Southern California is a hotbed of guitar innovation, from new musical styles and sounds to hot-rodded high-performance guitar designs. The Charvel® Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 2H FR, the ideal instrument for dazzling high speed playing, was born and raised in this sunny environment. With scorching sound, stunning quilt-top style and grin-inducing playing feel and performance, this guitar was meant to be onstage.
A top-notch performer that’s tweaked with the features modern players need, this axe sports hot-rodded high-output Seymour Duncan® JB™ and Seymour Duncan® '59 humbucking pickups directly mounted to the body that crank out high octane rock ‘n’ roll tone with plenty of sweet overtones. The volume control conceals a push/pull coil split to have even more tonal variations on tap while the No-Load tone control operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound, letting the full natural voice of the guitar shine through. Dive to rumbling depths or add a well-placed rising harmonic without sacrificing your tuning with the Floyd Rose® FRT-O1000 double-locking recessed tremolo and FRT-O1000 locking nut—simultaneously grooving on the laser-accurate intonation. The two-piece maple neck hosts 22 jumbo frets along with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for lightning fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts while the comfortably rolled fingerboard edges provide the broken-in feel of an instrument with plenty of playing miles on it, and plenty more to go.
Charvels are designed with style in mind—after all, they call it show business—and the stunning solid top with a transparent finish and curves in all the right places is sure to dazzle the audience’s eyes. A Charvel neck plate, branded die-cast tuning machines and standard strap buttons complete the package, topped off with a spotlight-ready finish that shrugs off the rigors of the road. Ready to spawn waves of sonic bliss, and able to keep up with the most demanding playing, the Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 2H FR is a guitar that will stand the tests of time and stage.
