Hi there,

I'm selling my 1991 Music Man Silhouette is excellent condition with OHSC.

A previous owner was Derek Thurlby the British Pedal Steel and guitar Player.

Very attractive example in sunburst finish and has a very pretty figured Birdseye 6 bolt maple neck and fingerboard.

The action is very low and choke free.

The guitar is fitted with a pearloid scratchplate with three Dimarzio stacked single coil sized humbucker pickups which have a really satisfying fat tone to them, and are extremely quiet.

The tone pot includes a push/pull switch which splits the coils of the the stacked humbuckers, and reduces output and thins the sound out to be more traditionally stratty.

Inside the original hardshell case there are a couple of bonus items - the as-supplied Music Man strap and brochure.

The guitar weighs 7.8lbs.

£1,650 excluding delivery costs and after all fees.

UK sale preferred for convenience - however, I have shipped many guitars overseas so I can definitely arrange that.

Interested in Part Exchange trade for a 1990s Luke 1 or earlier Luke 2 - main criteria would be a nicely figured neck.

Any questions, please give me a shout :)

Best regards,
Ben.

Selling my Albert Lee HH with Trem that I bought from Glory Days Music in 2015. It's in mint condition. Never played out. A closet beauty without a scratch. I'm a bass player first and foremost. What little time I spend playing electric guitar has been dedicated to my Axis Sport. It's regretful to say the least. But I would rather this go to someone that will play it.

There is one important note that needs to be made:
Shortly after receiving the guitar, I took it to John Browns Guitar Factory to have the rosewood neck (not the fretboard) refinished in the same polyurethane finish as the headstock and body. The result was exceptional. If you like the feel and look of a smooth poly neck, then this might be the right one for you.

Comes with the original MM wood and tolex case and all the candy you see in the photos. I'm even throwing in a 20" cord. I can take more pictures to anyone needing to see more. Asking $2,080 shipped to anywhere in the USA.

2012 Limited Edition PDN (Private Dealer Network) Steve Morse Y2D. Honeyburst color over quilted/birdseye maple cap, pau ferro board, beautiful roasted birdseye maple neck, stainless steel frets, mahogany body, OHSC.
Original TonePros locking bridge has been replaced with another TonePros locking bridge with roller saddles, and original black dome knobs replaced with Q-Parts black UFO knobs with acrylic tortoise shell inlay. Chrome Dunlop Dual design strap buttons added.

Will include or swap out bridge or knobs back to original if you prefer. $2700 shipped in the U.S.

This is an awesome guitar, but my hands are on the smaller side and I prefer shorter scale necks these days over the 25.5" scale.

(UK) EBMM JP7 Fully Loaded (Black Sugar, Roasted Maple Neck), w/ Bareknuckle Juggernauts - £2700

Putting out tentative feelers for a sale of this - my JP7 in the limited edition Black Sugar finish with a BFR roasted maple neck, which has been modified with Bareknuckle Juggernaut pickups and a coil split on the tone knob - I still have the original pickups and could include them in the sale. I bought this from a fellow forum member here back in 2013, and it has never been gigged or used for anything other than playing/recording at home. It's not getting much use currently, so I'm interested to see if it appeals to anybody.

A UK sale would definitely be preferable for ease.

By numerous requests over the years I'm going to list these guys, my personal pair of original Dargie Delight guitars! Being sold strictly as a pair $20k, cash, certified bank check drawn on a major US bank, or major CC accepted through my website. Ships fully insured via UPS 2-day in the 48 states. International buyers will pay actual shipping costs and any necessary import duty/taxes. While I did play both of these for some time, I haven't played them in years and it's time to start making some room.

Any questions please email me!

Stealing my post format from SSO where these are cross-posted.

Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar: 2013 JP12 BFR 7-string & 2013 JP6 in Mystic Dream (Loaded w/piezo and SS frets). JP12 is in excellent (9/10) condition. Mystic Dream I'd give a good rating (7/10).

Selling because I don't play these enough. I want to try more guitars and I can't let myself exceed 10 total.

Being completely honest, I'd keep the JP6 if it was in better condition. It's absolutely covered in tiny micro scratches that drive me absolutely nuts. I tend to keep my instruments as minty fresh as possible but I just get annoyed every time I see the dents/marks/smudges etc. that I can't get over. What's worse is Music Man uses amazing paint so these are purely due to (previous) owner neglect. I'd love another JP7 in this finish but this particular one just lets me down. It plays well and stays in tune etc. no issues. Tuned to E standard with 10s (D'Addarios).

The JP12 is very classy and is in great shape. Tuned one step down with 11 to 64. But again, I just want to try more stuff. There are some minor marks near the nut/first fret side marker and the case has a borked handle/latch but I bought brand new replacement parts from G&G and these can be swapped on the case if desired. I don't have a riveting tool so I never bothered.

Modifications (if any): None. Although the JP6 had some abomination of a trem stopper installed by the previous owner. They drilled a hole inside the trem cavity and put in a dumb metal block and rubber pad to keep the trem locked in place. Sacrilege, especially since the bridges on these are pretty much flawless mechanically. I ripped it out immediately, but the rubber pad is still stuck to the brass(?) block and the hole is still there, taunting me/you.
Accessories (hardshell case etc): JP12 will have a cleaning cloth and the case keys. JP6 just has case keys, I believe. I'll throw in some picks I never use for the hell of it. Tell me your favourite car/car brand and I'll see if I have a Hot Wheels that can join the guitar.
Location (City,State or City,Country): Reno, Nevada, United States.
International OK?: I'd ship to Canada, but Europe/Australia probably wouldn't be worth the pain (aka customs).
Contact Info (No Phone #s): PM me on here. I can provide my email too if necessary.
References (eBay or other forum userid): I’ve been a member here forever and I have 100% on Reverb where I only dabble in guitars over $1,500 typically. My “store” is N+1 Guitars.

I ship exceptionally well. I already have the boxes and packing material ready to go.

Price (include currency and if firm/obo): I'd like to net $2,150 USD for the 12, and $2,000 USD for the JP6. Open to trades for the right JP models. I’m very picky though, so heads up!

Selling my Axis Sport HH hard tail Burnt Apple matching headstock including OHSC.
I have never seen another one in this config, thus I'd say, that this is quite a rare one.

It's from 2001 and is in good shape. It has been played, but the frets are still intact, and have lots of playing hours left.

It has some minor neck stress crack. There's a chip off of the finish corner in that area (I have honestly no idea when and how that happened). There's also some scratches at the lower body edge.

Everything is original, except the nut. It's new from 2023 and made of bone (the original one strangely just cracked one day, at the end of the low E string, while changing strings).

Will preferably ship to Germany, and probably to most European countries. I think it doesn't make sense to ship overseas, although I have done that once, but I'd like to avoid the hazzle.

I'd start at 1800€, but I am totally open for offers. I'm happy to send more pics, of course.

Hey All. Looking to sell my Luke II. It’s a beautiful guitar that has served me well but the neck is just too thin for me now. I’ll do this one shipped to a forum member for $1500. It’s in very good condition. Just a couple little dings that I pictured with flash to make them look as bad as possible. In real life from a foot or two away the guitar looks great. Frets are in great shape. The case is long gone but I will ship it in a very nice mono sleeve bag with the trem arm!
