1978 Electra X810 Guitar 'Sold'

     Exc.(+) Condition. The top, back and sides are all very clean with just slight scratches from playing. The neck and frets are in great condition as well. There is one hole drilled in the top of the body from where the pickguard was installed. The original pickguard comes in the case.
     Flamed Maple top, back and sides with antique brown sunburst. Top, back, fretboard and peghead are all multiple bound with tortoise-shell. The inside of the f-holes are also bound with tortoise-shell. Mahogany neck with radiused Rosewood fingerboard and elaborate "Tree of Life" inlay in Pearl across the fretboard. Tune-o-matic bridge, 2 "magnaflux" humbucking pickups and 5-way selector.
     The most interesting part about this guitar is the two "MPC Effect Modules" installed in the guitar. There is a cavity in the back where there are two spots for different Electra effects that are easily removed and replaced. There are twelve different modules that can be put in the guitar, this particular Electra has the "phase shifter" and "power overdrive" modules. These modules are controlled and bypassed by the two levers on the body and the volume of the effects is controlled by the knobs. This is an interesting idea, but there are far better ways to add effects to a guitar line nowadays. The modules are more of a cool and innovative thing as opposed to a really great sounding electronics system. The good thing is that Electra didn't rely on building guitars with effects in them as their selling point. The guitar sounds great alone, much better than with the effects activated. The sound is really thick, with many different tonal variations from the 5 way selector. The effects are fun, and definitely worth playing around with but this guitar does not need any help to sound great.
     For more information on the effects modules visit: http://www.rivercityamps.com/electra/modules.php
     * Price has been significantly reduced for quicker sale, as owner is producing a solo CD and also getting married... (not kidding).

2002 Gibson ES-135 EB Guitar 'Sold'

     Exc(-) condition. Ebony black finish. As an interesting point, this guitar comes with papers officially from Gibson variously describing this guitar as an "ES-345" and an "ES-35", even though it absolutely is a stock ES-135. And, all these same papers (label, warranty card, inspection papers, etc), all have the correct serial number that matches the back of peghead and label, etc.
      No fret wear at all. This instrument is really in nice condition, but it does have one repair on back that is hard to spot. There was a slight clean crack in the outer ply of the back. Our local luthier, George Weisel, did a really great job of repairing it and blending the finish so that there is no sign of the repair at all, except a slight deflection of light when looking directly at it - we'll make sure to make one or two photos that show you what we mean. Many stores would omit this information about the repair, because it was done so well that it truly is a 'non-issue'.
     24 3/4" scale length. Semi-hollowbody, with block of wood running thru body. Two 'P-100' pickups (stacked double-coil humbucking). Trapeze tailpiece and tune-a-matic bridge. Kluson-style "Gibson DeLuxe" tuners with tulip buttons.
     This is a very nice example of a semi-hollowbody guitar. You can play this guitar acoustically and get great sound. It is very resonant. The set-up is great, with nice low action and everything works great.
