1987 Charvel by Jackson Model 2 Vintage Superstrat Black w/ JT6 Floyd Rose, Japan

$1,199.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1987 Charvel by Jackson Model 2 in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag. Produced at the Chu Shin factory in Japan as part of a licensing agreement between IMC and Jackson/Charvel, this no-frills Superstrat features a Floyd Rose-licensed Jackson JT6 tremolo.

The locking tremolo and slab rosewood fretboard differentiates the Model 2 from the Model 1, and 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 J90C ceramic magnet humbucker. This high-output humbucker is built to shred, offering high gain crunch for monster chording and white-hot melodic playing. Weighing 7lbs 13oz, this Model 2 has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, slinky action, and spot-on intonation.

Cosmetic wear on the gloss Black finish is limited to some very light buckle worming on the back, faint scuffing on the top along the strum path, and a couple nigh-imperceptible scratches in the clear coat on the body as a whole. The smooth satin finish on the neck profile is pristine.

The original Charvel-branded padded form-fit gigbag is included.
