Calling all guitar enthusiasts!

I'm reluctantly parting ways with this beauty due to unforeseen financial woes. It's a project guitar with potential, but I need to make some tough choices.

About the guitar:

  • Model: Classic collectors USA Signature edition Yngwie Malmsteen.
  • Condition: Used with some cosmetic flaws (detailed below)
  • Playability: Excellent, just needs a good setup, nothing you'd have to rely on a tech for, frets-bars are good.
  • Pickups: Di-marzio HS-3, slightly hotter pups than the newer editions but they're by design lower output, according to Dimarzio, it gives you better control of the strings further up the neck.
  • Case: Original hard case included, They go for approx £250-£350 on eBay, see pics, it's showing its age but still very functional, gorgeous

Flaws:

  • Scratches: scratches pictured. Replacement scratch-plate available for £5 on eBay, will need some proper buffing out and varnishing but totally salvageable, I would have done it myself this year if i didn't need to let go of it.
  • Slight mark on fretboard: Doesn't affect playability, might be wood grain. Mentioned for transparency.
  • Strings: Loosened and unplayed for a couple of years. A full service is recommended.

Why consider this guitar:

  • Great value for the price, especially with the included case.
  • Excellent potential for someone looking for a project guitar.
  • Plays fantastically, just needs some TLC.
  • The guitar plays well but for me is one to sit in the box and accumulate value, i however need to cash in early. Was purchased in the UK from a old boy whose wife i think had objected his guitar collection was worth more than the house, the damage on the guitar came from her. Selling it for what i paid for it and it includes the original case. Original owner's wife might have had a valid point about the value!

Price:

£3499, open to offers.

Bonus: Original trem arm and strap included, inside the case.


Don't miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of musical history!

Last notes.

Bought this for a minor project to buff out the scratches pictured, My finances are in the bin so i need to make some hard choices which means the guitars are going up for sale.

The strings have been loosened and it's been in the case for a couple of years in a climate controlled room, it will need a full service and the scratches themselves will need multiple proper polish and buffs to get out. There is a slight mark on the fretboard also which i think is the wood itself but I'll mention it for honesty sake, it doesn't effect the function of the guitar.
