Shergold Masquerader SM01-SD Electric Guitar
Back for the 21st century! The Shergold Masquerader SM01-SD takes the iconic 70s guitar and brings it back to life with an ultra cool re-design courtesy of legendary British luthier legend Patrick James Eggle.
Shergold guitars have been around for over 40 years and were seen in the hands of players from top bands including New Order, Joy Division and Genesis. Now firmly back, Shergold guitars have been treated to a modern (although still with a retro vibe!) makeover by Mr.Patrick James Eggle himself.
This Shergold SM01SD Masquerader model features a solid mahogany body that is attached to a bolt-on, satin finished, rosewood (yes rosewood!) neck. The hand burnished neck is super smooth, allowing you to zip up and down the neck without any of that gloss finish tackiness with many players dislike. The rosewood neck is topped with a matching rosewood fingerboard that is adorned with unique hand-inlaid Aluminium line inlays, which are also mimicked on the top side of the neck too.
Loaded with a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups, the Masquerader SM01-SD certainly delivers on the tonal front too. The neck position hosts a USA-made Seymour Duncan SP90 whilst at the bridge is a USA-made Seymour Duncan TB4 humbucker - a pickup configuration that delivers a full bodied, powerful tone. Added versatility come via the push/pull coil split for the humbucker and 3-way pickup switch.
These latest Shergold guitars deliver superb value for money, with premium appointments, an ultra-cool re-design, supreme build quality and a feel that far surpasses its affordable price point.
All Shergold guitars come set-up prior to dispatch by a top team of guitar techs at Patrick James Eggles UK site.
