Honestly, selling this as a project leaves such a bad taste in my mouth. Because this guitar flat out fucks up faces by being one of the finest examples of late 80s/early 90s high end MIJ Charvel/Jackson Luthiery, but these are a real sleeper model. Especially not incredibly popular now that Jackson has released new import neck through Soloists from some Asian country that was probably a communist shithole less than 20 years ago. Make no mistake, those are the bastard children of the 650xl. The 650xl wouldnít even show up at the paternity suit hearing for those piece of shit guitars. It would be too busy doing burnouts in a Camaro in the parking lot of a roadside Casino. Note that this is somewhat comparable to a Charvel Model 6 in the same way a Thai ladyboy streetwhore is comparable to a high class escort. This fucks the shit out of Model 6s, which is the closest relatively well known model. Matching headstock/Sexier logo/better trem (or trem route in this case, trem isnít included in the listing)/pull up route/etc. etc. etc. I had it listed as a complete guitar forever, but the aftermarket bridge pickup I had installed in it was apparently undesirable for Jackson/Charvel purist fags, who only care about originality and the shitty stock Jackson pickups/JE units that came stock. So as much as I hate listing projects Iíll try my luck selling like this.
Frets are in good shape, a little wear, but still tons of life left. Neck is straighter than Sean Connery era James Bond. Truss rod cover is included (didn't have it on for pictures). Tuners, locking nut, wrench holder are all relatively in good shape. HOLY SHIT, ARE THOSE SCHALLER STRAPLOCKS TO PROTECT THIS SWEET AXE FROM MY RAMBUNCTIOUS STAGE ANTICS? You bet your ass they are. Some rugged karate mentor probably told you in you in your youth that nothing is truly free, he told you those words of wisdom with his dying breath before getting killed by a Chinese crime syndicate he had ties to in his dark past. Guess what, he was fucking wrong. These Schaller Straplocks are free bonus I am dropping on your ass like napalm on a Vietnamese village. Thatís a $20 value included for free. Pass on the karma, or donít, I donít care. Iíll even throw in the ends that go on the strap. I can dig up a trem cavity cover if you are into unneccessary shit like that. No guarantees itís the one that came on the guitar. It might even be one of the aircraft grade aluminum ones from the USA Jackson models. I can sharpen that shit to a razor sharp edge if you want to keep it in the guitar case for self defense. In case a jealous rival shredder comes into the dressing room looking to break some fingers with street fighting moves because he is jealous of your hot licks and you have to slit some throats to show him who is boss.
This is seriously in excellent fucking shape.One noticeable ding on the body by the bridge pickup I can notice, looks like it has been touched up, canít even see it from more than 6-7 feet away. Shown here in an incredibly unflattering clinical macro photograph. Not terribly noticeable on this color. Other than that itís in awesome shape, the headstock doesnít even have the typical dings Jackson stocks get. Put those on yourself impaling members of the audience with your face melting solos. The neck on this is thinner than a coked out groupie from the days when metal was still cool. One of the coolest neck carves Charvel/Jackson has ever put out.
Color is Gun Metal Gray. Kind of black, kind of sparkly silvery green. It fucking kills. This is the color of stealth fighter jets in 80s movie with lots of homoerotic rivalry between hot shot military pilots.
Guess what motherfucker? Just when you thought this deal couldnít get any better you find out I am including a free Gator (Their ďEconomyĒ model) case to ship it in. This case wonít be ďeconomyĒ for long. If you use this guitar like fate intended it should soon smell like the luxury of sex musk and illicit substances, but that is your call, itís pretty much new coming from me. You donít honestly need it, since you should exclusively carry this through the streets over your shoulder. Only whipping it into playing position to point at skanky ladies to bring them to instantaneous orgasm with your sweet ass dive bombs. But itís included nonetheless, mainly for shipping safety.
What IS included:
-Stock single coils (J100s or J200s, donít remember, they look cool as fuck with the more uncommon stamp)
-Truss Rod Cover
-Gator Hardshell Case
