    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!

    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 ?

    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.

    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.

    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.
