In 1986 Charvel/Jackson introduced the Model Series of guitars, built in Japan and offering real value for money.  These were hard rocking guitars, at import prices, but with a tremendous build quality that was rare for any guitar manufacturer in the 1980s.  The catalog we’re posting here is from 1986 and we especially like it because, for some reason, it features some cool period shots of New York City (dig those arcade games).  These Model Series guitars are still out there everywhere, they were built to last.  Your author has a soft spot for a particular deep metallic purple Model 6, the hum/single/single neck-through version, that he learned to play guitar on.  It’s still in the family and plays great.  View all 30+ pages of the catalog after the jump.
