About This Listing

In 2009, Edwards released a special and very limited run of single cut guitars dubbed "Pure Material". Only 31 were made.

This is not your run of the mill Edwards guitar. That's no knock on regular production Edwards, they are great guitars in their own right. But the Pure Material run was a one-time only set of guitars with specs in line with ESP's Navigator line.

These guitars start with a lightweight one-piece mahogany body topped with a solid flame maple top (no veneer) and finished with lacquer. The pickups are a set of Duncans, an Alnico Pro II neck paired with a Custom 5 bridge. The electronics are high quality CTS pots and a pair of PIO caps.

This particular Pure Material has a vintage looking subtle flame top finished with what I would describe as a honey burst color. The top of the guitar is in very good shape. However, there is some playwear on the rear, mainly just a few dings on the headstock and around the back edge of the body and a few lines of normal lacquer checking. There is also some light surface scratches on the rear. There is also some sort of larger ding on the back of the neck that was filled by a previous owner with some sort of filler. I've never paid much attention to it as I don't feel it when playing. See the pictures.

There is a check/crack in the lacquer finish on the back of the neck/headstock area. This is a finish crack only, the neck is solid and has never been repaired.

The guitar plays very well up and down the neck with no buzzing. The frets are in good shape with only minimal wear, nothing needing a leveling or crown, though.

The guitar weighs only 8.3 pounds. I would describe the neck as a nice medium C shape. The neck measurements are:

Width - 1 3/4" at the nut, 2 1/16" at the 12th fret
Thickness - 7/8" at the nut, 1" at the 12th fret

Included is the original Navigator branded hard case and original warranty card.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to own a rare and special piece of Japanese craftsmanship.

This guitar is sold as is with no returns. Please ask any questions before purchasing, I will answer them fully and promptly.
