SHERGOLD 12 STRING

shergold 12 string electric guitar

Yes,still available,in France now but i can bring it back soon,it depends on your offer

SHERGOLD 12 STRING

Hallelujah... EXCELSIOR!!!!!!!!

YES I'M VERY INTERESTED!!!!!!!!

Offer... offer????????????? I'll give you about... a hundred bucks (AHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA)...

All kidding aside... maybe I should ask you... what are you asking? What's reasonable... like I've said many years in the past around tax time, I'll be getting my returns soon and I'm ready to purchase a guitar and this one ALWAYS eldues my grasp, but it looks as if I've got a chance now...

Why don't you start and tell me what you want for it and we'll go from there...

SR

SHERGOLD 12 STRING

Good evening,

I am willing to let it go for around £1,200. I feel this is a more than fair price for such a rare model in almost perfect condition: Flamed canadian maple neck, Schaller tuning machines . She plays like a dream, better than the Rickenbacker equivalent, I'm sad to let her go.

Let me know what you think.

SHERGOLD 12

"CEDRIC"...

If memory serves the conversion on that would be roughly... 2400 dollars (American)????????????

Is that correct... if so, I'd be willing to buy it from you... I've been searching for this for a while now...

Let me know and I will take steps to secure it...

Steve R

SHERGOLD 12 STRING

Yes, great,

Yes it's roughly that, I think 2,400 is a bit more, so I am willing to sell it to you for that including the shipping cost to the U.S.

Cedric

Shergold 12 string

That would be fabulous...

Hold it for me PLEASE!!... this SATURDAY (MARCH 3rd) I will have my taxes done... when all comes through I will be able to purchase the guitar (allow time for the tax returns to arrive)...

What a threshold moment this is... timing was good this time...

Give me a total price so I will know what to send you...

SR

SUMMARY OF 12 STRING SHERGOLD

Cedric, and others searching for one of these...

I know I emailed you directly about how stellar this guitar is, but I thought I should include the praise on the website too... after all, if not for this brilliant website I may never have found one... it took about 5 years, but patience and persistence paid off...

After nearly six months I still can't believe my ears... this BEHEMOTH of a guitar has a beautiful 12-STRING chiming quality (12-STRINGS have always reminded me of the sound of the Baroque harpsichord [with amplification and desired effects pedals, of course])...

The action is superb, and, unlike some reports that these are bulky and awkward to play, I must say "No... not at all." It feels great... must be the years of playing the EDS 1275... perhaps that prepared me for this...

Cedric, and those who created this website, thanks again... I couldn't be happier with this guitar... AND OF COURSE, more regards to Marty Willson-Piper and Mike Rutherford for initial inspiration to seek out the SHERGOLD 12-STRING!!!!

KUDOS, BRAVO, EXCELSIOR!!!!!!!

SR

SHERGOLD 12 string

Cedric...

Steve R here... just to let you know my tax returns have arrived so that part of the equation is in place...

I think you said you return to France (by the way, my ancestry is French... last name is RUSSEY, which is believed to be an anglicized version of ROUSEAU) on the 27th of MARCH... Please let me know the total cost and we'll arrange the payment (do you have PAYPAL????)...

Thanks again...

SR

shergold 12 string electric guitar

Hi Steve,i m going to the ups office today to know how much is gonna cost to send the guitar to Sacramento california(that's right?)
I would like to send you pictures i made today to show you the cracks in the body finish,normal for a 40 years old guitar and especialy for the old Shergold,but if you know the brand,you probably know what i m talking about.
my email is karibzh@hotmail.com as i don t really know how to send pictures via this website,so please give me your email,it would be more easy.
Regards
Cedric

SHERGOLD 12 STRING

Sure thing... email me at DOCTORTRISTESSE@aol.com (yes it's based on the song by THE CHURCH... by the way, am I correct, "TRISTE" is a French word for "Sadness"... I ask because I adore THE CHURCH [Marty Willson-Piper used a SHERGOLD], and I believe the word TRISTESSE is the personification of SADNESS... the song deals with envirnomental concerns down in Australia...

Looking forward to the purchase...

SR

shergold 12 string electric guitar

Hi Steve,
i will be in France on tuesday so i will go on wednesday at the post office to check the post cost and will let you know soon next week.
Yes i ve got a paypal account,i think that the most secure way ,they take a commission though but which bank doesn't..
Are you collecting guitars? How do you know the Shergold brand?

Regards

Cédric

: : hello! i'm trying like mad to get a construction date for my shaftesbury rodeo 6. the serial number(or stock number) is 3167,can anyone help?

Hi. I have no idea whether you'll see this, but i've found out that 3167 is the model number, not the serial number, as I have one which is 3167 as well. The Rodeo 12 (the 12 string version) was 3168.

Re: serial number dating for shaftesbury rodeo 6

Hi, did you ever find out? Mines also a 3167.

Shaftesbury 12 string electric

My shaftesbury 12 string electric, has the look of a ricky,!!!! but it has aplate on the back clearly saying is was made in Japan as opposed to the general idea that they were made in Italy - does anyone know when the manufacture was changed?
The guitar is still brilliant and I would think made in the early 70s, would download a photo but do not know how?

Shaftesbury Guitar

I have a Shaftesbury Les Paul Gold Top bought around 1971. Gigged for about 20yrs it still looks and plays like new, maybe even better. The sales person where I bought it (Kingfisher in Fleet Hants.) said it was one of a few released before Gibson made them make some changes to the headstock because it was too close to the original, was this true or was it sales pitch? What would todays value be? Any help would be much appreciated
