I have a 86 Charvel that I was going to bring to the store and perform a trade in. Any idea on what the value of this should be? There are no scratches on it and everything works great.

Hi. That is a 1988 Charvel Model 4M. It was made in Japan for only one year. So, it is not a USA Charvel. The Charvel Model series are some of the best import guitars ever built. It has a JE-1200 mid-boost (I think it is the 1200), the mid-boost circuit is active but the pickups are passive. Maple neck with maple board, basswood body, Volume - Tone - Mid-boost, three on/off toggles, and a Jackson JT-6 Floyd Rose. As far as price, $350.00 - $450.00 with case.

What are you looking for in a trade? I collect Charvel Model series guitars.

On a trade though... to a dealer... might give you like $150. You can expect about half of the "retail" value on a trade. Current Blue Book on that one is $300 for a "90% excellent condition"
