My older Jackson guitars are falling apart. They were built in 1986 and 1987, have been all over the world and.. well.. they needed restoration.

So, a while back, I decide to go with Charvel guitars and bought a pair of them. They played great and sounded even better.

So.. my newest acquisitions :

The ONLY differences in them are the hardwares color ( one has Chrome, the other black ) and the color of the straps.

I built them ordering parts from ' The Stratosphere ' on E-bay. He gets parts from damaged guitars and ' blemished ' items and strips them down.. sells the parts individually.

Usually, these guitars new sell for 850$. I think it cost me about 700 each to build them.

The problem I ran into is the older Jacksons are a 24fret system. The Charvels are 21. The Fret sizing and neck radius are different. Theres more space on the neck surface of the Charvels which works great for my longer fingers.. BUT ( theres always a ' but '.. ) after playing so cramped for such a long time.. I find myself missing notes sometimes.

Its just a bit of adjusting on my part that is needed.


What does ' factory ' mean?

That is the strangest double neck guitar I have ever seen! I know what you mean about adjusting to different fret sizes. Going from my acoustic Washburn to my Strat can be a trip. I really prefer the Strat's neck though, much faster and easier for my small but manly meathooks to get around.
