FS: Sims Custom Shop SURF GREEN Single Cut - Carved Top - Hardtail

You are looking at a BRAND NEW Sims Custom Shop Single Cut Carved Top. This guitar has the BEST of everything, and is made in the USA by us from start to finish. Below are some of the specs:

- Poplar Body
- Hard Maple Neck
- Rosewood Fingerboard - 24 frets 25.5 in scale - offset Paua Abalone dots
- Wide Fat Neck profile (very similar to a Tele)
- Chrome Hardware (Kmobs, selector switch tip, strap buttons, screws, Sims logo, etc)
- Chrome Gibson Burstbucker Pro pickups in the bridge and neck
- Chrome nashville style tune-o-matic bridge
- Locking Sperzel Tuners in Satin Silver
- All fret work done by Joe Glaser at Glaser Instruments in Nashville, TN on his $140,000 PLEK machine....probably one of the best if not THE best fret guys in the world.
- New hardshell case
- FLAWLESS Mirror Slick Fender Surf Green paint
- Switchcraft electronics - Sheilded cavity and electronic cavity cover
- The 1st and current ONLY Surf Green Single Cut we've done, so its really one of a kind! The 2nd Single Cut to be made.
- Natural Binding
- Weight 8.5 lbs
- Graphite nut

This guitar has so much tone. Very very warm on the bottom end and very bright and clear highs. It really sounds great all the way across the frequency. On distortion channel it has tons of sustain, hits pinch harmonics with ease, and plays like butter....you really couldn't ask for a better playing or sounding guitar. Serial # 1010 SG-1 (1st Surf Green)

$2199 shipped.

If your interested or have any other questions feel free to let me know! We need to sell the guitar to finish up some other projects we're currently doing. Guitar is ready to go to its new home and is ready to plug in and play!

We also have 3 Single Cut 5A flame top hardtails and 1 Double Cut Tremelo 5A flame top thats almost done.

Re: FS: Sims Custom Shop SURF GREEN Single Cut - Carved Top - Hardtail

Several people have asked me why we chose to go with Poplar and what does it sound like. Poplar is a stringy, dense, yet lightweight hardwood that is unusually resonant. Poplar, when used in solid-body electric guitars, has an exceptionally crisp sound, often described as "spirited" and "bouncy" - even "funky."

I took this decription from Fender's website.......

"One of the softer hardwoods, its very resonant with a meaty tone. This wood is being used by many electric guitar manufacturers as a substitute for alder as it is quite similar in tone."
So its used in alot of Fenders and quite a few Jacksons from the mid to late 80's & Carvins in the mid to late 80's, Ibanez's Prestige S2170, Parker Fly's, etc just to name a few.

Price lowered $500 to $1699!! Now this is a STEAL guys!

The only reason I'm dropping the price down so low is b/c I have ALOT of medical bills that need to be paid from where I had two brain surgeries last year to remove a brain tumor. This isn't far from what we actually have in the guitar.

E-mail me at [email protected] if your interested.

Thanks!
