A few quick shot of a very rare Japan market only Jake ELee guitar from Charvel Japan, made in 1993, which was the last year these were offered. (Ran from '91 to '93)

MAN--- I have been GASing for a Charvel!

I've always wanted a Charvel too and when I'd be saving the money something else would come up. However, this popped up and I couldn't let it pass :)

The angled neck and middle pickups caught my eye

Yes it's an unusual configuration; apparently he wanted to mimic how the stings and pickups were on Jimi Hendrixs strat and had is 70's sunburst hardtail strat modified and the headstock shaved/reshaped. Not many Japanese hardtails out there except for some in the early 90's from Fender Japan (to the best of my knowledge ).

It's a trick for reducing the bassiness on the heavier strings while giving a thicker sound for the higher strings. If you angle them the other way it has the opposite effect

Sweet Charvel! I've been on a Jake E. Lee kick lately and really dying to play one of these! Such an underrated guitarist - I even like his more recent stuff with the Red Dragon Cartel. I wish there was a double like button.....

I hear Charvel just reissued these.
