So, I have someone offering me a pretty good deal on a guitar, because he's strapped for cash. He says its a Jackson Chevelle, in great condition. Now, looking it up on google, I don't get any results.

So my question is, anyone ever heard of this guitar? And is it a worthwhile one to check out? Thanks!

Charvel looks right. I really don't have any other information on it, unfortunately. I plan on going out and looking at it. Any information regarding these guitars, and quality there-of would be awesomely appreciated.


Also- I'm kinda a newbie at buying guitars. What should I look for regarding the purchase? What should I know?

I DO know that neck warping is bad, and to watch out for that. Any thing else?

dont buy it unless you know how to humidify and set a neck properly.. thats why he's selling it cheap, not cause he's strapped
#5
lol, no I mean, I know to look out for neck warping. Sorry, I wasn't very clear x.x

I have no idea whether the guitar has a warped neck or not.

Hell Jackson Charvels are good guitars. If it's in decent shape go for it.

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

What would be a decent price for say, a lower end model?

Looks like this one (at least):

Thus, the Model 1. Basswood body, maple neck, some Jackson own high-output humbucker. A tremolo of the more traditional type. Most likely made in Japan. I'd throw a price estimate of 300 bucks depending on condition of course. The frets are most likely worn, beware of that.

Depends what model, how much it sold for, condition and how much your willing to pay.

If it were me, I wouldn't pay over a hundred bucks.

Charvels are generally considered to be good guitars, but the model 1 is kinda basic, single pickup, simple trem, so I would pay less than for something with a floyd or three pickups or fancy wiring. But if its in good condition and feels nice, it could be the one you love and that's priceless.

Charvels are sweet. I cant help with pricing etc, but if its in nice condition and you like the feel Id say go for it.
#12
Sure its a Charvel?

Not one of the cheap ones, the Charvette? Which although nice, arent worth alot.

Well.. this is a Chevelle

Charvels and Jacksons are amazing. If there arent any problems then youll love it
Well hold on there a minute cowboy..

There are at least three or four different incarnations of the Charvel company and a few more of Jackson. The guitars made by those companies are kind of like Chevys in a way. They range from a few outstanding models to complete and utter crap.

Bottom line if you don't know what your buying or can't tell us don't pay much.
