The Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT Electric Guitar is a wondrous combination of beauty and power. If you crave a guitar that promotes precision and speed, then you've come to the right place. Whether you're laying it down in the studio, or tearing it up on the stage, the San Dimas is everything you've wanted and more.
Laid back style
The Charvel San Dimas is a figure-hugging delight, with sleek contours and deep cutaways that allow you to get the most out of your performance. No matter how you like to wear it, the San Dimas always feels just right. The smooth edges remove any obstacles from your path, so that your arms can move freely, and you can perform without limits.
Built using alder, the San Dimas has a lightweight feel that lends itself well to its freeing feel. Alder has an enviable tonal balance that combines a subtle low-end energy, a thumping mid-range punch, and shimmering highs. The snow white paintwork is protected by a resilient layer of gloss, which allows the guitar to age gracefully.
Reinforced neck design
Fitted to the body is a two-piece maple neck, which is shaped to the speed neck profile and hand-rubbed with urethane gel to maximise playability. Graphite rod reinforcement prevents unwanted twisting or warping to improve the neck's longevity. Married to the neck is a sweet-sounding maple fingerboard, which is adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way. Charvel's compound radius extends from a rounder 12-inches at the nut to a flatter 16-inches at the heel. The result is a natural playing position for the fretting hand from the 1st to the 22nd fret, whilst rolled fingerboard edges ensures seamless transitions between frets.
Seymour Duncan satisfaction
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.
The body is home to Charvel's HT6 6-string hardtail with strings-through-body bridge, which anchors each string securely to instil a feeling of confidence throughout every performance. 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 adjusting prevent unwanted fluctuations in volume or tone.
