Default Overdue NGD Charvel

1986 (or 87) Charvel Model 6.
Neck through, MOP inlays, active preamp (passive pickups).
Plays like a dream and I have wanted to own one of these for many years.
Unusual for me to own a Kahler equipped but I like it on this one.
The actual color is really hard to capture but in real life it looks more like copper than that, and black in darker light.
It seems to have a little flip-flop quality to it.
Description is Black Cherry.

LOVE IT DOODE! That Samurai looks all original and in great shape.

I have a Model 5A (single J-95 hum) that is the Black Cherry color. If you don't like the brownish tinge to the color just wet sand it with some 2000 grit and it will return to the original nice dark red. It seems Charvel never thought about what a color would age to when the clearcoat matures to greenish yellow.

Thanks Q-Ball.
I love the color as it is.
Just tough to get a good idea in a photo.
