Charvel Charvette Series

The Charvette Series was introduced in late 1989 as low priced versions of the Charvel Series imports, with a suggested retail price range of $320 - $500.
My personal notes indicate that the production started with the 170 and 270 models.
They were initially made in Japan by Chushin Gakki, having basswood bodies, but soon the entire production of the Charvette Series was moved to Korea, introducing the use of plywood for the body. So there are most likely both basswood and plywood versions of the 170 and 270 models out there. If any left at all.
