NGD: 1986 Charvel Model 4

Got this from a fellow Jemsiter. I have always been intrigued by Charvel/Jacksons, I've only owned a newer So-cal and got rid of it too quickly to really be able to tell if I liked it.

Thought I would try one of the older ones and saw this one so I snapped it up.

First impression? After cleaning it up and changing strings and such, this thing rocks. It is very solidly built, plays very nicely, even with the fretwear on the jumbo frets. The only thing that is throwing me off is the Kahler trem. What a different design than I'm used too. Not bad, just different. It is nice and smooth though. Not that I use the trem a ton.

Here she is. The color is black cherry, weird color, looks brown in some light, purple in others. Not the prettiest guitar I have owned but will get some use.

Yes, from what I can tell it is original. Kahler 2300 trem. Pickups are jackson logo'd. Charvel Tm neck.

The neck is awesome!!! Changed strings, cleaned the fretboard and put some fast fret on, it flies.
