    1992 – 12-String Thin-line Tangerine Maple Flame Top – $1300 + $100 shipping (US) Picks are here:
    https://reverb.com/item/6819871-charvel-surfcaster-12-string-thin-line-1992-tangerine-maple-flame

    This Charvel Surfcaster 12 thin-line is the
    answer to you electric 12 string dreams!   This guitar plays as easy
    as any Charvel/Jackson guitar but has the appearance / vibe of many various
    guitars from the 60’s. This guitar can emulate a Rickenbacker 12, Silvertone 12 with ease, but that is not why I like it. It truly has a unique sound and is so easy to play and THAT is what I love about it  VERY versatile!

    It has a gorgeous white pearloid pickguard and matching truss rod cover!

    I have owned this guitar since 2005 and have enjoyed playing and
    recording with it.

    A guitar neck is your ‘connection’ to your music.  
    Charvel neck profiles have been hailed for decades by guitarists from all
    genres as being one of the easiest to play and most comfortable.  
    The neck has a very comfortable thin to medium neck shape/profile indicative of
    many Charvel’s and the satin finish on the back feels very smooth to
    my hand. One of the pics show the back of the neck. As you will be
    able to notice this is not a once piece neck but the grain is very
    straight and destined for a lifetime of stability.  

    Neck is true.
    No twists, hi frets or rattle. Truss rod works great. The rich Rosewood
    fingerboard has white pearloid shark fine inlays up and down the 24
    jumbo crowned frets.  

    It has a chambered body made of Mahogany with a
    Tangerine flame maple top.  This beautiful top is also bound and it
    is a nice border to the natural Mahogany back and sides. The Tangerine flame maple finish is even adorned on the bound flame maple head-stock!

    This awesome axe has a 3 way toggle switch to engage each of
    the single coil Chandler lipstick single coil pickups.

    When the Chandler USA made lipstick
    chrome pickups are engaged @ the same time they are ‘humbucking’
    and will cancel 60 cycle hum!

    This Charvel Surfcaster also sports a push push (not push
    /pull) tone control that not only rolls of hi frequencies but also will toggle
    between parallel and series when the pickups are engaged together. (3 way
    toggle in middle / straight up position)  

    This allows the user to go from a very clean ‘Wind Cries
    Mary’ (Strat® pick up with Neck and Middle engaged ) sounds while in
    parallel and then to very  fat thick tonality when in series! 
    Big Sounds or slicing cleans- it is a very fun guitar to play. There is also a
    increase in output in the series mode so great for single lines or leads!
    (also still hum cancelling in series as both pickups are engaged)
          This was also a mod done by a
    Charvel/Fender employee/tech.

    Previously it was wired to have the out of phase thin and
    brittle low output sound and then the parallel tones that are still available
    on the guitar.   (the catalog deemed it as ‘phase reversal’ )

    Also it is now possible to use 3 way toggle
    as a ‘kill’ switch.   This can give you a cool keyboard
    sound when the push push switch is up and the player is actively toggling
    between the bridge and center position on the 3 way.   This can
    allow you to have the ‘rapid fire’ on off on effect by using
    the 3 way toggle switch.

    The controls are very smooth and fun to do volume swells
    on.  

    The instrument is very comfortable to strap on.  
    It weighs only 7.5 pounds. It has large strap buttons
    indicative of most Jackson/Charvel so your strap will not come off very
    easily.

    The Body also has a sculpted heal so accessing the upper
    register frets is comfortable.   Serial # is on the Neck
    Joint plate and is 383066.   

    If you are not familiar with guitars that were made in this
    Jackson/Charvel plant in Japan… This factory only made Jackson®/Charvel®
    guitars for over 25 years and were continuously trained by USA Jackson
    Custom Shop builders from day one.   I have seen a lot of guitars
    over my life. These guitars are very well made and rival guitars USA made
    products by other manufactures.   

    A Black SKB Molded hard-shell case included that
    fits this guitar as well as any right or left handed Jackson DK/Soloists.
    Guitar fits very snug in this case.

  9. Greetings, surfcaster lovers!

    I have the good fortune to own 4 Surfcaster 12’s at this time, but the bad fortune to need to divest one of them to appease the finances. There are 2 that I am willing to sell, so whichever goes first will decide which one I get to keep! You are welcome to contact me here for an ‘insider’ price- full details are on the eBay listing, but here are the basics:

    Guitar 1 is a Cherryburst 12-string Surfcaster with black logo, Serial #386978. Very minor playwear- One small ding on the top, and the nut has been re-formatted for ‘Ric-style’ string order.

    Guitar 2 is a Trans-Red 12’string Surfcaster with white logo, Serial #379208. Very minor playwear.

    Both guitars are in near-perfect 9+/10 shape, and your selected Surfcaster will arrive to you in a well-fitting, but non-original hardshell case.

    I am located in Utah, USA. Will ship worldwide with the usual caveats.

    Here’s the ebay listing for pics & deets: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1990s-CHARVEL-SURFCASTER-12-STRING-PICK-YOUR-COLOR-HSC-Included-/232099896012?
