Founded by Wayne Charvel in 1974, Charvel Guitars was originally launched as a repair shop for Fender instruments with expired warranties, building a solid reputation among professional guitarists for copying Fender bodies and finishes, and especially Fender necks. Charvel sold the business to his employee, Grover Jackson, in November 1978, after which Jackson progressed the company into manufacturing complete guitars by June 1979.
