    Default Purchased a Charvel Art Series - Price has dropped

    I have always liked the Charvel Art Series, but the price kept me away. Last week I was in a Sam Ash, and noticed they had two red EVH art series, and th price was $1,799.

    These were not blems by the way. Very nice guitar, it plays beautifully, and the price is something I now consider realistic.

    Just thought I'd pass it on.

    Talking about a new guitar and NOT sporting some pics is bad.

    The one I bought about three weeks ago was about $1700. I thought that was the normal price. Ooops. Guess I got lucky and didn't find it any earlier.

    They were around $2,500 initially. (Wasn't the list something like $3,200?) It seems they've been going for around $16,000-$18,000 now. That's still more than I paid for my most expensive Wolfgang custom shop.

    Default Damn I got a good deal!

    I recently purchased an EVH Art Series (Red, Black, and White) from Guitar Center for $1,454.58 plus tax. They charged me an additional $115.42 for the hardshell case. Tax was $129.53. Total charge was $1,699.53. Not bad huh?

    They charged you extra for the case? Am I to understand the listed price of a Charvel EVH Art Series guitar does not include a hardshell case?

    The case should have been included. I hate when music stores do that to people. I had a store try that crap on me years ago when I was buying a brand new Les Paul. They wanted to charge me an additional $200.00 for the case the guitar came in! I actually picked up the phone to call Gibson to prove to them that Les Paul Standards came with the case (of course, they already knew this, they were just trying to make some extra $$$). After that they gave me the case, and of course, made it sound like they were doing me a big favor.

    END RANT

    p.s. Good score on the guitar btw. But if it was me, I'd be going back and demanding a refund on the case.

    Relevant...maybe not....legendary and highly noteable band....yes.

    I think we all agree the initial asking price was a little steep. My point was just to give a heads up to anyone interested in the Charvel at the price I paid.

    In my occasional trolls on eBay for gear, the Art Series guitars are at about $1,600 or so right now. And that includes the case.

    "Blem" simply means "blemish", or that the guitar has a zit.

    Ok, that was stupid.

    It just means that the guitar was bought and returned to the site you are buying it from. Someone may have gotten it, and decided it wasn't worth the money, or it just wasn't what they wanted and sent it back. It doesn't mean that it's actually scratched or dinged. Unsually, you can call the site and someone can tell you if there is any visible damage or if it was just a customer return...

    ~Peace
