Charvel launches its new flagship USA Select series with the San Dimas Style 1 HSS HT. This hardtail model taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for a sleek, ferocious model with old-school throwback specs Charvel's high-performance players have been clamoring for, such as 80s-style body perimeters, finely shaped neck profiles, fast compound radius fingerboards with rolled edges, and more.
The alder San Dimas Style 1 HSS HT body is complemented by a one-piece quartersawn maple neck with one-way vintage-style bullet truss rod, and a 22 jumbo fret rosewood (white dot inlay) compound radius fingerboard with rolled edges and a bone nut. Pure tone pours from a DiMarzio DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup and DiMarzio DP-116 HS2 neck and middle pickups, with five-way super blade pickup switching that delivers the bridge pickup only (position 1), bridge pickup inner coil and middle pickup (position 2), bridge pickup inner coil and neck pickup (position 3), neck and middle pickups (position 4) and neck pickup only (position 5). Other premium features include a single control knob (master volume), side-mounted football output jack, black hardware, string-through-body bridge, and more.
