A 5-string bass bridging old-school Charvel style and modern features.

For the seasoned player who defies the status quo and demands more from a high-performance hot rod bass, the Charvel Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ V 5-string does it all by combining modern appointments with throwback Charvel DNA. The sleek alder body shape is a familiar one—straight from the original Charvel San Dimas basses of late 1970s, with the deeper cutaway that gave adventurous bassists effortless upper-register access. The super-thin bolt-on maple speed neck is crafted with a gorgeous caramelized treatment, graphite reinforcement and heel-mount truss rod wheel for easy adjustment. The 12”-16” compound radius caramelized maple fingerboard gradually flattens from nut to heel for fast, smooth playing and includes rolled edges, 20 jumbo frets and Luminlay side dots.

The Pro-Mod San Dimas Bass PJ V blends the powerhouse voice of DiMarzio with a 5-string pickup —an Area J DP551 at the bridge offers well-rounded punch while the Charvel 5-String Split-Coil P in the middle delivers classic warmth, kick and clear tone. Versatile electronics include 3-band active EQ, pickup blend control and a master volume control with push/pull selector. The push/pull selector eliminates the risk of losing sound due to a dead battery as a quick pull on the volume knob bypasses the EQ's active circuit and regains sound from the bass without the use of battery power.
