About This Listing

This is the most beautiful Charvel Surfcaster I have ever seen.   Beautiful quilt in the dark burst color on the maple top. Just stunning. The nicest darkest rosewood I've seen on a Surfcaster. Plays beautifully. First year production of the humbucker model with the Trapeze C Tail. Rickenbacker eventually sued them and they had to get rid of it. So no more of these ever. This has been in my closet since 1998. Near Mint. No pick swirling on the finish that I can see, no fretwear, small ding on the back that doesn't want to photograph, but I'll take another try with my other camera and post if they come out. There might be another imperceptible indentation or two that if you try hard enough you might be able to feel, but otherwise mint.
There is not really another guitar out there like this anywhere. You can get amazing ringing cleans and chime from the lipstick, and the sound has echoes of both a Telecaster and Rickenbacker, and a nice full surprisingly heavy humbucker tone from the bridge. It's a great humbucker. Full, but with great separation. These Original Surfcasters are truly their own thing. This is a semi-hollow body offset guitar with bound f-hole, Maple top on a mahogany Body.   Original hardshell case,

This guitar has a perfect set-up with the crazy low action that Surfcasters are famous for.

This is a collectors guitar, and should be in the Chrarvel Surfcaster museum, but screw that, you should play it.

This guitar was made at the Fuji-gen Gakki plant in Japan. The Fujigen plant made some of the best production guitars in the world in the 80s and 90s. They made all of the wonderful early charvel surfcasters and the high-end charvel imports from that era. They also made the Richie Blackmore strat and the Yngwie Malmsteen strats from that era with the scalloped necks. They made the ultra high-end Zemaitis guitars from the 90s and 2000s. The cost of production became too expensive at this plant and Zemaitis had to move to Korea a few years ago.
