Near new playing condition,scuff/tiny lacquer chips

Importstrings have another Rare!! Charvel. This is the rarely seen mid 1988~89 Model-3D from the last year of production (Model Series). The Model-3D was at the time Charvel’s answer to the Kramer (Japan) LK-EK Series and ESP’s newly designed Mirage, which were MEGA popular. Undoubtedly George Lynch inspired, who was almost “guitar god” like status at the time in Japan.

The Model-3D is a very simple design, the Jackson U.S.A J-90c Ultra-High output humbucker produces ALOT of volume, flick the 3-way toggle and you get very sweet single coil sounds in the neck with the J-100. A CLASSIC 80’s Metal sounding configuration!!. A year later the Model-3D would later be renamed “The Fusion Deluxe” during the Comtemporary Series, another model the 3DR (Reverse head) would become “The Predator”. Because of the inconsistency during the change over, both models have been seen with reverse/regular necks or sometimes a black painted neck. The Model-3D was a one year only product so, there is not a great deal of them, compared to other Model designs.

This Model-3D is in AWESOME playing condition, it has hardly any ware to the hardware, frets are 80%, body front and back are very clean, although there are a few laquar only dings to the side (They dont really stand out due to the metallic blue), and a couple of small nicks to the head. All in all, still an eye catcher and in fantastic playing condition. This would look good in any collection and definitely one for the hardcore Charvel collector. Getting one of these models is quite hard for us to get in ANY condition.
