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 our 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.
