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 M is tricked-out to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of today's modern guitarist.

This high-octane instrument offers an alder or ash body and a bolt-on two-piece 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 maple fingerboard are designed for warp speed playing, unhindered positional shifts and mile-wide upper register bends without fretting out, while the heel-mounted spoke wheel allows for quick and convenient truss rod 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. White pickup bobbins and a gold hardware package, including a Charvel neck plate, sealed die-cast locking tuners and vintage- style flat string tree are paired to this Snow White finish for a classic and stately look.

I have a bunch of higher end guitars, including a Gibson Explorer and LTD H-1000. Each one of those needed fret work, which really annoys me. There were buzzing frets which needed levelling and crowning. The San Dimas has the most perfect frets I have ever seen. There are no high spots, the ends are not protruding or sharp, and they are perfectly polished. The routing of the pickup cavities could be better but meh, it doesn’t bother me. The neck is buttery smooth and has a super fast feel. The nut was cut perfectly for the 9-42 it came with, so when I changed to 10-52 gauge I had to widen it a little but that was easy. The Duncan pickups are classic sounding; I play mostly metal and the JB could be a little tighter but I have compared the sound to my Explorer with a Bare Knuckle Holydiver and it sounds excellent. All in all, amazing playing guitar. Highly recommend.

This guitar will beat any strat that cost two to three times as much. The unfinished maple neck is absolutely amazing, fast down low but still rounded enough at the lower frets for chords. The pickups are second to none and add the coil tap and your possibilities are endless. If you want Les Paul this can dial it it, want that strat sound it's there, but even better it sounds like a Charvel which is the best of all. My only complaint is no stainless steel frets.
