A rare chance to purchase not only a beautiful and rare Yamaha SG450 guitar, but also one with a bit of history behind it. The guitar was built in Japan in 1985 and came into the possession of the artist Ciaran Shaman in 1999, having spent its formative years being gigged throughout the north-east of England by a local cover band. From 1999 onwards, under Ciaran's ownership the guitar was covered in psychedelic stickers, some of which still remain, and quickly became his guitar of choice due to its playability and stunning tones. The year 2006 saw the initial meeting of Ciaran with James Arthur via family friends - both artists being local to a small coastal town in the north-east of England. In 2008, during a lengthy and intense song-writing period, James was in need of an electric guitar, himself having only acoustic guitars at that time. Ciaran borrowed James this very guitar, and for a three-month period it was James's main guitar that he used for songwriting. Unfortunately there is no record as to which songs he wrote on it.

Reason for sale: Funding for new art projects. James has very kindly endorsed the sale of the guitar by adding his signature so as to help support the arts.
