The Pro-Mod Series continues upon Charvel’s storied legacy of innovative excellence in high-performance guitar design, offering modern players the latest technology and top-notch features. An ideal instrument for dazzling high-speed playing, the Limited Edition Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR M offers next--level style with an adventurous Sin City Sparkle finish and matching headstock with a black Charvel logo and chrome hardware. The alder body is coupled with a graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple speed neck with comfortably rolled fingerboard edges. The 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard has 22 jumbo frets and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and convenient neck relief tweaks. High-output Seymour Duncan JB and Seymour Duncan '59 humbucking pickups are directly mounted to the body, cranking out a high-octane rock ‘n’ roll tone with plenty of sweet overtones. The volume control features push/pull coil splitting for even more tonal variations, while the no-load tone control operates as a standard tone control from positions one through nine and is removed from the circuit at position ten for a transparent sound that lets the full natural voice of the guitar shine through. A Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system allows for an aggressive dive bomb without sacrificing tuning stability. Available in Sin City Sparkle.
