    I have a Charvel flying v that I was told to hang onto b/c it might be worth money (I was going to anyways). I was wondering if there is a serial number database somewhere where I can find out my particular model’s information. My number is 361268. It is a strange setup and I have never seen another one like it before. I wish i could post some pics but I have no website to put any online. It says Charvel on the head, it has Jackson tuning pegs. Its got the standard dots on the fretboard (no sharkfin 🙁 or lightning bolt inlay). It has a Flloyd-rose trem. It has 3 charvel pickups all single coil but the bottom two are side-by-side and angled so I think they are wired as a humbucker. There is only 1 volume knob, no tone knob, and a 5-way switch. Bolt-on neck. No battery inside. Also its an offset v shape, the one side is longer than the other (killer). Anyone have anything at all for me or know where i should look?

      As posted, I have some sympathy with Murderr (is it pronounced the same as “Dr Furhuerrer” in “The Man with Two Brains”?). Except that we do have rather a lot of one-post “What’s My Guitar Worth?” types here so we can go off on a tangent sometimes. We’ll all miss you, Murdurrerher.

      Anyhoo, back to faggoty tennis. You can now buy the “Tennis Girl Poster” dress on eBay. TBH, it doesn’t look so good modelled by the original designer, but it’s already gone past US Strat money:

      It is authentic, BTW. Super-mod Mike may rename this thread “what’s my ‘2nd serve – oops, forgot to put on knickers’ photograph worth?” if he wishes.

      Wasn’t exactly “Hi I’m Mr Murderr, I wonder if anyone could give me some advice about…” was he? F*** him is what I say. Just my op as ever 😕

      I think you guys upset our friend, even though there was an apology for all the tennis stuff in an earlier post. Oh well 🙂

      The French must love it… it’s basically a 3 week travel show. I really didn’t want to bring lefties up again either, but they are actually disadvantaged in the Tour de France, as the water vehicles usually cruise up the right hand side. And we all know a lefty would rather dehydrate than use his right hand.

      YouTube lefties galore: http://www.youtube.com/results?search=lefty+guitar&search_type=search_videos&search=Search

      Anyone know how the Cricket is going? After Wimbledon blew the BBC budget, they only had £5.50p left for ‘all other sports’, so all we get these days is ‘International Dwarf tossing’ (not as stupid as it sounds, there is a hell of a lot of strategy involoved) and with the other 50p they managed to televise ‘Scottish regional Water Caber Tossing’, basicaly the BEEB will televise anything that involves Tossing, or am i getting them mixed up with Channel 5?

      Anyway, what next? Tour de France? no they would never stoop that low.

      For my part, that’s the last time I’ll promote Australian sporting heroes. 😛

      All lefty propaganda and you know it.

      But your right, my apologies if you have been bombarded with irrelevant replies Legalize, as funny as some have been 😀

      I wonder if Legalize has ever checked up on this thread for useful info on the Charvel? If so, I apologize for all this “tennis” guff. An old, stale joke that hangs around here like a locker room towel.

      Yawning slightly, I think of all the the lefty/righty doubles champions. Newcombe+Laver, Emerson+Laver, Fleming+McEnroe, Woodforde+Woodbridge, etc etc. An Australian really ought to know better, Mike. I won’t bore anyone with why the lefty-righty works, even if the lefty is in the deuce court (only on service). Work it out in your head 😛

      Tennis is bad enough, let alone when played by a lefty. Can you imagine playing a game of doubles with a leftie on your right hand side? Ridiculous.

      OOOhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!

      When i was 7 i used my tennis racket as a guitar, at 10 it had been progressed up to a cricket bat, at 13 it was used as a kind of make shift hammer to knock in the cricket stumps, and at 15 we used to see how far we could hit lumps of brick across the local building site.
      Never did we ever play Tennis with them, kids that played Tennis were ‘Nancy boys’ and were dealt with accordingly. 😆
      As Jim Royal would say ‘Racquet my arse!’

      Personally, and I know I’ll get lobbed for this, I prefer the spelling “Tennis Racquet”.

      a “Football racket” is a bunch of Serie A teams deciding to pay the ref they prefer to officiate at their games. It’s a beautiful game alright (and I do watch it quite a bit).

      It’s a middle class elitist game for the benefit of the hoy-paloy to watch whilst quoffing back a few Pimms, whilst snoffling at the trough on bowls of Strawberries and Cream that would cost ‘normal’ people a weeks rent.
      There is only 1 place i would burn down before the ‘Lawn Club’, and that is the Royal Opera House.
      Come the revolution i will be bringing out my black book.

      He’s probably too busy watching Wimbledon to notice.

      Forget the lube. Your just lucky you never saw the “mirror reflection” shot 1bassleft took of his amps Gordy. 2 simple words, tennis racket.

      Those pointy shark-fin style Vs were popular towards the tail-end of the 80s and early 90s. I’d guess it was from that period.
