Charvel USA Select San Dimas Style 1 HSS FR Overview by GAK:

The perfect modern rock guitar. Crafted in the USA from the finest materials and hardware it is everything you need and nothing you do not.

Charvel launches its new flagship USA Select series with the San Dimas® Style 1 HSS FR. It taps straight into original-era Charvel DNA for a sleek, ferocious model with “old-school throwback” specs our high-performance players have been clamoring for, such as ’80s-style body perimeters, finely shaped neck profiles, fast compound radius fingerboards with rolled edges, non-recessed Floyd Rose® bridges, and more.

The alder San Dimas® Style 1 HSS FR body is complemented by a one-piece quartersawn maple neck with one-way vintage-style bullet truss rod, and a 22-fret rosewood 
(white dot inlay) or maple (black dot inlay) compound radius fingerboard with rolled edges. Pure tone pours from a DiMarzio® DP100F Super Distortion bridge pickup and DiMarzio® DP-116 HS2™ neck and middle pickups, with five-way “super” blade pickup switching that delivers the bridge pickup only (position 1), bridge pickup inner coil and middle pickup (position 2), bridge pickup inner coil and neck pickup (position 3), neck and middle pickups (position 4) and neck pickup only (position 5).

Other premium features include a single control knob (master volume), side-mounted “football” output jack, black hardware, Floyd Rose® Original non-recessed bridge with 37mm block, and more.
