I'm starting my search to add an 80s charvel to my collection..Let's see what you guys got...
May I start - hopefully - in style?
My 1982 Charvel San Dimas EVH, 100% original, totally mint condition other than a very attractive neck wood discoloration! This guitar is a monster player and it screams!
^^^^^^ Yow! That is pretty sweet.
My 1985 "Last in Line"...
This is a "Solar" reissue signed by Mike Shannon from several years back...
I'll play: here's my surfcaster. a little non-standard in the charvel world, but it's awesome. I guess it probably missed the 80s cutoff by a year or two..but it's close enough, haha.
Really awesome guitars guys ! The first page + right away some beauties.. a 7 string ( never seen a charvel 7), a sweet surfcaster- the wood on that looks great.
The Last in Line + Steampunk are just unreal !! .. last in line is my favorite dio album. My charvel is a basic black USA san dimas but i love it. I had the neck replaced with
a much thicker (1") warmoth neck.
hey does anyone know why, when i go to upload a pic it says its too big ?
this is one of the first bodies grover jackson cut in the early days, it was made up at schecter's shop and has the prototype superrocks on board. the neck is a schecter brw cut by tom keckler...
I had a couple Jacksons back in the day but never had a Charvel. I always wanted something with an HB in the bridge, SC in the neck and nothing in the middle but never ended up making that happen.
A few years ago, I had the hots to buy a So Cal but the Floyd would have been lost on me (had several, not a hater, just didn't need one) so I built this one. The lighter of the two is the older one.
I think surf casters are awesome and very welcome in this thread!....sweet wood grain!
That Last in Line one is awesome.
I used to love Charvel guitars, and feel as if I owe them a debt of gratitude. At a time when a decent
guitar was $1000 and up, they came in and priced very good models at around $350.
This may have kept the other companies on their toes, and possibly helped to contribute to the
plethora of affordable guitars today.
Ugh, I really want one of these, but only ever seem to see the one with the vintage trem for sale. Love this.
We need MORE!!!
Wow that Guthrie's Charvel... I love everything about it, it screams versatility.
Here's mine.. not from the 80s but i think it looks 80s enough
Here is my USA made Transparent Red Ale SoCal Charvel with a Suhr Aldrich in the bridge and Suhr SSV in the neck along with Charvel/SKB case. Incredible guitar that never sees much use so it is in the emporium if anyone wants to give this beauty a good home.
