As guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for avant-metal group Gojira, Joe Duplantier has always chased the beauty in extremes. Charvel honors that pursuit with the Joe Duplantier Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 HH E Mahogany electric guitar, a distinctively elegant and ferocious signature model worthy of one of the paramount acts in contemporary metal.
Designed with the latest in Charvel high performance, the Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas Style 2 HH E Mahogany captures Joe Duplantier's preferred style and specs, including all-new pickups. A big fan of DiMarzio’s PAF 36th Anniversary neck pickup, Duplantier sought to pair that choice with a more robust low end from his bridge pickup. Released for the first time with this guitar, the Joe Duplantier signature DiMarzio Fortitude humbucking bridge pickup completely responds to his needs — from crushing, heavy riffs to beautiful open soundscapes and everything in between. Combined with the PAF, these pickups deliver vintage tone with a twist.
The San Dimas body is crafted out of mahogany with a specially contoured heel for easy access to the upper reaches of the ebony fingerboard. It's finished with natural satin to let the raw wood grain shine. The graphite-reinforced bolt-on mahogany neck refuses to budge, despite heavy touring and dramatic climate changes. The heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel makes neck relief tweaks a breeze, while the oiled finish on the back of the neck provides smooth playability. Built for speed, the fingerboard features a 12-16” compound radius and 22 jumbo frets with pearloid big block inlays. The neck ends at a licensed Fender® Telecaster® headstock.
Other features include three-way toggle pickup switching, knurled volume control knob placed slightly back from playing position, Charvel compound-radius compensated bridge with anchored tailpiece and Charvel locking tuners. Built to take a pounding while delivering pulverizing tone, this signature axe is also easier on the eyes than many metal guitars, with a subtle natural finish, chrome hardware, a simple black pickguard and worn nickel pickup bobbins.
