I picked this up for 500 aussie today (500 dollars in australia buys you absolutely fuck all in the way of guitars). Its a 1982 USA charvel telecaster. As far as i know it was custom built so it doesnt have a serial number on the headstock. The guy at the store told me that it was used as a touring guitar by one of alice coopers guitarists in 1982. I dont know how true this is though. It has an ebony board, wooden inlays and schaller tuners. When i got it, it had gold pickup covers with chrome pickup rings . I took the pickups out when restringing to find it had a duncan 59 bridge in the neck, and a JB in the bridge. Plus, it also had a flight case with it (with perfect hinges). Since i left home today with the intention of buying a charvel 750xl, i wasnt too sure about this guitar........ but the sticker on the case sealed the deal!
