TO GO: Maya brand JapCrap SG type guitar

Recommended Posts

I've had this hanging around my house for years, waiting to be fixed up into something I could play scuzzy slide guitar on in a side project. However, that band never really got off the ground and once I picked up the double bass, anything with six strings got firmly pushed into the background.

Anyway, it's an SG shape, probably form the 70s, clearly made from plywood (and a thin piece of plywood at that), it has a single pickup in the neck position (I think it's a single coil in a PAF style humbucker cover), and that's about it! The neck's pretty chunky and has a few nicks in it but the original crap JapCrap hardware has been replaced with slightly less crap JapCrap hardware that I filched off my guitarist's Colombus Les Paul copy while he wasn't looking.

It all works and makes suitably guitar like noises. As I said, I was going to use it for slide work in a scuzzy blues band, so if you have lo-fi indie leanings, this could be for you...

Let me know if you want pictures


Local pickup preferred, or I could deliver in the Bristol area for a suitable bribe.

Cheers

Dave

It's difficult to see in the last image, but the body is about half the thickness you'd expect and you can clearly see the layers of ply through the varnish.
Still has loads of retro cool though.

I'm making room for an incoming double bass, so this has to go.

If its easy to make it to Bristol I'd be interested, might end up on the Gryphon wall if I can't make something interesting of it.

I'm in Fishponds - I could practically throw it from my window to your place....

Gone to the house of bass, where hopefully the basses won't make fun nof little Maya just because she's different.
