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.
The Pro-Mod San Dimas® Bass PJ V blends the powerhouse voice of
DiMarzio® (just like our original Charvel bass guitars) with an all-new
Charvel five-string pickup —an Area J™ DP551 at the bridge offers
well-rounded punch while the Charvel 5-String Split-Coil P in the middle
delivers classic warmth, kick and clear tone. 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 and sustain.
