    What model is this? Looks like a HSS Stealth, but it's a Charvel with a reverse headstock.

    Stealth body with a reverse headstock neck from another guitar? Looks like the hole for the volume pot was plugged too so it's not stock.

    Looks like a 375 to me but I don't recall seeing one with a reverse headstock. Neck was swapped?

    Mutt. Charvel never made a Stealth. A 22 fret Charvel neck would have been a perfect fit in the Stealth neck pocket.

    Criss Oliva also had quite a few guitars that were indeterminate origin that he applied headstock decals to himself. But I'm betting this is a mutt.

    Stealths are some of the beastliest guitars ever. If you have the chance to buy one of the two higher end models for a reasonable price, do it.

    Yeah, looks like a Stealth body with an indeterminate Charvel neck (not that all the Japanese ones aren't the same).

    Maybe a transition-era Predator? I've seen a couple with the toothpaste logo.

    Could it even be a factory one off for Oliva?
