Death [Metal Rock] is Upon Us...
1982 Barry Collier Rebeth Gothic Cross with Ram's Head Pentagram.
This is probably the most unusual 'custom' guitar we have ever offered for sale… featuring a specially shaped 2 inch thick, 19 1/2 x 19 1/2 'Gothic Cross' body of 'ancient' mahogany with a laminated maple top. One-piece bolt-on mahogany neck with a nut width of just under 1 11/6 inches, a medium to thick profile and a scale length of 25 1/2 inches. Ebony fretboard with 22 original jumbo frets and rhombus shaped maple inlays with ebony circles as position markers. Gothic-shaped headstock with brass 'gothic' shaped (false) truss-rod cover with two screws. Individual Schaller M6 machine tuning heads with kidney-shaped brass buttons. The neck is secured to the body by a metal plate with six screws and two rivets. The body and neck of the guitar are finished in black with feint gold pinstripe around the body and the headstock. Three DiMarzio D Activator Humbucking pickups with brass surrounds and outputs of approximately 4.33k each. Specific brass six saddle, individually adjustable bridge and specific brass tailpiece secured to the body by ten screws. There are also three matching brass plates complementing the Gothic design, one either side of the bridge pickup and one behind the bridge. On the back of the body is a seven inch diameter brass plaque engraved with a pentogram encircling a goat's head in the center. The total length of the guitar is 41 inches. There are no controls for the electrics and the input jack is mounted on a gothic-style brass plate to the lower bass edge of the body. There are three gothic-shaped brass plates on the bass, treble and lower edges and also eight bras plates on the four 'cut-outs'. Although there are no controls, the three pickups have been wired together and this is a fully functional axe with surprising playability (apart from the action being a little on the high side) and a very full sound. This piece was built to look 'old' and is in exceptionally fine (9.00) condition. Housed in a black gig-bag (9.00). (#1687)

Special Conditions

We wish to establish an ongoing relationship with you based upon your trust in our knowledge and judgment. To that end: We meticulously inspect in detail every guitar that we offer. We check the finish, all of the electrical components, serial numbers, etc. With over thirty years of experience collecting and handling vintage guitars and our enormous reference library, we bring to bear all that is known about guitar manufacturers, models, and annual production. We provide full, detailed descriptions and specs to each guitar. We openly disclose any and all flaws we discover, in writing. If the instrument is not completely “straight,” we will tell you so and why. We endeavor to conduct ourselves to the highest standard of professional behavior.

We allow a full 48 hour honeymoon period when you buy a guitar from us. Please inspect your new guitar immediately upon receiving it. If you are not 100% satisfied with it we will refund the purchase price in full (less a re-stocking fee of 5%, shipping costs, credit card, Paypal or wire transfer fees) upon return of the guitar, if when it is returned to us it is in exactly the same condition as when sold. Please call us before returning the instrument. Amplifiers are not returnable. All errors and omissions excepted.
