FS: BRAND NEW HOHNER HTA490 'THE ARTIST' - RE-ISSUE OF PRINCE'S GUITAR - UK

Hello Jemsiters,

I have for sale a brand new, unplayed, factory fresh Hohner HTA490 'The Artist' guitar. This is a re-issue of the famous 'The Prinz' guitar used by Prince throughout his entire career.

The guitar features a soft rock maple body, flame maple top in Honey Amber finish with a compound radius maple neck and maple fretboard. It is accented with "Tortise Shell" pickguard, bridge guard and headstock overlay and chrome hardware. The guitar has a string-through-body design, a Strat-style bridge with individual adjustable saddles, Tesla VR-1 Single Coil Alnico pickups at the bridge and neck and Wilkinson "mini" style 18:1 high ratio tuners. Apparently Hohner worked with Prince's guitar tech to ensure this re-issue is as close as possible to Prince's version that he plays regularly. Specifications are:

· Soft Rock Maple Body

· Tiger Flame Maple book-matched top and back with Walnut “skunk” stripe

· Tortoise-shell binding

· 25.5” scale 1 pc. Maple Neck w/ Walnut "skunk stripe"

· Dunlop™ 6105 Fretwire

· Wilkinson™ mini-style 18:1 high ratio tuning machines

· Tesla™ custom-select Alnico VR-1 single coil pickups

· 3-way “Blade” pickup selector

· Master Volume and Tone Controls

· Custom-design Hardshell case INCLUDED!

This guitar is very hard to get hold of, and I'm not aware of any others being available in the UK right now! I have 25 pictures of the exact guitar for sale, they can be found here: http://s283.photobucket.com/albums/k...0The%20Artist/

A video explaining the HTA490 can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDRsOtPgOnE

Price is £800 delivered anywhere in the UK, will ship outside the UK but it will be a bit more depending on where you are. If you have any questions, please get in touch and I'll answer them ass soon as possible.

Thanks
