Miss May I stands at the pinnacle of modern U.S. metalcore, and Charvel is proud to honour the formidably fast, aggressive and melodic fret work of Aufdemkampe with this all-new model bearing his name.
“A buddy of mine convinced me to play pair of Charvel guitars on Warped Tour a while back, and I was hooked.” said Aufdemkampe. “Charvel has the looks and the playability that make them great guitars, as well as the team that backs it. For me it was a no brainer, and I haven’t looked back since.”
Aufdemkampe’s signature SD24 features a classic San Dimas® body fashioned from mahogany that is finished in sultry Trans Red with chrome hardware. The two-piece bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck has a graphite reinforcement, angled heel, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane finish, topped by a 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard with comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays.
Ferocious tone comes from a special HS pickup configuration combining a Fender® Texas Special single-coil neck pickup with a Seymour Duncan® Distortion SH-6 bridge pickup.
Other premium modern features include a three-way rotary pickup switch, domed volume and tone control knobs, momentary kill switch, Charvel® HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge, locking tuners and more.
