#11 of Approx 100 Made All offers considered Green Sparkle!

Up for sale we have a Z Vex Drip guitar in Black Sparkle!. If you are looking at this well you know how rare it is. I really don't even want to sell it. However, I have too much stuff and starting to feel bogged down by a few bills. These guitars were made in 2000 and a limited run of about 70 to 100. Some say "72" other site say about 100 were made. This is number 10 and it’s beyond rare. This price may seem insane but a guitar like this will only go up in value. Besides some of their pedals go for like 1000 bucks! No janky intonation here folks! This is a very well made guitar.

Overall the guitar is in very good condition, and there are a handful of random small superficial dings on the entire guitar. Please notice there is some blems on the pick guard. I guess that the decal separation on the inside. Its collector grade! Very loud guitar that sounds amazing through any decent amplifier.As with any guitar that’s been sitting in storage it going to need new strings and set up. Please consider this when bidding on my items.

This guitar is shaped like a classic 60's unit... you know the one.  Under the pickguard is a hidden probe antenna, which controls an onboard wah like the one in the wah probe floor model.   Unlike the floor model, there is no boost, just a wah.

The guitar is U.S.A. made, with Holy Grail (tm) pickups by Lace Sensor (noise canceling single-coils with tone like a vintage strat), an on-off push-push button in the volume control for the onboard wah probe, and 25.5" scale-length, maple neck with rosewood fingerboard, a round backpad that snaps off for easy battery compartment access, and custom candy apple colors with glitter pickguards standard on many units.  The colors shown in the pictures are a few examples of about 10 different color combinations made in the first batch of 30 units.  I know, I should have made them all black, but I just can't leave well-enough alone.

the easiest wah unit technique, is the funk 70's sound (wooka wooka) you get when you swing your hand past it as you strum the strings, but if you park your pinky carefully on one spot on the pickguard and rock your hand as you play, lots of interesting wah modulations are possible.  The wah action takes place primarily in the lower part of the pickguard.  I guess the only way to see, hear, and feel what it is really like is to experience one in person.

I am extremely proud of the tone of the guitar.  It chimes like a piano, with grand lows and super round-wound highs on the rhythm pickup and a ferocious spank on the lead pickup.  The middle position is exceptional... the combination of the two Holy Grails in those distances from the bridge is truly unusual and memorable.  My prototype unit had some other pickups in it at first (I will not say what brand) and I was so completely stunned by the Holy Grails when I replaced them that I had to call the Lace people and thank them immediately.  The pickups are nearly as noise-free as a humbucker but the tone is buttery, bell-like single-coil vintage-sounding heaven.  Yeah, yeah, I sound like I am full of it, but you should hear the pickups just as proof that a modern invention can completely recapture the tones of yesterday with a drastic improvement in noise and buzz.

Battery life is long... I was able to leave mine plugged in (battery is connected by plugging in the 1/4" cord) for three days straight with no appreciable loss in sensitivity or tone.” ==Zachary Vex
