It’s January, and that means tons of new guitar-related product announcements. We’ve already seen massive new lineups from ESP, EVH, Jackson, Ibanez and Gretsch, and now Charvel is getting in on the action.
Charvel’s Pro-Mod San Dimas range has until now been composed purely of electric guitars, but the company has added two basses to the lineup for 2021. Meet the Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ IV and Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass JJ V.
Each of these new basses is constructed of an alder body, bolt-on caramelized maple slim-C speed neck with graphite reinforcement and a hand-rubbed satin urethane back finish, and a 20-fret 12″-16″ rolled-edge caramelized maple fingerboard with cream dot inlays.
Other features present on both models include Luminlay side dots, a Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut, DiMarzio pickups controlled via master volume and blend controls and a three-band active EQ, a Charvel HiMass bridge, open-gear tuners, oversized strap buttons and licensed Fender Precision Bass headstock shape.
Pickup-wise, the Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ IV sports a DiMarzio Model J DP123 bridge pickup and Model P DP122 middle pickup, while the Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass JJ V features a DiMarzio Area J DP551 bridge pickup and Area J DP550 middle pickup.
Prices and finishes available for each of the models are as follows:
- Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ IV – $899.99, available in Lime Green Metallic and Mystic Blue
- Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass JJ V – $999.99, available in Lambo Green Metallic and Candy Apple Red
