You will miss out on some very well built MIJ Charvel guitars from the mid 80's with this thinking. I had a 1986 Charvel model 4 that I bought brand new and it was an awesome well made guitar. Back in the 80's Jackson was a custom made to order company, so if you wanted a Jackson but didn't have a lot of money you bought a MIJ Charvel guitar. Later on Jackson brought out the Professional series and that led to cheaper more affordable Jackson guitar models that are available today. Funny how Charvel went back to being a high end guitar line again.
