|I always wanted to own a U.S.
handmade Charvel. Not long ago, no-one wanted these guitars.
People are now collecting them, and their value is increasing.
I found this one on ebay for
about $500.00. It doesn't quite live up to my dream but
it plays well and sounds good. I replaced the original
Seymour Duncan 58's with EMGs, an 81 in the bridge and a 60
in the neck - same as my model 5. The tremelo is the original
Kahler. The neck has 22 frets, a rosewood fretboard on
a maple neck, and is bolted on.
