Charvel epitomised the Superstrat in the 80s, with their hot-rodded instruments seen in the hands of many prestigious hard rock and metal guitarists. In the 21st Century, Charvel continue to build their signature high-performance instruments, boasting a raft of high-spec features that ensure optimal playability and, of course, tone!
The Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 FR is loaded with a set of versatile Seymour Duncan humbuckers, a 1000 Series Floyd Rose tremolo system, and also features a graphite-reinforced neck with a compound radius fretboard for ultimate playing comfort. In terms of features and construction, this guitar punches far above what its price suggests.
Alder is a classic tonewood used in the construction of Strat-style guitars, a tradition that Charvel has largely continued to adhere to. With very balanced tonal qualities, Alder ensures a strong mid-range that lends itself particularly well to high-gain, producing a focused tone that can punch through effortlessly in busy mixes. Adorned with a stunning Quilt Maple top, this guitar oozes class.
Paired with a Maple neck, this bright-sounding wood will help to deliver some top-end definition, and a bolt-on construction provides a snappy response with plenty of projection and clarity. Reinforced with Graphite, this neck will remain stable even in differing temperatures and conditions, meaning you won't have to tinker with your setup very often at all.
A compound radius fretboard is an excellent, high-end feature of this instrument. Rounded at the lower end of the neck to make chords easier to play, the fretboard flattens out in the higher register to make shredding a total breeze. This also helps to prevent notes from fretting out when performing string bends, making it a very ergonomic design. Another luxury feature of this guitar is its rolled fingerboard edges, providing even more comfort for your left hand so that you can move up and down the neck super-smoothly.
Electronics and Hardware
This elegant instrument is powered by a pair of high-output Seymour Duncan humbuckers, capable of handling copious amounts of gain whilst being versatile enough to clean up very well too. The JB in the bridge position delivers all of the upper mid-range bite you'd expect, for tight definition when playing riffs. The classic '59 neck pickup has a smooth yet articulate tone, ideal for lead work.
The three-way pickup selector switch is deceiving, offering a greater amount of pickup combinations than you'd think. Letting you isolate the bridge and neck humbuckers for typical operation, the middle position will select the inner coils of both pickups for the best of both worlds. Engage the push/pull coil split, and you'll attain your classic Strat tones. Position 1 will offer the bridge outer coil for that vintage spank, whilst position 3 gives you the neck outer coil for a warmer sound. Keep it in the middle, and you'll engage bother outer coils, offering pristine angelic tones with clean settings.
The Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo will keep your tuning super solid, and with a recessed design you can divebomb and flutter to your heart's content!
Here's what Charvel say about the Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 FR in Chlorine Burst:
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 M QM boasts scorching sound, stunning style and grininducing playing feel and performance. Featuring an alder body with an elegant quilt maple top, this guitar also has 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 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. Its maple fingerboard hosts 22 jumbo frets and black dot inlays, and has a heel-mounted spoke wheel for quick and convenient truss rod adjustments.
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 M QM is available in two new bold and elegant finishes — Purple Phaze and Chlorine Burst. Both feature chrome hardware, including a Charvel neck plate, sealed die-cast tuners and standard strap buttons.
