Re: Another Crossroads guitar thread
OK, I searched the Internet all friggin night to try and figure this out. Since I read so much minutia about the details of the movie all these years, I was pretty confident about the Michael Jackson story. However, here is what I found - many people have heard the same original story about Michael Jackson not wanting them to use the name "Jackson" in the movie, but don't believe it is actually a true story. It was probably the earliest rumor about the guitar, though. Secondly the argument about Jackson vs Charvel is that it seems the guitar is actually BOTH. On several sites, they detail that the guitar was a red Charvel (that's why the neckplate says Charvel), but Steve had them swap the neck for a Jackson for the movie. So I guess everyone can be kinda right on that one, since it is a hybrid. I hope this is helpful!!
