Taking their name from the original Japanese pronunciation of Godzilla, French avant-metal quartet Gojira has cemented itself as one of paramount metal acts of the new-millennium. Led by singer, vocalist, and principal songwriter Joe Duplantier, the band has always dealt in extremes — uncovering light in darkness and finding beauty in heaviness while also searching to expand the sonic palette. Charvel proudly honors Duplantier with a distinctively elegant and ferocious signature model worthy of those musical pursuits.
The Joe Duplantier Signature Pro-Mod San Dimas® Style 2 HH is designed with the latest in Charvel high performance, Duplantier’s preferred style and specs, and monster tone equal to his band’s name from dual Duncan Designed™ HB humbucking pickups.
The San Dimas Style 2 body is crafted out of mahogany with a specially contoured heel for easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard, while the bolt-on mahogany neck with graphite reinforcement has a smooth oiled back finish and convenient thumbwheel truss rod butt adjust. Other premium features include a 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets, three-way toggle pickup switching and single knurled control knob (volume) in special placement slightly back from playing position, Charvel compound radius compensated bridge with anchored tailpiece, Charvel locking tuners and black hardware.
Built to take a pounding, this signature axe is available in Satin White with black body binding and a licensed Fender® Telecaster® headstock.
