BELTONA (CUSTOM ORDER, SINGLE CONE RESONATOR, 1997, SERIAL NUMBER 102) - FOR SALE....PRICE REDUCTION
This Guitar was a custom order for me in October / November 1996 and completed in April 1997.
Extremely high quality instrument; single cone and body joined at the 14th fret. Steve Evans (luthier) has highlighted that only a small number of 14 fret models were built, unlike the Tricone (circa 70 made) and 12 fret single cones (circa 30 made).
The Guitar is fitted with a Schaller pickup which is fitted on the edge of the resonating cone. There Guitar has no engraving or figurative etching on it; it has a V shaped neck, mother of pearl faced slot headstock.
This has been a well cared for and looked after instrument and the primary reason for sale is that it just isn't getting the use it deserves any longer; it deserves to be played and gigged by someone who can appreciate Steve Evans work and resonators more widely. Steve directed me to this forum on (03.04.19) as the first place to offer the Guitar up for sale.
The Guitar comes with the original case and I also have a separate Pre-Amp available which works well.
I am looking to achieve £1850 for the Guitar given its condition and rarity, or very nearest and close offer.
Looking forward to hearing from you; serious enquirers please. Best regards, Simon
