This cobalt blue Charvel looks a lot like the Model 3 we already have, but since we could get this one for a bargain price, we could not resist. In real life, the blue is more grey than cobalt but maybe it lost some of its cobaltness in 27 years. Anyway, for a 27-year-old guitar it is in great shape. It has been well maintained and although it shows some dings, it has no big scratches or marks. Unfortunately, the original humbucker and the (active) mid-booster are missing, but the Seymour Duncan Invader clone gives it a nice fat sound nonetheless.
