I've found Charvel Fusion guitar. The problem is the back plate says: Jackson and the serial is also Jackson's serial (I have checked on Jacksons website)I don't know - is this fake guitar? Can anybody help ? Thanks

ANYONE KNOW THE YEAR AND MODEL OF JACKSON 9713141

JUST BOUGHT THE GUITAR - IT IS MADE IN JAPAN- HAS EMG HZ PICKUPS- NOT SURE WHAT MODEL????? IT HAS JACKSON LICENSED UNDER FLOYD ROSE TREMELO- IT ALSO HAS SMALL SHARK FIN MARKERS ON THE FRETBOARD- NOT THE LARGE FINS THAT YOU SEE ON MOST OF THEM- IF SOMEONE COULD EMAIL ME- I'D REALLY APPRECIATE ANY INFO YOU COULD GIVE ME- THANKS!!!!

Charvel aren't really fake jacksons, but they aren't really jacksons either. Charvel is the budget range of guitars made by jackson. Fender have squires, Gibson have epiphone, and jackson have Charvel. They can be quite good though, and in my experience far better than the s**t fender pump out and call squire. My friend had a charvel once, but made the terrible mistake of changing it for a Stagg. I dont think stagg make good guitars. Keep the Charvel.

I have seen and owed serveral Charvels and everyone of them has had some sort of Jackson hardware on them. If nothing else you might have a Jackson with a replacement Charvel neck they all will pretty much bolt on to each other. Anyway Jackson don't hold their value so all that really matters is if you are happy with it.

I have a late 80's Charvel/Jackson Model 4 and it has been a great guitar but the bolt on neck isnt as good as the neck thru. Also, the Jackson SL1 is one much nice guitar but it costs it too. I would always try to get a neck thru body no matter what guitar but thats where the price gets up.
