    Chushin (who built the original Japanese Charvels and Jacksons) are long out of business. My guess is that FujiGen is making these, since FMIC has a long history with them.

    That's my guess too. I asked, but was given the cold shoulder. :lol:

    That is good to hear - maybe the PATB will work out as is. Do you happen to know if the 3 (original, PAD, and Crazy 8) share the same bobbin specs/wind? Is it just the magnet swap (A5 vs Ceramic vs A8)?

    I don't think so. I know the original PATB was used by Blues Saraceno til he got his sig version and it's nowhere near as hot as the PAD. Crazy 8 may be a mag swapped version of the PATB but I haven't really looked into it much. There's very little good info about the crazy 8 out there tbh.

    The Charvel MJs released last year were (probably) Dyna Gakki given the JDC serial, and that they exclusively build for Fender Japan. Just have to wait until someone get their hand on one to check the serial, they photoshop them out on the official photos.
