Player's Perspective

This Charvel HSS San Dimas in Satin Plum is a lean, mean purple machine with an understated yet striking look. Charvel brings a level of prestige in their USA Select line to the San Dimas model, and the quality is evident everywhere from the '80s-accurate body shape, quartersawn maple neck with hand-rolled fretboard edges (super comfortable!), and the calibrated DiMarzio pickup set featuring a Super Distortion in the bridge and powerful HS-2 single coils in the neck and middle. The players here at the shop also dig the fact that this particular San Dimas is a hardtail, which makes for no-fuss string changes and excellent tuning stability.

For a great hard-rock axe with unparalleled quality and versatility, check out this hardtail San Dimas.
