What kind of guitar is on this album cover?

The album wasn't that good... but does anyone know what kind of guitar is on the cover? Here is a link to a pic:

I know he played Les Pauls early on, but anyone know what model Jackson this is? (I'm assuming it's a Jackson by the body and headstock shape)

I believe it was a 1985 Custom Charvel San Dimas.

Go to about 4:26 in the video and it is propped against a wall. I hope this helps.

What happened to Aldo Nova? I remember he was the next big thing, both in guitar and singer/pop artist on the charts.

Thanks!! Right at 3:19 you can clearly see the Charvel logo too. HSS with one volume, no tone, but three mini switches... Hmmm. I always dug his guitar sound... had a distinct sound like early Boston.

Watching that video was a flashback to the 80's...

First album was a big hit with Fantasy, Monkey on Your Back, etc... Lots of radio play. A lot of the songs were ones he had been playing/refining for a while. I guess he was pretty big around where he lived in Canada before he hit it big. Second and third albums each had a decent song or two, but were pretty lackluster overall. He did a lot of session work and songwriting through the years, like guitar on Bon Jovi's first hit song Runaway. Seems like I read he is still active in the music industry behind the scenes.
