Question Strange Charvel...

Hello folks!
The school I'm attending owns two electric guitars. One of them is a Epi Les Paul , but sadly over the last year no one cared for her and the strings are probably 1 1/2+years old. The other one is an old Charvel Superstrat, which spent the last year in the clost with the tremolo sunk in the body. It has a bolt on neck with a neck joint angled towards the front of the body and a cast neck plate. It is red, has a rosewood fingerboard with dots, an Jackson style headstock with Charvel logo and a locking nut. It uses a recessed single locking floyd rose style trem. Now the strange part, it has two bridge pickups. They are two single coils , slightly angled like a strat, but if you don't look closely it seems like a humbucker. It also features a neck single coil pickup.

Could you please tell me what model it is and how much it worth is?
I may have a chance to get it, since I am the first one to actually care about it. You should have seen the look on our guitar teacher's face, when I showed it to him, with a fresh set of strings, perfectly set up, playin' some METAL.

I know, that this is an Ibanez forum, but hey some people may know something, since lately some threads about Charvels popped up.

Re: Strange Charvel...

Sorry no pics yet. I can post some on monday since the weekend just started and we can't get in school. Btw. it doesnt have a standard strat body. It's sharper and has spikier horns. I looked at some pics of the guitar mentioned above. Definately not. But thanks for the efforts

Re: Strange Charvel...

Thanks, I just figured it out by searchin "Charvel" in Google image search for an hour...DAMN WASTED TIME. Do you know if it is good quality? Also if I can score it i would change the trem to a double locking one. Any suggestion that may fit?

Re: Strange Charvel...

worked on one of those once, great guitar! worked on a green one for a customer, swapped out chrome floyd rose for a gold speedloader. Fortunately, i was able to spare it from being cut up. Plays a LOT better now :-)
