Right you lot.  It’s Mr Moans’s Big Summer Sale.  Check out this array of uber-sexy guitar-flesh and come at me waving big greasy wads of bunce.  Not really up for trades on these as I’ve been a silly sod and spent rather more than I should on once-in-a-lifetime never-to-be-repeated vintage type things that I’ll no doubt seek to flip come September.

 

First for the chop is this refined and elegant K-Line Truxton.  This is one of those ones that’s been through several people’s hands on here, because we’re all raving mad, and came to me in a recent trade.  Beautiful guitar, flawless build quality - custom shop or better, Klein pickups, it’s light - weighs in at about 6.7 lbs/3.050 kg (edited after a stewards' inquiry at the instigation of that @fretfinder one).  A few minor dings shown in the pictures wot I snaffled from previous listings (hope nobody minds).  Comes in G&G hard case.  A snip at £1250.  ****EDIT now sold****

 

Second is the legendary Feline Lion Supreme Slash 2.  Selling this hurts, but I’ve recently grabbed a proper vintage LP and cannot justify keeping both.  You all know the quality of these things and it is genuinely the best put together guitar I’ve played.  It’s the one on the right pictured with its big brother in the photos.  Condition is immaculate.  Yours for £2k.

***BARGAINS!!  MUCH CHEAPNESS!!  I MAKE YOU GOOD PRICE!! £1800 TAKES IT.  WHOO YEAH!!*** 

****EDIT now sold****

Last up is something really special: my B&G Little Sister Private Build in this rather fetching lemon burst.  Hand crafted in Israel of all places, these exude hand built quality.  There’s a bunch of information about them on their website detailing how long they take to painstakingly handcraft each one with unicorns’ horns and angels’ tears and all that malarkey.  The handwound P90s are a work of art in their own right.  Purchased new by me last September/October but has mainly sat in its case since as I’ve been a frightful tart with Jazzmasters and Les Pauls since then.  Comes in immaculate B&G hard case with COA.  These retail at a shade under £4k; looking for £3,250 for this beauty.

***Mad prices crazy bargains etc now reduced to £3k straight.  Get in!!!***

    In answer to a flood of inquiries about the neck profile on the Feline, I’m rubbish at describing this stuff so will defer to the master.

    According to Jon at Feline Fingerboard radius is 12” and it has Dunlop 6000 frets (0.116 wide x 0.058” tall);
    neck dimensions are 21.5mm at the first fret and about 23mm at the 12th fret.

    I had a quick play in this guitar at the Doc’s a while back and it’s beautifully made, very large frets, slim neck, lovely neck joint, and quite light for a LP iirc.

    the neck profile is like a slightly slimmer '59 profile. not as wide/slim feel as the '60 profile - sort of like a '59 that shrunk a tiny bit. It was a nice profile and surprisingly easy in the hand.

    Somebody needs to help @JerkMoans our local Self-confessed Blues Lawyer out here. He's a great guy to deal with and a miracle worker when it comes to surreptitiously moving the Sun past the yardarm, as I found out recently when I visited him in his London lair.
