What Haworth Guitars say:
The Charvel Joe Duplantier Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 Electric Guitar is a classic Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 model by Charvel.
At Haworth Guitars we love the Charvel Joe Duplantier Pro-Mod San Dimas 2 Guitar's ebony compound radius fingerboard, 22 jumbo frets, comfortable mahogany neck and Charvel locking machine heads as well as the Duncan Designed HB-103 Humbucker pickups.
What Charvel has to say:
Taking their name from the original Japanese pronunciation of Godzilla, French avant-metal quartet Gojira has cemented itself as one of the paramount metal acts of the new millennium.
Led by singer, vocalist, and principal songwriter Joe Duplantier, the band has always dealt in extremes — uncovering light in darkness and finding beauty in heaviness while also searching to expand the sonic palette. Charvel proudly honours Duplantier in 2017 with a new, distinctively elegant and ferocious signature model worthy of those musical pursuits.
The Joe Duplantier Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH is designed with the latest in Charvel high performance, Duplantier's preferred style and specs, and monster tone equal to his band’s name from dual Duncan Designed™ HB humbucking pickups. The San Dimas Style 2 body is crafted out of nato wood with a specially contoured heel for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, while the bolt-on nato neck with graphite reinforcement has a smooth oiled back finish and convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt adjust.
Other premium features include a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, three-way toggle pickup switching and single knurled control knob (volume) in special placement slightly back from playing position, Charvel compound radius compensated bridge with anchored tailpiece, Charvel locking tuners and black hardware. Available in Satin White with black body binding and a licensed Fender® Telecaster® headstock.
