|I have had the pleasure of meeting and
interacting (emailing, phone calls, chat boards and face to face) with many cool people in
my quest for Charvel knowledge that I have to start off my credit page by simply saying:
"there are no better people than my fellow Charvel/Jackson enthusiasts". I have
been humbled many times with how honest, kind and helpful most fellow enthusiasts have
been to me, simply amazing. By far my journeys have resulted in excellent interactions and
many friendships which out weigh the 3 in particular people that I rather not remember.
|First off I want to thank two great
Gabryelski and Jim Shine for sharing my passion for this site and all
their work to ensure that the USACharvels site, USACharvels
discussion board and most importantly the USACharvels online community stays current,
fun and informative. I can not thank these guys enough for helping me realize my dream of
offering a Charvel resource/site on the worldwide web and a place to share my Charvel
guitar collection that I have been lucky enough to acquire with fellow Charvel
enthusaists. Thanks guys for making it all happen.
|I want to thank Tim Rose for his
contributions to the pre-serialized History section. Tim has more experience with this era
of Charvel production than most of us noting that he had some 15 examples from the
pre-serialized era in his collection at one time. Thanks Tim for all your help in writing
this section and for your friendship over the years.
|A big thank you to Robert Witte for the
inspiration after enjoying his earlier websites pertaining to Jackson guitars. I spent
many hours drooling over his remarkable collection over the years. I also want to thank
Rob for all our conversations and some smooth guitar deals. Thanks again Rob.
|Another outstanding site dedicated to
Charvel guitars is Bret Dennis' www.sandimascharvel.com
. Bret was the one of the main people that got me into Charvels and has been a great
friend to me over the years. Thanks Bret for all your help in making my journey and
collection so cool. I could not have done it without you.
|Big thanks to Michael Hill (aka
Hossman) for being a stand up guy and for allowing me to use some of the history found on
his website, www.jacksoncharvelworld.net . I also want to thank Hoss
for his friendship over the years. Thanks my man you have a heart of gold and did I
mention Hoss is also the proud owner of the Hot Rod Flame Charvel that appeared on the
1981 flyer cover...yummy!!!!
|Very big THANKS to Otto, Larry L, Ralph
E, John J and Dave H for helping me and answering all my stupid questions and inquires
when I was a newbie. Special thanks to Larry L for the early version of the serial number
list (spreadsheet with serial numbers and descriptions of Charvels that have surfaced with
time that he and Bret compiled) and to Dave H for not only helping me learn back in the
day but for also selling me the RedRum Charvel.
|A big thanks also goes to Sully for putting up with me and making this site (my
baby) a reality. I drove him to the bottle many a night as I wanted things changed or
added to the site. Sully designed the original version of this site for me and I obviously
could not have done it without him.
|Special thanks also to my good friends
Chad A, Leo, Jim Shine, Gary V, Tommy the Atomic Noodle, Brett C, Brad K, Kev, Yoga and
all my online friends over on the JCF.
Thanks to all for making the sharing of information, opinions and posting pictures and
stories of our favorite guitars so much fun.
|I hope you enjoy and find my labor of
love (this site) of value. Furthermore, I hope you enjoy all the guitar eye candy
(pictures) as much as I do. I love talking Charvel guitars so please feel free to contact
me if you have any questions or more importantly a San Dimas Charvel to sell me!
|Enjoy the site and THANKS to all the
cool people that share the same enthusiasm for these
