Talking Here's a good save!

This has ended up being one of my favorites.

Good story, a ways back late one night I was trolling the bay whacked of course...;) and I saw this for around 100 bucks so I grabbed it and forgot about it until it showed up on the door.

A pretty sorry looking Model 1 Charvel, the kid had rattle canned the funky blue paint job, it was poor and under the vintage trem it had more holes for a two post trem but the pickup was the real good Jackson hum.
I started scraping the paint off with my finger nail and a razor blade and liked what I saw.

Here it is all cleaned up and polished - a sparkle Champagne color, very cool.

So as you see in the first picture I put a Floyd on it and a maple neck from a Model 2 with the behind the nut lock.
It is one of my favorite players.

Thumbs up

That was the original paint? :0 What was that spunk smoker thinking when he painted it with a can? It makes me a real happy camper to see an abused axe (especially an early Charvie) get a chance at a good life! There is a reason that Charvel got a deserved reputation...they were (are) great guitars.Your positive Karma has increased sir because of this act of kindness!

Nice!!! I love seeing old guitars get a second chance to rock! I just picked up a Jackson performer PS2 that someone decided to do some wood carving on.....it's pretty bad so I'm in search of a new body....
