    These are all available for trade or sale - I'm open to straight trades, trades plus or minus cash, or multiple items for one, etc.. I'm primarily interested in guitars, but I'm also open to nice basses, certain amps, digital modeling gear, and high end laptops (maybe some PC's too). My favorite guitar brand are PRS, Anderson, Mayones, Suhr, Ibanez, McNaught, Amfisound, Aristides and Jackson, but I'm open to pretty much everything, so please don't be shy!

    Feel free to PM or e-mail me: adamofangels@gmail.com

    Chambered Semi-Hollow Swamp Ash Body
    Maple Neck
    Rosewood Fretboard
    Single-Coil/P-90 Type Pickups
    Hardtail Bridge
    Medium-C Neck Profile

    This is a rare/limited edition color, in great shape. The only "imperfections" are some really minor marks on the pickguard, but I can't find anything on the guitar itself.

    Price: $1300

    Description: Mayones Setius Pro Custom - Silver - 9/10 condition

    Mahogany body
    Maple top
    Mahogany neck with maple stringets
    Ebony fretboard
    Schaller Floyd Rose
    WCR Darkburst neck pickup
    BKP Blackhawk bridge pickup
    CTS 500k pots
    Bumblebee caps
    Switchcraft jack and switch

    This guitar is a total workhorse monster. The build quality is absolute top notch to begin with, but all of the electronics were swapped out for top shelf stuff, and it now sounds better than virtually any guitar I can think of. It has the tonal spirit of a Les Paul, but with more harmonics, and no mud. Playability-wise, you can set the action lower than any other guitar is capable of if you want. The Schaller Trem is the best floyd type available, and the guitar stays in tune basically no matter what you do with it.

    The color is hard to photograph, and looks gold-ish in these pictures, but it's more of a flat silver color. Gorgeous in person.

    Conditionwise: there's the slightest bit of oxidation built up on the trem screws (totally cleanable), there are a couple of very slight impressions on the back of the neck (sort of like a short hairline, just an impression - very small), possibly the faintest of polishing/surface scratches and such, and along the control cavity there's the strangest thing: a small bit of the wood is showing on the edge, but its under the clearcoat and there is no sign of it ever having been tampered with. I think it came from the factory like this, and the previous owner must have colored over it with a black sharpy or something because it wasn't until the whole guitar was cleaned that this was even revealed. You would easily miss it most times. Anyway, this is also a rather insignificant imperfection, and not immediately noticeable. Just wanted to point it out here. Also, one of the inlays is missing, but that’s an easy fix, as it’s just a regular dot that any luthier could fit.

    Price: $2000

    Description: Caparison Dellinger 7 - 9.8/10 condition

    Mahogany Body
    Maple Neck
    Rosewood Fretboard
    Schaller Floyd Rose
    Caparison Pickups

    This is a relatively plain 7 string that somehow managed to look classy. It also outplayed most 7 strings I can think of, with low action even on the low B.

    There may be an almost invisible indentation or something on it somewhere, but it's been babied all of its life, and looks like it.

    Price: $2000

    Ebony Fretboard
    24.75"
    Schaller Floyd Rose
    Caparison Neck Pickup
    BKP Blackhawk Pickup
    Reuinion Blues Caparison Softshell Case

    You might find a few extremely light polishing swirls, due to the gloss black finish, but its extremely clean.

    Price: $2000

    Description: Washburn USA Nuno N7 - Vintage Distressed - 9.8/10 condition

    Aged Alder Body
    Birdseye Maple Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    Seymour Duncan Pickups
    Floyd Rose Tremolo
    Buzz Feiten Tuning System

    Rare guitar, and every ounce of the high quality the Nuno guitars are famous for. It has a factory relic thing going on, so the condition is as it should be.

    Price: $2000

    Description: Ibanez Prestige RGT-3120 - Twilight Violet - 9.8/10 condition

    Mahogany Body
    High Grade Flamed Maple Top
    3-Piece Maple Neck
    Bound Rosewood Fretboard
    Ultra 3 Neck Profile
    Dimarzio Pickups
    Edge Pro Tremolo

    I'm super unsure about selling this, but here it is anyway. These are virtually impossible to find in this good of condition - its not 100% mint, but the only mark I can find is a pen-tip sized clear coat ding on the back. In my opinion, this is the coolest Prestige Ibanez has ever produced, and none of their current offerings are comparable in terms of specs or quality. The Ultra 3 neck profile isn't thin and flat like a regular Ibanez neck, but instead feels more like a strat or ESP neck (still reasonably thin, but C shaped). The top and color are simply over the top beautiful, even though my pictures barely show it.

