Front Features

A
Charvel® HiMass™ Bridge

The Charvel HiMass™ bridge was engineered to enhance the instrument’s sustain, resonance and attack without altering tone. This bridge also maintains excellent tuning stability throughout aggressive styles of play.

B
DiMarzio® Pickups

These models feature powerhouse DiMarzio pickups, just like our original Charvel basses from the '80s. JJ models feature Area J™ DP551 bridge and Area J DP550 middle pickups, while the PJ models feature Model J™ DP123 bridge and Model P® DP122 middle pickups.

C
Heel-Mount Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel

A conveniently located heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel allows for rapid neck relief tweaks, even in between songs.

D
12"-16" Compound Radius Caramelized Maple Fingerboard with Rolled Edges

With the innovative 12"-16" compound radius design, the caramelized maple fingerboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut. This makes for comfortable and natural-feeling chording and riffing near the nut, with optimal shred articulation and bending nearer the heel.

E
Licensed Fender® Precision Bass® Headstock Shape

A licensed Fender Precision Bass® headstock gives these high-performance hot rod instruments a touch of traditional design.

F
Master Volume, Pickup Blend and 3-Band Active EQ

The master volume control, pickup blend control and three-band active EQ (bass, mid and treble) provide versatile tonal exploration.

Back Features

G
Unique Charvel Back Neck Shape

Charvel neck shapes are slimmer and narrower than traditional guitar necks with comfortable rolled fingerboard edges, optimized for high performance.

H
Bolt-On Neck with Graphite Reinforcement

The bolt-on neck has a pair of graphite-reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses.

I
Contoured Body

The upper bout of the body is rounded and contoured, forming to the players torso for ultimate comfortablity and ease of playing.
