Taking their name from the original Japanese pronunciation of Godzilla, French avant-metal quartet Gojira has cemented itself as one of metal’s paramount acts of the new millennium. Led by singer, vocalist, and principal songwriter Joe Duplantier, the band has always dealt in extremes — uncovering light in darkness and finding beauty in heaviness while also searching to expand the sonic palette. To assist him in his musical pursuits, Charvel created ferociously elegant USA and Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 guitars that bear his name.
NEW! Joe Duplantier Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH E Mahogany
The Joe Duplantier Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH E Mahogany captures all of his preferred style and specs, including an all-new pickup. A big fan of DiMarzio’s PAF® 36th Anniversary neck pickup, Duplantier sought something with a slightly more robust low end for his bridge pickup. The all-new Joe Duplantier Signature DiMarzio® Fortitude™ humbucking bridge pickup completely respond to his needs — from crushing, heavy riffs to beautiful open soundscapes and everything in between. Combined with the PAF, these pickups deliver vintage tone with a twist.
