Scottsdale, Ariz. (July 17, 2019) – Charvel® today announces the all-new Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT CM models, as well as a pair of limited edition offerings with the Limited Edition Super Stock Model 2 and Limited Edition Super Stock SC1.
Turning modern high performance on its head, the new Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT CM and Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT CM QM are brazen instruments for progressive guitarists searching for an unparalleled spectrum of sound.
Featuring a sculpted shredder’s cut heel and a scalloped lower back bout for easy upper access to the fingerboard, the alder body in the classic Dinky™ style is paired with a graphite-reinforced bolt-on caramelized maple “speed neck.” Its 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets, Luminlay® side dots, pearloid dot inlays and Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut.
Brimming with versatility courtesy of the mini two-way toggle switch for series and parallel, these axes feature an HH pickup configuration consisting of a direct mount Custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup and direct mount Seymour Duncan® Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck pickup. The bridge pickup radiates a crisp top-end with low-end articulation, while the neck pickup has incredible range with soaring highs and silky lows.
Blending sophisticated style with assertive tone, the DK24 HH 2PT’s also offer premium modern features such as a five-way blade pickup switch, Stratocaster®-style skirt knobs for the volume (with 500K EVH® Bourns® low-friction potentiometer) and no-load tone controls, heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, Gotoh® Custom 510 recessed tremolo bridge, locking tuners, chrome hardware and more.
The Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT CM comes in several new stage-stealing finishes — Gloss Black, Matte Blue Frost, Satin Burgundy Mist or Three-Tone Sunburst, while the Pro-Mod DK24 HH 2PT CM QM features a quilt maple top cloaked in a Chlorine Burst finish.

A tonal blast from the past, the Limited Edition Super Stock Model 2 takes DNA from the original Model 2 from 1986-87 and melds it with modern enhancements.
The San Dimas®-style alder body of the Limited Edition Super Stock Model 2 is shrouded in an original Skull and Bones graphic; ideal for the take-no-prisoners rocker. The graphite-reinforced bolt-on maple neck features a scarf joint and hand-rubbed urethane back finish, while the speedy 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard has comfortable rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets and white dot inlays.
A single Seymour Duncan® TB-6 Distortion humbucking bridge pickup packs plenty of upper mid harmonics, ideal for classic rock ‘n’ roll or metal.
Simple yet fierce, this limited edition beast also includes a reverse Jackson®-licensed pointed 6-in-line headstock with Charvel logo, heavy knurled flat-top knob for the volume control, top-mount Floyd Rose® 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system, die-cast tuners, black hardware, Charvel neckplate and more.
Old-school rock ‘n’ roll DNA gets supercharged in the all-new Limited Edition Super Stock SC1, a stylish and modified for high-performance tonal machine that’s ready to conquer.
The Limited Edition Super Stock SC1 comes loaded with plenty of classic Charvel attitude. Its So Cal-style alder body sports a heavy Black Relic finish that looks like it’s been to hell and back. The bolt-on maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard have been distressed for that well-worn baseball glove feel.
Graphite reinforcement rods provide optimal stability for various climate changes, while the heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes for convenient neck relief tweaks. Built for speed, the 12”- 16” compound radius fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges, 22 jumbo frets and cream dot inlays.
Tone bases are thoroughly covered with an HS pickup configuration consisting of an EVH® Wolfgang® humbucking bridge pickup and Seymour Duncan® SLSD-1N Li’l Screamin’ Demon™ Strat® single coil-sized humbucking neck pickup. Topped with parchment covers, the EVH Wolfgang humbucker delivers sublime balance, while the Seymour Duncan SLSD-1N Li’l Screamin’ Demon Strat adds plenty of open tone with a subtle hint of glass.
