So I couldn't leave this behind when I found it on Tuesday in a local music store :nono
I know some peeps consider these Charvette's to be useless low end plywood trash BUT these 270's were made in Japan at the same factory that made all the Model series & Fusion guitars at the time :thumbs
So it has a basswood body with a 24 fret 24.75 scale length neck, a decent Charvel/Jackson locking trem/tuners & pups, it plays & sounds great too :thumbs
Best thing is, it only cost me £150/$180 & it's in pretty minty condition :headbang

Very nice. Good looking guitar. 1989 was a very good year.

Hang on to her bud....she's only an ofr and a bridge pickup away from being the best she can be :hit :hit :hit

I'd be willing to bet the body below has the same birthplace as yours....89-90 Fusion that some dildo added a tone knob to. Dammit why did I let that one go :bang :bang :bang :bang

Bruce, i hear what you're sayin' about the hum & bridge but to be honest the pup is ok, I've taken it to rehearsals & it sounds just fine :headbang Also, amazingly this axe has had so very few hours of play time that the licenced floyd still holds good tune with lots of abuse!
So for the time being anyway it can stay just as it is but in the future who knows shrug
