Charvel launches its new flagship USA Select series with the San Dimas® Style 2 HH FR. It taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for a sleek, ferocious model with “old-school throwback” specs that high-performance players have been clamoring for, such as ’80s-style body perimeters, finely shaped neck profiles, fast compound radius fingerboards with rolled edges, non-recessed Floyd Rose® bridges, and more…

The alder San Dimas® Style 2 HH FR body is complemented by a one-piece quartersawn maple neck with one-way vintage-style bullet truss rod, and a 22-fret rosewood (white dot inlay) or maple (black dot inlay) compound radius fingerboard with rolled edges. Pure tone pours from a DiMarzio® DP100F Super Distortion bridge pickup and DiMarzio® DP-151 PAF PRO neck pickup, with five-way “super” blade pickup switching that delivers the bridge pickup only (position 1), bridge pickup inner coil (position 2), inner coils of both pickups (position 3), neck pickup outer coil (position 4), neck pickup only (position 5).

Other premium features include a single control knob (master volume), side-mounted “football” output jack, black hardware, Floyd Rose® Original non-recessed bridge with 37mm block, and more.
