Charvel USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM – Black Satin
Weight: 3.179 kilo
The Charvel USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM is an exquisite USA-made instrument designed for modern players with discerning tastes. Born on west coast soil, the USA DK24 is meticulously built by the Charvel team at the Custom Shop in Corona, California, so nothing about this high-performance axe is overlooked.
The Dinky® alder body is paired with a bolt-on caramelized maple “speed” neck with graphite reinforcement, sculpted heel and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane back finish for comfortable playability. The back of the body features a scalloped lower back bout that works in tandem with the shredder’s cut heel to allow for easy upper fretboard access.
Built for highly-technical playing, its 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 stainless steel jumbo frets, pearl dot inlays and a Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut. Luminlay® side dots provide fretboard guidance even on the darkest of stages, while a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes for quick and painless neck relief tweaks.
An HSS pickup configuration consisting of a custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred™ TB-10 bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and custom Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup proves to be 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.
Sporting sophisticated style, sound and craftmanship, the USA Select DK24 HSS 2PT CM is available in Quicksilver with chrome hardware or Satin Black with gold hardware.
