Up for sale, a 1991 Charvel by Jackson DK-080-SH in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. Made at the Chu Shin factory in Japan and sold exclusively to the Japanese domestic market, this shred-ready Charvel was part of the Dinky Custom series, with visually distinct features including a reverse headstock and reverse sharkfin inlay. Tonewoods include a poplar body, satin-finished quartersawn rock maple neck, and 22 fret slab rosewood fretboard.
The bridge pickup is a Jackson J90 ultra high-output, distortion class humbucker, and the neck single coil is a J-100XL featuring Alnico V magnet construction. The J-100XL has ample single coil snap and cut, and the J90 is big and bold, delivering thick, ripping drive that translates to monster chords and singing, white-hot melodic playing. This Charvel weighs 7lbs 9oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 9-42 strings, slinky action, and accurate intonation.
The quartersawn rock maple neck has a very slender D-shaped profile carve with full shoulders in every register, measuring .755” deep at the 1st fret and .890” at the 12th. The slab rosewood fretboard features reverse shark fin inlay and a 12-16” compound radius, and the jumbo fretwire exhibits light wear beneath all strings on the crowns of frets 1-4, with wear extending beneath the plain strings to fret 9. This guitar plays cleanly up the 25 1/2“ scale with a straight neck and a responsive, optimally-adjusted truss rod, and the neck heel is "scalloped" (contoured) for increased access to the highest frets. The locking nut ensures pitch stability against the most dynamic of dives via the stock Schaller FLC-202 tremolo, and the nut measures 1.650” (42mm) in width. On the reverse headstock, the original black Jackson-branded tuning machines turn smoothly and hold accurate pitch, and the back of the headstock retains the transparent model sticker.
All of the electronics work as they should, with a single Master Volume knob and three-way pickup selector switch governing the Jackson SH pickup array. All of the original black hardware is present and clean, including the single dome-topped knurled knob and the Schaller FLC-202 tremolo.
Cosmetic wear on the gloss Snow White finish is limited to a number of dings along the lower bout, as well as light buckle rash across the bass side of the back and a handful of faint scratches in the clear coat on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains its smooth satin finish.
A Gator-brand gigbag is included.
