What a beautiful top on this guitar. Charvel calls this Desert Sand, but it bears no relation to the classic Fender Desert Sand from the 50s and 60s. This Charvel has a satin finished Poplar Burl top over a Mahogany body. Whatever you want to call it, we think it's wonderful. Read below for details and specs on this great Pro-Mod DK24 from Charvel.
Freshly set up in-house by our talented Guitar Tech, this guitar is dialed in and ready to create some sonic mayhem on stage with you tonight.
Loaded with premium features, this DK24 model features a sleek Dinky® body constructed from mahogany with a poplar burl top, sculpted shredder’s cut heel and scalloped lower back bout for seamless access to the upper registers. The bolt-on maple neck features graphite reinforcement for rock-solid stability, a silky-smooth hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back of the neck for sublime playability, and a conveniently located heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for neck relief tweaks on the fly. Designed for speed, the 12"-16" compound radius ebony fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets and offset white dot inlays.
This axe features an HH pickup configuration consisting of a direct mount Seymour Duncan® Full Shred™ TB-10 bridge pickup and direct mount Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro™ APH-1N neck pickup. The bridge pickup radiates a crisp top-end with low-end articulation, while the neck pickup has incredible range with soaring highs and silky lows.
Other premium modern features include a five-way blade pickup switch, dome-style knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH® Bourns® low friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, Charvel® HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge, Charvel-branded die-cast locking tuners and more.
Blending sophisticated style with assertive tone, the Pro-Mod DK24 HH HT E Mahogany with Poplar Burl comes in Desert Sand with black hardware.
