Description: 

The Charvel Model 8M is a very rare Import Charvel super strat. It resembles the Charvel Spectrum differing only in the headstock used, which is a reverse headstock. It features an SSS pickup configuration with three Jackson J-200 dual coil pickups. It is said that it holds many of the details (neck profile, fingerboard radius etc) of Jeff Beck's Jackson Soloist. It also features Jackson's active electronics system (JE-1200)

Other features are

  • Jackson Chrome JT6 Tremolo
  • Matching headstock color
  • Maple fingerboard

The only difference with the Charvel Model 8 is this guitar featured a maple fingerboard.
