Charvel launches its new flagship USA Select series with ‘throw-back specs’ designed to replicate its 1980’s heyday. The Charvel San Dimas Style 1 HSS HT is a hardtail model made in the US in a range of new satin finishes, 3 DiMarzio pickups and a 5-way super blade…

The Charvel San Dimas Style 1 HSS HT taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for a sleek, ferocious guitar with “old-school throwback” specs our high-performance players have been clamoring for, such as ’80s-style body perimeters, finely shaped neck profiles, fast compound radius fingerboards with rolled edges, and more…

The alder San Dimas Style 1 HSS HT body is complemented by a one-piece quartersawn maple neck with one-way vintage-style bullet truss rod, and a 22 jumbo fret rosewood (white dot inlay) compound radius fingerboard with rolled edges and a bone nut. Pure tone pours from a DiMarzio® DP100 Super Distortion bridge pickup and DiMarzio® DP-116 HS2™ neck and middle pickups, with five-way “super” blade pickup switching that delivers the bridge pickup only (position 1), bridge pickup inner coil and middle pickup (position 2), bridge pickup inner coil and neck pickup (position 3), neck and middle pickups (position 4) and neck pickup only (position 5). Other premium features include a single control knob (master volume), side-mounted “football” output jack, black hardware, string-through-body bridge.
