Distributed by Jackson/Charvel Guitar Company (Akai Musical Instruments) of Fort Worth, TX. Jackson debuted the Charvel custom guitars at the 1979 NAMM show, and the first catalog depicting the bolt-neck beauties and custom options arrived in 1981.
Charvel instruments were previously manufactured in the U. The standard models from Charvel Manufacturing carried a list price between $880 and $955, and the amount of custom options was staggering.
In the late 1970s, Wayne Charvel´s Guitar Repair shop in Azusa, California acquired a reputation for making custom, high-quality bodies and necks.
In 1983, the Charvel company began offering neck-through models under the Jackson trademark.
Grover Jackson licensed the Charvel trademark to the International Music Corporation (IMC) in 1985; the company was sold to them a year later.
In late 1986, production facilities were moved to Ontario, California.
Distribution eventually switched from Charvel/Jackson to the Jackson/Charvel Guitar company, currently a branch of the Akai Musical Instruments company.

Are thes guitars any good & does anybody know what king of pickups are in them? Worth plate and the # is 231509 it has 1 double coil pickup and only a volume knob no tone control it has the original locking system and tremolo.
Thanks, BC I understand the part about the 6 digit bolt on neck being a Jap. I am just trying to find out the model # and the year it was made.
Any info you can help me with is greatly appreciated.

Grover Jackson began working at the shop in 1977, and a year later bought out Charvel and moved the company to San Dimas.
