i have had my charvel desolation star up on craigslist, casually looking for trades.

this popped up. a charel cx-391:







is it a good deal? the guitar i have is pretty much new, only played it for an hour or too. i don't like the shape.

i am not in a rush to trade, so i can wait for another deal.

that is a later period charvel which in my book are always a bit iffy. some of the high end ones were still pretty good but the others weren't of the same quality as the 80s japanese made ones.

ebay sold listing was under $300 (offer accepted so no solid price)

I saw that listing, but its not in as good of shape. I have searched for a while and haven't found a ton of stuff on them.

How much do you think i could sell the body and neck (neckthrough) on ebay and keep the EMG's for myself?

if you have other pickups to put in then i'd go that route. just the guitar with no pickups probably won't get many bites unless it's pretty cheap. aren't those guitars being sold as a closeout right now? if that's the case i'd wait cuz the resale is crap on items like that until they disappear.

^ good point. once they're gone, the resale prices normally go back to around normal.

Don't know anything about older charvels, sorry. Have you checked JCF? They might be able to tell you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

I believe that is the part he didn't like about it due to its location.

yea, thats what i meant. i just edited it in.

i have no idea why they put it there. it digs into your leg. i could deal with it, but if i can find more of what i want i would be happier.

but its just $300 so its not really a big deal.
