Item specifics

Condition: Used Size: 4/4
Number of Strings: 6 string Right-/ Left-Handed: Right-Handed
Dexterity: Right-Handed No. of Strings: 6 string
I bought this guitar new around 18months ago through eBay and I've been delighted with it.

It was bought as a prototype model for a company called Bluesbelle and as such the fit and finish is excellent (presumably this guitar was used to secure sponsor funding and retailer orders). 

The guitar has a mahogany body that is slightly slimmer than a traditional Les Paul. It has 5 ply binding to the body and highly figured quilted front and rear caps (even the cavity cover is quilted!!). The neck is bound and features 22 well dressed jumbo frets on an ebony fingerboard with side-markers. The guitar features gold hardware throughout. 

The guitar has been upgraded to include a set of Tonerider Alnico 2 Classic Humbuckers (pretty much Gibson Burstbucker 2 & 3 copies)  with 500k CTS pots, mullard capacitors and 50's spec wiring, a set of sperzel style locking disc tuners have been added to aid tuning stability & mismatched knobs have been added to aid adjustments when singing and a bone nut has recently been fitted and cut by my local luthier. The headstock features an inlaid Lucky Clover logo and no manufacturer name.

I bought it for around £300 and I felt it represented something of a bargain given the specification. Since then I've spent in excess of another £100 on upgrades. 

The original seller stated they were expecting the retail model to have an RRP of £599 and I see no reason why that wouldn't be the case as it plays as well as other similar mainstream overseas guitars in that price bracket eg. ESP, Epiphone, PRS SE etc. I've only seen one other that was identical to the original spec of this guitar but it was a tobacco burst finish with the manufacturers name on the headstock and it was been offered for sale at £495 second hand.

The guitar is well set up and is currently fitted with 11-52 strings with a Gibson specification setup & action. This was my main guitar for around a year but my Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Studio has recently arrived after been on order for over six months. So this now is surplus to requirements (my wife informs me!!).

Usual eBay rules apply eg. any bid is legally binding offer to buy for that price. I'd prefer a local pickup but if not I can post it using my usual courier on their 48 hr service with insurance for around £20 to mainland UK. The guitar has been listed on an auction basis with the highest bid at the auction end winning the guitar. However there is a sensible start price to avoid any tears on my part although this is less than half the amount that I have invested in the guitar. There's also an option to "buy it now" which will end the auction immediately and require the winning bidder to pay the "buy it now" price.

Any questions please ask.
