I bought this guitar a few weeks ago as test to see how easily I could hand paint a guitar. Its plays fantastically and I have lowered the action to make sure its as low as it can go without fret buzz.
The design on this guitar is front, back and side. It took me more than 50 hours to paint, so It really is a piece of artwork, and one of a kind.
The paint has not got a layer of clear coat on it, but it doesn't come off very easily anyway. Obviously if you scratch it with something it will come off. A clear coat would make it last longer. As its hand painted, its not flat and smooth like a digital print. I'll throw in the paint markers I used to paint it as well, just in case you want to make any touch ups.
The hardware is original harley benton, but I have Black Vanson telecaster tuners that I could include in sale, as well as a black bridge and a matte black scratch plate. I have sanded off the Harley Benton logos and put my own headstock sig on there. So you dont have to deal with the embarrassment of being seen with a Harley Benton (I joke)
Baring in mind that this guitar is one of a kind, I would be open to offers around the £160 mark. Offers welcome. Uk sale only. I live in north west england, so it would be more convenient if it could be picked up, but postage can be arranged within the uk if you really want it.
