99p start and No Reserve!

This is an excellent example of a Yamaha Studio Lord, made in Japan in the 1980s.

It's clearly based on the Les Paul but with a bolt-on neck rather than a fixed one. Now, as an old man who has always been wary of bolt-on necks on Les Paul type guitars, I'm going to have to reluctantly concede that I can't detect any lack of tone or sustain on this compared to a 'proper'one. Just goes to show.....

For 30-ish years old it's in remarkably good nick. There's a fair few dents and wear marks on the back, but the rest of the guitar is very clean compared to most that I've seen. I've given it the usual full set-up and it plays really well. Yamaha build quality (especially Japanese made) is legendary and as for the sound from the Yamaha humbuckers, you'll have to look long and hard to find better, as everyone says!

I'm selling a bunch of guitars and amps at the moment so please check out my other listings. If you have any questions, feel free to ring me (Richard) on 01233 712169. I'm going to cull about 60 guitars from my oversized collection this year so I may have something you're looking for!

Now, cash on collection is obviously favourite for me but I appreciate that it may be no good for you. If you wish this to be couriered I am quite happy to pack it for you but YOU MUST ARRANGE AND PAY FOR A COURIER YOURSELF. It will therefore be at your own risk and it will be up to you which service you choose and what level of insurance, if any, you specify. It normally costs about £15 uninsured through Parcel2Go or similar. I'll pack it as well as I can but there are no guarantees with couriers so do consider insurance. That said, I've sold loads of guitars and amps on eBay and never had one arrive damaged.
