    All guitars in good condition and have been living in their cases in my closet for the last few months. I just don't play anymore. :(




    Caparison TAT - Frozen Sky

    Modifications (if any):pickups (see below)
    Accessories (hardshell case etc): Hard case

    Awesome and rare TAT I Frozen Sky Caparison model. Stunning guitar, plays fantastic. Arch top, angled neck pocket, comfortable neck contour, beautiful Caparison signature clock inlays, a mix of Caparison and Seymour Duncan pickups and a Schaller built Floyd Rose bridge. Add to that the utterly unique frozen sky finish and it's absolutely killer.

    Neck: Maple
    Fretboard: Ebony
    Scale: 25.4"
    Bridge: Schaller Floyd Rose
    Controls: 1x Vol, 1x Tone, 5-way switch
    Bridge pickup: Caparison PH-R
    Middle pickup: Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound
    Neck pickup: Seymour Duncan Hot Rails
    Finish: Frozen Sky

    Price: $2500AU

    Caparison Dellinger - Green/Black Flame

    Modifications (if any):... quite a few (read below!)
    Accessories (hardshell case etc):Hard case

    One of the best super strats in existence... in my opinion anyway! This one has been heavily customised. This one started out as two black dellingers, one with a tremolo and fancy inlays, and one with a fixed bridge and no inlays. The owner swapped the necks so he could have the fixed bridge with the fancy inlays and sold the the trem version with no inlays. I picked it up somewhere along the way and had some more changes made (work done by Cam Rees from Custom Guitar Works, and he did an awesome job):

    * Install a locking nut so the trem can be used properly
    * Re-route the body to swap the pickup layout from HSS to HH
    * Add a flame maple veneer to the body and headstock
    * Finish in black/green split
    * Install bareknuckle pickups
    * Re-string, setup, all that fun stuff

    Specs

    Body: Mahogany
    Neck: Maple
    Fretboard: Ebony
    Scale: 25.4"
    Bridge: Schaller Floyd Rose
    Controls: 1x Vol, 1x Tone, 3-way switch
    Bridge pickup: Nailbomb (C)
    Neck pickup: Cold Sweat (A)
    Finish: Black/Green

    Price: $2500AU

    ET Tomahawk FX-8 (Custom shop)

    Modifications (if any):None
    Accessories (hardshell case etc):Hard case

    Long time custom 8 string build from ET Guitars - Ernie Taylor in NSW. Inspired by the Meshuggah Ibanez 8 string model, but with some significant changes to woods/dimensions/etc. Basically a brand new custom shop guitar. For the record, I have owned and played some nice Ibanez prestige models and this is way better than any of them (imo of course).

    Body: Ash
    Neck: 5pc Wenge/Bubinga
    Fretboard: Ebony
    Scale: 27"
    Bridge: Edge III-FX
    Controls: 1x Vol, 1x Tone, 3-way switch
    Bridge pickup: Cold Sweat (C)
    Neck pickup: Holy Diver (A)
    Finish: Stained black

    Tomahawk shape which is similar to an RG basically, with a different headstock. Also the body depth has been reduced by about 3mm to make the guitar weigh a bit less. Also comes with a basic hard case.

    Price: $2500AU

    Trades?!

    I don't play much anymore, and I'm saving for a car, so mostly looking to sell. I would consider some trades though, but I am pretty picky. I weirdly want a Schecter Synster Gates Custom, or would like a fanned fret/multiscale of some sort - preferably 7 string.

    Cheers, Pete.

    And again, a semi-necro bump > . <

    The TAT was sold a few weeks ago, maybe more. But the Delli and ET are both still available.

    Long time coming bump. TAT long gone, Delli and ET still for sale.

    Potential interest in something like a LTD 6 or 7.

    Hoping this doesn't count as a necro, but the Dellinger and ET 8 are both still available.

    Looking for a sale (open to offers), or a cool trade like a Mayones or something would be awesome!
