CHARVEL® ADDS NEW USA SELECT DK24 2PT MODELS
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (March 13, 2020) – Charvel® today announces the USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM and USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM QM models.
Hearkening back to Charvel’s roots and born on west coast soil, the USA DK24 HSS 2PT CM models are meticulously built by the Charvel team at the Custom Shop in Corona, California, so nothing about these high-performance axes is overlooked.
Designed for modern players with discerning tastes, these all-new instruments feature an alder Dinky™ body with a scalloped lower back bout that works in tandem with a sculpted “shredder’s cut” heel to allow for easy upper fretboard access. The bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has graphite reinforcement and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane back finish for comfortable playability.
Built for highly technical playing, a 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 stainless steel jumbo frets, pearl dot inlays, Luminlay® side dots, Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel.
The HSS pickup configuration routing consists of a custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred™ SH-10B bridge pickup, custom Seymour Duncan Flat Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and custom Seymour Duncan Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup. These powerful pickups combine for a versatile tonal force with beefed up mids and articulated, crispy highs.
Other premium modern features include a five-way blade switch, Stratocaster®-style skirt knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH® Bourns® low friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, Gotoh® Custom 510 recessed tremolo bridge with titanium saddles and thick brass block, USA made Sperzel® locking tuners, and more.
The USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM is available in Quicksilver with chrome hardware or Satin Black with gold hardware, while the USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM QM features a distinctive quilt maple top wrapped in Autumn Glow or Blue Burst with masked-off natural binding and chrome hardware.
