And it was put into an attic in 1982 until I retrieved it in December 2006 Very Happy

welcome to the gang Lorne..... just so you know for the weekend EVERYONE, AMS is selling stands for 5 bucks each.... I just bought 6 of them.

I see your into pointies Lorne...my FAVORITE!!

I have a dozen Charvel/Jacksons, a Kramer, and a few "others", but anything pointy is a winner in my book.

Here is my G**tar,a980's USA B.C.Rich ST III


It'll be nice IF I ever see it,it's been in my friend's house in Poland for a year or so,but I do have 2 of his guitars in my house LOL

I meant I love anything without a FenderHead on them Smile

but BCR sure has the coolest take on "pointy" Smile..

everyone knows what a Jackson looks like..BUT only 5-6 of these remain in the world, so here's a rare 95Jackson TBX for ya...

and here's one pic of the whole 80's Charvel "model" series model 1,2,3 and 4.
I just have a lot of spares in various colors Smile

and for the REAL extreme Jackson lovers, a matched pair of model 2's
( THE SIAMESE TWINS )

again, welcome to the gang and hope to see you posting a lot more now that you found us.

I actually do have a model 2 Charvel with a Kahler on it, although Eric the MOD could care less if you have a trem or not, I was welcomed into this place with open arms, and have been an active participant for a long time now.

ya they made a "firebird" guitar as well ... It's got a kahler hardtail, 13.5lbs of NTpoplar wings and maple center, and EMG 35j/35p singlecoils in square housings.
Certainly not a typical Gibson Tbird.

and your pic of the Fender'ish headstock is attractive...WHY? cause it DONT SAY FENDER ON IT...lol

I do have a few non- pointy Fenderheads around.....
95 Charvel CHS

2003 Dillion DMB500

1978 Matsumoku

2009 Dillion Cherokee ( prototype, only 1 made )



pointys were always my favorite though...even on guitars Smile

Yeah...it's shiny! It was a nice day. I figured it could catch some rays. Cool The photos are a little washed out, I'll admit.







I don't know why the letters "EMG" are so faint on the pickup housings, but I think it looks pretty sharp.

yep, DS show all 'dem 'dog-gone hillbilly headstock Fenders Smile tongue
they are all still very unique and beautiful basses.

I'm always the first one to admit that Jacksons selection of standard production basses had it's few years of fame and could never compete in the bass market.

long live the 80's Cool Cool Cool Cool

I absolutely Loved the kelly (guitar) I tried, but the body was just too small you know? I'm hardly a small guy and it's body shape wasn't really size appropriate standing up or sitting down. I thought the same thing about the rhoads, just too small.

I'm a uhhhhhhhh *big* dude, no way to even attempt to say otherwise, but most of my fave basses(or guitars) are small bodied, funnily enough, including a home made bass that has the body of a Kelly guitar.
