Featuring a sculpted shredder's cut heel and scalloped lower back bout for maximum playing enjoyment, the alder Dinky™ body is capped with a poplar burl top that makes a bold statement in a Purple Sunset finish with black hardware. The “speed” neck features a silky-smooth hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back for sublime playability, and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and painless neck relief tweaks. Built for fast playing speeds, the 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets and black offset dot inlays.
An HSS pickup configuration consisting of a Seymour Duncan® Full Shred™ SH-10B bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat® SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup hits with plenty of focused humbucker grit and springy vintage snap. Dial in the tonal spectrum that best suits your playing with five-way blade switching, single volume control and a no-load tone control that operates like a standard tone control from positions one through nine, removing itself from the circuit at position ten for transparent sound that lets the full natural voice of the guitar shine through.
This modernized instrument is also equipped with a recessed Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system for superior tuning stability and radical pitch-raising capability.
Condition: This is a brand new BLEM DK24 HSS FR M Poplar in Purple Sunset. The reason this is a BLEM is because of 2 small heel cracks in the finish that we repaired (see photos, can't even really see them). We refilled the cracks and buffed them out so they're smooth to the touch. Enjoy 10% off for these minor details! It comes equipped with our Pro-Tech setup and Charvel’s warranty.
