    Default Is this a fake?

    Whats the deal with this? The stripes are way off from the one that I had. Did charvel make a different batch at a earlier time?

    Looks like your instincts were right on Rat.
    The stripes were way off and to the best of my knowledge, Charvel never used black pinstripes on their R/W/B Art Series guitar.
    But I have to admit, everything else right down to the hologram looked spot on.

    I dunno Ron ... I agree it's ugly, but that doesn't necessarily make it a fake.
    I've said it before ... someone would have to go to a whole lot of trouble and spend a whole lottta money trying to replicate an Art Series neck plate and hologram then it's probably worth.

    Yes, it can be done.
    I just don't think it would be worth the trouble.

    Yeah .. I'm not a big fan of the Art Series guitars either.
    IMO, they're pretty insulting to EvH and those builders who have gone to great lengths to reproduce accurate replicas.

    The sad thing is ... alot of folks will pay $2k for these guitars simply because of the Charvel name or because they're lead to believe they will oneday be "collectable" and/or "valuable".

    To each his own.

    Could be the photo's but the paint also looks quite dull where the flash or whatever is reflecting. Kind of diffused. Not at all like the ART series that are on the wall in my local store. Those things will blind you the are so shiney!

    It is authentic. It looks like it was one of the first ones done where a graphic artistic probably striped them.

    You'd be surprised how many folks don't even bother cleaning their guitars before they take pics and post them on ebay. You'd also be surprised at how many folks don't know how to take a decent pic.

    I'm just say'n.

    Not to be rude, but what the hell is a "graphic artistic"?
    If you mean "graphic artist", well ... I'm not sure if there is such a position with Charvel, but if there is, I would have expected a helluva better paintjob.
