Item specifics

Condition: New other (see details) Type: Electric Guitar
No. of Strings: 6 string Right-/ Left-Handed: Right-Handed
This is a chance to own a prototype, handbuilt electric guitar. This is a prototype which may or may not go into full production, although at this stage, it's the only one in the world.

As can be seen, it's rectangular. Believe it or not, this is actually an ergonomic feature of the guitar, and because of the jaunty angle of the neck, it's actually very comfortable to play, either seated or standing.

Design-wise, it's been painted with a union flag design, to give a late 60s, classic mod-style look, which is complemented by the white chickenhead knobs. The red sections of the flag are actually fluorescent, so stand out like a sore thumb under UV light!

As a result of it being a prototype, rather than a full production guitar it's got a few minor imperfections, mainly cosmetic - a few small bumps round the very edges, and the paintwork is not absolutely 100% perfect. Additionally, although the guitar is new, the neck has previously been mounted on another (showpiece) guitar, so in itself is not technically new. This is not an issue, but needs to be mentioned. Note, however, that as can be seen from the picture, this guitar still looks absolutely awesome, and truly unique.

The pickups are a matched pair of Warman 12-Gauge humbuckers, with oversize polepieces, and REALLY rock - they generate a MASSIVE sound. In addition, both are coil tapped, for further tonal options.

Shipping will be about £25 - it isn't a shape that lends itself to a standard package, although collection is also possible from Northwest London. Note that because of Christmas shipping, if you do want this to be shipped, you now probably won't receive it until after Christmas, and I've adjusted the shipping time to reflect this. Naturally, if you collect, this can be managed before.

Grab yourself a guitar that stands out from the crowd - both visually and tonally - this instrument could become a legend..! :)
