I own a one of a kind custom made by Grover Jackson himself. It has THE prototype body from which ALL 88's were patterened after. The guitar was made for Harry Cody of Shotgun Messiah to his specs. It looks like an 88, obviously, but has a one of a kind scalloped, near zero radious fingerboard.

Any questions or awnt to see pics just email, reguards.

Hey Pete, I've got one...I'm from Cincinnati...not really sure what info, you're looking for but I'll give you an update on mine...it was very well used in late 89 to 90, on the road...I traveled the whole east coast with it, and it was my primary guitar...I ended up replacing the pick-up in it with a Seymour Duncan trembucker, because the ceramic Jackson pick-up that was in it, buzzed alot, when I played clubs with alot of neon lights...I had to replace the nut too, because the screws to the lock-down deal, just eventually stripped, and couldn't find replacements...as of now, I'm looking for a replacement whammy bar for it, cause it basiically "melted" from my sweat,(because of the pot metal construction)where my hand laid against it on the lower string side...BUT, it's one of the best playing guitars that I've ever owned, for the neck and duribilty...a very easy playing axe...really glad to still own it...I just played it to death (five to six nights, on the road), so that's what I've got to say about THAT, LOL
Write me back if you've got any questions,
Seizure,
Duane in Cincy

One of a kind Jackson Arch top.

Now gentlemen, this is a first for me and many years since I've bought or sold guitars, but what I have here is one of the three remaining guitars in my once large collection of original Jackson and Charvel guitars. No junk here. Nothing but US handcrafted in San Dimas or Ontario. This one of a kind proto-type was built for someone, I'm not sure who? Maybe the cat in ZZ Top, I forget now, but it is basicly a "Dinky Strat or Soloist shape. The thing that makes this guitar so incredibly rare, perhaps the only one in existance is it has a 22 fret bolt on neck and the body is an arch top. Like an arch top soloist and a Phil Colen. "A Dinky Archtop Strat" Body material is likely Alder or Poplar, it's pretty light. The guitar is absolute original and stored. 22 Fret maple with brazilian rosewood fingerboard with pearl shark tooth inlays. A reverse headstock painted black w/ a white Jackson logo w/"made in usa. Four digit serial neckplate Ontario made in late 80's. The guitar has the good bridge licensed Floyd pat. Jackson stamped made by Schaller. One bridge Humbucker, J-90 or custom wound Jackson P.U. One volume knob. All hardware is black and the guitar is a beautiful sea foam green. Black rectangle case. I've owned at least 50 of the most incredible Jackson's ever produced. Pictures and stories you would not beleive. People who know me, can tell you. Back in the day before the internet. This is the first and only posting ever of this guitar. I don't know what to ask for it? I'm out of the loop now. Help? I'm in Los Angeles.

1985 San Dimas RR1 Champagne Pink

Does anyone have any idea what the value of a 1985 San Dimas Randy Rhoads model would be? It is all original and in VG condition?

Re: 1985 San Dimas RR1 Champagne Pink

Well... I bought just Jackson San Dimas Randy Rhoads 1985 for 850 dollars. But... Mine condition was just about 7+. So... I Think that you could price your guitar like 1400 or something like that.

Charvel/Jackson Bass

I found a used C/J Bass in a used music shop. There are no marks(i.d.) on the guitar. It's black, and is a four-string-fretted. It sounds good, but I know nothing about this breed. Any ideas as far as quality, worth, etc?? Thx

Why does no one know anything about Charvel Guitars?

Why does no-one know anything about Charvel Guitars? Is it some kind of conspiracy!

Re: Why does no one know anything about Charvel Guitars?

: Why does no-one know anything about Charvel Guitars? Is it some kind of conspiracy! Why whatever do you mean Boy? I beg to differ? Perhaps all things considered Wayne Charvel and his company was pretty short lived? It was a company that could not produce mass amounts of guitars. In fact I think the line probably did more after Grover Jackson took it over. But like all good things, somebody makes you an offer you cannot refuse and Bang! It's sold. I love old Charvel's. I've owned several and they're magic. I bought one from a guy who made it while working at Jackson/ Charvel. It was one of 3 that had a mahogony neck. I knew several employee's and several popular endorsee's like Jake E. Lee. I suggest you contact G.M.W. guitar works in Glendora CA. Talk to my good friends Lee or Dan. I believe there you will find all the history and tradition you could want and is coveted with pride. There are those of us who know and will never forget, but I believe this is uniquely a So. Cal. experience for the hard core guy "in the know."
Tell them Greg Mitchell sent you, tell em' I said Howdy and I think you will find that unless you're just a jack off who only interest is wasting there time you will be treated as in the brotherhood. How's that? Does that help? I have one incredible Jackson I will sell. Maybe you might be the one? C-ya Greg Mitchell.

Charvel?

trying to locate an old charvel I had. It had two active double humbuckers, neck through, 24 frets, floyd rose, 5 position toggle, vol, tone, passive/active knobs, deep purple w/mahogany .
I don't even know what model it was. Can't find it anywhere.
thanks

Curious about my Charvel too!

In 1997 I bought a Kobalt Blue metalic neck-thru Charvel while passing through Indiana. It has 1 double coil or humbucker pick-up & a volume knob with what seems to a coil splitter switch. The serial #C800831 appears after the 24th fret. Is there any useful info about this guitar or a place website to find out the worth? I also need to mention it has a Jackson style (or so I was told) hardshell case with the word Charvel molded into it. Some one once found info using the serial# & said it was made in San Dimas custom shop in 1984. Is this true?

Charvel/Jackson modle 625

Does anyone know what this guitar is worth, It is a Fort Worth

Is it a model 4

I think i have a model 4, it has a ft. worth tx. usa address on the bolt on neck plate and serial# 309592. It has jackson hardware with a dual locking floyd, sharkfin inlay, active humbucker and 2 single coils, it has 3 knobs and 3 toggles and is in mint condition. Could anyone tell me what it is for sure and your best guess of what it's worth.

Re: Is it a model 4

I bought a model 4 back in 1986 in London, England in metallic blue (serial 252765) and it still plays like a dream. The description you give sounds like my guitar. I also own Martins ang Gibsons but regularly pick up the Charvel 4.

If it help you to be sure, the three knobs are from outside towards strings 1)active tone; 2)coil-tap (graduated), 3) volume

Re: Is it a model 4

Yes, it is a model 4, I have two of them. Once I bought new in 1990 and the other I got in 95. I love them and wish I had two or three more.
