Charvel Model 1C in New Orleans, Louisiana

One of the rarest of the early MIJ Charvels, the Model 1C - made in 1988 only. In good condition, well played but not beat-up. Has the expected playwear, and various minor cosmetic issues - see the pictures.

The Charvel Model 1C differs from the Charvel Model 1 in that it has two Jackson single coils and one humbucker. The neck is Quarter-Sawn maple, with a compound radius 12"-16" maple finger board with very minor playwear and no dead frets. Very tip of the headstock looks to have been repaired (typical).

Comes with the very cool Charvel gig bag.

I do a basic setup on the guitars I sell:

Clean the entire body

Clean and oil (rosewood or ebony only) the fretboard

Polish the frets

New set of Ernie Ball Super Slinky 9's (8/X/23)

Tune to E Standard

I set the bridge level with body

Set the bridge/string height

Set the bridge pickup height

Adjust truss rod if necessary

I do not stretch the strings, set the intonation, or tighten the 3 lock nuts

Packing and Shipping

I always loosen the strings and support the tremolo

Special care is given to protect the headstock, especially if it is tilt-back

I wrap any accessories away from the guitar

Guitars I ship without a case get completely bubble wrapped, and then surrounded by padding inside the guitar shipping box.

I use Fragile stickers and draw arrows on the box so the carrier does not transport upside down.

I always ship with Reverb's Safe Shipping option via UPS Ground.

The majority find my setups to be just right, and playable without any professional intervention. This setup may not be to your specifications, however. If it does not feel right to you, please consider a full setup to get the guitar dialed in to your preferences.

Photos are part of the description. Check out my other guitars for sale, and follow me for more to come. Any and all questions please ask. I mostly sell vintage B.C. Rich, Charvels and Jacksons - Please keep this in mind when you discover some random imperfection that I may have missed - Perhaps you will be happier with a new guitar instead. Please see my seller feedback for many customers happy with my setup, communication, packing and shipping skills.
