This listing is for a 1996 Charvel Stratocaster copy that's been modded with a set of EMG active pickups.

This guitar has a comfy low action and a slim neck, the CX291 is a sort of entry-level strat so when you sling it over your shoulder you're not exactly blown away by the heft and craftsmanship but it's pretty buttery and easy to play.

This guitar was originally a gift so I don't know the model of the EMG's on there, I got the model year from the serial number. From the look of the pickguard it's a pre-wired Vince Gill model set? That would run you about $300 new, and a new set of EMG's sans-pickguard would be about $250 so that's where most of the cost on this is coming from.

This is a great guitar if you're a modder. The only caveats are the missing backplate, an unfastened battery pack that knocks around a little inside, and two broken strings. Plays fine, but figured you oughta know.

I'll throw in that BC rich hardcase for an extra 50 bucks too, It's made for a Mockingbird I'm selling but if you want it it's yours.
