Very boner inducing
24 frets too!
What is that?
I assume it’s a DK2M Pro, but maybe that’s wrong.
It's a Charvel
So terrible heel then?
I know they mentioned they were trying it some new stuff. Hopefully a modern heel on some models is one of those things.
Eh, based on the hashtags and offset dots, maybe there's a chance it's something actually new that will have a more modern heel.
affordable Govan kinda? I see great pre owned stuff right but afraid to pull the trigger before Namm !
Bleh from me. They have Jacksons for 24 frets. Why ruin Charvels?
Looks like a 24 fret Tele Style. We need more of em!
There’s pretty much no way that all the Pro Mods don’t have the contoured neck heel, etc this year.
Dave's guitar has ash wings and the Pro Series has Mahogany wings with an ash veneer top. In order to have it look decent and not like some beveled Kiesel abomination they had to make it a flat top. I personally like the looks of the Pro more then Dave's guitar as I do not care for being able to see the neck going through the body.
It makes sense. But i’m going to have to find a way to play one then to figure out if I gel with a flat top. Don’t like guitars cutting into my arm. Hopefully i’ll find it’s a non-issue.
Does 2 extra frets ruin them?
For the Teles, I definitely think it does. They don’t seem to make the cutaway deeper, they just move the nut away from the body to make space for the extra frets, and that leaves the bridge too far forward, which makes the whole thing look wrong IMHO.
For example, to my eye, neither the Jackson Tele 7 thingy or the current Charvel Style 2-7 look right.
Ah, well, that makes sense. I think I still prefer to have the extra frets, but neck pickups do sound way better an inch or so farther from the bridge.
Yeah, despite my constant whining, I do get that some people’s style benefits from the extra frets. Personally I get by just fine with even 21 frets (though I do use all of those), but I get why some folks like to have them.
The Govan San Dimas body is actually smaller than standard to accommodate the extra frets proportionally. If FMIC foregos that and only adds two frets to other Charvel models, it will be a facepalm.
That or do like ESP does and just shoves the extra 2 frets on without any sort of tweak. Pretty much a 22 fret guitar with 2 inaccessable frets.
That’s never bother me, I can still reach them, but then again I don’t use them much.
What helps make those extra frets usable IME isn’t more cutaways but scalloped frets. Then I can really feel that I’ve fretted it and can dig in for vibrato and bends.
