OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Classic style with high-output pickups, coil-splitting and Floyd Rose tremolo.

Southern California is a hotbed of guitar innovation, from new musical styles and sounds to hot-rodded high-performance guitar designs. The Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 2H FR, the ideal instrument for dazzling high speed playing, was born and raised in this sunny environment. With scorching sound, stunning quilt-top style and grin-inducing playing feel and performance, this guitar was meant to be onstage.

A top-notch performer that’s tweaked with the features modern players need, this axe sports a pair of hot-rodded high-output Seymour Duncan JB humbucking pickups directly mounted to the body that crank out high octane rock ‘n’ roll tone with plenty of sweet overtones. The volume control conceals a push/pull coil split to have even more tonal variations on tap while the No-Load tone control operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound, letting the full natural voice of the guitar shine through.

Dive to rumbling depths or add a well-placed rising harmonic without sacrificing your tuning with the Floyd Rose FRT-O1000 double-locking recessed tremolo and FRT-O1000 locking nut—simultaneously grooving on the laser-accurate intonation. The two-piece maple neck hosts 22 jumbo frets along with a pair of graphite reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for lightning fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts while the comfortably rolled fingerboard edges provide the broken-in feel of an instrument with plenty of playing miles on it, and plenty more to go.

Charvels are designed with style in mind—after all, they call it show business—and the stunning solid top with a transparent finish and curves in all the right places is sure to dazzle the audience’s eyes. A Charvel neck plate, branded die-cast tuning machines and standard strap buttons complete the package, topped off with a spotlight-ready finish that shrugs off the rigors of the road. Ready to spawn waves of sonic bliss, and able to keep up with the most demanding playing, the Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 2H FR is a guitar that will stand the tests of time and stage. Case sold separately.

The best way I can put this is that the guitar is more than the sum of its parts. It is a true professional-quality playable axe that any good player can and should be happy with. Don't let the other reviews turn you off. Mexican-made or not, this is every bit the high-quality shredder that you'd expect from a Charvel. I couldn't be happier.

The guitar is made of high-quality maple and alder. Even the acoustic sound of the instrument (not plugged-in) is noticeably fuller than the other guitars in my collection, which both my non-musical wife and my highly musical bandmates both noticed immediately. The Specific Ocean finish is actually a metal flake finish, which isn't obvious from the pictures. Score!

The '59 / JB pickup combination is time-tested and provides great tones, and the "six-pack of sound" wiring configuration presents all the tonal combinations in an extremely intuitive way. No mini-switching, and the 3-way selector makes fast tonal changes a lot easier than a 5-way switch would. Both the '59 and the JB provide really nice coil-tapped tones that are closer to true single-coil tones than the other pickups I've owned.

The tremolo system is set up so perfectly, so smooth. It is a pleasure to use. The trem cavity is recessed, so the tremolo bar is set up to float. It is made of high-quality steel and provides great tone and sustain. This is not a cheap licensed Floyd, this is a high-quality unit, and it plays like one. The guitar came shipped from the factory and was perfectly intonated and the Floyd was perfectly parallel to the body upon arrival. Perfect!

The neck is so smooth. The finish is such a pleasant surface to play on: it doesn't stick to your hands like gloss, and it feels like an oil finish. The shape of the neck surprised me. It's shaped like a classic Strat, but it has an asymmetrical, "Wolfgang" or "Clapton" style offset, which facilitates fast playing. Not everyone will love this neck shape, but for me it's perfect.

I love this guitar.

Good guitar for intermediate user, great neck shape, and great pickups. 2016 "six pack of sounds" additions are nice. Paint work is super nice. However, overall the craftsmanship of the Charvels have unfortunately gone downhill since production moved to Mexico. I have a 2009 made-in-Japan San Dimas and the new ones are far off in quality. Specifically, the work on the fret ends along the sides is really bad (sharp edges sticking out) compared to the previous MIJ, MIA models. Also, they are slightly lighter, ever so slightly thiner, and the Floyd Rose, is also noticeably a bit less substantial than previous FR-01000's (like somewhere between the Original Floyd and a Floyd Rose Special). These should be priced in the range of the Indonesia built Jackson SDX as the quality is on that level. At the current price, these cost as much as the much higher quality MIJ had cost, yet they now don't even include a case like they used to. The new colors look killer, and I was hopeful they would be at least close in quality to the past, however, I was really disappointed once I got one in my hands.

