For the seasoned player who defies the status quo and demands more from a high-performance hot rod bass, these brand-new Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass models do it all by combining modern appointments with throwback Charvel DNA.
The sleek alder body shape is a familiar one—straight from the original Charvel San Dimas basses of late 1970s, with the deeper cutaway that gave adventurous bassists effortless upper-register access. The super-thin bolt-on maple Charvel speed neck is crafted in the original style, with a gorgeous caramelized treatment, graphite reinforcement and heel-mount truss rod wheel for easy adjustment. The 12"-16" compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard gradually flattens from nut to heel for fast, smooth playing, and has rolled edges, 20 jumbo frets and Luminlay side dots.
And like the originals, these models feature the powerhouse voice of DiMarzio pickups. The Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ IV has a Model J at the bridge for well-rounded punch and a Model P in the middle for warm and fat tone with a mid-range growl when pushed. The Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass JJ V features an Area J DP551 pickup in the bridge and an Area J DP550 pickup in the middle that combine for well-balanced tone with warmth, sustain and clarity. Versatile electronics include master volume, pickup blend and active three-band active EQ, while a Charvel HiMass bridge, Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut and open-gear tuners combine for stellar tuning stability with improved note punch and sustain.
The 4-string, 34" scale Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ IV is presented in electrifying Lime Green Metallic and Mystic Blue finishes with chrome hardware and cream pickup covers, while the 5-string, 35"-scale Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass JJ V is offered in Lambo Green Metallic and Candy Apple Red finishes with gold hardware and cream pickup covers. Both models are topped with a licensed Fender Precision Bass headstock shape.
