    Curious if there is a chart somewhere of models from production start till now? ( I’m more focused on the 80’s/ early 90’s) The Spectrum above in the posts is a beaut. But I’m hoping to find a body style with a bridge humbucker / Floyd Rose. eBay has a ton of bodies but they are all for 24 fret necks.

      model 7 neck. that neck should be 2 3/16 at the heel, 25.5 scale. That should fit on any 86-89 model series guitar body. if locking trem is required, you will have to use a behind the nut lock, or modify the head stock for a locking nut.

        Jackson bodies are tricky. there are 22 fret 25.5 jacksons that will work, but there are also 24 fret jacksons with 25.5 wont work, fusions were 24.75 scale and wont work and they will not intonate with that neck. hard do tell from photos if a jackson body was 22 or 24 fret, with out a mesurment from the heel to the bridge.

          I'd call it a Model 7 neck as well. People like to steal these necks and put them on other bodies. It's rare when I see a Model 7 with the correct neck still on it.

            The Model 8 had tremolo, which would mean the headstock would have extra holes for the lock. And most of them were color-matched.
            The Model 7 had the standard black headstock.

              Found a match locally guys! It appears the Charvel Charvette matches. One came up on an Ontario Kijiji ad. Snapped it up for $250.00. Funny enough the headstock on his guitar has a small backsplit from a tuner screw. Going to replace with my neck anyhow. So I got my wish, Floyd Rose / body loaded with pickups and controls and it’s very clean. Will post pics when I do the swap/ transpose the locking nut. Thanks for all your posts/ help guys. I can’t wait to bang out some Ratt/ Dokken riffs on this. ( yes I’m an old washed up 80’s guy)
