The formula for Charvel's Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT is simple. Hot-rodded for full-throttle performance, this superb solidbody electric guitar rocks a curvaceous ash body with comfortable contours that will feel instantly familiar; it's outfitted with premium appointments such as a maple speed neck with graphite reinforcement, topped with a silky-smooth compound-radius aged ebony fingerboard with rolled edges and jumbo frets. This San Dimas features elegant gold hardware, including a string-through-body hardtail bridge and sealed die-cast locking tuners for ultra-stable pitch and intonation. Two hot Seymour Duncan humbuckers with coil splits complete the setup, turning this guitar into a music flamethrower with amazing playability and an enormous tone arsenal that deploys everything from chimey cleans to blistering high gain. Suitable for any music genre, the Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT is a serious guitar for serious guitarists.
You play the notes; Seymour Duncan humbuckers take it from there. A '59 SH-1N humbucker is located in the neck position of this axe, while a JB TB-4 is positioned at the bridge. The '59 has a full low end, slightly scooped mids, and gently boosted highs; it preserves the clarity of the individual notes in a chord, making it ideal for rhythm work as well as jazz and blues soloing. Duncan's most popular pickup, the JB, is an ideal bridge pickup for blues, fusion, country, hard rock, thrash, punk, and grunge. The low end is full and beefy, and the highs are crisp and detailed. An upper-midrange bump adds chunk and crunch to heavy chords, which translates to a singing, vocal-like character when you solo — all while the hotter output pushes your amp just a bit harder for increased sustain and harmonics.
The classic '59/JB pickup combination is perennially favored by pro guitarists. On the Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT, you mix this potent sonic elixir through a 3-way blade switch and a volume pot with push-pull coil splitting, which puts a range of spanky single-coil tones into play. The no-load tone control functions like a standard tone pot from positions one through nine and, for sonic transparency, removes itself from the circuit at position 10, letting the full natural voice of the instrument shine through. The Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT serves up tone by the truckload. If your music has an aggressive edge to it, you'll want in on this.
Charvel's Pro-Mod series guitars rock classic Charvel style, born in Southern California more than three decades ago. These axes are packed with the hot-rodded, high-performance features artists rely on: classic body styles, premium tonewoods, unfinished oiled necks, smooth, rolled fingerboard edges, scorching pickups, rock-solid bridges, and more. Take it from the guitar aficionados at Music Experience: Get your hands on a Pro-Mod, and you won't let go.
Hot-rodded for breakneck performance, versatile sound and exquisite style, the Pro-Mod series is packed with innovative design elements that have long made Charvel a legendary name in high-performance guitars. Continuing upon that legacy, the Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 1 HH HT E Ash is tricked-out to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of today’s modern guitarist.
This high-octane instrument offers an ash body and a bolt-on maple neck with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile and 12”-16” compound radius aged ebony fingerboard are designed for warp speed playing, unhindered positional shifts and mile-wide upper register bends without fretting out, while the heel-mounted truss rod wheel allows for quick and convenient neck relief adjustments.
Designed to inspire, this instrument sports two high-output Seymour Duncan® humbucking pickups—a crisp, clear JB bridge pickup and a rich, fat ’59 neck pickup for robust tone with highly dynamic articulation and harmonic balance. 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. Play with confidence in the guitar’s tuning stability and intonation, thanks to the secure six-saddle hardtail bridge.
As curvaceous as a high-performance hot rod, Charvel’s San Dimas guitars are widely acclaimed for their sleek style. A gold hardware package, including a Charvel neck plate, sealed die-cast locking tuners and dual vintage-style flat string trees are paired to this Natural finish for an understated and classic look.
