Charvel has debuted its new Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR E Ash guitar.
This striking, built-for-speed model features a sandblasted ash body and a bolt-on maple neck featuring a pair of graphite-reinforcement rods and a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and white dot inlays. A heel-mount truss rod adjusting thumbwheel is also included, allowing for quick neck relief tweaks.
Sonically, it packs DiMarzio Super Distortion DP100 bridge and DiMarzio PAF Pro DP151 neck pickups, controlled by a three-way pickup blade switch, tone control and a volume control that conceals a push/pull coil split.
Elsewhere, the guitar features a Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system, pink pickup bobbins and black hardware.
The Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR E Ash guitar will be available in October - in a Neon Pink Ash finish - for $1,099.
