NAMM 2019 : Charvel announces the USA Select DK24 HH 2PT CM

Sweetwater

For Winter NAMM 2019 Charvel announces the brand-new USA Select DK24 HH 2PT CM model.

The CHARVEL USA SELECT DK24 HH 2PT CM is an exquisite USA-made instrument designed for modern players with discerning tastes. Hearkening back to Charvel’s roots and born on west coast soil, the USA DK24 2PT CM is meticulously built by the Charvel team at the Custom Shop in Corona, Calif., so nothing about this high-performance axe is overlooked. 

Wrapped in either an OXBLOOD or SATIN WHITE finish, its Dinky alder body with sculpted heel is paired with a two-piece bolt-on quartersawn caramelized maple “speed” neck with graphite reinforcement and a silky-smooth hand-rubbed urethane back finish for comfortable playability. The back of the body also features a scalloped lower back bout that works in tandem with the shredder 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. 

Full, rich and versatile tone comes from an HH pickup configuration consisting of a direct mount custom Seymour Duncan Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup and direct mount custom Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck pickup. The Full Shred bridge pickup soars with a bold and articulate humbucker voice, while the Alnico II Pro neck pickup delivers warm, buttery vintage tone.

Other premium modern features include a five-way blade switch, two-way toggle (series/parallel) 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, chrome hardware and hardshell Charvel case.

About the Author: French by birth but Texan by heart, I had different careers in multiple areas that don’t really make sense when they’re all laid down on my resume. Amongst them I’m a former military officer (mainly confidential stuff I can’t talk about) — I’m a former network architect (the stuff with switches, routers, optical fibers, satellites and wireless things that allow people to be connected) — I’m a former R&D engineer and product designer (mainly for electronics instruments in the Music Industry) — I’m also a former sound engineer that worked in professional recording studios (but nobody cares about that anymore) — and I even thought once in my life I was someone almost important doing things almost awesome... Now I’m just a professional amateur spreading my 2 cents online about anything and everything to anyone with too much time in their hands — and if you’re reading this bio, you might be one of them that just wasted 2mn of your life you will never get back. Sorry...
