    I got a shiny new guitar lately giving into GAS which cost quite a bit and I need to get rid these two guitars to cover as much as I can from the money I've spent. I'm quite reluctant to sell these two guitars as I really like them but I like the new guitar a lot more and the budget needs to be balanced as much as possible. So here are my two offerings:

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:
    Jackson SLAT3-7 in Silver Metallic Grey in really good condition.
    Modifications (if any):
    Changed the stock EMG's to SD Blackouts, the tone pot for an SD pot with a new cap and the jack as it was cutting out, new trem cover.
    Accessories (hardshell case etc):
    Comes with Jackson Hardsehell case, whammy bar and alen keys. I think the case has the key in there but I'll have to check.
    Location (City,State or City,Country):
    Derry, N.Ireland, UK.
    International OK? :
    We'll have to see about shipping costs.
    Contact Info (No Phone #s):
    Shoot me a message here.
    References (eBay or other forum userid):
    edika_123 in ebay and a couple of deals here with itrader feedback.
    Price (include currency and if firm/obo):
    £650 ONO shipped and Paypalled in the UK, which includes full value insurance and next day shipping. If you're close and want to come and pick it up in person and try it out in person then £600. For international I'll see what's the difference from shipped in the UK quoted price and add to that.

    The guitar is in almost mint condition with only the tip of the headstock having a paint chip. Not the worst I have seen but it's still there. The case has a bit of damage as the previous owner was a touring musician and that was courtesy of an airline baggage (ball) fondler. The guitar was checked by a tech the moment I got it and everything is and works as it should. The headstock is not as huge as in person as it appears in the photos and doesn't look as bad. These guitars looked a lot better up close than what Jackson did with their promotional photos.

    The EMG's weren't bad but I do prefer the Blackouts in this. I have them quite low to tame the ridiculous amount of output these pups have, and even though I tried a Dino Cazares set in it, I prefer the Blackouts.

    The guitar plays and sounds great and has Rotosound 10-46 with a 60 for the low B, tuned to B flat. These are quite sought after and rarely come up for sale for a reason. They're quite comparable to their American counterparts in terms of playability but having 3 seven strings, one with passives and one with a 27" scale that both play and sound great makes this a hard but necessary decision to sell.

    No trades please as I need to raise funds. I'll consider offers but please be reasonable. If you're close, pay cash and can pick it up I'll take £50 of the price.

    Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:
    Schecter SLS 6 string in blue in really good condition.
    Modifications (if any): Changed pickups to EMG57/66 set.
    Accessories (hardshell case etc):
    No name Hardshell case that has some damage but will do a good job protecting the guitar for shipping.
    Location (City,State or City,Country):
    Derry, N.Ireland, UK.
    International OK? :
    We'll have to see about shipping costs.

    £650 ONO shipped and Paypalled in the UK, which includes full value insurance and next day shipping. If you're close and want to come and pick it up in person and try it out in person then £450. If you don't want the case I have a guitar box and can double box it which will reduce the cost to £480 shipped or £430 pickup. For international I'll see what's the difference from shipped in the UK quoted price and add to that.

    This guitar is one of the best mid-range instruments I've played and I really enjoy playing it. The neck is comfy and slim, the matte finish makes your hand fly up and down the fretboard and it's super resonant. I don't know if it's the TOM or the guitar itself but it's loud. Due to the SLS body size it's quite light but certainly doesn't feel like a toy. Fit and finish is amazing for the price these sell new. I had absolutely no intention of selling this but the other options I have are more expensive instruments that I'd only sell if it was a real emergency.

    The condition is really good but it has a few scratches on the bottom of the guitar which seem more like it rubbed somewhere and dulled the finish a bit. The pickup rings are a bit cracked but still functional. Easily replaced but I never bothered.

    Even though I liked the sound with the SD Blackouts I was curious to hear the EMG 57/66 set as everyone has been singing praises about them. They are a lot more versatile then the SD's and more dynamic, they have really nice cleans and can go from softer stuff to high gain no problem.

    I'm the second owner and the guitar came without a case. I had this case from another guitar and it seems sturdy enough to ship in and hang onto if you want. If you don't want the case I can send it double boxed as I still have the original box it came in.

    No trades please for the above reason as the Jackson. I'll consider offers but please be reasonable. If you're close, pay cash and can pick it up I'll take £50 of the price.

    I might be interested in the schecter depending on if I can shift a few things.

    Any idea how much postage to Kerry would be?

    Hey man I see through parcel force that it gives me the option for Ireland express with a one day delivery and a price of £33. I also see that I put the wrong price in the Schecter er and that was supposed to be £500 not 650. As shipping is included in the price and that's what I would pay in the UK then it's £500 shipped in Kerry.
