PRS Paul Reed Smith / McCarty Soapbar / 2004 / Goldtop / Guitar
For offer is my 2004 PRS USA McCarty Soapbar Goldtop. The neck appears unmarked and plays beautifully, it's Rosewood fingerboard is unchipped and the frets show very little if any sign of wear. Moon inlays.
The body is well finished and has a few minor scrapes. On the rear there is the usual "Buckle rash" that's so common on any guitars that have been actually used! This is however not through the lacquer and can only really be seen when looking for it. There is also a dent in the lacquer on the upper bass bout, this is possibly stand damage, but it has cracked (but not chipped) the lacquer. The beautiful goldtop is virtually unmarked.
All electrics are fully working and crackle free. The twinned P90 pickups do everything that they're meant to be - they have the dynamics of single coils but with more meat!
The guitar is set up with a brand new set of Ernie Ball Strings and action and intonation are spot on (the first time I've ever had a "wraparound" bridge!
The strap buttons are Schaller straplocks and I'll include the relevant "strap ends" for the buyer.
The case (as pictured) is a PRS standard case, and this in rather "used" condition, with a couple of rips in the tolex covering - one quite significant - it is however fully functional, all catches work. Basically the case has done what it's meant to do and protected the guitar well - and it will continue to do so for years yet!

POSH Guitars, UK
Philip's Old Second Hand Guitars (POSH Guitars) Has arisen not only out of my indefatigable enthusiasm for all things wooden with strings, but also from my love of music and creativity.
I firmly believe in a Creator God , who in his creativity gave us a gift. That gift being music, and in our expression of music we give voice to our passion for God.
I am not a company, but I buy guitars of a high quality, use them for a while and then sell them on. Sometimes this allows me to make a small profit, and I shift that profit on into financing the supply of quality instruments for Christian Musicians who are actively working in a recognised Church fellowship.
In this regard I'm happy to announce that Harvey Gerlitz has allowed me to distribute his Guitar Care Products in the UK, and hopefully through these establish a finance base to expand this mission.
In addition to resourcing Christian worship and creativity, 10% of any profits will be automatically passed on to financing Christian work in Africa, building orphanages to care for the victims of the AIDS epidemic there.
All items purchased will be despatched within 24 hours of received payment. Postage in the UK is by First Class postage, outside the UK it's by Air Mail.