    Price: $2200

    Description: Ibanez Prestige RG-652mqfxs - Deep Wine Doomburst - 10/10 condition

    Mahogany Body
    Quilted Maple Top
    Maple/Walnut Neck
    Bound Birdseye Maple Fretboard
    Dimarzio Pickups
    Gotoh Locking Tuners
    Gibraltar Fixed Bridge

    This is one of 12 from a limited run. I bought two of them (the other one is listed on Reverb as well), and haven't played either more than 2 hours, so they're effectively brand new. The color and top on these are really difficult to photograph, but they're among the best looking Ibbies I've ever seen, and I'm basically an Ibanez nerd.

    Price: $2200

    Description: Ibanez Prestige RG-752mqs-tv - Twilight Violet - 10/10 condition

    Mahogany Body
    Maple + Walnut Neck
    Birdseye Maple Fretboard
    Dimarzio Pickups
    Lo Pro Edge Tremolo

    This is one of 12 guitars in a limited run in late 2017. It’s one of the coolest guitars I’ve ever had, and it both feels and sounds absolutely amazing. I don’t necessarily want to get rid of it, but I’m not playing it at the moment, so here it is. It’s 100% like new and has less than 6 hours of play on it.

    Price: $2300

    Description: Jackson HT6 Misha Mansoor - Tiger Eye - 9.9/10 condition

    Alder Body
    Quilted Maple Top
    Maple Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    Hipshot Bridge
    Hipshot Locking Tuners
    BKP Juggernaut Pickup Set

    I’ve owned maybe 5 or 6 of these now, and this is by far the best one, both in terms of playability and aesthetics - just check out the top. I can’t find any flaws on it, so I’d call it mint or so close there’s hardly any difference.

    Price: $2500

    Figured Maple Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    Stainless Steel Frets
    Music Man Tremolo w/Piezo
    Schaller Locking Tuners
    Dimarzio Illuminator Set

    Light weight, ergonomic, and really versatile guitar. The body style is a little strange until you’re actually holding it, and then it makes sense. This one has been played very little and doesn’t show signs of wear.

    Dimarzio Illuminator Pickups
    Music Man Tremolo w/ Piezo
    Schaller Locking Tuners

    Clean as can be - if there are any imperfections whatsoever, they're so minute that I can't find them. These are, as far as I can tell, the highest spec guitars Music Man makes.

    Description: Knaggs Severn X - 9.7/10 condition

    Alder Body
    Maple Top
    Spalted Maple Pickguard
    Flamed Maple Neck
    14” Radius
    25.5” Scale
    Seymour Duncan Pickups
    Knaggs Tremolo
    EVO Frets

    From what I understand, this is the first Severn X ever made, and it’s as awesome as it looks. It kills every Strat you’ve ever played without outright replacing them.Theres a few really minor scratches on it, but it’s overall in babied condition.

    Price: $3000

    Description: PRS Hollowbody II SC - 9.4/10 condition

    Mahogany Neck and Sides
    Flamed Maple Top and Back
    Bound Rosewood Fretboard
    PRS 57/08 Pickups


    Overall good condition, with an odd impression on the side and a couple of super tiny dings on the edges. Sounds and plays wonderful.

    Mahogany Body
    Tier 2 Figured Maple Top
    Mahogany Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    BKP Pickups

    Its not so usual to come across a Kenai with three pickups. This guitar plays as well as it looks, and of course, covers a crazy tonal range. There are a couple of scratches/scuffs on the back of the guitar, but it’s overall very clean.

    Price: $3200

    Swamp Ash Body
    Curly Maple Top
    Maple Neck
    Birdseye Maple Fretboard
    Seymour Duncan Pickups

    This is a one of a kind custom Boden made in the USA shop (now closed and moved to Sweden). Aside from a few really tiny indentations that you'll probably completely overlook, it's in excellent, clean shape.

