  • San Dimas from Texas?

    Were there any San Dimas (or any other Charvels, for that matter) ever built in Forth Worth? I just got what looks to me like a San Dimas. Its U.S. made, With a single coil and a humbucker (both Jackson). It was made in the mid 80s I think. Its got a six digit serial number. Any ideas, anyone? [img]graemlins/eyes.gif[/img]

    There was never a single guitar made in Ft. Worth, Texas. Ft. Worth = Made in Japan. Ft. Worth was just the HQ for the importing company, AMIC which was recently bought out by Fender.

      ITS NOT any charvel with a FT Worth TX plate is made in JAPAN. If its a Charvel with Jackson pickups its NOT USA made.

      The only Charvels made in USA have plates that say SAN DIMAS, CA. & some new CUSTOM SHOP ones.

        Huh??? there were pleny of San Dimas USA Charvels made with Jackson pickups.

        Also, ever seen a San Dimas 1 thru 5 Charvel reissue from the mid-90's? USA made, Ontario plate.

        Any Charvel with a Ft. Worth neckplate = Japan 100% of the time. Before anyone speaks up, the Charvettes from Korea didn't say Ft. Worth on the neckplates.

                  Fort Worth was also the home of IMC, which owned Jackson before AMIC.

                    Ok i should have specified Jackson covered pickups w/ logo on the covers.
                    & yes i forgot about the SD re-issues probably because i dont pay attention to much made after 87, C/J or otherwise. YEAH i live in a SOCIAL BUBBLE

                      <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">You're not the only one. The last new Charvel I ever remember is the Model 88. I come hear and people start talking about Predators and Spectrums and Reissues, and I'm just like "What are they talking about?"

                        Just found out - its a Japanese mad Predator. But none the worse for it. When I have cash, its getting a facelift, though. Methinks some Seymour Duncans, and a black paint job. [img]graemlins/headbang.gif[/img]

                              Not TOTALLY TRUE...ONE Charvel was PART-MADE in Ft. Worth...{I BELIEVE so - ASK Kevin Easton}...

                              The Model 5-As were MIJ {somewhere around 700-1000 ??} with ONE HUM and a Floyd - ala EVH...I GUESS they WEREN'T EXACTLY setting the MARKET on FIRE, as the 1 hum was kinda LIMITED vs. the regular Model 5s and 6s...SO...

                              I HEARD...that the 5-As were NOT sent to ONTARIO, CA. for the SLANTED SINGLE rout to turn them into 5-FX's...BUT...Were INSTEAD routed for the slanted singles at the Ft. Worth REPAIR FACILITY !!!


                              ...am I RIGHT ??...or DEAD WRONG ???


                              BESIDES THAT....AIN'T YA EVER HEARD of SAN DIMAS, TEXAS ????? [img]graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
