Comments This is fun – a 1996 Charvel Surfcaster 12! First introduced in 1991, this take on the electric 12 string guitar uses a chambered mahogany body with a maple cap, and a bolted-on maple neck.

The Surfcaster shows influences from a variety of American manufactures. The stacked tuner arrangement, chambered body and slash soundhole say “Rickenbacker”, the offset body and bolt-on construction are Fender-esque, and the lipstick-tube pickups suggest Danelectro. They all blend together to make a unique and quite playable instrument.

Serial Number 375726, built during 1996 at the Fuji-Gen plant in Japan.
Pricing $650 CAD with case. SOLD
Neck Maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard and classic Charvel slash position markers in mother of pearl. 25 1/2 inch scale length, 1 5/8 inch nut width.
Frets Original frets with minor fretwear.
Body Chambered mahogany body with maple cap; bound slash sound hole. Total weight of the instrument is about 8.8 pounds.
Finish Gloss urethane finish with a couple of minor dings. The top is red, the sides, back and neck are clear gloss.
