Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK
Laugh all you want while headbanging along to Steel Panther’s satirically swaggering take on Reagan-era Sunset Strip glam metal, but there’s just no arguing with the ferociously slamming chops of guitarist Russ "Satchel" Parrish. Simply put, nobody puts the 1987 into today like Parrish and his metalloid feline cohorts, and Charvel is excited to deliver a huge horns-up in the tiger-striped form of the Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK.
This signature axe has an alder Dinky body with sharper-radius top edges and a flamboyantly fluorescent Yellow Bengal satin finish. Of special note are the two Fishman® Fluence Classic humbucking pickups, which share a single volume control knob with special push/pull dual voice activation. Using this control, the PRF-CHB-NB1 neck pickup delivers ideal-but-elusive vintage PAF humbucking neck pickup tone with just the right dynamics and output (voice one), or a Fluence-exclusive neck tone with clear and airy chime, unreal high end, highly vocal midrange and tight lows (voice two). The PRF-CHB-BB1 bridge pickup also delivers ideal vintage PAF humbucking tone calibrated for perfect output (voice one), or quintessential hot-rodded humbucking bridge tone without all the baggage (voice two). You get the idea—it sounds %$#@& huge.
Other features include a graphite-reinforced two-piece bolt-on maple neck with licensed Fender Stratocaster® headstock, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, 12"-16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and dot inlays, three-way toggle pickup switch, "football" output jack and Floyd Rose FRT-O2000 double-locking two-point tremolo bridge.
