About This Listing

Note: The first pic is the latest after a service. The bridge was adjusted & balanced 12" radius.

Presenting a 1990 Charvel 650XL with a sort of gold bronze sparkle. It might have been platinum turned gold.
The guitar finish is difficult to capture in the present light conditions. Except for slight discolouration if has no cracks, breaks or repairs. The tremolo arm is in the last pic. The guitar will ship in a generic HARDCASE well packed and padded by air freight to your destination. It is fully functional. I do not have the original hardcase.
It carries an active circuit. I will have to remove the battery and ship.

Series name:
Charvel Professional Series
Dates of manufacture:
1988 to 1991
CHARVEL made the 650 XL Professional between 1988 and 1991.

The 650 XL Professional was a custom version of the 550XL. This guitar used the same active pickups and circuitry as the Classic Series 475 Special model. The additional middle position pickup further increased the tonal variations. Jackson (shark tooth) pearl inlays and a bound rosewood fingerboard further enhanced its appearance.

Black hardware includes a Floyd Rose licensed double locking tremolo, two J200 bi-level humbuckers at the neck, middle position and one J50-BC humbucker at the bridge. Controls are three knobs: master volume and two tone knobs and a five-way pickup switch.

Finish options were snow white, pearl blue, pearl red, magenta, platinum, desert crackle and metallic black, with matching headstock and body.

(Source 1989 Jackson/Charvel catalog).

In the 1991 Jackson/Charvel catalog the 650 model is described as the 650 Custom (see second photo above): this model has neck-through "Soloist" construction, with JE-1200 active midboost circuitry. It was endorsed by Hank Decken of the band Nevada Beach.
