A couple of small marks on the back of the body but nothing major at all. No chips in the wood, just a few light scratches that are always present on a black finish. Neck: 9/10 Great neck, next to no use on the frets! Lovely maple and highly polished frets.
This guitar will go for years. Hardware: 8.5/10 original tuners have been replaced with Sperzel locking machine heads otherwise the bridge pins and saddle are gret condition Electrics: 9/10 Sockets, pots and switches etc are wear and tear items.
In our opinion the electrics on this guitar are in perfect working order in normal play but there's no guarantee how long they will stay in this condition, but years and years would be a good guess!! Playability: This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK's most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs. That doesn't mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all! This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it's style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing. Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to "make an offer".If they don't then sure as hell we don't! About Guitar Mania - MULTI award winning shop We first opened our doors in 1994.
