Charvel Custom Shop 7-String Mahogany San Dimas Electric Guitar Natural
This 7-String Natural Oil San Dimas was built by the very talented "Red" Dave Nichols. The oil finish makes this guitar just about as fast a player as you can get, and we love the look of the maple fretboard sans inlays, which keeps the natural wood motif going throughout the entire guitar.

Charvel Custom Shop 7-String San Dimas Electric Guitar Matte Black
Looking for Charvel looks and playability, but taken down a notch in the Low End department? Here's your axe, and we think you couldn't ask for anything cooler: a 7-String San Dimas with a gunstock oil finished maple neck and a matte black finish to the body. We think the single piece of quartersawn maple looks excellent sans inlays, and the guitar is loaded with one Seymour Duncan Custom humbucker with a lone master volume for a straight "plug in and play" vibe.

Charvel Custom Shop Exclusive San Dimas Electric Guitar Koa Natural
Tone, Feel, and Performance. What else do you need from your axe? The Charvel® Natural Series San Dimas guitars created by The Music Zoo deliver all three in spades. This exclusive line of USA-Made Custom Shop Charvel® San Dimas guitars is designed to deliver huge bang for the buck. Read on for the whole story behind the Music Zoo Naturals:

In 2006 The Music Zoo's owner and vintage Charvel aficianado Tommy Colletti got on a plane to California and sat down with The Charvel Custom Shop to talk about a guitar he wanted to build. The idea was simple. No paint but instead a hand-rubbed, oil-finished body. One pickup, one knob. No frills, all business, and a world-class level of quality that The Music Zoo's customers would demand. Charvel had recently joined forces with Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, and the build quality of the new Charvel product was stellar. Plus, we were all excited that Charvel guitars were once again being produced with the famous Stratocaster headstock, just like the Charvels from the late '70s/early 80s. The new Charvel necks, with an 1 11/16" nut width, and the skunk stripe on the back look and feel the part of their vintage predecessors. The time was right, and the San Dimas Natural Series from Charvel and The Music Zoo was born.

The bodies of the Natural Series guitars are what gives them monster tone. We spec'd high-quality Mahogany, Swamp Ash, or Koa; all three are fantastic tonewoods. Without thick layers of paint, the wood can breathe and resonate, resulting in a louder guitar acoustically, and a more responsive guitar plugged into your amp. The hand-rubbed oil finish is durable and brings out the beauty of the wood, and brings down the cost of the guitar to boot. The solid brass volume knob is another throwback to the original San Dimas.

The performance: Depending on your needs, the Charvel Natural Series San Dimas comes with either a vintage-style NOS brass tremolo or a rock-solid Floyd Rose with locking nut. This custom model comes with Seymour Duncan Custom 5 humbucker in the bridge and a Quarter Pounder single coil pickup in the neck position. Control is kept simple with a just single volume knob and a 3-way toggle switch.

The single pickup is a Seymour Duncan Custom 5, a versatile pickup that shows off the expanded frequencies of the oiled bodies while still providing enough gain to melt faces. After the initial run of Naturals was such a success, we expanded the original "one pickup/one knob" concept to dual humbucker configurations, often a Seymour Duncan Custom 5 at the bridge and a Jazz at the neck, and Hum/Single, often using a Cool Rails single coil at the neck. These configurations still keep it simple with a just single volume knob and a 3-way toggle switch.

Charvel Custom Shop San Dimas Rosewood Flat Top Electric Guitar - Used
Pre-owned, but you wouldn’t know it. This 2009 Custom Shop Charvel guitar is a San Dimas model with a mahogany body and a unique, flat, oil-finished rosewood top with mother-of-pearl binding that looks like a thick slab of chocolate, albeit chocolate doesn’t have the magnificent patterns and striking grain of this rosewood. The bolt-on neck and its headstock are also rosewood, adorned with a birds-eye maple fretboard and maple skunk stripe down the middle. One Seymour Duncan TB pickup and volume control is all ya get, but hey—we’re talking San Dimas. A Floyd Rose tremolo system and chrome Schaller tuners round out the features. It’s a great playing and sounding guitar; bright with a big acoustic presence and with a light action that lends itself easily to tapping and all that stuff. Noteworthy are the harmonics that pour from this instrument; bending the top strings in the lower registers evoked amazing overtones. Overall, she’s a visually stunning with wonderful musicality. If chocolate could sing Puccini, here’s proof positive. Comes with original hardshell case, a tremolo arm, and hang tag.

This guitar is a workhorse, with both excellent playability and tone.
