Built for High-speed Performance

The Charvel Custom Shop was one of the first companies to produce high-quality super S-style electric guitars. And the Charvel San Dimas was the beginning of what continues to be a pinnacle of high-performance solidbody electric guitars. In that vein, the San Dimas Style 1 HH FR boasts features like a compound-radius fretboard and dual Seymour Duncan humbuckers to ensure your playing is effortless and enjoyable. The Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR is built to give you the ultimate instrument for highly technical styles.

Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The company that started it all
  • Effortless playability
  • More tones than meets the eye
The company that started it all

Originally founded in the 1970s, Charvel began building highly customized versions of many of the electric guitars of the day. Those designs quickly caught on, and most well-known rock guitarists of the '80s were seen slinging one over their shoulder. The San Dimas continues to be one of their most popular designs from those days. And players like Warren DeMartini, Jake E. Lee, and Guthrie Govan are ensuring that these guitars stay well known for years to come.

Effortless playability

The ease of play that the Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR offers is what put the company on the map. They were some of the first guitars to offer a compound-radius fretboard that flattens out from 12" to 16" as you move up to the higher frets. The rolled fretboard edges on the hand-rubbed urethane-finished neck feel like a perfectly broken-in guitar right from the factory. And the Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo keeps your tuning rock solid while you enjoy maximum pitch control.

More tones than meets the eye

While the Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR excels at high-output, high-gain humbucker tones, the 3-way pickup selector and push-pull tone knob deliver six distinct sounds for fitting into most musical situations. Full humbucking and bell-like single-coil tones are both available. A no-load tone pot is completely removed from the signal path when turned all the way up, delivering a full signal from the Seymour Duncan JB and '59 humbuckers. And the classic construction of alder and maple are a great combination for a balanced tone.

Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH FR Electric Guitar Features:
  • Electric guitar built for fast playing styles
  • Seymour Duncan humbuckers drive your amp hard
  • 6 pickup-switching combinations
  • Compound-radius fretboard
  • Recessed Floyd Rose maintains tuning stability
  • No-load tone pot ensures signal clarity
  • 22 jumbo frets
The Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 is the high-speed guitar that started it all.

Awesome

This guitar is amazing! The neck is just awesome. Better than my American Standard. The Seymour Duncans are the perfect match. Bart from Sweetwater is always great to work with. The guitar only needed some minor tweeking when it arrived. Great guitar and great company. My New #1!

Highly Versatile Guitar

The build quality on the instrument is top notch. The metallic black finish is gorgeous with the matching black hardware. It came reasonably well set up out of the box, but with a Floyd Rose (at this price point, it's not German, probably Korean or Chinese, but there's virtually no performance difference) you know you have to adjust, adjust, and then adjust again before you get it set correctly. The two areas I'm most impressed with on this guitar are the neck and the electronics. The neck is, hands down, the most comfortable I've ever played. The neck profile combined with the compound radius makes it a joy to play. I could even tell when I was lifting it out of the box while it was still wrapped in packing material that it was going to be amazing. Now, as far as the electronics are concerned... wow. Is this a shred machine? Hell yes it's a shred machine. It's a Charvel. But it is so much more. The coil taps, 3 way switching, and no load tone knob make this guitar as versatile as it gets. Want a tele? Bam. Want a jangly Rick sound? Bam. Want a bluesy single coil Strat? Bam. Throaty Les Paul? Done. And of course you can get your Shred on. As usual, my sales rep Aaron Swaidner was there every step of the way with great advice and input. Don't buy a guitar from anyplace other than Sweetwater. You know you're going to get the best deal and service on the planet. Period.
