    I'm letting go of my Blue Ergo 6 String for cheap! And I need to unlaod it fast! :D (it has some problems as described below).
    The neck on it is really tempermental and it has a hard time staying in tune because of it. Also, during shipping the end of the truss rod broke through the neck. I don't know how the hell they managed to do that. They must have set something pretty heavy on it. I got it glued back in but you can't tighten the truss rod to much. That should be fixed more properly. I was going to have a local luthier/repair guy see what he could do with it but I never got around to it. It's still kind of playable though.
    It's got a piezo bridge and it's set up to go either mono or stereo with every other string going left or right in stereo. It creates a cool sound. You have to use an external pre amp for the piezos though. They don't have a built in one. The battery in it powers the LED fret markers(which were added later).
    It's also got Sperzel(sp) Locking tuners and Kent Armstrong pickups.
    It was one of Jesse's(Ergo Instruments) first so it was basically an experiment. It's not the prettiest guitar in person but it does have some cool things about it.
    $125 + Shipping

    Oh yeah, the Ergo is autographed by Doyle Dykes(a jazzy/country shredder dude)

    I'd prefer to only take Paypal for these. And I'd like to only ship to the continental US. The only reason for that being that I doubt it would be worth for the buyer to ship overseas. But if you're willing to pay the extra shipping costs, I'll ship overseas if needed. ;)
    Please pm or email if you have any questions.

    What is the fretboard made of ?(it looks a bit like pearloid or something)

    Just out of interest,doesn't the fanning of the frets and the compensated angle of the bridge just invite problems ?

    I actually like the look of it more than the Ergo 8+9 strings. I think it's mainly the width of the necks on the 8's and 9's that i find visually alarming (and the fact that i could never play one,lol).

    What wood is the body and neck made from?

    The fretboard is made of acitate(sp?). Basically fake mother of pearl. It's plastic.
    What kind of problems are you thinking of?
    I think the fanned frets actually make it more comfortable to play.

    The G-Flex is gone and I edited the initial post accordingly.
    I also lowered the price on the Blue Ergo to $150 + shipping.
    Also, if anyone is interested, I might be unlaoding my pink and purple Ibanez XV500 for about $150 + shipping.

    Holy crap. The ergo is 150$+ shipping?
    Donnie, if you can wait a few weeks, i'll get that instead of one of those rondo guitars (Still gonna get the bass though,hehe).
