Ten Killer Pro-Mod Style 2’s Make their Debut

Posted on February 2nd, 2017 by Morgan Brunner


In 2016, Charvel introduced an upgraded collection of amped up Pro-Mod Style 1 guitars that shook up the lineup with all-new features. This year, Charvel continues to wreak havoc with a new lineup of all-new Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 guitars featuring a variety of finishes with options including ash, alder or okoume bodies, hardtail or Floyd Rose® bridges, 6-or 7-strings,  rosewood or maple fingerboards and a left-handed version.

Here’s a quick breakdown of all 10 variations:

Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH HT M Ash

Showing off the beauty of the ash wood in a Natural finish, this guitar features a two-piece bolt-on maple neck with graphite reinforcement rods, a 12”-16” compound radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and offset dot inlays, a convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt-adjust, Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups, a push/pull coil split volume control, No-Load tone control, a Charvel® HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge and a licensed Fender® Stratocaster® headstock.

Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2-7 HH HT Ash
