The Pro-Mod series continues upon Charvel's storied legacy of innovative excellence in high-performance guitar design, offering the latest technology and top-notch features that modern players need.

An ideal instrument for dazzling high-speed playing, the San Dimas Style 1 HH FR E Ash boasts scorching sound, stunning style and grin-inducing playing feel and performance. Its body is crafted from ash and is coupled with a bolt-on maple neck with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for lightning fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts while the comfortably rolled fingerboard edges provide the broken-in feel of an instrument with plenty of playing miles on it, and plenty more to go. This axe also features an aged ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and white dot inlays, as well as a heel-mounted truss rod wheel for quick and convenient neck tweaks.

High-output Seymour Duncan JB and Seymour Duncan '59 humbucking pickups are directly mounted to the body, cranking out high octane rock 'n' roll tone with plenty of sweet overtones. 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. Dive to rumbling depths or add a well-placed rising harmonic without sacrificing your tuning with the Floyd Rose 1000 series double-locking recessed tremolo bridge system.

Designed with style in mind, the San Dimas Style 1 HH FR E Ash comes in two stately finishes - Charcoal Gray with black hardware or Natural with chrome hardware.

I am literally blown away by the sound and playability from this thing. I did a ton of research and tried a few other Charvels which were great sounding but didn't have the feel this one has. The tonal definition is just jaw dropping for a guitar of this price. The neck is fast and smooth and the pickups have amazing tone. I knew I would like it, but I had no idea I would like it this much. I've been playing for over 20yrs and this is hands down the best piece of lumber I have played. If you are a Strat or Les Paul player like I was, you will want to put them away the minute you lay your hands on this baby.
