About This Listing

USA made


Hornet Custom Floyd

OK first off we will accept a reasonable offer for this

 But this is a very well playing US made high quality guitar

this guitar was close to a fire that broke out and there is 

damage to the finish and body. Top has a few heat spots and a few nicks here and there

 It was sanded down in the back towards the bottom , pics show that.

All of the parts have been replaced tuners, knobs, electronics and all is in proper 

working order. Most of the damage was done to the back as you can see and that's fine

for players who just want a killer guitar that originally was selling for $3999

 for a fraction of that.

 The body is solid mahogany with a spalted maple top and a mahogany neck with a maple core

and an ebony fingerboard with abalone Iron cross inlays.

The edge of the fingerboard near the treble side, the clear coat has flaked off near the 15-18th frets

The back of the guitar is where the heat got to it so its half there and it gradually goes from glossy to a smooth oiled mahogany and sanded to 1200 grit. 

The edges of the body near the jack are scorched, where the heat probably hit first however

it is smoothed over and its at the bottom, so most wont care.

This is total disclosure on this guitar so please don't buy it and then 

say its not what I thought it was because I'm listing everything here and the pics show the damage.

However the guitar plays and sounds incredible. The original Floyd is smooth and works fine and the Duncan pickups sound even and biting.  SH-6 N and SH6 B were put in, in place of the EMG's that were in there, they weren't working so we swapped everything out to a passive setup. 

The duncans were pickups we had around the shop. The front one is fairly new the bridge pickup is not.

But, this is a players guitar not a museum piece.

If you don't care about the issues in the finish and just want  a great playing rock guitar

 this is the one for you.

Again, this has fire damage but not structural just heat and all parts that had issues were replaced

including the electronics.

no case but it will be packed well

Bidding starts at $100, This guitar when I bought it listed for $4699

 reserve price is very decent for this guitar based on the history

Again Guitar is what it is and it is final sale 


 This guitar is smokin' 

 The back plates were unusable but I am lasering out new ones to be put on before selling.
