JS Legend - 057

In the early 90s session hero, Jim Sullivan, worked with Patrick Eggle Guitars to produce a signature model to his specification. These conversations resulted in the limited production of 150 guitars known as the JS Legend. This model is perhaps the most illusive and sort after of all the guitars that the company made. This example is no. 57 as indicated by the inlay at the 24th fret. Another interesting feature of this guitar are the initials "GG" also at the 24th fret - a special order by the original owner, Gerry Gillard.

Specification:

Body - maple with 2 piece 4A maple top

Neck - flamed maple set neck with 24 jumbo frets on an ebony fingerboard with falling leaf inlays

Bridge/Tuners - Wilkinson VS100c locking trem with Sperzel locking tuners in black & gold

Pickups - Reflex active humbuckers

Controls - Volume, 3 way toggle, and sweepable mid tone control

 

Condition:

Overall the guitar is in superb condition with the exception of some buckle rash, discreet dings to the rear and minor fret wear. The original Hiscox/Eggle case is almost as new.

 

1993 catalogue price: 1679 plus case (79.50)
