Charvel Announces Pro-Mod DK22 SSS 2PT CM Mahogany with Walnut

The Dinky mahogany body with figured walnut top features a sculpted shredder’s cut heel and scalloped lower back bout for comfortable and unencumbered upper-fret access.

The Dinky mahogany body with figured walnut top features a sculpted shredder’s cut heel and scalloped lower back bout for comfortable and unencumbered upper-fret access. The caramelized bolt-on maple neck has graphite-reinforced rods for rock-solid stability and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish for sublime playability, Luminlay side dots for fluorescent fingerboard guidance on dark stages and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and painless neck relief tweaks.

Designed for high-speed playing, its 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets, pearloid dot inlays and a Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut. The SSS pickup configuration features a Seymour Duncan Custom Hot Rails Strat SHR-1B humbucking bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup for glassy, vintage-style timbre with classic Strat® chime. Other premium modern features include a five-way blade pickup switch, skirted Stratocaster-style knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH Bourns low-friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, and Gotoh Custom 510 tremolo bridge. Available in Natural with gold hardware.
