- This guitar is well used as has travelled the world with me playing hundreds of shows whilst playing in British rock band Art Brut (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Brut_(band)), minor faults described below. it was also used on the recording of the band's seminal debut album, 'Bang, bang, rock & roll' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bang_Bang_Rock_%26_Roll) and several other associated records around that period including 4 UK top 50 singles.
Since then it has sat somewhat unplayed for the past few years and due to an overseas move it's time to sell this item that has so many memories to me and move on, if I play guitar much again in the future it will be something different.
Serial number is I95024 which means a manufacturing date of September of 1996
I love this guitar and it still plays very well, but it is well travelled and thus has a few cosmetic 'issues' that do not affect it's playability or sound at all (illustrated in photos as much as possible):
Original white lower scratch plate was broken and replaced with a black one, which creates quite a nice two tone effect.
Hard case has performed it’s role admirably is cracked along the bottom, the internal strap has slipped and it is currently covered in tour stickers.
Guitar generally needs a little cleaning and dusting
Surface damage in headstock
Surface damage at bottom of third fret
Surface damage on back of neck at 10th fret
Surface damage at base of neck
Minor surface damage around guitar body back edge
