Stunning ''Caramelized'' Body, Neck and Fingerboard

The signature San Dimas body has an eye-catching bird's-eye Maple top, with a thin clear matte finish and specially contoured heel, making access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard easier than ever before. The bolt-on neck is made from quartersawn flame Maple with a 'caramelized' finish, this heat and drying treatment give it a vintage feel making it sound and feel much older. The neck is reinforced with graphite and features a convenient truss rod adjustment wheel at the body end. The unique part of this San Dimas is that the compound-radius flame Maple fingerboard spans two octaves, with the same caramelized treatment as the neck, 24 extra jumbo stainless steel frets and special maple dot inlays with ebony borders.

Packed with Premium Performance Hardware

When it comes to hardware this guitar has plenty on offer, starting with the three specially wound Charvel custom MFB pickups. A Charvel Custom MFB Humbucking is positioned at the bridge and neck, with a MFB Single-Coil placed in the middle, in a HSH configuration. All three pickups are controlled by a versatile 5-position blade switch allowing the expansive tonal openness and dynamic sensitivity that Govan himself demands. Master volume and master tone are controlled by the two notched control knobs, complete with brass position markers set into the body. This guitar is finished with a Charvel locking tremolo bridge with Tremol-No™ unit and oversized brass block, bone string nut, chrome hardware and a 25.5'' scale length.
