Charvel Custom San Dimas Mahogany Metal Mod 6 Str
This Charvel Custom guitar is absolutely built for metal. Most notably it comes with two Bare Knuckle Warpig humbucker pickups with black Battle-Worn covers. These pickups were designed to be an "All-out extreme metal humbucker capable of seriously dark and saturated tones" as Bare Knuckle describes. There's a distinct emphasis on bass and mids, and less highs. The guitar is very much a mahogany-bodied San Dimas with the distinction of having a maple neck, gorgeous ebony fretboard and 22 jumbo, stainless steel frets. Perhaps simple in design and aesthetic, this is a sophisticated guitar capable of a wide musical pallete involving high-performance guitar playing--from jazz to fusion to metal.

Charvel Custom San Dimas Nitro Aged Electric Guitar Dakota Red
When Music Zoo owner Tommy Colletti sat down with the Charvel Custom Shop to design the "Ultimate" San Dimas that would blend both old and new features into one amazing instrument, he probably didn't imagine that it would turn out this well! The neck is based on a 3D-scanned model from Tommy's beloved 1980 San Dimas for a naturally played-in feel in a new neck, with rolled shoulders for extra comfort. The brass side dots and Pearl position markers look gorgeous against the dark Ebony fingerboard. What really makes this guitar special, however, is the aged Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish. Classic San Dimases (like Tommy's 1980 model) were finished in a durable polyurethane gloss for resilience. But the Dakota Red Nitro on this guitar has been specially aged for a well-loved and well-worn look that perfectly matches the comfortable neck. The dual DiMarzio humbuckers and three-way switch give you access to tons of hard rock and heavy metal tones, and the single Volume control lets you pull back for rhythm or crank up for lead!
