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 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.

Charvel Custom Shop Exclusive Carbonized 160-Year-Old Pine San Dimas Electric Guitar
This Charvel Custom Shop 160 Year Old Pine San Dimas is one of a Music Zoo exclusive run. Each of these guitars features a body crafted from old-growth 160 year old Pine. This old-growth wood is considerably stiffer than new growth White Pine. It is very light weight and produces a clean and clear tone that also has a distinct "oomph" with a good amount of lower mid-range that makes the guitar really cut. These guitars feature two direct mounted Seymour Duncan humbuckers, Legacy crown head tuners, a light oil finish and a locking Floyd Rose tremolo. The Maple necks have been carbonized, a revolutionary process to stabilize the moisture content of the wood. All of these features add up to a guitar that is sure to inspire and amaze.

Charvel Custom Shop Exclusive San Dimas Koa Natural Series Electric Guitar
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.

No frills, all business, and a world-class level of quality that The Music Zoo's customers would demand. The bodies of the Natural Series guitars are what gives them monster tone. The hand-oiled Koa body looks stunning while providing a beautiful, airy tone.

Charvel Custom Shop Exclusive San Dimas Mahogany Natural Series
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, starting at just $1,695.00. 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. 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.
