The Charvel Pro-Mod DK24 HSH is the latest proof of the legendary guitar company’s commitment to bring modern metal players the finest in design, appointments, and playability. This streamlined solidbody features a mahogany body cut to an offset design that feels comfortable in your hands and against your waist. A bolt-on, caramelized maple neck with graphite reinforcement has been cut to the legendary Charvel Speed profile with rolled fingerboard edges — a favorite neck among guitarists here at Music Experience. The Pro-Mod DK24 also comes with a trio of Seymour Duncan pickups — two humbuckers and one single-coil — that deliver all the serious, aggressive tone you desire. Finally, a Gotoh Custom 510 tremolo bridge offers ultra-smooth dives, bends, and flutters, giving you all the nuances to enhance your metal performance in style.
The trio of Seymour Duncans in the Pro-Mod DK24 affords a tonal potential that will have you exploring diverse sonic landscapes for hours. For drive, the Full Shred SH-10 bridge humbucker packs a big, focused low end and about as much sustain as you can get from a passive alnico pickup. And when you need to clean up, the Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck humbucker is a breath of fresh air. This pickup boasts great touch dynamics and a sweet, bluesy top end that’s perfect for true cleans and those just-on-the-edge-of-breaking-up tones that add grit to your sound. As if these two pickups weren’t enough, you also get a Custom Flat Strat SSL6 middle pickup that yields overwound single-coil tones with undeniable punch. In addition, 5-way switching — along with a 2-way mini toggle for series/parallel selection — gives you access to a myriad of irresistible sonic textures.
The Pro-Mod DK24’s maple neck and maple fingerboard are spec’d to meet the demands of the technical player. The Charvel Speed Neck is graphite reinforced for a lifetime of rock-solid dependability. A heel-mounted spoke wheel facilitates speedy truss rod adjustments, while four heavy-duty bolts provide superior sound transmission from the neck to the body. The compound-radius fingerboard flattens out to an arrow-straight 16 inches in the upper registers, and it comes fitted with 24 jumbo frets for maximum speed and control.
Let’s face it, when you are really digging in, you don’t want a bridge that gets in the way. The recessed Gotoh Custom 510 tremolo bridge is ideal for unencumbered play, sitting flush with the Pro-Mod DK24’s body to provide texture when you need it, and a relatively low profile when you don’t. This vintage-style tremolo system also keeps tuning stable, even for all-out dives.
Charvel® once again reaches new heights of modern high performance combined with elegant style and crushing tone with the Pro-Mod DK24 HSS 2PT CM Ash, a stunning new instrument designed especially for a new breed of player whose musical vision and versatility knows no boundaries..
The sleekly sculpted mahogany Dinky™ body features a scalloped lower back bout and shredder’s cut heel that make access to the upper registers seamless. The bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement for sturdy stability against environmental warping and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back for sublime playability. Luminlay® side dots guide your way along the fretboard on even the darkest of stages, and the heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes for painless neck relief tweaks. Designed for fast playing, the 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets, pearloid dot inlays and Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut. Smooth sustain paired with warm, buttery timbre radiates from a custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred™ SH-10B bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat® SSL6 single-coil middle pickup and custom Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro™ APH-1N neck pickup. The bridge pickup emits a bright tone with a tight low end and scooped mids. The middle pickup is the perfect blend of heightened output and springy Stratocaster attitude, while the humbucking neck pickup shines with a distinct warmth that is silky and boasts incredible natural sustain. Taking our modern DK24 platform up a notch, this 2PT model's premium modern features include a five-way blade pickup switch, Stratocaster®-style skirt knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH® Bourns® low friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, Gotoh® Custom 510 tremolo bridge, Charvel-branded locking tuners and more. Sporting sophisticated style, the Pro-Mod DK24 HSH 2PT CM Mahogany is available in an all-new Natural finish with gold hardware.
