Charvel San Dimas USA Relic in Surf Green Ltd Edition - This guitar is one of only a handful of guitars that have been masterbuilt by Dave Nichols in the Custom Shop, so its part of a very limited run. As a result this guitar is sure to be in demand from both guitar collectors and also those looking for a contemporary high performance solid body offering plenty of character and built with a no compromise approach to upscale specifications and playability. The stunning Surf Green Relic finish combines beautifully with meticulous attention to finishing and a roasted basswood body. Check out the Caramelized Maple neck boasting an ultra intuitive 12" to 16" compound radius fingerboard. This USA Charvel San Dimas also has some wonderful sounding custom HSH pickups and comes with an ever popular Floyd Rose system.
This is an extraordinarily lovely very rare guitar and we are delighted to have just received on into stock. With years of experience to draw upon and an endless wealth of creativity, Charvel Custom Shop Master Builder “Red” Dave Nichols went above and beyond for the NAMM 2018 Custom Shop event, bringing 8 one-of-a-kind masterpieces to the auction.

Read on to find out more about the story and concept surrounding this extraordinarily lovely and individual USA Charvel San Dimas guitar with Relic Surf green finish and HSH pickups. We especially like the versatile reliable Floyd Rose trem system with Caramelized Maple neck and custom set of pickups - Nichols’ San Dimas Style 1 FR M HSH Relic looks like it was pulled from a beachside shipwreck. The cooked basswood body and flame maple top peeks through the Surf Green veneer courtesy of some expert Charvel Custom Shop relic’ing. A bolt-on roasted maple neck and reverse matching headstock take this incredible guitar to new levels.
