how do you talk about Michael Jackson unless you begin with Prince Screws?
Prince Screws was an Alabama cotton-plantation slave who became a tenant farmer after the Civil War, likely on his old master's land. And that man's son, Prince Screws III, left home for Indiana, where he found work as a Pullman porter, part of the exodus of southern blacks to the northern industrial cities. This last Prince Screws, the one who went north, would have no sons. Kattie gave birth to ten children, the eighth a boy, Michael—who would name his sons Prince, to honor his mother, whom he adored, and to signal a restoration. His eldest brothers were at one time children who dreamed of child stardom. By the time he achieves something like self-awareness, he is a child star. Alone, he puts on classical records, because he finds they soothe his mind.

As the bolt-neck custom-built Charvel guitars gained popularity with the up-and- coming West Coast rock musicians, it became a necessity that standardized models were established.
By 1983, neck- through designs were introduced with the Jackson logo on the headstock.
The Jackson name went on the Rhoads rather than the Charvel name because he felt the design was too shocking for Charvel’s regular customers.
