Charvel Predator
- Made in Japan in 1989
- Poplar body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard
- 22 jumbo frets
- Micro Jackson J-90 in the bridge position and Jackson J-200 (type Hot Rail) in the neck position
- Bridge Schaller Floyd Rose Licensed
- 1 volume knob, tone knob no, 5-way switch
- Bolt (junction at the 17th fret) with head reversed
- Design Rainbow Crackles


Despite a poplar body this guitar is pretty light, is very well balanced and looks great finisher. Access to acute simple despite the handle screw. Start type body can use both standing than sitting (or kneeling, even, hehe). The handle is a marvel. The only regret is that it only has 22 frets, 24 would have been preferable.


Its level is the slap. The J-90 sends a potato monster. I play mostly heavy metal and large it's a marvel. I used a lot of different amps (Marshall Valvestate 8080, Mesa Boogie Dual, 5150, etc.) with multi-effects (Boss GT-3 and GT-6), and now with software like Amplitube and Revalver. She never let me down, both for the big fat distos well as on the clean (especially with the J-200).


I have since 1989 and I'm not ready to part with it! It was my first good guitar (I pass over the sub-brand low-end to get their teeth ... sorry, fingers) and I've never tired of its versatility, it sends sound monstrous and his mouth ready to do everything rocker peter!

Level quality / price ratio, nothing to say, a guitar of this quality for 1,000 euros (then) it is not everywhere. With the experience I would do this choice, without hesitation!

Charvel Predator
Manufacturing Japan Year 1988 1990.
For mine micro Tone Zone DI Marzio and original neck.
Floyd licence.Scaller easel.
Just a Knob volume ...
Charvel So Channel: size for speed.
For the bend, you really pull the strings because the neck is flat, but what comfort!


As mentioned previously for the handle: the origin of standard guitars upscale brands, nail impeccable!
This is a guitar that demand to be torture, riffs saturax "solos, CASC is natural notes, and guitar great balance.
Knob one volume, everything is done with multi effect or amp.


It is a size guitar for metal, more melodic than the furious ...
The clean sound is incidental, but tell you that if this is not a guitar versatile, it is uncompromising: very very few manufacturers of guitars coming out of such exclusive models and guides, so the few models arrive peg PREDATOR!
No horse or bluesy variet 'Orient you rather to model 3 / 4 or C475 for versatility!


The neck pickup is anecdotal it may possibly serve ... but ... we feel that the guitar is holding back ...
Relatively CHRE the era, about 7000 francs in case she was not distributed as yet too ... too exclusive!
On oocaz for me (thank you AUDIOFANZ! The announcement comes to you!) Is a dream come true for a kid!
Far too CHRE the era, and found today: the dream!
