2014 / 2015 Drake Custom Guitar
Yes, master luthier and bass builder extraordinaire, Andrew Drake has built a few very nice, custom guitars. This one is built in a traditional shape you will recognize. The guitar plays exceptionally well and is light weight at 6.6 pounds. The build was started in November of 2014 and finished in early 2015.
Here are the details:
Body wood is butternut
Forearm and belly cuts
Top, headstock facing, and cavity cover are Black Walnut
Neck and fretboard are quarter sawn Maple
22 stainless steel frets
EMG SA pickups with the David Gilmour SPC module to really fatten tone
Pickups are self grounded and noiseless
String through the body design
Sperzel locking tuners
Dunlop strap locks
Finish is a very durable matte, that will withstand wear and not show finger smudges.
We originally equipped this guitar with Fender fat '50s pickups. These are shown in photos. I wanted a fatter tone and Andrew made the change to the EMGs. There is no significant change in the appearance of the guitar.
Sweetening this deal up a bit by upgrading to replace the SKB molded case with a near new condition tweed G&G style rectangular hard case made for Fender.
I am scaling back my instrument collection, and as I am focusing primarily on bass, this one needs to go.
This guitar has very little playing time and is in as new condition.
My cash price is $1,300.00 shipped, insured CONUS. I only accept PayPal and will only ship to the PayPal verified address. I will ship within 24 hours of good funds clearing PayPal.
I will work with International buyers, but shipping, any import duty, and taxes are the buyer's expense.
Please respond to the email on this forum to ask questions, request more photos (I have several), or to buy the guitar. I can usually respond within a couple of hours after being contacted, if not sooner.
For sale only, no trades, please.
