+ shipping

Out Of Stock
Up for sale, a 1990 Charvel by Jackson Ark Series AR-070-SSH in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Produced at the Chushin factory in Japan and sold in the Japanese domestic market, this AR-070-SSH is built to shred. Adhering very closely to the specs of the Charvel Model 3, this AR-070 features a quartersawn rock maple neck, a slab rosewood fingerboard, and a poplar body loaded with an SSH pickup complement.

The bridge pickup is a Jackson J90C ultra high-output, distortion class humbucker with an accentuated low frequency response. The pair of single coils are Jackson J100s, delivering classic Strat tones in the neck and middle positions. The five-way blade pickup selector switch offers a variety of voicing options via the HSS configuration from snappy single coil spank to roaring high gain drive. This Charvel weighs 8lbs 1oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, slinky action, and spot-on intonation.
