SDL-1 Cracked Mirror

Sorry, this listing has ended.

Ended!

This is a super rare opportunity to own an almost unused prototype of a SDL-1 guitar. having minimal signs of use on the bodywork or the frets.

It is a one-off, custom made guitar, with an ebony fretboard mounted on a maple neck, a cracked mirror finish on a  mahogany body, custom made bridge with string-through design.

It is loaded with Manson MBK-2 bare knuckle pickups, originally custom designed to be installed into Muse guitarist’s Matt Bellamy’s guitars, who still uses these pickups and guitars. These pickups will also work with the Fenandes sustained pickups system too (although this system is not installed on this guitar).

It also has a built in MIDI touch pad. This can be used to control MIDI devices, and is especially amazing for using with the Digitech Whammy pedal, as an example. It can also control rack mounted equipment, including triggering synths or drum machines.

If that's not enough, it also has a built in ZVEX Fuzz Factory pedal that is wired to switches and knobs mounted on the front and set into the back of the guitar. At the flick of a switch, you can get some “weird and wonderful” sounds from this feature.

Sold with a new top quality Mansons padded gig bag, although I can swap this for a used hard case if the seller prefers. Please state your preference.

Reason for selling? - my tastes are more conventional than this guitar offers, so I am selling it to be used by someone who will utilise it to its max.

Open to sensible offers and would be a stunning guitar for any collector or enthusiast, and a definite statement guitar for anyone currently playing out live.

I will be able to ship within 4 days of purchase, with the exception of a holiday period 23 - 30 December.

Please note that the buyer will be responsible for meeting the cost of any import duties or taxes payable.
