Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass JJ V, Candy Apple Red
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 JJ 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.
And like the originals, the Pro-Mod San Dimas® Bass JJ V features the powerhouse voice of DiMarzio® pickups. An Area J™ DP551 pickup in the bridge and an Area J DP550 pickup in the middle combine for well balanced tone with warmth, sustain and clarity. Versatile electronics include master volume, pickup blend and active three-band active EQ, while a Charvel HiMass™ bridge, Graph Tech® TUSQ® XL nut and open-gear tuners combine for stellar tuning stability with improved note punch and sustain.
This 5-string bass is presented in electrifying Lambo Green Metallic and Candy Apple Red finishes with gold hardware, cream pickup covers and licensed Fender® Precision Bass® headstock shape.
