Summer NAMM 2019: Charvel unveils fresh Pro-Mod Dinkys, limited-edition models

Something for new- and old-school players alike.

The Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT quilt maple top version in Chlorine Burst

Charvel has debuted the Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT as well as two limited-edition axes: the Super Stock Model 2 and Super Stock SC1. Here are the details:

Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT

The DK24 HH 2PT is designed for progressive guitarists demanding high performance. It comes in both standard and quilted maple top versions.

Both variants feature a Dinky style alder body, a bolt-on caramelized maple ‘speed’ neck as well as a sculpted cut heel tailored to shredders. Joining these in the tonewood department is a 12 to 16-inch compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard.

Each DK24 HH 2PT is loaded with a pair of Seymour Duncans, including a Full Shred SH-10B at the bridge and an Alnico II Pro APH-1N at the neck. The bridge pup is voiced for sparkling top-end while its neck counterpart supplies “soaring highs and silky lows”, according to Charvel. Both humbuckers are wired to master volume and tone controls, which are represented by Strat-style skirt knobs.

Rounding off both versions’ features is a Gotoh Custom 510 recessed tremolo bridge, locking tuners and chrome hardware.

The standard version lists at £899, while the quilt maple top version lists at £939.

Limited-edition Super Stock Model 2

As its name suggests, this special edition piece is inspired by Charvel’s original Model 2 which surfaced between 1986 to 1987.

The 2019 Model 2 features a San Dimas-shaped alder body that’s decked in the original Skull and Bones graphic. It also features some modern touches, including a graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck as well as a slick 12 to 16-inch compound radius ebony fingerboard.

For electronics, Charvel has gone with a single Seymour Duncan TB-6 Distortion humbucker at the bridge. Offering a great deal of upper- and mid-harmonics, this pup fits right into the wheelhouse of rock and metal players alike.

Completing the menacing look is a Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system, die-cast tuners and black hardware.

Lists at £999.

Limited Edition Super Stock SC1

Like the Model 2, the SC1 combines classic rock ‘n’ roll vibes with modern appointments. It’s classic features include a So Cal-style alder body as well as distressed contours on the neck and fingerboard for a well-worn feel. Modern features, on the other hand, include sturdy graphite reinforcement neck rods along with a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel that facilitates easy tweaking of neck relief.

The SC1 derives its tone from a HS pickup configuration of an EVH Wolfgang humbucker at the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SLSD-1N Li’l Screamin’ Demon single-coil at the neck. Tone-wise, the Wolfgang supplies great balance, while the single-coil offers “open tone[s]” that are a touch glassy.

Last but not least, the axe’s heavy Black Relic finish and white pickguard combine for a classic Strat-like appeal.

Lists at £1,139.
