Hi guys

I recently got an SG craze and bought 2 Navi SGs both are amazing but I have decided to sell the better of the two (the other is in a worse condition but that suits me better for gigging/touring). If this dosnt sell I will put a vibrola on it and pretend to be George Harrison.
This is a beautifully made navigator N-SG guitar made in 2007. No cracks anywhere but a few scratches on the finish and some buckle rash on the back. One tone knob missing (have since replaced it) and the back pickup has been replaced with a SD JB pickup. Sounds awesome and plays with low action- will swap for another Navigator guitar looking for a Navigator 335 or Strat (but any other considered).

cash - £1250 (ONO)




Consider trading this for my Orville 335 upgraded with Emerson wiring and Klein picups. Let me know. I have it posted a few pages back.

Looking for a black 335, something like a Seventy Seven Exrubato or Edwards E-SA-160, but I am open to suggestions. Prefer a dot rather than block fretboard. I'm hoping to gig with it therefore don't mind a few dents and scratches. Please message me. Thanks

For sale is my Tokai ES-130 SR guitar. Upgrades include locking Kluson style tuners, Creamtone "Bonnamassa" bridge and Stew-Mac Parson Street PAF humbuckers (Alnico II).

When I got this guitar, I was going to swap the pickups out since they are "budget" PAFs, but they have a terrific, clear sound with the excellent low-end thump and soft compression of a great es-335. They really responded well once I set them up.

Now to the neck...it's definitely on the bigger side. I measured this out at .8665" depth at the 1st fret, 1.047" at the 12th. The neck is 42.35mm wide at the 1st, and 51.98mm at the 12th. It feels close to the Gibson 50's rounded neck shape. It has a strong taper up to the 12th fret but is nice and round with good shoulder the entire length. Note that it is a 1 5/8th nut width, but truthfully you can't feel it. The neck is nice and straight, and I've rounded the binding to give it a nice played-in feel. I've also knocked down the finish with 0000 steel wool on the back of the neck to help in that aspect as well. It can still be polished up if desired (and will do so with play as well).

The guitar weighs 7 pounds, 10.9 ozs. It will ship with standard case with red velvet interior and original hangtag.

Guitar is very clean with basic light surface scratches from use. No large dents or dings except a little bit on right of front headstock as shown in pics. If you have any questions at all please let me know and thanks for looking!

$1300 PayPal and shipped to US48

Trades: Cool reverb pedals (Dark World, Meteore, Oceans 11). I really need to cash out, so no guitar/amp trades at this time.

Selling a set of K&T "Friction" pickups, $600 shipped and PP'd. Aged covers, cream bobbins. They sound excellent, with punchy low-mids. Would complement a brighter guitar very well.

Very nice Bacchus vintage series strat from late 90'ies up for grabs. It's a Bacchus bst-64v and has a nice chunky c-shape neck and the sought after yuta pickups. Hand built in Japan - no cnc machines. Thin laquer. Plays and sounds great as you would expect. Quite rare colour, so if you have been looking for one of these, this is your chance. Has seen some action as has some scratches and bruises plus tarnished hardware. No playability or tuning issues. Plenty of fret life and frets are nice and even. One of the best and rarest Bacchus strats I've ever had the pleasure to own. Comes with a non original gigbag
850 euro + shipping (ships from Copenhagen)

Really, REALLY nice Edwards tele up for sale. Basically as new and in mint condition. Made around 2018. Plays and sounds really great. The neck is to die for - chunky c and one of the best looking fretboards I've ever seen. I don't know the exact model number - it might have been a limited edition. Quite heavy I would guess around 4 kg, but I think it's one of the reasons it sounds so damn good. Almost as good as Momose, Van Zandt etc. Obviuosly not with the same specs, but it just plays so good and the pickups are actually very nice. Very inspiring to play. Comes with original esp gigbag.

650 euro + shipping (ships from Copenhagen)

***SOLD***

I have a 1979 Greco EG500 that needs a new home, $500 shipped to CONUS. This one has a 2 piece book matched top. No pickup covers, pickups are Screamin and were taken from a Greco Mint collection EG59/60. NO CASE. My pics are too large at the moment but PM me and I can get you some resized ones. Here is one of the neck cavity (usually the most important one)

Price drops:

Tokai TE80 $1050
Vanzandt Tele $1125 shipped
Vanzandt Strat $1725 shipped

I am moving cross-country so I need to lighten the load. I keep whatever does not sell by moving time.

Prices are shipped and PP'd (continental US).

Click on the guitar name for more photos.

Please feel free to ask me any questions. I know Vanzandt and Crews are relatively obscure, so I will be more than happy to provide info, links to useful info, etc.

1991 Tokai ES-180SOLD
[IMG]

This was the top of the line model in 1991. Not to be confused with the current production ES-180 (same model number due to inflation). Mahogany neck with a striped (most likely Macassar) ebony fretboard. Tokai PAF-Vintage MK1 pickups. What appears to be abalone body binding. Gold hardware.

Neck is in good condition with room for adjustment either way. Fret life is about 60-70%. Has a finish crack on the top (pictured in the album).


1980 Tokai TE-80 Breezy Sound $1200
[IMG]

A beautifully aged 1980 Tokai TE-80. All original minus the bridge pickup. One piece (most likely sen) ash body. The neck has some subtle figuring to it. Guitar has been played and shows a good amount of wear. Frets look to be in good shape with 70-80% fret life left. Truss rod can move either way. Bridge pickup is a DiMarzio DP 389 tele humbucker.


Vanzandt STV-R3 $1800
[IMG]

A custom order Vanzandt. Lake Placid Blue is a custom order only color and it looks gorgeous in person. Brazilian rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, one piece ash body, Vanzandt pickups. Very thin nitro finish, which is what Vanzandt is famous for.


Vanzandt TLV-R2 $1175
[IMG]

Vanzandt is well known in Japan for their high end Fender replicas and very thin finishes. This one is a 60's style tele. Vanzandt pickups, Madagascar rosewood, alder body, clay dots. Not sure when it was made. As you can see from the photos, the fact that the finish is paper thin has been made very apparent. Nicks. dings, and scrapes can be found all over the body. The finish has some minor weather checking as well. The neck is in great condition.


2009 Crews Maniac Sound '62 Strat replica $2100
[IMG]

Crews's Vintage Line is a series of high-end guitars representing their take on iconic vintage guitars. They have replicated the blackguard Tele, 1954-1964 Strats, the 1961 SG, and the 1959 Les Paul.

This one is a '62 strat replica from the Vintage Line. Specs include:

-'62 style slab Brazilian rosewood fretboard

-Figured hard maple neck

-Carefully selected one-piece alder body

-K&T "Austin Legend" pickups (modeled after SRV's sound)

-Candy Apple Red nitro finish

-Steel block

-Clay dots

-3-ply pickguard that is turning mint green

The K&T pickups are highly regarded in Japan (and also ridiculously expensive). They often come stock on Crews's top of the line guitars since Crews and K&T often collaborate. From what I understand, the coils consist of two wires, a NOS wire and a modern wire, in order to achieve an SRV inspired sound.
