The Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT Electric Guitar offers the effortless class of the Southern California company's home, in a model that is built for speed and roars like a wildcat. The San Dimas is a lightweight and easy to play model that is perfect for those who like to tear it up on stage, whilst feeling and looking good in the process.
Laid back style
The Charvel San Dimas is a delight to play, thanks to the carefully implemented contours that create a figure-hugging fit during performances. The softly bevelled edges ensure that no matter whether you wear it high and swing it low, the body always sits sweetly. Deep double-cutaways allow your fretting hand to reach up to the highest frets with ease, so that sailing through the speediest of leads is a breeze. Built using alder, the San Dimas has a lightweight feel accompanied by a balanced tone, guaranteeing versatility and a substantial energy despite its size. Protected by a layer of gloss polyurethane, you can rest easy in the knowledge that the paintwork will 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 Charvel's HT6 6-string hardtail with strings-through-body bridge, which creates a seamless connection between strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. The headstock is fitted with Charvel sealed die-cast locking tuners to retain a steadfast support for precise tuning throughout. The knurled flat top control knobs prevent slippage whilst making adjustments to prevent unwanted fluctuations in volume or tone.
