Item Description


This excellent pre-owned Charvel San Dimas is part of our Music Zoo Exclusive Carbonized series, made of a carbonized 2-piece black ash body with a carbonized 1-piece flamed red maple neck. Carbonizing is a process which draws the moisture out of the wood, making the guitar a way more stable instrument when it comes to changes in the temperature and humidity, as well as making it an incredibly light weight instrument.

Other features on the guitar are a 25.5" scale length, 1-11/16" nut width, 22 jumbo frets ,a San Dimas neck shape with a gunstock oil finish, maple dot inlays, brass side dots, a Seymour Duncan SH-2n in the neck with a Custom 5 in the bridge, a brass NOS bridge, brass dome knobs, low friction pots, and Legacy tuners.

Part of the carbonizing process makes the wood of the body a bit softer and more susceptible to scratches and scuffs, so as the guitar has been played it has been left with pickmarks around the body, and scuffs around the body, sides,and cutaways. There is nothing rough to the touch, and there is no fretwear or major dings on the guitar that would hinder playability. The previous owner removed the four middle screws from the bridge, to give the tremolo a looser feel to it. These screws are not included with the guitar, though they are easily replaceable. The ash body has some beautiful grain to it, and the wood gives the tone a nice bump to the midrange. Its a fantastic, fast-playing shredder that isn't much like anything else out there.

Includes: Hardshell Case, Tremolo Arm, and Paperwork
