The new models are built by the Charvel team at the Custom Shop in Corona, California.
Scottsdale, AZ (March 18, 2020) -- Charvel today announces the USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM and USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM QM models.
Hearkening back to Charvel’s roots and born on west coast soil, the USA DK24 HSS 2PT CM models are meticulously built by the Charvel team at the Custom Shop in Corona, California, so nothing about these high-performance axes is overlooked.
Designed for modern players with discerning tastes, these all-new instruments feature an alder Dinky body with a scalloped lower back bout that works in tandem with a sculpted “shredder’s cut” heel to allow for easy upper fretboard access. The bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane back finish for comfortable playability.
Built for highly technical playing, a 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 stainless steel jumbo frets, pearl dot inlays, Luminlay side dots, Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.
The HSS pickup configuration routing consists of a custom Seymour Duncan Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup, custom Seymour Duncan Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and custom Seymour Duncan Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup. These powerful pickups combine for a versatile tonal force with beefed up mids and articulated, crispy highs.
Other premium modern features include a five-way blade switch, Stratocaster-style skirt knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH Bourns low friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, Gotoh® Custom 510 recessed tremolo bridge with titanium saddles and thick brass block, USA made Sperzel locking tuners, and more.
The USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM is available in Quicksilver with chrome hardware or Satin Black with gold hardware, while the USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM QM features a distinctive quilt maple top wrapped in Autumn Glow or Blue Burst with masked-off natural binding and chrome hardware.

Dunable announce new Minotaur model featuring Grover Rotomatic Keystone tuners.
The Minotaur's DNA is rooted in their classic Moonflower model, which Dunable discontinued in 2017. However, they have long since wanted to create a fresh take on a carved top guitar design, and various attempts to rework the Moonflower led them to a brand new concept with the Minotuar.
Dunable's goal is to give the player a guitar that plays fast and smooth, sounds amazing, and gives maximum physical ergonomic comfort. The Minotaur's soft and meticulous contours, simple and effective control layout, and 25.5" scale length are designed to easily meet this criteria.
- 25.5" scale length
- Dual Humbucker
- one volume, one tone, push pull for coil splitting
- Grover Rotomatic Keystone tuners
- Grover Tune O Matic bridge with brass Kluson top-mount tailpiece

Adding to the company’s line of premium-quality effects pedals, Missing Link Audio has unleashed the new AC/Overdrive pedal.

The AC/OD layout has three knobs to control Volume, Gain and Tone. That user-friendly format is perfect for quickly getting your ideal tone, and it also offers a ton of versatility. MLA’s new AC/OD absolutely nails the Angus tone from the days of “High Voltage” to "Back in Black”. You can also easily dial inMalcom with the turn of a knob. The pedal covers a broad range of sonic terrain, from boost to hot overdrive to complete tube-like saturation. The pedal is designed to leave on all the time and is very touch responsive. You can get everything from fat rhythm tones to a perfect lead tone just by using your guitar’s volume knob and your right-hand attack.
