    PLEASE Don't offer trades, please. I'm not looking for gear from private sellers.

    Location (City,State or City,Country):
    Randolph, NJ
    International OK?: email me for a quote
    Contact Info (No Phone #s): jzuretti7 [@] gmail
    References (eBay or other forum userid): here, Reverb (The Music Den/Electrical Impulses), eBay (GnarlesBronson), endless references
    Specs & Description:
    • Made with private stock Warmoth woods:
    Peruvian Walnut top & back
    chambered Purpleheart center
    all Rosewood (talk about legal) neck (like a 7 string 50s Gibson) & fretboard,
    deep creme binding on the body.

    • 26.188 scale, kind of custom tailored to my reach, just under baritone.

    • Bare Knuckle Juggernaut bridge pickup; you'll wonder what the switch does: lowers the impedance, kind of rolling back on the volume knob.

    • Titanium Truss Rod installed 2016 with new truss channel routing.

    • Refinished headstock to remove the original logo, using matching woods with a thing ply of maple sandwiched between the rosewood.

    • Vintage Ampeg Amp knobs for volume/tone (hard to find, got these at a place I used to work where they used these for high-end custom electro-mechanical pianos).

    • Hipshot open gear tuners that stay in tune very well, and a Hipshot bridge, super easy to intonate. The bridge was installed on at a slight angle to work with the intonation of the guitar, recommended by the fine folks at Hipshot. I have the original chrome hardware that I will include with the guitar if you want to switch back to the original bridge & tuners.

    • The pickguard is made out of Peruvian Walnut, which has a ply of Aluminum underneath. Underneath the pickguard is a completely blank palette; you can either rout a neck pickup very easily (since it's chambered) or you can take the pickguard off. But be warned, it's pretty beat up under there.

    • Rosewood pickup ring.

    • Gator hardshell case included.

    I can assure you, the upgrades, between the truss rod changing out (fretboard was taken off and then put back on - not an average-repair guy thing to do, done by luthiers primarily), Bare Knuckle Juggernaut, Hipshot Hardware (optional; I can take off this hardware and put the original chrome hardware back on and reduce the price by $35) --- this is all well over $600 worth of upgrades, I have paperwork listing the value of each alteration.


    Accessories (hardshell case etc):
    Gator HSC
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo): $1425 shipped, you pay your fees - this isn't me being firm, this is me being steel. It's above a great price for what you're getting.

    I'm at $1348 shipped right now; I forgot to mention that if it matters, I used this guitar on the entire album's heavy guitars I did at Audiohammer with Eyal Levi. It won the tone-war over a handful of very expensive guitars.

    It sounds like this (even though I used a Mayones in the video):

    It looks like it weighs a ton... does it?

    Light as a feather. It's chambered. Must weigh 6-7lbs

    SOLD! Glad to keep it in the homeboy family. Mr Layne Meylain of Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza grabbed this from me. He's wanted it for years. I'll miss it :( ;)
