Berlin Wall - 97#9254

This later model (1997) is the hot rod version of the Berlin - a shredder's dream. This particular example was bought by its original owner when the factory was selling off some un-finished guitars, so the hardware is not all standard, although the essence of the guitar is very much as intended. The main non standard parts are: tuners (Sperzal instead of Schaller), trem (original Floyd Rose instead of Schaller) and pickups (EMGs instead of Seymour Duncans).

Specification:

Body - alder body with maple top

Neck - mahogany set neck with 24 medium/jumbo frets on a rosewood fingerboard

Bridge/Tuners - Floyd Rose locking trem with Sperzel tuners

Pickups - EMG 85 & 89 humbuckers

Controls - Volume, tone, 3 way toggle

 

Condition:

This guitar came with an Eggle branded GigBag but no paperwork - the gigbag has since been replaced by a genuine Hiscox/Eggle hardcase, correct for the guitar's age. The condition is almost as new, mainly due to the fact that it was originally sold by the factory as incomplete and it probably spent many years out of use before the "project" was completed. It's had a "homemade" truss rod cover fitted and also a "homemade" rear cavity cover, but apart from that it's near mint.
