*Due to the big amount of interest in the item I have decided to send this to auction*

Up for sale today is a gorgeous 60's Egmond/Rosetti electric guitar.


 The Body


Similar body shape to the Fe***r Jaguar. 

3 pickups (Bridge, Middle, Neck) 

Features original wiring & pickups (still in great condition.)

The guitar is finished with an original, unusual vinyl covering (all the other Egmond models of this type I've seen have had the traditional paint finish.) It has started to come off in one place (pictured) but can be easily glued in place.

6 way pickup switch giving you lots of combinations

 Volume & Tone knobs

 All the pots, jack & switches work great with no scratches

Scratchplate has that lovely vintage yellowed colour to it, with just a small ding to it (pictured.) 

Awesome 50's/60's style chrome strip running around the edge of the body

Floating bridge & Tremolo (Stays in tune!)

Bridge is fully adjustable for height & intonation

The Neck

Straight neck

Truss rod in perfect condition!

Gorgeous str*t style headstock

Inlayed logo still in great condition

Zero Fret

Chrome nut cover

Rosewood fingerboard

The frets and nut (no splits/chips) are in brilliant condition & still have loads of life to them, no re-fret needed.

Original tuners still turning smoothly & staying in tune. (Unfortunately I have lost 5 of the 6 bushings) 

The tuner buttons have a sweet looking patina to them, so I've had them sprayed with a clear coat of lacquer to stop them from being damaged.

The back of the neck has also had the same expert treatment with an extremely thin coat of satin lacquer on top of the original as it was starting to flake off after over 40 years of use. The tint you see is the original lacquer and you can still see the awesome patina of the original coat very clearly :) It also means that the serial number and 'Country of Origin' sticker have been preserved for many years to come :)

The Guitar

The amount of combinations you can get from the 3 pickups means it has a really diverse sound. The bridge pickup is especially twangy with a lot of bite, very similar to a Tele. Whereas the neck pickup's position is a very 'warm & fat' sound for all of your mellow jazzy sounds or lead parts. Using the 6 way pickup switch though means you can dial in your own tone very easily. 

I've setup the neck to how I like it along with .09-.42 gauge strings but as always I recommend you have it setup to your own taste & specification.

As I've mentioned the guitar is over 40 years old & I've loved owning it, it's been extremely well looked after but because of it's age she does have the nicks & scratches associated with guitars of this age. It is however in brilliant condition for it's age as you can see from the photos. The chrome does have a bit of the expected pitting but the good news is that none of it is flaking :)

If you have any other questions feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer, she'll be packed extremely well if you choose to have her delivered & it'll be insured. I'm gutted to be selling her but unfortunately I'm in need of the cash.

Please contact me if you have a feedback score of less than 10 and if you would require international postage.
