1980s Charvel by Jackson Model 2 Super Strat Vintage Electric Guitar Red w/ Kahler, Japan


+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1980's Charvel by Jackson Model 2 electric guitar in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Made at the Chu Shin factory in Japan as part of a licensing agreement between IMC and Charvel/Jackson, the Model 2 is a pure, no-frills Super Strat with a single Jackson 90C humbucker, single Volume knob, and Kahler 2520 Traditional Fulcrum Tremolo. With the locking tremolo and slab rosewood fretboard differentiating the Model 2 from the Model 1, this guitar features a quartersawn maple neck and basswood body. The sound is immediate and clear, with the added warmth of the rosewood board, providing an ideal acoustic platform for the high gain crunch of the 90C ceramic magnet humbucker. Weighing 8lbs 4oz, this Charvel has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, spot-on intonation, and fast action.

The quatersawn rock maple neck has a slender and fast-feeling D shaped profile carve with prominent shoulder, measuring .755” deep at the 1st fret and .860” at the 12th. The thick slab 22 fret rosewood fretboard features dot inlay and the original jumbo fretwire which has ample meat and crown, showing virtually no wear and playing cleanly in every register up straight neck. The scale length measures 25 1/2“, and the locking nut measures 1 11/16” in width, ensuring ideal stability against the most dynamic of dives with the Kahler tremolo system. On the headstock, the original black Jackson-branded Gotoh-made tuners are present and turn smoothly.

The electronics function as intended, with a single Volume knob coupled to the Jackson humbucker. The Kahler 2520 tremolo is a very effective piece of hardware with brass roller saddles and a quick, fluid response, complete with the original arm. Cosmetic wear on the gloss Red finish includes some scuffing across the strum path, some scattered shallow dings on the body as a whole, and a few minor scuffs on the back. The gloss finish on the neck is smooth and clean, exhibiting only a few tiny marks on the profile length

A gigbag is included.
