Model: Fylde Prospero (1976/77)

This is a Fylde Prospero model, 12 string guitar made by Fylde in 1976 to 1977. This model (but not necessarily this guitar) was made for Gordon Giltrap and you can see Gordon on YouTube playing a very similar model (search for "Gordon Giltrap plays 'Ives Horizon'"). I have contacted Fylde guitars for information about this guitar and received a very helpful response from Roger Bucknall himself.

This is a beautiful sounding guitar that plays very easily. It has had some work done on it in the past and appears to have had the neck removed at some point. You can see that this appears to have been done by cutting through the fret-board at the 12th fret (neck/body joint). The neck has been re-set very firmly, leaving the guitar with a very good neck angle that makes the guitar very comfortable to play. The guitar has been re-fretted and this caused some minor chipping on the fret-board when the old frets were removed but this is entirely un-noticeable when playing the guitar (or indeed looking at it unless you are studying it closely). The fret ends over the body could do with a little attention at the ends, which are protruding very slightly from the fret-board. There is a very slight gap between the heel of the neck and the body at the cut-away, which is about 15mm long. I have had this guitar for several years and the neck has not moved in this time from what I can see so I'm pretty confident that this gap is nothing other than simply a little un-slightly.

There is a chip out of the finish at the end of the head-stock and there is also a crack in the back which is about 6 1/4 inches long. This crack is with the grain and would not be difficult to repair with the right knowledge by the right person. I have tried to show these in the attached pictures.

I am selling this guitar because it is not played and, whilst it has a few war-wounds as described above, I would very happily keep it and expect to get many more years use out of it. I am also very respectful of Fylde guitars and very keen that the new owner knows what they are getting so hence I have tried to be as honest as I can. This guitar does sound beautiful and is genuinely comfortable to play.

I will post this guitar but will be very happy for the buyer to collect in which case cash on collection would be my preferred means of payment.
