**This guitar has a 1 centimeter paint crack on the bottom left side of the body. It is so miniscule I was unable to photograph it due to the color of this guitar & has no effect on how it plays at all.**
Joe Duplantier — front man of the groundbreaking metal band Gojira — is well known for the huge palette of tones that he’s able to elicit from his straightforward Charvel Joe Duplantier Signature solidbody electric guitars. The Joe Duplantier San Dimas Style 2’s slab body is loaded with a duo of Duncan Designed humbucking pickups for punishing the input of your amp. This signature model boasts custom features, such as a compound-radius fretboard and a truss rod adjustment thumbwheel at an affordable price point.
A no-nonsense design
What makes the Joe Duplantier Signature San Dimas Style 2 HH solidbody electric guitar stand out from a crowded field of metal-based instruments is its less-is-more approach to design. The non-flashy finish extends to the guitar’s Fender-licensed headstock. And body binding gives the Joe Duplantier San Dimas Style 2 guitar just enough pop to look like a serious metal machine.
Many of the finest appointments included on the Charvel Joe Duplantier Signature guitar aren’t immediately visible upon first glance. For instance, the ebony fretboard boasts a compound-radius that goes from 12″ to 16″ at the higher frets — a feature usually found on higher-end instruments. Graphite reinforcement is inlaid into the neck, ensuring its stability under most environmental situations. And if you do need to tweak your neck a bit, the truss rod thumbwheel adjustment makes easy work of it.
Dual Duncan Designed humbucking pickups
To get his pummeling guitar tones, Duplantier chose to go with a duet of Duncan Designed HB-103 humbucking pickups in his Charvel signature model. Many Sweetwater guitarists believe Duncan Designed pickups to be some of the most underrated out there. The HB-103s deliver plenty of output for your high-gain tones while remaining tight and clear sounding. And the single volume knob and 3-way pickup selector makes finding the right tones for your rig as simple as a flick of a switch.
