Description This is a 1985 Charvel/Jackson Model 4, and frankly, it plays like a dream...low action, quiet pickups, good variety of sounds. Collecting showpieces ain't my bag, baby!

Frankly, it rocks and you can't get much more versatile. These guitars are often overlooked, so be different, be smart, and get one or twelve!
Model Year: 1988
Price: $225.00
Where Obtained: collector
Features:
It's the Swiss Army of guitars, with the Jackson picksup, mini toggles, and active mid-boost.
Playability:
It was born in the shred years and it lives up to its heritage.
Sound Quality:
Perhaps not twangy enough for the authentic country gig but...
Durability:
It's 15 years old and still going strong!

Where Obtained: sid's mesilla valley music
Features:
Made in us 22 frets jumbo one volume one pick up emg 81 active elect emg 81 custom finnish "strat" style body floyd rose copy ( liscened)
Playability:
I set up all my guitars w/ a low fast action the neck affects my playing in a very positive manner It plays good but not as good as my soloist the only flaw Iv'e found is no tonal diversity
Sound Quality:
I use marshall "master volumes" jcm 800 series rock n roll guitar fits great! not well suited for other styles very mush a humbucker sound compares very well w/ other axes( of its type) PUT in an EMG 81 very quiet....shhh better for the stage
Durability:
Very reliable set it once, still plays killer! guitar is great shape
