What Haworth Guitars say:
The Charvel Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard is a quality Dinky Pro-Mod model by Charvel.
At Haworth Guitars we love the Charvel Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK Electric Guitar's Floyd Rose Tremolo, Maple compound radius fingerboard and 22 jumbo frets as well as the powerful Fishman Fluence Classic pickups.
What Charvel has to say:
Laugh all you want while headbanging along to Steel Panther’s satirically swaggering take on Reagan-era Sunset Strip glam metal, but there’s just no arguing with the ferociously slamming chops of guitarist Russ “Satchel” Parrish. Simply put, nobody puts 1987 into today like Parrish and his metalloid feline cohorts, and Charvel is excited to deliver a huge horns-up in the tiger-striped form of the Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK Yellow Bengal.
The instrument has an alder Dinky™ body with sharper-radius top edges and a flamboyantly fluorescent Yellow Bengal finish. Of special note are the two Fishman® Fluence Classic humbucking pickups, which share a single volume control knob with special push/pull dual voice activation.
Using this control, the PRF-CHB-NB1 neck pickup delivers ideal-but-elusive vintage PAF humbucking neck pickup tone with just the right dynamics and output (voice one), or a Fluence-exclusive neck tone with clear and airy chime, unreal high end, highly vocal midrange and tight lows (voice two).
Similarly, the PRF-CHB-BB1 bridge pickup delivers ideal vintage PAF humbucking tone calibrated for perfect output (voice one), or quintessential hot-rodded humbucking bridge tone without all the baggage (voice two). You get the idea—it sounds %$#@& huge.
The two-piece bolt-on maple neck has a Fender® Stratocaster® headstock with Charvel-branded die-cast tuners, graphite reinforcement and heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel, and a Charvel neck plate.
Atop that is a compound-radius maple fingerboard (12”-16”) with 22 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays. Other features include a three-way toggle pickup switch, rear-body “football” output jack, Floyd Rose® FRT-O2000 double-locking two-point tremolo bridge, and more.
