Smoking New Charvel Axes to Add to Your Arsenal

From reviving throwback classics to creating modern wonders, our product team is always up to something out of the ordinary here at Charvel. Here’s a quick look at seven of our newest axes.

Limited Edition Super Stock Model 2

The Limited Edition Super Stock Model 2 doesn’t skimp on attitude.

Throwing it back to the original Model 2 from ’86-’87, a single Seymour Duncan TB-6 Distortion humbucking bridge pickup lurks under the wicked Skull and Bones graphic and handles any flavor of hard rock or metal with plenty of upper mid harmonics and high output — without cutting on clarity even when under heavy distortion.

This take-no-prisoners axe is also loaded with plenty of enhancements. The graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck is sturdy enough to handle any abuse you throw at it, while the sleek 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has rolled edges for fret dexterity. A top-loaded Floyd Rose 1000 series double-locking tremolo, single heavy knurled flat-top volume control knob and reverse Jackson-licensed black headstock completes the deal.

Limited Edition Super Stock SC1

The Limited Edition Super Stock SC1 boasts plenty of Charvel attitude. It’s Black Relic So Cal body with white pickguard looks likes its enjoyed a well-played life on the road, while your hands will feel right at home on the distressed bolt-on maple neck with pau ferro fingerboard.

The HS pickup configuration in the Super Stock SC1 supercharges your tone with an EVH Wolfgang humbucker in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan SLSD-1N Li’l Screamin’ Demon Strat single coil-sized humbucker in the neck. The result? Sublime balance with plenty of open tone and a touch of glass.

Despite its vintage looks, this Super Stock model has a key modernized feature that’s proved to be clutch for touring artists – a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel that makes for seriously quick and easy neck relief tweaks.

Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT’s

A smashing success, the Pro-Mod DK24 now has an HH pickup configuration added to its lineup with brand-new features and a new array of stunning finishes, including this classic Gloss Black finish seen above ^ that’s right for any occasion.

On all new DK24 HH 2PT models, a direct mount Custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup and direct mount Seymour Duncan® Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck pickup take you from moody jazz to crunchy thrash and everything in between. The mini two-way toggle series/parallel switch splits the pickups, adding even more flavors to your sonic palette, while the five-way blade switch, volume knob with 500K EVH® Bourns® low-friction pot and no-load tone control give you maximum authority over your voice.

The bolt-on caramelized maple speed neck is topped with a 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard, which adds to the sophistication of these Pro-Mod instruments. Rolled edges allow for maximum playing comfort at brisk speeds, while Luminlay® side dots light your way even on the darkest stages. All 2PT models feature a recessed custom 510 Gotoh® bridge.
