With Gaphtech ghost modular pickup saddles installed complete with Musicman hard case


This guitar has been my pride and joy for the last 2 years, it`s a great guitar to play, apart from the usual musicman features it also has the benefit of having Gaphtech ghost modular pickup saddles fitted into the bridge, with a Graphtech expander installed inside the cavity of the guitar.

This enables you to be able to connect the guitar to pieces of equipment such as a Roland Gr-55 with infinite sound and instrument capabilities, here is a link to demo of me using this guitar with a Roland Gr-55 the keyboard sound is this guitar.

The ghost Hexpander MIDI interface system adds MIDI capability to almost any guitar or bass. Plug your guitar into pitch-to-MIDI converters by Roland or Axon and enter the MIDI sound universe. The Hexpander MIDI interface provides responsive and accurate tracking unequaled be any other system on the market today.

There are none of these for sale on Ebay, and probably non available in the U.K. with a professionally installed Graphtech ghost modular pick up installed, (Ernie ball will install one of these for you for around £1,500 plus the price of the guitar)

I will let this go for £900 (they usually go second hand for more than this price without the ghost saddles). might consider swapping for another good quality guitar with a similar value, e.g £1,800 when it was new.
