The Jake E Lee Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal is based on the distinctive white instrument the great guitarist acquired in 1975 and made famous during his Ozzy-era. 

Previously offered only as a USA model, this more affordable Pro-Mod version is perfectly fashioned for the high-performance guitarist. 

“When I was coming up in the ‘80s, Charvel was the cool guitar to have,” says Lee. “40 years later, it still is. It’s as good as you can get, and I can’t think of another brand or company I would trust to make me stuff.” 

The Jake E Lee Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal in Pearl White’s unique features include a rosewood fingerboard with 21 jumbo frets, Seymour Duncan JB SH-4 humbucking bridge pickup and slanted single-coil DiMarzio SDS-1 DP111 middle and neck pickups.

Additionally, there is a single volume Strat-style skirt control knob, hardtail bridge with black base plate, and Charvel tuning machines with pearl buttons.

The all-new Pro-Mod DK24 HSS FR E marks Charvel’s first DK24 HSS configuration with a Floyd Rose 1000 Series offering and comes in an Infinity Blue finish. 

Featuring a sculpted shredder’s cut heel and scalloped lower back bout, the alder Dinky body is  paired with a bolt-on “speed” maple neck with a hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back, and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel for quick and painless neck relief tweaks. 

The 12-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard features comfortable rolled edges and 24 jumbo frets, as the Seymour Duncan Full Shred SH-10B bridge, Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 single-coil middle, and Seymour Duncan Custom Flat Strat SSL-6 RWRP single-coil neck pickups hit with plenty of focused humbucker grit and springy vintage snap.

Other features include five-way blade pickup switching, single volume control (with 500K EVH Bourns low friction potentiometer), no-load tone control, and recessed Floyd Rose 1000 Series double-locking tremolo bridge system for superior tuning stability and radical pitch-raising capability. 

The all-new Pro-Mod DK24 HH HT E Mahogany with Poplar Burl features exotic woods and comes in a unique Desert Sand finish.

This DK24 model has a sleek Dinky body constructed from mahogany with a poplar burl top, sculpted shredder’s cut heel and scalloped lower back bout for seamless access to the upper registers. 

The bolt-on maple neck features graphite reinforcement, a hand-rubbed satin urethane finish on the back of the neck, and a heel-mount truss rod adjustment wheel. 

Designed for speed, the 12-16″ compound radius ebony fingerboard features rolled edges, 24 jumbo frets and offset white dot inlays. 

The Seymour Duncan Full Shred SH-10B bridge and Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro APH-1N neck pickups combine for a crisp top-end with low-end articulation, along with “soaring highs and silky lows”. 

Other features include five-way blade pickup switching, volume control (with 500K EVH Bourns low friction potentiometer), no-load tone control, and Charvel HT6 string-through-body hardtail bridge.
