86-89 Charvel MIJ Model 1 White (USED)
Get your hair metal tribute band going or rock out in style with one pickup like Jerry Cantrell! For sale we have an mid-80's Charvel Model 1 with a simple enough design with one humbucker pickup and a single volume knob, yet the tone it produces is anything but simple!
Very comfortable to handle with a good balance, the acoustic sustain in the Charvel is apparent as soon as you play it. The bolt-on neck is really nice, wide but shallow with a fast smooth action. Joining the body at the 16th fret, the neck has an extension to the fingerboard to allow for the 22nd fret. While access to the top frets is easy enough.
First impression of the Charvel plugged into an amp is that of a “one sound’ guitar, however by experimenting with playing techniques there are some pleasing tones to be found. The pickup is sharp and full with just the right amount of power to overload the clean setting on an amp. Overdrive really makes the Model 1 sing.
This guitar is used and shows plenty of wear for a guitar 30-plus years old. See pics for full cosmetic details.
