Jackson V 1984

There is a Jackson V serial # 075 on ebay right now. I have never seen one with rounded corners like this one has. The seller claims it was an original san dimas model. Does anyone know if this thing is real or not?

Mike

Re: Jackson V 1984

I believe it is a real one. Because Robbin Crosby had one with rounded corners on the round and round video. Also Robbin Crosby designed the first pointy V, that's why they call it the King V (his nickname was King)

Not true Randy rhoads was

Not true Randy rhoads was the creator of the rhoads model and the V

My Guitar With Pictures What Year?

Ok some people will probably flip at the stickers on this guitar, but anyway, can anyone tell me what year this year and roughly what its worth out of interest. My dad passed it down to me years ago, and i cherish this guitar so I'd never sell it, but im just interested. Picture on link.

Re: My Guitar With Pictures What Year?

It is a model 3 w/pickguard. It is nearly impossible to know the year it was made. I'm a lefty but I'd think around $300 is what these go for on ebay.

identification!!!

Yeah I got a charvel guitar...its got a bolt on neck, and the serial number is 354417. I need to know what year it is. Could you find out for me and email me the link you used?

Re: identification!!!

Serial number on IMPORT Charvels CANNOT 100% identify the model of a guitar. It also cannot tell you the year however, I have ones starting the 322### that is from 1991.

joe...

anyone shred some light on this???

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Charvel-Jackson-Strat-very-high-quality-made-in-Japan_W0QQitemZ7420486853QQcategoryZ33044QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

To me it looks a little strange.. anyone help?
Thanks!

Re: anyone shred some light on this???

There were some stat heads that we made in the early 90's although, the logo does look weird for that model. It might have been a Japan guitar made only for the Japan market only that made it over.

if theat helps, Im also looking for my serial here guys!

Our seems pretty close, shureley first 3 didgits means something?

Re: Serial# 356094 Jackson /Charvel... What Is It? Very Important!!

Due..but i'm confused abt fake n' original!
i think it's fake because website doesn't have the serials matching to this!

Re: Serial# 356094 Jackson /Charvel... What Is It? Very Important!!

The serial# for the Japan imports tell you absolutely nothing about the model of the guitar or to help identify the year of the guitar. As guitars were being built that just slapped on them a plate that sat in a bog box with all the plates. The only way to identify a model is to list the guitars specs (ie: pickup config, #of frets, type on inlays, Charvel logo style, etc)

Hope this helps,

joe...

Re: Serial# 356094 Jackson /Charvel... What Is It? Very Important!!

Brother Joe
it has 22 frets
Charvel/Jackson Pickups
(1 Coil & 1 Humbucker)
4 Way Switch.
Only Volume Nob
Charvel is written where the tuner keys are!
and behind the keys... jackson is written!
Floyd rose... old styly!

Help me bro... i'm confused...
i'm satisfied with it..but if it's not original then i'd go for something like ibanez prestige or maybe K-7.
tell me if it's original or if i buy another guitar.. would it takeover the charvel's taste or it's gonna be wasted?

Charvel Guitar

When was my guitar made and is it a rare model?
Serial number 249481

Re: Charvel Guitar

: Is this guitar valuable? Jackson Professional
: Serial number 503725, beautiful cherry finish, like new, with hard case

Re: Charvel Guitar

It is a Japan import, most likely 1989. Not rare.

USA Jackson, most likely early 90's, serial number not on Jackson website

I have a bolt-on neck Jackson, with the serial number being 6113 and the factory being in San Dimas, CA. It came with three pick-ups: an EMG 81, a random single coal in the middle (Seymour Duncan I believe, although there is a lack of writing on it) and an EMG single coal for the neck. There is a 5-way selector switch, one volume nob, original floyd rose. Also, the 12th-19th frets are scalloped. I'm not sure if it's from the old custom series or what, as there is no indication of this serial number in any category from San Dimas. Any info appreciated, thanks,

James

Hi James. This confused the hell out of me for a LONG time. If you look at the serial #'s at the Jackson site, your # is not in the San Dimas section. I had the exact same situation where mine is #4798. It turns out that between the time of 1506-7303 Jackson was in the process of moving their shop to Ontario. So,they had the entire series neck plates made before the move. THis is why there is an incongruity with the neck plates.
