Charvel Pro-Mod DK22 SSS 2PT CM, Caramelized Maple Fingerboard, Gloss Black
Charvel Pro-Mod DK22 SSS 2PT Overview.
Charvel continues to up the ante for modern high performance combined with standout style and full-spectrum tone with the Pro-Mod DK22 SSS 2PT CM, a sleek new instrument designed especially for a new breed of player whose musical vision and versatility knows no boundaries. Featuring a sculpted shredder's cut heel and scalloped lower back bout for comfortable and unencumbered upper fret access, the Dinky alder body is paired with a graphite-reinforced bolt-on caramelized maple neck for rock-solid stability. The baked neck has a silky-smooth hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back for sublime playability, Luminlay side dots to guide your way along the fretboard on dark stages and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and painless neck relief tweaks. Designed for high-speed playing, its 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets, pearloid dot inlays and Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut.
Routed for an SSS pickup configuration, this axe combines a Seymour Duncan Custom Hot Rails Strat SHR-1B humbucking bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup for plenty of glassy, vintage-style timbre with classic Strat chime.
The Pro-Mod DK22 SSS 2PT CM hosts other premium modern features including a five-way blade pickup switch, Stratocaster-style skirt knobs for the volume (500K EVH Bourns low friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, Gotoh Custom 510 tremolo bridge, die-cast tuners and more.
Designed with head-turning style, the all-new DK22 SSS 2PT CM is available in Electric Blue, Gloss Black and Pharaohs Gold with chrome hardware. The Gloss Black model features matte black pickup bobbins and black control knobs, while the Electric Blue and Pharaohs Gold models feature matte parchment pickup bobbins and parchment knobs.
