The Charvel Satchel Signature Pro-Mod DK22 features an alder Dinky body with sharper-radius top edges, with two Fishman Fluence Classic humbucking pickups topped with black/white bobbins appointed. 

They share a single volume control knob with special push/pull dual voice activation, while other features include a three-way toggle pickup switch, top-loaded Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system, and more.

“This is the ultimate heavy metal guitar,” said Satchel. 

“I love the duality and how it supports all of my playing needs. It sounds amazing live and very rarely goes out of tune even with my high-energy on stage performances but also sounds killer in the studio. 

“The ‘80s had some of the coolest looking guitars of any generation, including a lot of animal print and this striped Bengal pattern always really caught my eye. If you’re in the back row at a show, it just stands out!”

“As a kid, some of my favourite heavy metal guitar players were playing Charvels. They looked awesome. Playing my Charvels, the necks always feel so great. They play smooth as butter.” 

Charvel’s VP Category Management Jon Romanowski said that “Steel Panther has been dedicated to honouring the impact ‘80s heavy metal has had on music culture.

“Satchel is an innovative and ferocious player,” he added. “We could not be more excited to introduce this new colour and continue our long-standing collaboration with such a talent.”
