Re: charvel predator

Look up charvel catalogs predator was listed in 88 and 89 catalog. Back in mid 90's I was talking to IMC who owned Charvel then, they said it was a Predator Firecrackel finish(I bought it used no info at purchase) (red orange black) according to serial number. I cant remember weather it was an 88 0r 89 that they said the year was. your 91 date could be correct also.

I am looking for a certain Jackson. In the Houston area a local guitarshop (now out of business) had an Archtop Tele with an Urban Camo paint job(like the new ESP's) but this was in the early 80's. I am probably SOL on that exact guitar, but if anyone has an Archtop Jackson Tele for sale....I am looking, e-mail me

charvel model6

I was sold a charvel Model 6 purported by the seller to have been built in the USA. The serial# is C607005. To whom or where must I go to verify this. I thank you for any help you can provide, Thanx Junior/Brooklyn NY

Re: charvel model6

The charvel Model ^ was absolutly not ever manufactured in the USA, if it was it would be called a jackson soloist. the charvels where the Japan models of Jackson Charvel. Ive owned tow of these in the 80s and although they are fabulous they aint american in any way.

Re: charvel model6

I purchased a model 6 new in '89 and a used early 90's in '97 and I have never seen anything to indicate that either of these(or any)were made in the USA. But don't fret, there is very little that seperates the high quality made in Japanese(sic) guitars from their American counterparts.

Charvel Identification, think it's a 475 but

It is sunburst. and the book I have doesn't mention sunburst.

Here are the stats: 22 frets. S/S/H - they are Jackson brand active pickups. Shark fin inlays. 3 knobs, one 5 way selector strip.

Charvel on the headstock, NOT like a guitar, it looks like a Jackson headstock. 6 tuners on one side. Locking trem.

Made in Japan. Serial number 348065.

Email me please.

Charvel model 6

have a charvel model 6, 1980's , serial number c606070, looking to sell, need prices.

I have an '85 Charvel w/ rising sun graphics for sale.

I have an '85 Charvel w/ rising sun graphics. It's a San Dimas #5286 with 2 humbuckers. The neck is original, but warped. Not sure if it can be replaned or not. A few scratches on the back but the front is in real nice shape. It's got a Kahler trem. Does anyone know what this might be worth on E-bay? All I've seen are mint guitars on there, just wondering what a road worn axe might be worth. Thanks.

Charvel Model ?

Please could anyone help? I have owned a Charvel Super Strat guitar from new in 1986, it was one of a few Charvel guitars brought into the UK when JHS took up the UK distribution. As I was working for Harman Audio at this time and attended the BMF in 1986 for the launch I brought the guitar from the importers after the show.It is white pearlescent finish with a bridge humbucker and 2 single coils with 5 way selector switch a la Strat,it has a Khaler Trem finished in Black Chrome,it has a maple neck of exremely low D profile, believed to be a Valley Arts neck fiited to the few that came to the show to impress the Brits, apparently? It has a pointy headstock ( not reverse ) and has Charvel in "Guitar" script along it, it has bolt on neck with a 4 screw chrome plate with Charvel/Jackson USA inscribed on it, it is NOT active, please could anyone tell me the Model/Type of this superb instument, and a rough idea of it's value, it is in MINT condition with no marks or wear.Hope someone will put me out of my misery,
cheers.
