What's Hot

Superb example of an hss strat with well balanced vintage voiced pickups that are something of a revelation. 130 year old wood made from wine barrels as the family used to make chianti in Tuscany. 
The artist endorsements they have are huge, but the most well known are Richard Fortus and Richie Sambora, not because they have been pictured with a guitar they don’t use, but because they actually use and gig with their guitars. 
Really hard to price. They’re £4K new now, I’ve put it on evilbay at £2250, but if you’re interested and can make a sensible offer, let’s talk. 
This will be withdrawn if I sell my Prs studio as I’d rather keep it.

    Very tentative bump. I’m quite happy to hang onto this, but if someone buys it, there is something I’d like that’s been listed. Make me a sensible offer and we’ll talk.

    Are the KK Downing studs hammered in? I love all the brass.

    Every now and then, I sell something at a daft price because I’ve seen something and gas gets the better of me.
    This is available this weekend only at a reduced price No trades, no offers obviously! 
    No sale this weekend and I keep it

    Well, that's my cue to avoid the forum this weekend! 

    Crazy price for an amazing looking guitar!

    But what have you seen, what if the owner of said desired object were willing to trade, what if Mavis next door just happens to have one up her sleeve? Don’t toy with us like this, giving half truths that leave the rest to guess work! ;)

    But seriously, what are you after to let something this cool go?

    Obviously a prs and I did offer the paoletti as a trade but he doesn’t do single coils. 
    If the paoletti doesn’t go this weekend, it’ll save me a bit as the missus has told me I won’t last January without another incoming guitar. She knows me well
