Answer
Hi Michael and thanks for writing in! That name tag and almost everything on it is not true. You guitar is most likely made in Japan or Korea. The history of the company goes on like a crooked road with Jackson Guitar being the owner of a guitar company that started in California. Then both being bought out by Fender. Most all of their guitar are imports. I think they are cool, but not very much money. There are several reasons why, the electronics are not very good and the body is most likely plywood. Some are call bass wood and I been told that is plywood. The thing is you are the one that matters. The Charvette was the low priced starter guitars they were replace after only about three years. Those are the reasons they are not received very well. A good player is a good player.
Thank you Michael

Guitars and cats make life so much better. Playing the guitar is a wonderful thing, fixing you guitar is not that hard. I have played since I was a kid and started to fix guitars and the other things that needed repair. I still repair guitars for friends and myself and do enjoy it. I rebuild old guitars to their former condition, all amps and music gear. That the mystery out of where and when a guitar was made. The value of it and the difference between junk and a guitar you can grow old with. Ask me things and have some fun.

Experience

The fascination with electric guitars is the top for me. I fix amps, wiring and put the things that fall off back on. The way to really set a guitar up and make it a player. Buying a guitar is an art, and good amps that will get out that tone we all look for, Zen guitar and amplifier is a way to approach it. Better is no worry ask an expert.
