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. For the seasoned player who defies the status quo and demands
more from a high-performance hot rod bass, the brand-new Charvel®
Pro-Mod San Dimas® Bass PJ IV does it all by combining modern
appointments with throwback Charvel DNA.

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, the Pro-Mod San Dimas® Bass PJ IV features the
powerhouse voice of DiMarzio® pickups—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. Versatile electronics include
three-band active EQ, pickup blend control and a master volume control
with push/pull selector. The push/pull selector eliminates the risk of
losing sound due to a dead battery as a quick pull on the volume knob
bypasses the EQ’s active circuit and regains sound from the bass
without the use of battery power.
A Charvel HiMass™ bridge, Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut and opengear tuners combine for stellar tuning stability with improved note punch
This 4-string bass is presented in Metallic Black or Platinum Pearl
finishes with chrome hardware, black pickup covers and licensed
Fender® Precision Bass® headstock shape.
