Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT M Sean Long, Maple, Gloss Black
Sheffield metalcore act While She Sleeps has been tearing it up for over 15 years now on the metal scene with a DIY approach, amassing a hardcore audience across the UK with an intense and highly-acclaimed energetic live show.
Founding member, guitarist and primary songwriter Sean Long is a perfectionist with an artistic spirit, and his intense riffs, searing tone, and no-holds-barred approach to the instrument is highly admired within the guitar community.
The all-new Sean Long Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT M is a formidable model designed to keep up with his high-speed playing, scorching sound and sinister, yet eccentric style.
Its San Dimas alder body is coupled with a bolt-on maple neck with a pair of graphite-reinforcement rods to resist bending and warping under environmental stresses. The speed neck profile is designed for blazing-fast playing and completely unhindered position shifts, while the rolled fingerboard edges and hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish provide a comfortable, broken-in feel. The neck also hosts a slick 12" -16" compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, durable Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut, Luminlay side dots for fretboard guidance in the dark, and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and convenient neck relief tweaks.
This axe features an HH pickup configuration loaded with active and innovative EMG pickups geared towards modern players. The EMG 57 bridge pickup evokes an unmistakably PAF quality with plenty of headroom and punch for unparalleled definition and presence, while an EMG 66 neck pickup provides the warm, smooth mid-range and expansive lows along with clarity in the upper register.
Keeping things simple control-wise, Long went with a three-way pickup blade switch and a single dome-style volume knob. The instrument is also equipped with a Charvel HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge, designed for improved intonation and enhanced sustain and resonance.
Sure to be noticed on metal stages across the globe, Long’s Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 1 HH HT M is cloaked in a durable Gloss Black finish, complete with neon yellow and black pickup covers, black hardware and Fender Strat headstock.
