+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1989 Charvel by Jackson model HSH in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case and user manual. Crafted at the Chu Shin factory in Japan and only produced in 1989, this rare Charvel features a custom color Burgundy Mist gloss finish.

The tonewood complement comprises a basswood body, quartersawn rock maple neck, and 22-fret slab maple fretboard. The pickup complement comprises a pair of Jackson J-80C ceramic magnet humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions and a J-100S single coil in the middle. The J-80C humbuckers are built for gain, delivering huge tones with tight, aggressive lows, balanced by the sparkling cut and snap of the central J-100S single coil.
