Charvel Model 8 MIJ 1988 + Brand New Hardshell Case

$ 1668.72

Charvel Model 8 MIJ 1988

For sale – Metallic black Charvel Model 8, made in Japan in 1988.

Equipped with a triple S configuration, licensed Floyd Rose, and a modified jaguar-like pickguard, the Model 8 was unlike any other product offered by the company at the time. A nod to Jeff Beck’s custom orange Soloist

guitar from his mid-80s release: Flash, the Model 8 featured a bolt-on construction paired with a colour-matching reversed headstock.

This particular example is a transition model from the Model Series (1986-88) to the Contemporary Series (1989-1991) when it was rebranded as the Spectrum.  

Features:

  • Unique, clean aesthetic
  • Versatile active pickups and switching system
  • Very clean fretboard
  • Jackson JT6 trem in remarkable condition
  • Fast, glossy neck

This guitar is in spectacular condition, given its age.

The electrics are in perfect working order with the pickups providing a huge variety of tone.

The all-original hardware is untarnished with very little visible wear. One small chip to the body (pictured) is the only visible clue that this example never came from a time-capsule. All backplates are present

Extras:

  • Whammy bar
  • Recent string change
  • Recent clean and setup
  • Choice of Brand new hardshell or original Chainsaw case

All international buyers are welcome but will need to pay shipping, packaging and duty costs relevant to your country.

** PLEASE MESSAGE PRIOR TO BUYING FOR AN ACCURATE SHIPPING QUOTE! **

The guitar will be very well packaged. Photos of this process will be made available to the buyer at this point.
