Charvel DK24

Charvel recently launched the Jake E Lee Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal Style 1 HSS HT RW and the new Pro-Mod DK24 HT/FR models. 

The Jake E Lee signature is based on the distinctive white instrument the great guitarist acquired in 1975 and made famous during his Ozzy-era. Previously offered only as a USA model, this more affordable Pro-Mod version is perfectly fashioned for the high-performance guitarist.

“When I was coming up in the ’80s, Charvel was THE cool guitar to have,” says Lee. “40 years later, it still is. It’s as good as you can get, and I can’t think of another brand or company I would trust to make me stuff.”
