Summer NAMM 2018: Charvel announces new Pro-Mod DK24 models
Charvel introduces the new Pro-Mod DK24 HSS 2PT CM and Pro-Mod DK24 HSH 2PT CM, two stunning instruments designed especially for a new breed of player whose musical vision and versatility is limitless.
After releasing the all-new Pro-Mod DK24 earlier this year, Charvel now expands the line with these upgraded DK24 2PT models.
Both models feature a Dinky body, two-piece bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck with graphite reinforcement, sculpted heel, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, Luminlay side dots and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane finish. The 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets, pearloid dot inlays and Graph Tech® nut.
Available in Satin Shell Pink or Primer Gray, the Pro-Mod DK24 HSS 2PT CM delivers unbelievably full and versatile tone with an HSS pickup configuration consisting of a Custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan® Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan® Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single coil neck pickup.
Offered in Satin Orange Crush or Matte Army Drab, the Pro-Mod DK24 HSH 2PT CM packs an HSH pickup configuration consisting of a Custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan® Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan® Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck pickup.
Other premium features of these models include a five-way blade pickup switch, Stratocaster®-style speed knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH® Bourns® low-friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, recessed Gotoh® Custom 510 tremolo bridge, locking tuners, chrome hardware and more.
Charvel also announces the Limited Edition Super Stock Model 1888, a throwback to the Charvel “Model 88” from the ‘80s with modernized and innovative features.
Its classic Dinky body is fashioned from mahogany and features a beautiful Dark Brown Sunburst gloss finish. The one-piece bolt-on maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane finish, topped by a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with comfortable rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets and pearloid sharkfin inlays. A licensed Jackson® reverse pointed 6-in-line headstock completes the unique look of this Super Stock axe.
A fantastically full voice comes from an HS pickup configuration consisting of a DiMarzio® Super Distortion DP218 neck pickup and DiMarzio Super Distortion bridge pickup, both with black covers.
Other premium modern features include a three-way blade switch, domed volume and tone control knobs, Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system and black hardware.
