    Due to my switching back to playing 6-strings exclusively I am letting this amazing custom instrument go to an owner who can fully appreciate her.

    Steve Mercer was a custom-shop builder from the United Kingdom who drew heavily on some of the best guitar designs of the last two decades for the creation of this instrument. It is a combination of a Caparison Horus and a Blackmachine B7, which results in a guitar with a very throaty and robust tone, very light weight, and fantastic playability due the the crazy low action and comfortable Ibanez-like neck.

    The guitar itself is in very good condition, with just a few small marks (as pictured)

    The specs are:
    Body: 50 year old kiln dried (Sapele) Mahogany with very thick flame maple top
    Neck: 5pc Maple Wenge neck and Bubinga scarf-jointed headstock w. Wenge veneer
    Fingerboard: Ebony
    Scale: 25.5''
    Neck radius: 16''
    Frets: 24 - Jumbo
    Tuners: Sprezel Locking Tuners
    Bridge: Wilkinson hardtail with graphite saddles
    Controls: Recessed jack, 1 volume knob (made from Ebony)
    Pickups: Bare Knuckle Juggernauts in Black Battleworn finish
    Case: Original Hardshell Case (Ibanez)

    All in all this is a guitar that easily rivals my Mayones Duvell in terms of construction, playability and sound, and will make any lover of hand-crafted instruments extremely happy.

    Price: €1400,- OBO + shipping
    Location: The Netherlands
    Trades: Perhaps, proper 6 string instruments are considered
    Reputation: more than plenty on here, Reverb, and several gear groups
