms.
Reinforced neck design
Joined to the body via a solid bolt-on construction is a delightful two-piece maple neck. Shaped to the fast-playing speed profile and hand-rubbed with urethane gel, the neck offers the perfect platform for your hand to soar along. To prevent changes in humidity or temperature from affecting the neck, graphite rods has been applied internally for reinforcement. 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.
Married to the neck is a 22-jumbo fret maple fingerboard with dot position inlays providing a subtle navigational aid. The fingerboard is shaped to Charvel's compound radius, extending from 12-inches at the nut to 16-inches at the heel. The result is a natural feel for the fretting hand as you perform elaborate technique with ease.
Seymour Duncan humbuckers
The San Dimas is home to a pair of powerful Seymour Duncan humbuckers, with a JB TB-4 in the bridge and a '59 SH-1N in the neck. The JB is a crisp and clear pickup that brings that gives your rhythm and lead chops a sparkling clarity. The '59 is a fat and juicy tone monster that saturates each note with inspired articulation and harmonic balance.
The volume control offers push/pull coil split capabilities to extend the tonal arsenal available to you even further. The No-Load tone control responds normally from position 1 through 9, and removes itself from the circuit at position 10 to allow the natural tone of the guitar to shine through in all its glory.

At the top of the neck, Charvel sealed die-cast tuners and the Floyd Rose nut ensure that tuning is upheld meticulously throughout the most daring of performances.
