What's Hot

edited November 11 in Guitars £
I seem to have accrued a large amount of gear over the last 10 years that simply isn't being used. I've taken a decision to stop hoarding and sell off most of it. I know that goes against the grain of Fretboard life but I became a dad for the first time this year and so my priorities have shifted a great deal! 

First up for sale because I already have some recent pics is an Anderson HDTC in chili-red with maple neck. This was previously  listed on eBay for what seems to have been an unrealistic price.  

I haven't used it for quite some time (maybe 5 years) and it's been sat in it's case. Was still perfectly in tune when I took it out to take some pics though, which I think speaks to the quality of these guitars. It's really light and super resonant and plays like b... ehm, let's say it plays very well. 

I'll add full specs and more details later but just throwing this post up to garner interest. Here's some pics... https://photos.app.goo.gl/wMsbmvBzZ7uzMWvy7

Looking for £1800 + delivery of your choice. You're welcome to come and view/collect but I live on a rock in the Atlantic so that's probably not feasible for the vast majority of you!

    I’m afraid that google is not willing to display those pictures, even when I log into google. You might want to check permissions, or host the picture elsewhere.

    I've always fancied a TA and would have been seriously interested to meet up and try out, but just too far away (I'm in North London).  It looks in great condition.. any marks, bumps, scratches, or anything else to point out?

    Is anyone able to see the photos I linked to?  It's in fairly good nick for it's age as it has been unused for a long time. My tastes changed to more vintage flavoured guitars and relics that I didn't have to worry about putting dings in!

     I've tried to show all the wear and dings etc in the photos but it's tough to capture on the gloss black back of the guitar. There are 3 small dings on the top. A couple of dings on the back and some buckle rash and also some marring of the finish where it's been in contact with the bubblewrap that I had taped to the back in order to prevent bucklerash. Oh the irony. Didn't notice it until removing said bubble wrap after it had sat in the case for a few years. 

    The neck and frets are perfect.  Neck and middle pickups are stacked singles (so hum-cancelling), mini toggle switches humbucking/single coil mode, 5-way selector and pull tone knob adds the bridge to neck and neck+middle positions. 

    Here's the info from TA serial number search page...

    Lol!  If Brexit, the US China trade war and markets keep going the way they are (FTSE crashed over 3% down today) no one will have any money to buy guitars! ...And prices will probably have to drop   But then I'm a pessimistic old git !  3

    Pessimist, perhaps, but you may have a point.
