Up for sale is an incredilby awesome and rare guitar, a Bartlett '58 Explorer. Tom had access to an original '58 which he traced to create this masterpiece. Beautiful one-piece Korina body and neck with a super dark Brazilian board. The guitar weighs about 8.5lbs and is possibly the most resonant instrument I've owned. Nice full neck profile. Killer Ox4 pickups.

$10.5k net to me + shipping.

Bump! Lots of interest, but no takers yet.

I have a slew of photos that Tom sent of the guitar after it was completed that I can forward to interested potential buyers. The guitar also comes with a DVD featuring photos of the build process.
All wood is old growth and board is beautiful dark Brazilian.

Beautiful explorer. Have you sold it now? Whilst I don't have the cash at the moment I do have a slew of boutique guitars if you would be interested in a trade of some description. Kind regards Nick 8059105346
