Cameron Cooper is back with a new YouTube review of the Charvel Pro-Mod DK24 HSH 2PT CM in Satin Orange Crush with a rundown of the axe’s premium features and clear, crisp tone.
“[Charvel] nailed everything,” raves Cooper. “The body contouring, fit, finish, feel, sound. They are really brilliant, all-around guitars.”
The DK24 HSH packs a wallop with a Seymour Duncan® Custom Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup, Seymour Duncan® Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan® Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck pickup. Cooper demonstrates the guitar’s versatility, playing through a spectrum of genres, including jazz and finger-style.
“Overall, it captures some Tele sounds, some Strat sounds… the heavy rock, full humbucker goodness,” says Cooper as he tosses up horns.

Cooper kicked off his review with a demo of the DK24’s versatile tones. A Custom Seymour Duncan® Full Shred SH-10B bridge pickup delivered crystal clear warm notes while a Seymour Duncan® Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle pickup and Seymour Duncan® Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickup pack plenty of bouncy, Strat-like tones.
After the quick tone demo, Cooper ran through the DK24’s specs and expressed a particular love for the back body contouring, which features a carved belly cut that comfortably hugs the player’s body, as well as the baked caramelized maple neck and fingerboard.
“For those of you who have never owned caramelized maple before, it’s an experience to behold,” said Cooper. “A cooked maple neck is… completely impervious to climatic changes, all of the moisture is sucked out of it when it is cooked. In terms of feel, it is unbelievably comfortable. [The neck] feels familiar as soon as you try it.”
His bottom-line conclusion?
“[Charvel] has done it again, guys. It is a truly amazing guitar, super high quality, a really amazing instrument,” raved Cooper.
