**Will take £475 or trade for the right S-Type guitar**

 

Right. Finally faced up to the fact that I'm not an SG kind of player. Yes, I think it's the coolest guitar ever but having spent a bit of time with a Strat I have had to come to terms with the truth that I'm a single-coil kinda guy - I like clean sounds, I play chords not lead and this thing is wasted on me so time to pass it on. I bought it in 1997 and since then I've replaced the pickups with a DiMarzio PAF Pro and a Seymour Duncan JB, I also got luthier of some repute Jeff Beer to fit coil taps and dress the frets and he did say it was a good example of an SG. I'm also including the leather strap with locks and the original tuners (it's got locking ones now).

 

It's been played and has a few knocks and scratches but the action is lovely and it sounds great - there's the usual Gibson line along the fretboard but the neck/body joint is fine as you can see in the pics and it's never been repaired.

I'd much rather someone picked it up in person but I've got a box to pack it up and it'll come in a gig bag if you want to arrange a collection at your own risk. Any questions give me a shout.

 

I'll miss this one but it's time it got the kind of playing it deserves.

Pop some P90s in there and the problem is solved. I did this with mine and I LOVE it!!!

Naah. I just don’t gel with the scale length, balance, neck radius. It’s just not me. I should have admitted it before spending hundreds on pickups and mods

That’s a great guitar, and would have been a good price if it were in standard condition, so with the mods/improvements made it’s a very good price. I find the Specials to be easier to play too.

It's got a lovely low action too!
