A Look at the Charvel DK24 2 PT CM HSS & HSH Pro Mod Electric Guitars
CATEGORY: Product News
Since the late 1970's Charvel has been producing guitars, that the be blunt, rock! This year they introduced a new DK24 Pro Mod that not only rocks but has a refined elegance about it that will make any player smile.
Today we are taking a look at two new DK24 Pro Mod models, . Both of them start with an Alder Dinky body with a heel cut to provide the ultimate in comfort and accessibility. The Dinky body shape is a classic and has been a favorite of hard rock guitarists for years. The scalloped lower bout and "shredder's" heel cut are the cherry on the cake.
Attached via a 4-bolt system is a 24 fret (yup, two full octaves) caramelized maple neck and fretboard. The bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement, a hand-rubbed urethane finish on the back, Luminlay side dots and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel. Its 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard has comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets, pearloid dot inlays, and Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut.
The carmelized (or as other companies say, roasted) maple neck adds strength to the neck and discourages bowing while adding a unique aesthetic appeal.
The new DK24 Pro Mod comes in your choice of two different pickup configurations, HSH or HSS. Both models exclusively use Seymour Duncan pickups.
The HSH model features a Seymour Duncan Custom Full Shred in the bridge, with a Custom Flat Strat pickup in the middle and an Alnico II Pro in the neck. The HSH DK24 Pro Mod id finished in either Matte Olive Drab or Satin Orange Crush.
The HSS model also has a Custom Full Shred pickup in the bridge but sports a Custom Flat Strat Pickup in the middle and neck position. The HSS model gives you the choice of Satin Shell Pink or Primer Gray finishes.
These guitars rock and not in a super flashy way, but in a refined modern luxury sort of way. From the super silky caramelized neck to the Shredder's heel cut, these guitars are made for guitarists who want big tone and a neck that flys. While these guitars are made for the heavy rock guitarist, it is not a far stretch to see a blues-rock guitarist also falling in love with this model.