        Comments about Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 2H FR Electric Guitar:

        This is a great playing guitar. After I had it set up ( in all honesty, very little needed to be done ), this guitar screams! The neck is incredibly fast and it has a very good feel. The pickups sing, and they sound good in any of the various combinations. The Floyd stays in tune, even after extreme use. I own 30+ quality guitars and this one is right at the top.

          Very nice guitar for the price. Very near professional quality. I have heard some youtube reviews that stated the neck on this guitar is one of the thinnest that Charvel has come out with. It is not a thin neck. I was expecting a much thinner neck. (Owner of many Charvels)

              These are better guitars than the Jacksons. I love the feel and craftsmanship. My only complaint is that I'm not a fan of the JB pickups. I prefer the distortions or the d-activator x pickups.

                Charvel is in need of some quality control in Mexico. I was super excited to play this guitar as I have heard good things but the guitar I got needed some serious fret work. Show these guys how to use a file! Super sharp ends and to add to it super high action! Come on guys get it together. Everything else on this guitar looked great but I can't even play this one.

                Comments about Charvel Pro Mod San Dimas Style 1 2H FR Electric Guitar:

                There is very little not to like about the new Charvels. The only somewhat recurring issue I hear (and experienced on my own Mexican made) is fret sprout as the sides of the neck contract in dry climates. This neck is not painted, it's oiled. Necks that only have oil are much more susceptible to humidity-related changes. They were smart enough to opt for a quartersawn two piece maple neck with graphite reinforcement. For the most part, this will lend enough stability as far as straightness/anti warp as you will ever need. It'll keep the neck straight, but what it can't help though is the contraction/drying of the wood that may lead to the ends of the frets protruding and catching your fingers. I agree that the MIM ones seem to have more of an issue with this than the MIJ did. I don't know if there is more humidity at the Mexico plant and they shrink a lot more later on or if they just aren't drying the wood as much. The actual dressing of the frets as far as leveling is insanely good. I've had zero buzz and stupid low action possible, but I did have to dress the fret ends to shorten them up a bit as the neck aged. It's not that hard to do, or not that expensive to have done and it generally only needs to be done once. Other than that, it plays as good as you could want. The wood/pickups sound hot, creamy and rich and the 1000 series Floyd is made to the same dimensional, material and hardness specs as the German made OFR. I have both and can tell ZERO difference in sound, feel or quality. Pots/electronics are top notch, as is the finish. These things are a serious bargain in my opinion.

                  This guitar is AMAZING!. The "six pack of sound" gives sooo many tonal options which is awesome when your in a gigging cover band. From Slayer to Skynyrd to Red Hot Chili Peppers all with the push/pull of a knob! Fit & finish is PERFECT. I did a minor set up to my specifics tastes. Intonation was spot on. The Rocket Red is REALLY nice & bright. I would buy this guitar again & again!!!

                      As a guitar collector I typically only bought Les Pauls, Strats, Teles and one-offs custom guitars. Being in a working classic rock band I found myself worried all the time about scratching my custom shop LPs or getting them stolen. In addition the weight was a burden for long gigs. I looked around for a "do-all" guitar that I could play all night long, not worry about damaging it and still be able to get the sounds I needed for all the different songs we play. I ordered the San Dimas hardtail in blue and was blown away by the quality of the guitar. I stopped bringing my LPs to gigs because this guitar does the job just as well. I did some setup work, got the neck the way I like it (low action) and it shreds. It may not have the pinache of playing a fancy LP or Tele or Strat but now I don't have to switch guitars between songs for different sounds because the split coils allow for a very nice Tele/Strat sound and the humbuckers do all of our heavier rock sounds justice. I love it so much that I just ordered a Neon pink San Dimas with the Trem so I have the exact same guitar in another color for songs where I need to dive. These two guitars are my professional gigging guitars and I leave my expensive customs at home where they belong. I am super impressed with Charvel, don't worry about any of the bad reviews, trust me as a working musician, these guitars are professional and extremely versatile. Plus at this price I'm never nervous about taking them into bars and clubs.

                        I researched online extensively before purchasing this guitar and I have not been disappointed. This model gives me the tone, feel, high-quality and look that best suits my needs. I considered other vendors (for similar configuration) and I believe this model offers the best value versus investment.
