Bass Guitars > Charvel Guitars Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ V, Caramelized Maple Fingerboard - Platinum Pearl
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 V does it all by combining modern appointments with throwback Charvel DNA. 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 the 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. This 5-string, 34"-scale bass is presented in Metallic Black or Platinum Pearl finishes with chrome hardware, black pickup covers and licensed Fender® Precision Bass® headstock shape.
