The Charvel San Dimas III w is a variation of the Charvel San Dimas III. Both guitars are part of the Charvel San Dimas Series made in the USA. The Charvel San Dimas III w featues a Mahogany body with a flamed maple drop top, a birdseye maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard. The black hardware, as opposed to the Charvel San Dimas III, consists of a Wilkinson VS100 tremolo (hence the W in the model name) and Sperzel locking tuners. The HSS pickup configuration consists of a Dimarzio Chopper single coil, a Dimarzio Fast Track 1 single coil and a Dimarzio Tone Zone humbucker. This guitar was only manufactured for one year (1996).
