Sure! I'm not sure who these scribbles refer to, but maybe you know.
FFFFFFFFFACK that's beautiful. I got one of the mexico made ones that's just perfect, but I still want to get one of the USA ones just because I know it's gonna be on a different level. And if that plays anything close to how it looks, you got yourself a keeper right there.
So nice. I'm still GASsing for an Oxblood one. I'll just sit here and be jealous looking at your pictures and just to be content with my MIM DK24. HNG.
What a stunner!
That looks top shelf!
Not sure what looks nicer, the maple neck or the maple top.
oh god dangit that's beautiful...time to pick up the next charvel I see to decide if I like it, too....
really beautiful. that neck looks like sand waves in the desert !
killer guitar! really happy for ya! well matched quilt and the flame on that neck is AWESOME.
I wasn't really aware of these Charvel DK24 models until this past Friday. was finally able to go to the local shop (pandemic lockdown extensions) and tried one of the HSS MIM shell pink ones. plunked a deposit down so nobody would snap it up while I think about it. the details on these DK24 models are incredibly well thought out.
the contours and fit of the body is absurdly good. hadn't seen any of this shape / style before, certainly not in person. plays awesome. did you have one of the MIM models first? hope I'm not hijacking the thread by asking about general QC / fit and finish of the MIM stuff, as I've got that deposit on the HSS and a used HH that I may take a gamble on. (stupid Reverb policies, can't return if I get a lemon.)
I have an a MIM HH in Burgundy mist and I absolutely love it. In terms of quality, the only issue I've noted on mine was some pokey fret ends, but the first time I took it for guitar work, the tech cleaned them up for me and now I dont have any issues with the guitar. Its probably my easiest playing guitar, I'm not normally a fan of thinner necks but it's amazingly comfortable.
My only nitpick is that I didn't like the stock wiring on the HH. The series-parallel switch leads to a few oddities and a bunch of positions I didnt like the sound of (split coil positions 2 and 4 wired in series, for example). I ended up switching it for a 3 way switch and making the mini toggle into a coil split, works much better for me.
looks like I just bought one! now the waiting game begins for it to ship. thanks dude!
hope y'all don't mind that I hijacked the thread. it's neat how the HH and HSS seem to be pretty different beasts (judging by YT demos for the HH as they didn't have a comparable model at the local shop). HSS has all that stratty goodness and cut, a lot chimier.
I tend to be underwhelmed by middle single coil alone, so the outer coils option for position 3 on the HSS was something of a revelation for me to hear. didn't occur to me to check the polarity and throw a RWRP in the neck for switching like that! all the positions are great and for the HSS, using standard tone knobs without any switches or splitting streamlines things quite nicely.
good Lord, I may well buy both. and dream about a USA model eventually... which I will need to justify with a hell of a lot more practice and a slimmed down fixer-upper / tinkerer's collection. send help.
Cheers! Yeah the quilt even looks better in person, IMO, and the neck is crazy - the flame seems to change with the angle you're looking at it from. And no worries, ask as much as you'd like.
No I didn't even try a MIM first - but I only heard good things about the USA models, the MIM as well, and I bought it from a big retailer with a decent return policy. The only complaint I see about the MIM DK24 are tuning stability, but most people seem to solve it with staggered tuners (which mine already has) and getting rid of the string trees.
Very nice! That neck is beautiful.
Very nice! HNGD!!!
Yep. I've pitched a tent.
Beautiful top - not sure who is building these, but they have that same really nicely done natural binding that a lot of USA Jacksons seem to have.
DAYMN that top
Well that's fuckin' gorgeous.
I think it's the Jackson shop, actually. The only USA Charvels they didn't build came off the Fender line, and since they're in the same building, well...