    Description: Aristides 070 - Matte Orange - 9.8/10 condition

    Arium Body and Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    Stainless Steel Frets
    Hipshot Bridge
    Hipshot Locking Tuners
    Seymour Duncan Pickups

    This is an 070 from 2015 with an Ebony Fretboard, which is no longer an option on Aristides guitars. It feels to be a little heavier in weight than all of the other Aris I’ve played, so I’m not sure exactly how much lighter the Richlite material is than ebony. All the same, this thing sounds enormous and plays as well as any 7 string I can think of. Hardshell case included.

    Price: $3300

    Description: Knaggs Kenai Tier 2 - Transparent Black - 9.7/10 condition

    Tier 2 Curly Maple Top
    Mahogany Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    59 Neck Profile
    24.75" Scale Length
    12" Radius
    Seymour Duncan Seth Lover Pickups

    This is easily the best playing Knaggs of all the ones I've owned/played. It's the first one I've been across that gives PRS a hard run for their money. Aside from some super .inor surface scratches/polishing swirls, it's extremely clean.

    Price: $3500

    Description: Suhr Modern Custom - Transparent Purple - 9.8/10 condition

    Basswood Body
    Chevron Flamed Maple Top
    3A Birdseye Maple Neck
    3A Birdseye Maple Fretboard
    Stainless Steel Frets
    Modern Eliptical Profile (.800 - .850)
    10" - 14" Radius
    Suhr ML Standards and SSH+ Pickups

    This is one of the best guitars I've ever owned, and I've had no fewer than 30 Suhr Moderns. The pictures do it absolutely no justice - it has one of the best tops and necks I've seen on any guitar. I'm only selling it because I have a short list of guitars I absolutely must have and need to free up some space for them.

    Price: $3500

    Description: Mayones Regius 25th Anniversary - 9.5/10 condition

    Eye Poplar Top

    Swamp Ash Body
    Maple, Mahogany, Amazakoe, Wenge 11-piece Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    Dimarzio Titan Pickups
    Seymour Duncan Liberator installed
    ABM Bridge
    Sperzel Locking Tuners
    Earvana Compensated Nut
    25.4" Scale
    16" Radius

    This has been my favorite by quite a margin. The playability is amazing, it sings on leads, chimes on cleans, and covers virtually every inch of ground on rhythms/distorted tones. Why am I getting rid of it? In a way, I'm not sure, but I haven't been playing it as much lately, and I've been eyeing up a few other guitars that I'll ultimately replace this with.

    This is the 25th Anniversary model from Mayones, of which only 3 were made. I've actually never come across another one of these, and never even read any forums posts from another owner. Mayones has gotten immensely popular in the last 5 years, and this is already a cool collectible.

    Condition: Although this guitar has been played a lot, its also exceptionally clean. Still, it has a few minor cosmetic things: aside from various super light surface scratches and polishing swirls, it might have a few almost undetectable minor imperfections (indentations or similar). The finish is also slightly faded under the clearcoat in spots when you hold it in light at a certain angle. Lastly, there are a few very faint fissures next to a few of the side position markers in the neck binding. These have been there for years and won't get worse.. they're almost invisible to begin with. NOTE: None of this is significant or glaringly obvious, I just wanted to cover everything for the sake of full disclosure.

    Price: $3500

    Description: PRS Custom 24 Floyd Artist - Black Gold - 9.8/10 condition

    Mahogany Body

    Artist Grade Flamed Maple Neck
    Ebony Fretboard
    PRS \m/ Metal Pickups
    Original Floyd Rose
    Black Gold Finish
    Artist Paisley Case

    My pictures significantly degrade the beauty of this guitar - the top is as good as it gets, the color is much more varied (not straight brown like the pictures), etc.. The only imperfections are the lightest polishing swirls on the back of the guitar.

    Price: $3800

    Gold hardware
    Teal Black Finish

    My pictures don't do the pictures justice, so be sure to look at all of them to get a decent idea.

    Description: 2008 Gibson Les Paul '59 Reissue R9 - 9.5/10 condition

    Mahogany Body (non-weight-relieved)
    High Grade Flamed Maple Top
    One-Piece Mahogany Neck (long tenon)
    Rosewood Fretboard
    Burstbuckers

    This is a well cared for 2008 R9 with the original case and case candy. Its not much heavier than 8lbs, plays immensely well, is gorgeous, etc.. There's very little wear - aside from the slightest bit of buckle rash on the back (and even then its mainly just light scratches), its very clean.

    Price: $5000
