Batman Charvel

Charvel SanDimas Custom
Batman Custom Painted 1980's Charvel

If the 60’s were the Golden age of Cool Guitars,  the 80’s were Silver. You had to make a statement with custom painted guitar! Manufacturers couldn’t keep up with the demand and often solicited outside for ideas. We made this Batman themed guitar around the time of the first Batman movie with Michael Keaton. I didn’t even know what the movie was gonna look like, so I just went with the vintage Batman. The blue body, white top, and 60’s TV theme seemed to work, and Charvel handed the guitar to many endorsers through the 80’s and 90’s.

I was once shown a video of Vinnie Moore using it.
